That's a sick shot. I think the bare aluminum against the black is a nice contrast.

I agree I think it will stay bare aluminum for a while, and thanks that is probably my new favorite picture

Finally blew the AX15. Reverse went out as I attempted to go backwards up one of the dunes. Found a steal on an nv3550 so im going to give that a go and see how it holds up behind the 5.3.

Why not a 4L60E?

Im not a fan of autos. I would much rather have a manual. If I was to do a 4l60E I would have to replace the transfercase, new driveshafts and I cut all the wires for the auto out of the harness a few weeks ago.

Got the nv3550 in and man does this thing shift nicer then the ax15, night and day difference. Also got my rear corner guards color matched but I used in aerosol can so it turned out pretty crappy.

Sold my hitch today so I will hopefully be pulling the trigger on a JCR rear bumper soon. Also got some 2" LED lights installed on my grill today

Been one thing after another with the truck. EGR valve went bad and picked up a junkyard one. Driveshaft went, then the rear end went. Got the rear end rebuilt and found the frame had a decent crack in it, welded that up and backed it up with some 3/16" plate took it for a test drive and the front brake caliper seized. Got that fixed and so far so good which means its time to put the Jeep in storage for the winter.

Managed to trade my half doors for full doors today. Need to do something about the interior panels and need to fix a dent in the passenger side then they will be ready to go.
