Wouldn't you know only a few blocks from picking her up a guy had decided to go down a construction road along a canal. Soft dirt and truck that wasn't up to the task made for someone needing my help. So I whip around and peel off into the mud to see the situation. They had been messing with it for some time and had it buried past the axles. I've never used my winch but figured this was the perfect time. So I hooked to the front and pulled the dodge pickup to harder ground. as I wound up the winch and cleaned up the guy came over to pay me what looked like $50. I told him he could keep his money but I wanted a picture of the truck I had to winch out. he and his friend couldn't stop saying thank you and I just loved having an excuse to get out there with them.



Then I drove right through the mess he was stuck in and off to get my daughter who couldn't stop talking about how yucky the Jeep was with the mud on it. Great day and I couldn't stop smiling. I'm going to be on the hunt for more potential recoveries. Wish I had taken more photos.
lol 2wd trying to mud

It's still sitting in the shop at work. I want to finish the WJ first then I'll bring the green TJ home. Wish I had a huge shop at home so I could work on them all each night. But with only enough room for one at a time I have to prioritize which to work on. Since the green TJ will take a long time to build and take up my one spot I want to finish something's first. I have the Green jeep layed out in my head its just a matter of time and money to make it happen.

They were funny, the friend kept saying I was sent from god to help them out. Which I really didn't know how to respond to other than laugh. They were both very greatful and I was just all smiles finally using the winch :lol:

Well been working on the Cherokee and 350Z but have found time to drive the TJ.






Have it loaded up and ready to run out to Lazy Springs tomorrow for their big Labor Day Weekend Bash.

Rode out to Lazy Springs in Felda today. Wasn't as entertaining as the Redneck Yacht Club but still a good time. Flexed the Jeep some.


Meet a couple guys from the other coast and part of Jupiter Jeepers. He eased into this hole a bit to slow and lost momentum, had to pull some cable.



Was a good day and the Jeep performed great. Now I need to clean it up and build my license plate bracket

I keep pushing back the green jeep build in hopes of ending up with a 4BT.

Haven't done much with the white Jeep as of late of than drive it with the windows down, A/C decided to quit working. I have made some progress on the 350Z and WJ though.

Getting the Z painted, man what a difference.




Then theres the WJ, as I try and install the Clayton lift I keep finding things to slow the process and this is the least rusted Jeep of the three

I have a hoist system right now for my roof and was wondering if that's going to be possible still. I know the gobi roof rack hinges back.. but is it enough to remove the hard top straight off?

The rack pivots out of the way if your going to lift the hardtop straight up and far enough over head to pivot the rack back into position or if you could secure the rack and back the jeep up a little then pivot it back down. What I did was 1. make sure you get the quick disconnects for the front of the rack. 2. I took the two bolts out where it pivots and just lifted the rack off the Jeep with the help of one other person. Then slid the roof off the back, took maybe 5 minutes longer than just removing the hardtop by hand would. I also have a hoist in my garage but would still need to remove the rack first drive into my garage hook up the roof like normal then pull back into the driveway and put the rack on. All that said its so worth the extra 5-10 minutes it takes to mess with. i've hauled all kinds of crap that other wise I wouldn't be able to with the TJ's small storage area. Plus it just looks cooland one of these days will hold my roof top tent.
