Sorry it's been so busy. Here's a crappy cell pic of my rear. I'll try to get something better, maybe this weekend. Been working on work, and working on the Jeep like mad the past few weeks.

Thanks for your help with the CB install last night. Interesting enough I couldn't hear you anymore as you drove down the street. CH40 was going in and out.

moved my evap canister last night. It was hanging down pretttty low with the new bumper. It's not 'professional', but it'll work until we lift the gas tank. Then tons more possibilities will open up.

Just with through the whole thread. Very interesting build to say the least. I really like your custom electrical work - very nice! Keep it up!

thanks - I've been trying to build stuff that a) works, b) looks good, and c) doesn't kill my (small) money tree, so yeah, with those three constraints, it's taking forever, and it's 'interesting'......

Finally got the bumper properly attached, with the help of a few friends from the club. We're going wheeling on Saturday, so I wanted to have some good recovery points

Hopefully Saturday's wheeling will generate a few pretty photos too, maybe of my new bumper! No promises, though...

Thanks to Dave for this pic. This was on the way back from wheeling. WJ + 3" + 2 ft of snow = Stuckfest.

No; I was actually trying to get the backlight RED, so I put a red film back there on top of the EL panel. Result? Blue. I'm glad you like it, cuz I don't!! I'm going to be looking at other ways to get it red at some point...

Will do...It's getting dark over here, so I'll have to do it tomorrow. I also ordered myself another goodie which won't help wheeling any, but it'll be nice on long trips

did you finally send away for that girlfriend? I'm tired of our wheeling trips being a sausage fest. We need more chicks in our club.

haha. We do.

But alas, no, I don't speak Russian, so I didn't send away for a GF.

You did give me an idea, though, of someone to invite on a run. She doesn't drive a Jeep, but she's got some friends who do, and apparently she likes riding along...

No, you're going to kill me for this goodie, but I'm sorry, it's gonna be REAL nice on road trips. More to come.....
