Here's the trim job:


It flows with the tire and fender line much better now. Cut maybe 1/2" in from original line

Here's a MONSTER lobster my friend grabbed this past weekend on our fishing trip (its white because he's trying to preserve the shell)



And my homework

Planning on replacing TRE's in December's Winter break for a piece of mind, and possibly IRONMAN FAB or IRO fixed control arms (front upper,lower, and rear) next year just to know I have new bushings too. I dont think I'm gonna lift the jeep any higher so fixed will be fine.

Alright, well the past day and a half i've been running priorities in my head, and knocking off whats from needs, and needs from the essentials.

Decided to order a speedo/trans shifting corrector like gatorayde and theksmith from https://www.motomummy.com/store/prod...roductid=18212 . the universal model U1 is the one to purchase if anyone is interested. i figured i'm not letting this Jeep go, especially since I bought it stock from my dad, and I would like to give the jeep some mpg back (from correct shift points). After this, TRE's

I will update when it comes in...oh yeah did i say the quote for shipping to Hawaii is F R E E?!!? HEEEEEEEECK YES!

sooo this is what my list looks like, prioritized:
- motomummy speedo/trans shift corrector
- tie end rods
- trans oil, transfer case oil
- new headlights, new hid low beams, and swap high beam bulbs for hid 2.5k & at the same time, rock lights like Omelet

what do you guys think? i already have the motomummy corrector on the way and bought that first since i dont want the jeep lugging around at incorrect speeds, and not shifting when suppose to...

well....came out of the gym and what do i see?

my driver-side JKS quick disconnect pointing down soooo someone pulled my clevis pin and took it

why do i come to that conclusion?? cause 1. it was there before i left and 2. you know how much PRESSURE it would take to take off a clevis pin while driving on the street?!?!

F***! whatevers....i have a huge *** cotter pin in its place for now.

THEN, on the way home, whats this?? DEATH WOBBLE! go underneath and had my friend turn the steering wheel, the tie end rod from draglink to axle is "popping" in place, so its time to change...good thing that was next on my list!

I guess i'll REALLY get on that now....i'm glad i have a car to drive in the meantime, cause right now, its just gonna SIT.

Possibly do the motomummy tonight, i calculated it on their website, and i'm about 8% off, 3-4mph at 50mph (GPS reads 50, gauge reads 45/46) which, in the long run/highway, can affect the 5th gear OD shifts.

what a ramble i just did....i guess its cause i'm ****'n pissed

That sucks, sorry to hear it...

My local home depot has pins that look very close to those that came with my JKS pins, you should see what you can find there.
