Cut the bumper up today. I like they way it looks I don't use the fog lights ever so it wasn't a big deal. And they're for sale. I marked what I was going to cut with white chalk, and I cut it with a dremel. One shot and it looked almost perfect. I sanded it down and repainted and stuck em' back on.

No I sold them and so I figuerd out what was causing the clunking, it was a bad right lower control arm. I just replaced both lower control arms, I am still waiting on my motor and tranmission mounts to get here. I also bought a cold air intake. Can't wait for the rest of the parts to get here!

So the WJ has been sitting for about 2 weeks now, I Had to replace the lower control arms and the motor/trans mounts. But the mounts have still yet to get here. I got a cold air intake today so I put that on. I also go 1.5" wheel spacers and put them on. Put my new GOT MUD sticker on as well. Hopefully the mounts will be here soon because I'm dying to drive the Jeep again!

Re-torqued my wheel spacers, and installed the motor/transmission mounts. I did the motor mounts yesterday (passenger side 30 min) (drivers side 2hr) Could not for the life of me get the driver side mount to line up. The transmission mount was so easy, took 20 minutes. Took away some of the shaking. Going to be needing all 4 tre's, so i'm going to replace those and get my wheels balanced and get an aligment.

looking good, advice for the control arms, rachet straps work wonders. park in front of a tree. use your rear axle for going back and tree to go forward.

I have a Glasspack on it right now with a turndown right after, I need to weld a mount so it stopped moving around so much.

So today I didn't have much to do, I am waiting on my MOOG tre's to get here. I saw a picture on instagram where the guy painted shark teeth on his bumper and it looked bad ***. So I decided to do that as well

Bought a used roof rack of CL, and bought some lights and put them on the rack! I need a new transmission one of these days lol. It's not in to bad of shape but sooner or later its going to go. In the few weeks I'm going to be buying a F150 from my neighbor for 1200 as a beater truck.
