Oil change, touch up paint on lots of little chips.
Let the V8 breathe a bit on a 260ish mi round trip to the nw area of NJ and back.

Runs and drives like new at 95k mi.

Drove it across the scales at Pilot Truck Stop today:

Front axle = 2,280 lbs

Rear axle = 2,920 lbs

Trailer = 5,260 lbs

Information was worth every penny of the $9.50 it cost me.

I'm not digging the black wheels on that color WJ. Try a dark graphite.

first took off my rails and sanded/painted them bedliner black. Unfortunately, i found a LOT of rust in them and its even starting to eat through the side so eventually i'll cut off the rail mounts and weld on some custom tubes. After that i was feeling ambitious so I pulled the rear hitch and sanded off the rust to clean it up. Got her primed and ready for final coat which i'll do tomorrow. I really want to start the rear tire carrier project but I don't have immediate access to a welder
