That's hilariously awesome. I've done the same thing trying to check this thing out. Like you said - gotta be some great shots in that bunch! lol New toys. lol I wish this camera had a "machine gun" feature like yours - that camera you have is "full auto" . . .

Yep! And luckily all I have to do is dump em onto the hard drive. It's the wifey's job to sift through them all. (Except the Jeep pics. They go on my computer)

Full 8 hour detail and engine compartment cleaning. They did a great job. I took the door trim and roof rails off before hand. The door trim is going to get painted the same color as the wheels and the roof rack is getting replaced by the Gobi Stealth in a couple weeks. The Weathertech floor liners and vent visors can go into a clean Jeep now.

Now that the engine compartment is nice and clean, I can install the HID ballasts and wiring harness. I haven't completely decided yet, but I think I'm going to go with the ARB air locker and the deluxe air compressor for it, another reason I wanted the engine compartment clean.

It's all rainy and crappy now, so pictures will have to wait.

Just got back from a 13 hour drive to AZ and back. She performed like a champ! These big heavy 295s and the Hemi moves them up the grades like nothing ever changed

The kit I got only came with the 55mm lens but I got a 200mm lens as another present. I love it lol. The manuals for mine are just like yours too, looooong. But I cheat as use auto a lot. I took a photography class in school but I don't remember any of it lol. Been trying to brush up on my skills. The only other thing I've bought for it so far was a backpack to carry it in. Next thing ill probably get is a tripod.

Because I added 1/4" spacer on top of my OME HD in the front and a 1.5" spacer in the rear....my stock rear track bar needed to be replaced. Today I installed Rusty's adjustable rear track bar to get the axle centered back underneath. Great Product...very sturdy. It was $170.00 shipped. Install took me 1.5 hours but only because I was taking my sweet time and was doing it in a parking lot.

Thanks...I reviewed my old message I had sent you and your response. I ended up using 1/2" longer length than the stock bar and it seems to be nearly perfect.

Not at this moment. Due to where I am at, I can't be taking pictures without causing security concerns...I will eventually get some. One thing to note as well is that the adjustable end is different than yours. It was zinc plated with a grease fitting. I still need to extend the rear bumpstops and figure out a better wheel spacer/tire/wheel combo. I like the AEV's but I'm not sure I can justify that expense.

"Strong Arm" replacement struts were on-sale at the parts store today. Got two for my ligtgate and one for the hood. Under $40 for all 3. Now they both go up on their own again.
