Cleaned the battery terminals, post, and charged the battery. Have been having problems since last week with it starting. Gauges would act crazy when ignition was off. Seems to be ok for now. Gonna replace battery terminals this afternoon if weather doesn't get bad.

Found out that a brand new plastidip nozzle cant save a old can, and if you use that last can for finishing touches you can expect it to ruin your Jeep emblem, chrome grill ring...and then if you use denatured alchohol on those old emblems- it will melt it chrome right off.

I also found out that when you use the 40* on the pressure washer INSTEAD of the debatured alchohol, you will blast paint right off of the plastic. Yay me.

Supposed to freezing this week but no snow til Sat. Maybe it will stay cold enuff that the roads won't thaw in sludge. At least that's what I'm banking on . . . Washing mine too.

2 1/2 inch deck screws, I am amazed at how they tighten down and hold up from all the off roading.

Yeah I went with shackles because I don't trust a tow rope not bouncing off the hook, sometimes it needs to be hit hard, and plus I think using a block with d rigs would be safer, I find myself a hundred miles or more from help
