Play? Uh, no. Rockford IceHogs are a professional team, in the AHL and an affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks.

I'd rather have 3" of snow than the crappy rain we've been getting. Ice everywhere and we've lost power a handful of times already. The trees cracking and falling is nerve racking as well for this Vet.

I went out today, camera in hand, to get some winter shots....but I never ventured too far from the Jeep. It was like 20 below with the windchill.



But one needs to suffer for their art.

I got a battery powered impact gun, with two batteries, for Christmas, that should make tire rotations (and other things) a lot easier. It came with a case, which will make for easy transport on the trail. (the TenFactory axle shafts counted as my Christmas gift too)

Not sure where I would have had that, so no link, but I think I'm right at 10 grand into it, so with the 17 grand I spent on the Jeep I've got about 27-grand invested, not counting the tires I've gone through already, which would add another $1500.00 to the total.

Updated list:

Old Man Emu 2" HD lift, with OME steering stabilizer

Currie Anti-Rock front sway bar

LT305/70R16 Good Year DuraTracs on stock Moabs

Rokmen Mercenary front bumper

Superwinch EPi 9.0 w/synthetic line

Rokmen Mercenary Sliders w/internal bracing

Skidrow engine skid

Skidrow radiator skid and Skidrow steering box skid

Cobra 75 WX ST 40 Channel CB

Rokmen 1" billet spacers up front, to level it out

Rokmen adjustable control arms (uppers and lowers)

This list does not include parts that have been broken or wore out, like wheel bearings, axle seals, stock axle joints, windshield....and the likes. I try not to think of those things. lol.
