Well it's been a long time since I've done any work on my Jeep. Getting married put a big damper on my funds (not the wife won't let me, just that I wanted to help pay for wedding expenses, honeymoon, new house, blah blah blah). Anyways, I'm getting to the point where I can start working on the Jeep again, and now have a garage to work in!
So here is a list of a few things I've done since I last updated. Most of these were done within the past few days.
-Removed milk jugs from the front
-Removed spare tire from the tailgate
-Painted chrome grill inserts a gun metal gray
-Installed some windshield mounted hella 500s
Now of course there is a list a mile long of things I'd LIKE to do to the jeep this year, I'll only provide a short list of things that I am going to MAKE myself do over the next few months. I know Uwharrie opens in less than a month, and I wont be ready for that, but I'd like to get a few things done before heading out there for the first time this spring. Sooooo, here's what I had in mind:
-Kilby or Skid Row steering box skid (A nice cheap piece of armor that offers some piece of mind!)
-Riddler differential covers for my D44 and D30
-ZJ Tie rod
-Remove t-case spaces and replace with a few washers if needed
-Add a few washers to the steering stops to eliminate rubbing
Now depending on how much extra work I can acquire this spring teaching scuba I may or may not try to do the following upgrades. If I can't get to the by the middle of Spring and my first Uwharrie trip, oh well, but I'd still like to get them done by the end of summer if at all possible fall at the latest:
-4.5 TNT front and read tube fenders
-Front and rear bumper w/swing out tire carrier (yet to be determined)
-1.25" JKS Body lift
-1" JKS MML
-Belly up skid plate/tummy tuck (yet to be determined)
Anyways, I can't wait to get some work done and I hope you guys like what you see!
