painted my radiator support brace since i cut my bumper last night. IMO, it looks 100x better. Its still wet, so when the paint dries I'll get pics up.

Got the gas tank lift done. Gained just over 6" well worth the time.

Just replaced my valve cover gasket. So the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good, no more leaks! Now I can have a clean engine again as soon as I steam it off. The bad, I have the 0331 head but no visible cracks which is great. The ugly, I lost a 7/16 deep well socket on the back of the engine which then rolled down to the top of the transmission somewhere. I cant get to it unless I drop it since space is so tight and thats not going to happen, so may it rest in peace.

Also, something im very happy about. I figured after all the miles and two previous owners the engine would be somewhat dirty or have some sludge on the rockers at least. To my surprise the engine was SPOTLESS! I could see all the casting info clear as day, no sludge on the rockers, and read the marking on the bolt heads. I even checked the numbers on the block and head to make sure and they match so im sure its original. Im also convinced that because I have the tow package and heavy duty cooling thats the main reason why my 0331 is doing so well along with frequent oil and coolant changes. No proof to back that up though lol.

I figured I would hit the trails tonight to see the snow. I went about 5 miles up (to about 6500 feet) while the snow was coming down pretty hard. It was fun to wheel in the snow again, even if it was only 5 inches or so.

Pulled the two nails out of my 32's and plugged em up myself cus Firestone refused to do it... Felt like a boss and it costed me $8. Pulling the tool out of the tire once the plug is set is one of the most satisfying noises out there.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

If treadwrights on the ball with the one then ill order the rest from them. I'm a little nervous about the retreads to be honest. Never run them before
