Love what your doing here, keep up the great work.
Wow, thanks man! Unfortunately, this won't be updated anywhere near 'daily'. I won't be able to even see my Jeep until August this year.

I just got news from home that my poor baby is dead Something drained the battery after sitting for about 2 months. My dad tried to jump it, but couldn't get the hood open.

Shouldn't need a new battery, I just put a Sears Optima in it last year. Something was drawing power, but I don't know what it could be, because I disconnected my sound system and security alarm.

With my TNT fenders, my hood sits a fraction of an inch lower on the grill. This makes the factory hood latch get 'stuck', and I have to reach through my grill and pop it up, then through the hood and pull the latch regularly. My dad didn't know about this so he had no idea how to open the hood.

It's all good though. I'm confident that it'll start right up with a jump. The only thing I'm worried about is having flat spots on my tires from sitting for six or seven months.

I'm planning to install an aux fuse block when I get home to really clean up all the wiring for my amp, lights, winch, and CB.

Small update today. I got her running easily enough. Since then I've installed my front Currie antirock, rear Currie JJ LCA's, new front brakes, oil change, diff fluid change, and rotated the tires I've also attempted three or four times at getting my front axle u-joints done, but those three unit bearing bolts are a *****!

Pics coming tomorrow!

Antirock and front and rear LCA's are done. Yes, I know the jam nut isn't jammed

When removing the factory sway bar, I couldn't get a wrench around the bolt that's almost under the grill which is holding the sway bar 'clamp' down. You can see in the AR pic how it's still attached. To get the sway bar out, I had to bend the clamp a bit, then hack saw the rubber bushing enough to where I could yank the whole thing out of the clamp. Now the bumper and winch are back on and nobody can see that ugly business
