I have lived in MI my whole life and been all over the mitten snowmobiling, but have never been to the UP, let alone Paradise and houghton for sledding. Im excitedto finally have time and money to do it. How do you guys who have been to drummond like it? Do you thing that my WJ is equipped enough to do some of the easier to moderate trails being that i dont know how they are set up? Ill have the wife with me and unfortunatly shes never been wheeling and she thinks ill break my jeep pulling into my front yard LMAO. So i kinda wanna break her in easy haha.

For the headlights, I've found a bit of rubbing compound on a paper towel works wonders!

ha ha ha i think it is dirty! i use a killer wax, carnu-b it is so simple to use and i love it! one of those auto show small booths deal and now our shop stocks a case of it at all times! it is no joke! every bike we work on gets waxed in it before it leaves the shop... i also clay bar it ever 3-4 months ya i got issues, but in Chicago the salt in the winter will eat paint if you do not take care of it... i used to use Zymol but that was so $$$, this other stuff you can wipe off while it is still wet and it works great!

here are a few shots of the car, truck, and bike after waxed

Finished drilling out two studs on nearside front.

Bought 4 new ( to me ) replacement alloys and tyres (245/75/16) for 125 on ebay lol , thats about $210 i think. Not bad condition either , even if they are just Silverblades and tyres are new with the little rubber nobbles on sidewalls still .

About 10 000 km. I know what I write. My Jeep is converted to LPG and uses petrol only in two cases - when starting cold, and over 4500RPM. That is how I get 10000km on one tank. And around 13-14 mpg on LPG.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but my math says that means you need 429 gallons of lpg to get that mileage. Is it compressed? Again forgive me, I know nothing of LPG and its advantages

On topic, today I though about how much I wanted to drive my WJ. I started assembling the sockets and trim panel for my WJ integrated power inverter and thought about my highest priorities for it.

A friend offered me a set of General Altimax Arctics, stock size, 98% tread left for $250. They were from his 06 WK and now are taking up room. I also have another friend with an 05 wk limited that came with the factory chrome rims. He has upgraded to BFGs and had to get custom rims for backspacing issues. I've done alot for him so he offered me all of them for repayment. they look like this:

Only thing is they had to take the TPMS valve stems over to his new rims so I'd have to get new valve stems glued in. You guys think I should jump on this deal or stick to what I have? Also does anybody know if that rim+tire combo would play nice with the WJ? I think it would be cool to have two sets of tires...
