Drifted.. Makes me miss the recreational drifting me buddies and I would do after good snows back in the burbs of Chicago. Mall parking lots, 1-3ish AM before the plows could touch em. Norway's next door to this dude, Samuel Hübinette, aka The Crazy Swede. Met him, yes crazy. Awesome drifter though. I rode shotgun 2 laps, then we switched, I drove 2 laps, then he did the 5th lap balls out!! Around a track at a Dodge / Chrysler SRT event. We were in a Crossfire SRT 6. Way off topic, sorry.

Drove it in the cold, wet rainy Sonoran Desert:

Took my Cherokee front DS to D&R Driveline in Grand Rapids to get lengthened. Called the guys at Carolina about the yoke to make it all work. I should have a 4x4 again around Christmas!

Here's the taupe cargo that is mismatched perfectly with the black interior. I don't mind it, matches with the mismatched cargo cover and the pillars are taupe also.

And the smoker mod, thinking about mounting a hidden switch panel there...

I installed my recently restored Laredo black housing headlights and my 6000k HIDs. Installed the HIDs in my foglights too, but didn't have them on in the picture. I like the black housing headlights alot better than my chrome Limited headlights.

Took it for a little dip. Twice:

2:39 - FLOODED TRAIL: - find a flooded trail, ford it noting that there are no fresh tracks on the other side, get slightly nervous while wet sanding the undercarriage, go back (slightest whining for 5 seconds from the Quadradrive that totally went away) and think about doing it again; now that there ARE fresh tracks on the other side. : ) Bird flys by.

2:15 - FLOODED TRAIL - Do it again, "Loser" on radio (perfect for a guy thinking he may just be about to drown his daily driver... He thought driving in), Celebrate dry feet. Find granite, Pause to take stills (wink, nudge), sand jar shifting behind iPad sounds like a loose maraca, not WJ falling apart.

I replaced the oversized tires with ones which matched the original specs. Makes a big difference in driving. The new tires are from a used tire shop in El Paso, TX. The four 245/65R17 tires ride a little different, but the rear end of the Jeep doesn't act squirmy anymore. Now I need to change fluids in the transaxle, both front and rear axles, and finally the transmission. Since the Jeep has almost 169,000 miles and no records, I have to assume none of these have been changed. Of course, my wife is now telling me I can't spend the money right now. She thought I would be taking a year or so to get this Jeep fixed up; I've had it two months, which means some of the work has been delayed while critical issues were fixed. So far I've replaced the front tie rods (Moog), the upper rear control arm and ball joint. I'll post some pictures later, once I figure out how to do so.
