Just need the weather to warm up alittle bit more so I can paint.
Be sure to get everything installed by May 18th!

I know... and i am really, really upset about it. But I cant turn down a free trailer to a giant garage complete with all the metal fab **** you would need to get this done. Seeing Alice in the garage every day is getting to be REALLY sad.

I will make it up though. Promise!

That's the plan. I don't think I could show up in public with my Jeep in its current sorry state.

It was fun while it lasted. Luckily, Andy and I are too strong to let a woman come between us.

I figured you would put woman in quotes instead of italics considering last nights conversation. lol

Jeep Thoughts of the Day:
The more I look at my Jeeps rusty and beat up transfer case and gas tank skids, the more I wonder if they are even worth trying to clean up and reuse. It would also be helpful to have the TC tucked up before I measure for the new rear DS. Decisions, decisions...

Shiny... That's the brilliance of my evil plan. Unlike bumpers and sliders(Kate), the skids are of immediate benefit considering I'm on 31s and low lift. Oh, and they will be fun. To pound on. Regardless, there might be a GTS in my future since my current one might be beyond recovery.

In Other News...
Just finished the plans for a quick recon up to NH tomorrow. Figured I'd go check out White Mountain National Forest for possible camping trips later this spring/summer. I'm not taking the Jeep, but I'll make sure to get some pictures anyway.

Progress
Alright, Control arms and brakes are on order and everything else minus shocks and SYE/DS will get ordered Monday. I'll probably start tearing the jeep apart on Monday to begin rust removal and painting. It's going to be a long week.
