WTF is a BOHICA?



Oh, and you should have named your thread "Last of the Bohicans".

I put some undercoating on the frame today cause it was looking a lil rusty, some high heat rust proof paint on the exhaust, and painted the spare tire carrier and the read bumper with semi-gloss

a couple days ago i think i bumped my jeep out of 1st into neutral in my driveway and got out.. came back out and it rolled itself back into a tree. I got a little bit punched out and painted it over so it wouldn't rust. so my best idea is to get some diamond plated corner guards to cover it up.

so the jeep has been out of commision for awhile. Turns out i snaped me axle shaft and broke off a few teeth of the spider gears cause i dropped the clutch I dropped it and heard a snap then noticed it wouldnt go in 2 wheel so i put it in 4 and pulled of and checked it out. I thought I could limp it in 4th to my 1st day of work, but nope axle shaft came out with the tire and flew off the road and i was suddenly a 3 wheeler. So i got a new axle shaft and for the spider gears I just bought a new gear set, but turns out I have a limited slip and never knew it so those gears didnt work so i sent those back, then I decided to jsut go with the locker cause I thought your didn't need the limited slip with it, but nope needed a differnet locker for the limited slip to, so im just gunna order the 2 little gears that are broke cause the 2 biggero ones aren and im prety sure the little ones don't matter with the limited slip so lets hope this one works.

so some of the past stuff I have been doing...
I picked up 4 LED strips that I got for 14 bucks and put them under my dash and on the wheel wells in the back.. they look soo sexy at night.


also I took my huge 6 in fender flares off because I ordered some smittybults rear tubes ones to match the front. so I had to take out the quick discos and do some flexin!!


and lastly the tube fenders for the back came it. I picked um up for only 150 bucks. They were the cheepest I could find and the quality shows it. I would not reccomend them unless u have no money at all like me haha. they look like they were made my a amateur and they dont even reach all the way to the bottom of the tub. so I had to paint the part that shows at the bottom black to make it look a little better. but overall they look ok if you dont look to close.

for the rear tubes?? I didn't have to do any they just fit into all the original holes except for the bottom ones because they didn't reach to them.
