Then soon as I could I bolted back on the fenders! This took a lot less time... I did it in about 3 hours total..

I also Decided to paint the little aluminum plate on the front fenders Paint matched Red.. let me know what you think!


I think the Jeep looks MUCH BETTER!!!

I added the 1" CrawlerReady Pucks next
Its not a huge difference, but I noticed it when wheeling.. I like the set up now...




Before



After





So the Sun finally started shining so I took the top off for the first time.. It was my first experience with a topless jeep of my own (besides my friends rentals at Cliffhanger in Moab) and man was is it awesome! I only have put it back on once since then... cause it was gunna storm big...




Tomorrow I'll update with some bumper changes and eventual fabin' of a new one and a wheeling trip.

You know I'm not really sure yet.. I'm thinking buying complete d60's from a company like Teraflex or those g2's or something. I haven't quite decided because I need to save lots..

Suggestions?!

Me too. But not as much as I love this Lj lol..

I talked to the owner of Jimmer yesterday. He has replaced the hydraulic fan, installed bilstiens, rubberized undercoated the suspension, put on a new 3" exhaust with highflow cat and cleaned up the headlights. He says the drivers side rear shaft is bent.. I dunno how since I didn't wheel it much the last year cause of the academy and I put new shafts in last June :shrugs:
But he's keeping it clean and wheeling it so I don't feel to bad anymore.. I keep telling him to post on here.. I'll get pics

well I guess its time for some updates lol..

Where to start... hmm.. how bout an Accident! lol

So I'm driving down the road a while ago (right after powder coating) minding my own business just driving straight.. When the car to my right decided he wanted to be in my lane... IN MY EXACT SPOT! So out of the blue I feel a bump and I was like WTCrap was that?! A speed bump? That is when I noticed a side view mirror fly past my window.. I was pissed... I pulled into the nearest parking lot and teh Nissan Altima pulled in after me. I jumped out and asked the kid if he was okay. He said yes and then I started looking at my jeep... To my surprise I had NO damage Awesome! Then I looked at his and I had to hide my laughter...
Lets just say Jeep 1 and Altima 0 lol
So I called the cops cause there was obviously more than a thousand worth of damage..

My Jeep

The Altima

Check out them TIGER STRIPES!!!!



Its hard to see in the photo's but he had A LOT of sheet metal damage.. there where dents/ smashes on both doors and front and rear fenders..

The officer showed up and I told him this will be a great story when I go take My Police Academy Final later that day.. He just laughed.. He told the kid he must be a complete idiot not to see this big red Jeep next to him and wrote him an improper lane change ticket..

Next lets talk bumpers...

i wasn't to keen on the bumper that came on the rig so I decided to switch it up.. i purchased a used bumper from a member of my Utah Jeep Crew.
