As far as my XJ, I've spent most of the morning working on fixing rust. I thought it was just some surface stuff, turned out I had three egg sized holes and two small holes in the roof. I preped everything, sprayed it with a rust stopper, and used mesh and bondo to patch them. I was going to weld in patches but got lazy . Now I'm waiting for that to cure. I LOVE Minnesota winters !
been thinking d-windows, but soft 8s will do if theyve still got them at the local tire shop. i might be getting a job at that shop too..got my fingers crossed!

iron rock has a really cheap prototype they are working on and theyre not done yet. might be a little bit but will be worth the wait

this is also true! if youve seen my rig, you know the tires look like donuts now..


today, drove it to work and back and went over to a friends and back. thats about it.

I picked up 120ft of steel tubing today. I am going to be making rocker rails and possible exo-cage it. I really want to exo cage it but right now I don't see a good way of doing it. I want to exo it in a way where i can still take off my front and rear bumbers. If I can't find a way to do it then Ill just do a full roll cage.

Replaced the rear main seal on the MJ. No more leaks.

Also put on some longer swaybar links. I'd been running without a front swaybar for a couple of weeks because the stock links were too short when I did the BB. I hated being bar-less.

And I swapped out the O2 sensor.

I was wondering why my LR tire lost 10psi in an 10hr period. I ended up finding a nail. I started pricing out new tires as my current ones are to the point where if I replace two, I might as well do all four. I just can't really justify spending $700 for BFG AT's at this point, so I've been thinking about going with Goodyear Wrangler Radial's. I can get four installed for under $400 at Discount Tire. They have an AT tread pattern that looks like it would do pretty good in snow, and off road. I need new wheels to, mine are rusted to hell. We shall see...

Yesterday I wheeled it pretty hard. Need a new crossmember in a BAD way. The middle of it is sitting higher then before I did my TC drop. So today.... New crossmember and install, new taillight and install, try to fix a crushed rocker, try to pop out a dented endcap.

Still a good day for the most part though

I almost crapped my pants in my XJ today! I was trucking down the highway at about 65 when I got Crazy Death Wooble. I had the doors off so I could see the Driver side tire going back and forth by about 10 degrees each way, which is pretty damn extreme for 60+ MPH.

I also built some flat fenders for it over the weekend to make the state trooper that pulled me over for "insufficient fenders" happy. I have the fronts mostly done now I need to work out the details on the backs
