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.

Didn't think I needed a pic, we all know what they look like, but whitdahell

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.

Its relatively cheap... mine only goes maybe 30 miles in any direction... its all you need on the trail.
I was racing the sun off a trail last year because I thought I was the last one out. Bad choice led to being high centered on my transmission pan. If I would have known there was a group behind me I wouldn't have tried to rush. Also running a trail last year with my brother in his two inch lifted wj... he took a left over a a cattle gaurd, I went around it. There was a two foot drop on the far side of the cattle gaurd that twisted his xmember pretty bad. Nothing he couldn't drive away with but it did stress his trasfer case more than would be optimal...

Being able to talk via CB radio would have helped in both cases
