It's been a while since I've updated the thread, so I'll just show a bunch of pictures from Go Topless Day.















And a video (gotta click it):

So after Go Topless Day, a friend of mine threw a party at his new house. I just figured I'd share some of the aftermath...



For my birthday, my Dad got me a gift card to amazon.com, so I figured I'd use the money to get a new Hi-Lift jack!



And I finally got around to ordering my Tom Wood's Custom Driveshaft...



The install was going smoothly, except I had to realign the rear end for the bolts to fit. I used the Hi-Lift to raise the back tire to spin it and everything lined up. I was so happy to get the new driveshaft in, until the time came to lower the Jeep back down... The Hi-Lift wouldn't recede. I had to use the factory jack to lift Misty past the Hi-Lift to pull it out. The jack is supposed to go back down click by click but it wasn't working. I'm not sure if it was user error or not, but I guess I'll have to find out at some point.

Until then, I highly recommend Tom Wood's. Not only was he easy to deal with and personable, but this bumper sticker alone is enough to have my recommendation.



Went for a quick drive and.... NO VIBRATIONS!

So- that hill climb was freakin insane. He must have been going 90 up the whole thing. That right there is a whole lot of NOPE for me. I am sad I missed that party - looks pretty awesome. But I made the semi-unwise choice to go spend $50 to get drunk at 6flags. After the season pass and parking costs. Because I am an adult and I just realized that I can do s*** like that.

Driveshaft looks awesome though!
