There is a Jeep app called Trip Cast on the iPhone/iPod. I would imagine androids have one too. It would be perfect for said Epic Adventure.

I don't do fancy phones....in fact I have a sort of hate for cell phones, since I have to wear one all the time.

Whoops... I was thinking of SuperWade for some reason. He uses his droid as a scanguage. I agree with you on the phone thing honestly. Mine can only make texts and phone calls, and that is all I need it to do. I would like an iPhone, but I don't want to pay for the service that thing requires. I enjoy relaxing in the radio station because there is no service and everyone knows I will not answer a call or text when I am there. It is a beautiful thing

Took a trip to the hardware store tonight, picked me up all new bolts for the Skidrow engine skid, maybe I'll put it on tomorrow afternoon.

I managed to remove the factory skid and put on my "new" Skidrow skid today.


I even threw a new sticker on it, to make it look new.


I no longer have to worry about the front drive shaft rubbing on the cross member of the old skid!



I decided to put some grip tape on the rock rails...they get slippery when muddy.



The good new is I didn't hurt myself this time, no cuts, scrapes, bumps or bruises. Some of the bolts on this thing aren't the easiest to get to either, so I'm kind of surprised I'm not bleeding.

It was a cold, windy, overcast day, so what better to do than go out and take some pics of the Jeep?



With a different effect:

No complaints thus far. I won't go so far as to say I like them better than the TrXus MT's I had on my YJ though.

They seem to do fine. Last trip out I did get stuck, but I blame that more on me not wanting to scuff the side of my jeep up, as it was almost rubbing a wall (for the lack of a better term). I've climbed up some slippery stuff with them. The two times I've been out, since getting them, it's been snowy, rainy and muddy.

They are pretty quiet on the road, and ride very nice as well.
