Went trail riding today and she performed great. Did a ride with The Orlando Jeep Club through some trails of the Ocala National Forest. Everything worked great, didn't break anything (that I know of yet) and only got stuck in the friggen sugar sand.

how are your bushings on the control arms? one of the major reasons why i decided to go with a lift kit instead of bb's was because most of my bushings were shot to sh*t and my control arms needed to be ungraded. and i also really wanted 33".

Installed my new antenna mount. Really happy with the way it turned out.






This is where the wire enters the cabin

Weekend update. Washed and waxed the Jeep. Changed oil, refilled diff fluid, disconnected the VIC, Cleaned the throttle body and IACV, installed new CB antenna and mount and detailed the interior. I'd say it was successful weekend

I'm waiting on a Cobra 19 DXIV to come in the mail. I'll hopefully be installing it next week. I'm looking to put it in place of the VIC because this is the second VIC that I've bought and it's starting to ring constantly while I drive.

I'm lucky enough to have a trucker for a father. So he's got a whole cabinet of random CB's and antennas laying around.

I'll look at some of the smaller ones that do. I like the ones that are about half the size like this one.
