Changed the oil and washed her. Nothing too special.

looks good steamer..you wouldnt happen to have anymore pics of the rear tire carrier on your rig would ya?

also, i dont see the color change on your hatch webdog..just upclose or what?

as for me today..nothing except worrying about the wind flipping it..haha. i was at work and it was 80 degrees and no wind. i pushed a bunch of carts in and then i walked to the exit doors only to find a co-worker of mine come running in. he was like "dude, you shouldve seen it. i was out there just sitting when out of nowhere this wind came and its still goin but it blew the kiddie cart across the parking lot and it nailed a mini-van and put a huge *** dent in the bumper. sure enough i went outside and holy **** it was windy. it almost blew me over. i got back in and sand was pelting me and i could barely see my jeep (100ft away) but i could tell it was rocking like crazy every time the wind hit it.

then the wind blew the doors open breaking one of the locks and almost smashing out the windows. we had all 6 people grab the doors (including me) and hold on. it was pretty damn hard to keep them shut. the manager called the outside yard members in for an emergency and the store got locked down. then came a little bit of rain and it was over in 5 minutes. turns out it was just alot of wind (65+mph)..i thought it was a tornado for sure. i was sent out to get the carts (2, the kiddie cart and a normal cart) and they were on the far side of the lot..both upside down on the grass.

the kiddie cart was fine but the other cart didnt make it. the front was tweaked nearly 90 degrees. it was totalled. no damage to the jeep but the minivan that got hit has a huge dent in it and a long deep scratch down the side.

thats about it for me and other than getting excited for the roof rack and lift and thinking about buying a welder..nothing really new.

Well it wasnt on my cherokee but my buddy has a 2wd 99 xj that we installed an amp and speakers in, plus another friend came over with his newly aquired zj and we wired in his head-unit, amp and subs. Both sounded awesome and i envy them since i have a stock stereo. Probably picking up an amp, speakers, and a single 10" sub (since mine is the most trail oriented) for install next weekend.

Its well worth it, was used a few times as an anchor yesterday to winch a TJ, and a Zuki that I usually wheel with up over a ledge. Besides its good looks, its very stout.

Or the generic cheese puffs (wannabe cheetos). Those can hold more water...
