I did nothing to my jeep today, but it decided to do something to me. Started it up this morning, and I have a lifter that is loosing its prime and not pumping up. Ive been having this issue for a while now, but its never been this bad. It would usually pump up withing a mile of driving. NOT TODAY! It sounds like a dang machine gun going down the road. Looks like its time for a performance cam upgrade!

New driver's wheel hub, new front pads, rotors, pass side caliper bracket, also threw on a set of new jk steelie take offs since my tires were bald and i couldn't afford new tires. Lots more on the to do list to get her ready for winter.

I installed a make shift fishing rod rack on my WJ, it's not that ugly but it's not that pretty either, but she does the trick! took it on a 75mph test with all stations loaded, two fly rods and reels, and two spinning rods and reels. Varying in size from 6' to 9', did pretty well and it will help out for steelhead fishing when it gets colder because I can get everything set up at home and not have to break down my rods before I head out to the river and set up in the cold there, just grab and go! And it will help in the summer for camping because I won't have to worry about getting hooked in the eye while I'm driving down the road I'll probably re-do it in a more professional look, but for now it will work just fine!

The cold is killing my battery or starter. Not cranking up like she used to. I'm hoping just battery. I've had it 2 years and don't know how
Long it was in there before.

Changed headlights back to stock. Gotta pass an inspection. I really like the 04 laredo headlights.

I put in a cb so i could use it on the trail but since then I have turned off my fm radio and ipod. would rather bs with the other people out there on the cb.
AND the sun is in a maximum and the propagation (skip) is awesome, i have reached Florida, California and Washington, from here in Chicago, when the conditions are right, and I'm running barefoot.
