I have only taken the upper doors off 2 times since ive owned them. Its a pain to screw them in and out when i could just take the doors off completely. I do like them when they are on cause they seal well and its also a good height for an armrest vs. the half door is a little too low for me.

So I was driving yesterday and noticed it was pulling to the right. Sure enough i check and notice that the brake is stuck. I limp it home and pull off the tire and the caliper and the brake pad just falls right off...

Got the brakes all installed and they work well. The pedal is a little spongey but it stops ok. I'm gonna give it a few days and maybe bleed the brakes again to see if that helps.

Went wheeling with a few buddies today and had a blast. Some good mud sections and some ledge climbs! Nothing major broke so it was a good day!

Bought a small electric pressure washer this weekend from Lowe's. 1700psi for $100, couldn't pass it up. Just another small addition to the Jeep.

Couple things over the past few weeks, nothing major. Got a 2nd fire extinguisher and also put a bruins flag on my CB Antenna to show some love for the STANLEY CUP CHAMPS!!! also put the bikini top on for those times stuck in the rain... A little too late since i was stuck in some rain but the girls in the back didn't mind lol. neither did I!

Also had the brake lights go out on me the other day. Tracked it down to a 20A fuse in the glove box that blew. Popped a new fuse in and she's good!
