Well I had 82 miles on my new 35" MTRs before a neighborhood kid decided they needed holes in them. Now Im back on my 33's until I can get money to replace the 35's. My order from Savvy should be here tomorrow.
Dropped my t-case and steering gear for a rebuild. Picked up a lap belt for the rear seat. Used the Jeep to tow a post hole digger for my parents.

Well. Went out to strip the undercoat of the frame today to get rid of some surface rust. Found that the middle body mount was almost rotted away. Coated it with chassiss saver after I got rid of all the loose rust. Not happy it has cancer. Ordered a oil pan skid and the trilready front bumper to match my back one. Hopefully my front tube fenders will get painted tomorrow.

Can't wait to see the Savvy gear on. UPS always seems to ship either slow as hell, or in parts
