Haven't done much in the past few days on the jeep. Have been working on the race cars lately, we came in 2nd on week #1 and took 1st this past week! We took on another car to team last week as well, came in 4th in the heat race but the fan let go as we were lining up for the feature, decided to not risk it and fix it for this week's race.

Yeah man, Sunday's are the races, Rumney, NH. 1st heats are around 4ish and main feature I like 630-700 depending on the the track and heat races.

My jeep is basically ready, hopefully my buddies shocks come in today and we will put them in a start wheeling for the season! Like I said man, you can certainly bring your jeep over and we can put in the body lift then hit some trails!

What's your schedule like? I do 2 days, 2 nights, 4 off... So I have random week days and weekends off.

I still need to get a winch, Money is a little tight right now so that will probably summer/late summer before I can pick one up.

body lift went in about 3 weeks ago, the only bolt to break was the one that was already broken

Replaced the idler pulley today, noticed it was seized up and wd40 didnt help. Took 5 min with 15mm socket, good thing my buddy was working at the part store, just in time before they closed and he brought it right up to me after!

Haha no I haven't but I'm really leaning towards warn, I've been reading some reviews on the new ones that just came out so probably one of those.

I'm saving up some money for rocker guards and winch for this summer. Seems like that's on my list every year but ill make it happen this year lol.

First off road trip for 2013 was this morning!! Just a quick local trail but it had some big root climbs and a little mud and rocks as well.

Took the girlfriend and my puppy ember she loved it! We put a couple blankets in the back for her and had her leashed to center roll bar.

Went to the speedway last night for Week #3 at Rumney Legion Speedway, our 18X car got 2 laps on the first heat race and the rain started pouring. The cars came off the track and we waited about 1 1/2 hours then they finally called the race. Oh well, next week!
