Well the AC compressor froze up the other day and melted the belt and broke it. Had a spare I threw on and took it to a forum members shop her in concord and he fixed it cheap. Getting ready to clean up and sell this jeep though. Gonna use the money to fix my 04
Accomplished some wheeling at Hollister this weekend. You guys would really be amazed at what this jeep is capable of. I climbed some of the gnarliest stuff at Hollister all on a D35 with an auto locker and open front diffs with no power steering. Didn't get too many pics, but I had this jeep almost rolling several times while flexing like the world's strongest man in remote corridors barely wide enough for a vehicle. I hopped this little 4 banger TJ up some of the loosest rock cliffs in the park all without spilling my beer. I was swangin around corners like I was Ken Block. Even had a head on collision with another TJ.
Did i break anything you ask?? NO! well, kind of.... Picked up some body damage on the windshield frame, a nice little dent in the hood, lost the hood latch, Bent my winch from the head on collision, and bent my exhaust. But hey I drove it home and nothing "broke"
So with all that winch damage I decided to hard mount the remote plug into the grill. A lot of people are afraid to drill a fat hole in their grill, but I went right for it! Mounting all the electronics behind the grill.
Got the Winch all finished up today. Pretty sweet with the remote plug right there on the grill. Cut bend in the exhaust off. Not sure if Its cool to run how it is? started working on replacing the rear shocks, but its just so much trouble I don't think its even worth it! I'll probably just bolt up the one upper bolt I got out and forget about it!
Went wheelin at Frank Raines this weekend. So much fun. Did some crazy sh*t! No flops or breaks this time, picked up a little damage... Bent up the rear bumper, and broke one of the door surrounds coming down on a rock and a little dent on the hood. My passenger rock rail got hit hard and bent the body a little bit making it harder to close the door. It kept popping open on the drive home. Didn't get too many pics, but my buddies got some awesome footage that I will need to obtain.
