Went ahead and painted my rims to today

Also made in dash switches for my winch, no more having to leave the window cracked open for the controller and getting covered in mud

Going to take my physical and drug test for cummins tomorrow a very nice pay bump in 1yr-1yr 1/2 I hope to be making double what I do now. Needless to say the jeep will be upgraded very nicely soon!

Got around to putting my switches where my vic used to be. The fake wood plate there on is temporary, until I grab up some very thin sheet metal.

Adjusted tv cable, only took a few mins to to. Deffinitely can tell the difference trans isn't searching for gears and doesnt go hard into 2nd like it used to. I also noticed that it doesnt want to downshift as much either.

Went wheeling today

Only trail damage is my rear pass. bottom shock bolt came off and bent the shock a little :thumbsdown:
Threw on a new bolt/nut and went on wheeling with no problems
Only a few pics for now, nothing to exciting I'll have some videos up hopefully tomorow that are much better!

Flushed my cooling system today, it was horribly dirty. (po decided to put stop leak in it )
Since letting it sit and warm up it does not seem to be getting as hot as it usually would.
It would crawl up to 230 if i let it and turning the heat on brought it right back down to 210ish. So far hasn't gone above 200 yet.
When having the top radiator hose off flushing out the old coolant/water the t stat kicked in and shut when it was supposed to
and the pump seemed to be pushing the water out fine.

The only thing I can think of if it gets super hot again is that the radiator is shot, seems like the original.

Finally got around to putting my Iro rear coils in today that gave been laying in my closet for a few months : rofl:

The ride is alot stiffer compared to the front swap. Netted 22in from hub to fender with my usual heavy load of crap in the back.

Ordering rc disconnects today also.

My new rough country disconnects and rear shock that are going in today. I'm thankful that this little project doesn't require using jack stand and the tires off as its most likely going to be pouring rain out while I'm doing this.
