I'll post pics of ^ tomorrow. So I think I want to add some lights under my jeep..kinda cool. I didn't wire my lights though, not much experience with wiring so it would be a tricky project for me.

I believe it's due to the fact that the bottom of my fan shroud doesn't really exist, it broke when I got into the accident back in Nov and haven't found a shroud to replace it with (not electric). I figured I would shut my jeep off and give it a while to cool down...bad idea, I should of left it running because it busted a nice 6 inch crack at the top of my radiator. It took me forever to get home (only a few miles from the trails) because it kept overheating and I kept stopping and it was running like s**t. It kept whistling, probably the anti freeze on the belts, and then it kept shutting off on me when I wasn't pushing the gas and it would just die while driving, and there was an awful clunking noise under my front end. Ended up pushing it down a side street that came out right by my house. Didn't drive it the rest of the night and started it up today to find the whistling and clunking gone..found out the clunking was a bad u joint. I was going to buy a new radiator today but decided to try and patch the crack. can't remember the name of the stuff but it's made for patching radiators and so far my jeep ran like a champ today. I hope it holds up, I'd much rather spend the money on things like the src bumper
If the radiator doesn't hold up, I still have the stock one from my jeep i'd sell it for cheap.

Alright thank you I will keep that in mind. I'd much rather buy a used one. I drove it yesterday and it seems to be holding up fine, that stuff is tough. I am however sort of afraid to take it on any long trips so you may be hearing from me soon about the radiator

Did a little mudding yesterday, it finally rained! But of course, something HAD to go wrong..blew my tps sensor again, not a big deal though, had a lifetime warranty. Attempted to change my o2 sensor...fail. I had my ex help me and it was awful. Even with the little special tool it didnt budge. Yanked at it enough that the threads pulled out. I heard something about just tapping a new hole? Project for another day!

It was like that about 3 days ago and before that from what I knew was pretty low for a good week or two before that. It's rained a lot lately though so not sure. It's pretty neat though, deff check it out. They also flattened the trails around the crops so its much nicer to go offroading with right now..even though your jeep is under the knife hah

That's what the "beast" is for my 89 4runner haha. I'm a little worried about wheeling it because I think the frame may break in half.

Ouch! haha that would not be fun. Take the 4 runner down there, the path is smooth by the crops if there is no mud (even if there is its nothing bad), and the path to the river has a few deep ruts but just take it slow! deff worth going down there

it will deff be motivational hah. Nothing new really. I really wanted to buy the src front bumper this week but I went on the river yesterday and dropped my phone in the water..SO that money has to go to a phone now. When I do finally get the bumper though Ill be selling my light bar if anyones interested. I gotta paint my frame soon, and bedline my jeep. Theres a list before school starts. I'll update this as soon as I do something!
