Hope everyone had an awesome christmas full of jeep things!!!!

I did a bit of romping around this weekend much fun. Even had to pull a chevy pickup up a hill.

And merry christmas to me- an Engo 10,000 lb winch is in the mail!

Well then! just wait for spring when its tanktop and jeep work weather. had 3" of snow here in the last hour. Little chilly now for eye candy pics.

I ended up going with the Rokmen mercenary with the grill guard, light mounts and welded fairlead. Cant wait to get it in.

Its snowing heavily. Im the only one in the house who has 4wd. I am so excited to offer to drive my roomates to work (same place I work). Here comes a morning of fun watching them attempt to get into it, be uncomfortable with the amount of noise and cold of the soft top on the highway, worry about that slightly unnerving body roll and generally wonder why they have sports cars and not jeeps.

So, ta-da! Eye candy present from the best seat in the house!

Good morning everyone! So- we got about 6" of heavy, wet and wicked slick snow overnight. Roomates couldn't even move their cars an inch- hit 4h and rolled out like it was nothing. I even intentionally tried to slide out taking a turn to see exactly how well it worked on this snow. Didn't budge. Yay!!!!

In other news- so the Engo 10,000lb winch was my christmas present to me. I have now just ordered the Rokmen mercenary front bumper with tube, custom fairlead mount and light tabs for my birthday present to me. Cant wait to get them in and awe at Alice getting even more badass.

Ill have to check out how it looks as bare steel. I have half a mind to spray-paint the majority of it black and leave the grill guard bare steel. Or finish it so it has a stainless finish.

I do plan to put bedliner on my fender flares as soon as its warm enough to take them off... but Im thinking a semi-gloss black on the bumper will do nicely.

As soon as I can POSSIBLY afford them. Probably this spring- at which point I will likely kick both of my male roommates out of the garage and claim it as mine since they don't like to play with tools anyway. Pshh... what do chemists know. Chemical Engineering is where its at.

In all seriousness, a few minor things and maybe a hardtop- then I am going to work on getting every single tool I could ever need and then playing around with them.

I think my roomates dog is a little jealous of the nice surprise I got when I got out of work.
