Yeah, I'm going to do the windshield as well in time. I got them through amazon I think

I need to invest in an impact ready torx set. The bit was completely bent by the time I broke the paint seal. I'm glad it didn't break in one of the bolts

A few updates I've been lax wiith:

This is what we build at my job. Ruggedized LCD monitors that can hold up an LJR



Out with the old.



In with the new.



I'm a numbers guy... Always look forward to this... reluctantly...



And lastly, thanks a lot to Goodyear for making such crummy tires. These have less than 20k miles on them. Driver and passenger side fronts off the SRT8.

Got the lift installed! I went with the 3" Zone Suspension lift, and some goodies to go along with it...

Currie Ultimate Steering setup, which is the same Tie Rod and Drag Link as the Currectlync steering, but they've been heat treated, making them stronger.
Metalcloak Chromoly Adjustable Trackbar
Rancho Steering Stabilizer

I had been having some issues with shimmying, so after 150k miles, I decided to replace the front control arms. I figured I had a bad bushing. I got 3 of the arms to play nicely, but the front lower passenger side bolt seized in the crush sleeve. I had to cut the control arm and replace the hardware. I plan on upgrading to some adjustable control arms, but I figure it'll be nice to have a spare fresh set of arms for a trail repair, and it was a helluva lot easier than replacing just the bushings.







Considering selling my swingout carrier/rear bumper and replacing it with an exogate and an aluminum bumper. Thoughts?

exogate would look good and keep the spare closer the the rig.

Any luck getting rid of the shimmy?

Switched the front and rear tires, which made it much more manageable but not perfect. I have to toe the alignment in so I don't have to steer to get her straight again. I haven't done a long drive in her yet, but hope to get her on the highway today

I know... a few reasons. Student loan debt along with a lack of permanent housing make it somewhat of a burden at times. This is my third wrangler and I'm only 24, so I know there will be another one down the road.

Come live with me. I have a spare bedroom and over $50,000 of student debt left. We can cry in our jeeps about our debt together!

Well that's what the little POS car that keeps dying on you is for. You can make it work. For Misty's sake.

Well that's the thing. My mother bought a new car and offered me her 2004 Camry for cheap transportation. Already having three cars is a hassle so I have to make a choice between which to keep... if any at this point. Money will most likely talk if/when I put feelers out for both jeeps
