Slowly...I really only have a few hours a week to work on it. Got the main section welded up and started grinding it smooth. Waiting on more metal to do the sides with.

it seemed like the guy behind the counter just made up a price when i asked him. I used a 15mm socket... you probably already know this but, you are just taking the bracket off the frame, not the hooks off the bracket. As for the bumper, it was already gone when i got there... but i probably would have just ripped it off.

This was the first junkyard i've gone to in Omaha and in the lot i checked out, i found only 1 out of 8 WJs that had hooks. I also found two decent looking (at first glance) OEM hitches with bezel, wiring harness, and one even had the Jeep hitch plug.. but i didn't pull those.

Unsure what a healthy 4.7 sounds like at idle, (machinery with moving parts DOES make sounds) have a little bit of a tap, not consistent, most noticeable on cold start up, once idle comes down a couple hundred rpm after a minute or so, at oil pan, not up at valvetrain. Any thoughts? Doesn't everyone lay under their truck and intently listen to it's sounds like you study the curves of your woman? Or, is this a bit eccentric?

Sold the ugly 20" wheels that were on my wifes limited when i bought it for her, Paid 200 for a set of stock 03 wheels with close to new tires and a brand new full size spare.

Changed the oil in my laredo with 10w-30 mobile 1 full synthetic and a mobile 1 filter. Checked the tire pressures and used white lithium grease on all the door seems, latches, hinges, tailgate seems, and hood seems.

started working on my new grill. picked up some shadow paint that turns crome into a pro looking black crome job. or so the can said. so i decided to give it a shot, while doing up my new grill.

(pics to come)

took the fromt grill off and tape off all the chrome trim. sprayed on the transulsent black. and then the clear coat. then drank some beer while my buddies wife made home made pumpkin pie for me (was a bet she lost, haha red wings sucked last night!!)

today i i picked up some wire meshing and will be hot glueing it behind the newly pained black chrome trim. looks sweet!!!
