Not much of an update, but did plugs, fuel filter and oil change today. Also replaced both breathers, they were both broken, who knows for how long.

I always like seeing the Moab Rim pics. That's a trail I'd like to hit sometime.

It's a fun trail, its only got 2 hard spots and its short, but once you get up top I guess there is heaps of trails and a big sand dune, next time we do that trail we'll probably explore abit

Took out the BB's today. Not sure how I like it, she looks really small now

I haven't updated because I haven't done any upgrades lately, I have a 78' Malibu I've been doing a lot of work on and thats kept me pretty busy.
Before: (Day I bought it)

After: (Not Finished)

Also replaced my HID bulbs today and while I was at it I upgraded my roof lights to 100w... I don't think it made a difference

How does it ride without the BB? Maybe some 3/4" Spacers to give it a little more height but not too much. I think it looks more tame without the BB. Civilized haha.

it has better Hwy manners, I really need new sway bar end link bushings so she started wondering on the road again pretty bad, and since I picked up a 4-wheeler for my g/f I need the Jeep to handle towing a trailer and two bikes without being all over the place.
I think I'll do the bushings and also upgrade to addco sway bars and see how I like being at 6.5" on the trails.
Its tough I really liked the height and she looked alot meaner, maybe later when I swap axles I'll have it setup a bit better for that height and go up to 35's
