i trailered the yj out to plainfield to last chance auto to get the heads checked and the exhaust system made on Saturday, i should be getting it back tomorrow or the next day. ill be sure to upload some videos/sound clips. i have a few more things i have to do before i drive it,
secure the shocks
bleed the brakes
check the master cylinder
clean up some wiring.

then i should be good to go, i cant hammer on the gas too much yet though with the stock/dying skid plate, im working on a plan to make a new crossmember for the time being untill i can get a full skid put together

so i received some good news today, i was having cooling problems for awhile there and we accidently let the engine get to 300+ degrees F. So we were worried about the possibility of warped heads or other damage, but got a call today telling me that everything was fine. so that pretty much made my day lol
