Still waiting on the front hitch receiver. Might grab some wiring and get the winch/Accessory 12v wiring all done to the front and rear of the vehicle. What has everyone else used for quick connectors on such a big gauge wire?
Need pics....

I need to get them adjusted properly first. That wont be until the end of the weekend. Gotta take the bumper off to install the hitch receiver that arrived today! I'll try to do that tomorrow, but Im working nights tonight so it might have to wait.

I'll take pics of the progress on the hitch receiver install.

Made a 4" plywood puck to hold down my spare tire, since the PO lost the original part, I had the threaded rod and nut/handle. I less noise!!

Wj general grabber at2

Ordered some 245/70/16 General Grabber AT2's from tires-easy.com and they arrived in 4 days. Great tire, little road noise and great road manners.

Hey ^^^^^ looks great!! Man, that is one clean looking WJ. I mean in condition, not to imply anything negative related to not being muddy or... well you know.
Mine is too clean, but not in as good condition....

I sat in the passenger seat while underway. It is a very odd experience. The wife, of course, was at the wheel. It doesn't scare me as much anymore.

Also, I have one of the Silverblade series alum. rims that came with some "mods". Can I smooth them and hit them with clearcoat? I know I CAN do that (pre-emptive ), but will it blend to make the blemishes less visible? They are not that bad, but it bothers the aforementioned Warden, so by default it "bothers" me.

I built a rack for my CO2 bottle to secure it in the back of my Jeep when I wheel. Three wing nuts and 2 thumb screws and it comes right out.

Changed my oil with 6 quarts of Mobil 1 synthetic. 10w-30 and a napa filter. The whole process took about 40 minutes. 20 of which was looking for all my tools.
