I know. Its so sad seeing them still in bubble wrap in the garage.

In other news, I am planning my attack to fight the mighty battle at the DMV tomorrow.

Who wants to take bets that even though I have all of the proper paperwork... SOMETHING will go wrong between the change of address, registration change and class M endorsement.

Annnddd lastly my order has been shipped and I will get my quick attach mirrors and door sill guards on Monday. YAAAYYYYY

Awww- Just realized my JF membership expired. Happy Jeep Forum version of CakeDay for me! Now.... to pay the $30 again or not.

However- an epoxy should work just as well. Well - as well as you need it to for the application. I think I could put the jeep on the sun or hang an elephant from the mirror now and the windshield would be damaged first.
Interesting...I guess I can try the the store bought stuff, again. Maybe the adhesive gods will smile on me this time and the mirror won't fall off in less than a week.

No reason to bet, it's a know fact!

Ok, I got the pictures I took from wheeling escapades developed. They didn't come out as good as I had hoped - but hey... it was a disposable camera lying around in the back of a jeep.

The meetup!


Here I was directing everyone except Tyler away from the rock cliff I took up since it was way too much for the shiny stock height JKs. Gregg had other plans


Convoy shot. What a beautiful sight that is...


At this very second a tie rod is being destroyed....


Because why not?


Guinea pig run across the swamp


Mike found some vegetation... blehhhhh


Gotta love that bow wake


Its not great- but this is my favorite picture out of the bunch


Where did the grill go?!


JK getting its first mud


ANOTHER JK popping its cherry


Regroup time


Now... Mikes tires are the same height as mine. They just look so much bigger!


Momentarily stuck...


Nice shot of the first trail


I know you boys are all jealous of my grill. I just know it.


... hey look! some Jeeps!

Are there any JN Phillips auto glass locations in CT? My rear view mirror fell off a couple weeks ago. I stopped by one of their shops on the way to work and they glued it back on for free. If you have any problems just bring it back and they will take care of you. If you don't have JN Phillips locations near by maybe another auto glass company will do the same.

Boy - would I ever like to. Do you know his asking price? Unfortunately with my first grad school payment I don't have much mad money the next 2 months.

Or... he could make nice with some sort of person with a knowledge and access to adhesives... lol. But I had my mirror down for a week. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.

Good news is - Alice passed emissions. Bad news is that currently its too hot to be drilling holes in ****.

Well, I should be able to bring you something next time we meet if you can wait that much longer.

No time for the bedliner unfortunately. But I do have everything I need.

Thanks. I'm so glad I checked jeep forum before going to bed. Its OK - I didn't really need to sleep tonight anyway.

Good news is - I got everything drilled out to put the sliders on in the AM. Bad news is... I spent hours fighting with the fender bolts and got a hole saw bit for no reason. They accidentally sent me the standard non WW2WW version.
