today we worked on installing the factory hitch. when we took everything off we found that the frame was a little bent in on the left rear probably due to snatching with the factory tow hook. i want to fix it sometime in the future, but for now we just mounted the hitch up.




was going to paint the rear bumper but didn't have enough bedliner with me, so for now just did the tow hitch bezel.






the other thing we did was finish up the a-pillar light brackets. still have to buy lights though..

Any way you could get your buddy to make me a pair?

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

i was going to woryy about once i get back. problem is the way it's cracked, it's hard to come up with a story

finally did my alignment today rides a whole lot better now, even with the sway bar disco'ed. will be needing offset balljoints soon. when i put the skid plate on i had this vibration from the exhaust rattling against the skid, mostly when it was in drive, technician fixed the hanger for me, no charge and i didn't even mention it, so that was cool of him.

a few things i got to get done this week before my trip: get a spare tire, bottle jack, removable rear seat mod, oil change, a visit to the jy for a few things

tru. i just pulled my ball joints. surprisingly, the lowers aren't offset. getting to them and pressing them out is a PITA. having air tools is a big plus
