What did you do to your XJ today?

I know, I know, I borrowed the idea from over yonder in the YJ forum but I thought it was a good idea because people can post what they did to it on a daily or weekly basis. Basic and major repairs and mods. This way we can also use it as another reference for questions about things that get asked frequently.....or not. Plus people can use it to see what they can do to their Jeep that other people have already done and can ask questions about how to do it and such.

Anywho, I'll be the first. Honestly I haven't done anything to my XJ in a few weeks because I'm driving an MJ until I have time to fix the rear end but I'm still lingering around over here (MJ forum is kinda dead).
Today I went to the store and bough a pair of ball joints and front shocks for the truck, hopefully make it ride better. I'll get them put in tomorrow.

Come on guys, what did you do to it today??

I put $15 into my gas tank yesterday. I tuned in a new radio station this morning. I listen to Bob and Tom on the way to school in the morning.

$15 of gas here and established my ps pump needs replacing. It's leaving a few drips after driving and is almost drained... I will probably wash her up tomorrow morning and put my roof rack back on. Last time I rinsed it off it left water spots on my new cheap paintjob... lol, plus its dirty now

I installed some $10 discos and also installed a DPG Belly Skid, had to have my stock cat moved back to install it properly. I went to a shop to get the cat moved and also had them move my exhaust tip higher. Wish I had a pic of it but no digi camera at the moment though.

Tomorrow, if I get around to it, c4x4 tow hooks & brackets.

I drove to work with stock wheels and tires that i just sold on ebay in the back. Then a kid from maryland piched them. Then put my LAST soaking of PB Blaster on my bolts before I do my lift.

I changed my flat tire and decided I like the look of the spare rim better than the rims currently on the other three tires and the flat. Plus I put in 10 gas and discovered that I need to clean the dirt and rocks outta the back of my rims because that is throwing my rims outta balance!!

i went up to a local state park for a photo shoot w/ my new paint job (pics will be posted as soon as I can find the USB cable for my camera). also, reconnected speaker wire that had come loose from the terminal on my sub box (anyone w/ a reg box in the rear, notice how the sub box slides around a lot on the metal rails? I remedied this with two metal brackets screwed to a piece of MDF on the back of the rear seats)
