I will have to take some after she gets a bath. What a fun car to drive. I got some good news on the car today. She passed inspection! Haha. I was a little nervous because I didn't give it a good once over when I bought it and it didn't have or come with a sticker. I gave it a good once over when it was on the lift. My buddy works at a local jeep dealer and lets me in to DIY on the WJ so I'll have access for the E46 too. It worked out well. Some hoses need replaced but they are only seeping so no rush. No major repairs needed for now, just some nice to have preventative maintenance needs to be done. Once I get the savings back up to par I will start more work on the WJ. Hopefully later in the summer.

Thanks to those that mentioned their windshield was covered. Mine is too and is going to be installed at an indoor shop this weekend.

Thanks. I have no idea where to go next. Seems like my next step is going to be an expensive one no matter which way I go.

Changed an oil line and PS hose in the BMW today but took the WJ for a cruise through the mountains. No wheeling yet since it's still mud season.

there is something wrong with this sentence. i think it should say No wheeling yet since it's not mud season. living in FL that is all i know how to do.

Haha, when I lived in a VA it was common and searched out. Up here it is illegal in most towns. They don't want the snowmobile trails to get rutted up. Plus, as I get older I hate mud more and more. I prefer a good technical run up a rock garden rather than a mudslinging adventure. It takes days to get that mud out!!!

New toy. This will get built into a hunting/camping trailer for tow behind the jeep. I still haven't decided if I'm going shorties or LA's for the WJ yet. And now I will sink some $$ into the trailer so WJ is on hold again.

nice trailer! i would just save up for the long arms the first time. i got shorties all around and now im building long arms. ive paid for a BB and shocks then OME coils and shocks and now im on 6.5 IRO coils and new shocks. honestly i would have saved a ton by just getting claytons the first time

That's what I'm thinking. I am leaning toward the RC LA's and clayton coils. I was thinking the 4.5" coils but you're probably right, I should just go 6" and be done with it.

Itjust depends on what size tires you want to plan for. I think 4.5 would be a good size. I'm at 6.5 and its a little tall to be honest but that's what I get for trying to clear 37s

Right now I'm wishing it would stop raining so I can paint the half doors and get them put on the jeep.
