Not really, just had it parked all winter pushed into the corner of the garage. I plan on pulling it out this weekend to get it on the road for the year. It will probably need a new battery as the one that's in it is 15 years old and was sounding a little weak toward the end of last year.

I still need to make a center console and get some seat belts for the rear seat. There are a few other odds and ends but nothing major. I'll be sure to update if I do anything exciting.

Thanks for checking in.

Check out what I just scored for a $100 with the cart.



Cleaned up nice. The 110V with .24 wire is a nice compliment to my 220V with the .035 wire. I could have used this a few years ago but a nice addition to the tool list none-the-less. Time to try and find another CO2 tank.

Very good buy! You'll find yourself using that for more than just sheet-metal too. That's a nice welder!

Headed to the track.

First time I have towed something with the Jeep.

That was my first time towing anything with the Jeep, not that there was much behind it, but I didn't really notice the trailer was there except for a little bit under braking. That was probably exacerbated by the upward angle of the trailer tongue.

I've long since retired from racing but now ride as a coach for MidWestTrackDay.com. Here is a poser shot of turn 3 at Blackhawk Farms.

Hey Guys. I know I haven't been posting much lately but I have been following along with all the threads I am subscribed to.

Not much new with the CJ7, just been driving it around this summer and enjoying it. Found a very small weep that is coming from the D300 input shaft, damn Omix oil seals are junk. I replaced the new Omix output shaft seal with a SKF seal from Napa and should have done the same thing with the input shaft. Now I get to pull it out to replace it. It is leaking so slowly that I'm not going to worry about it for a while.

One new addition to the family is my new co-pilot, Peyton. He is currently eleven weeks old and is 3/4 Husky and 1/4 Chocolate lab. So he is basically a short haired Husky with floppy ears. He's smart as a whip and learned "sit" and "down" in only three days. Potty training has been going well as he already prefers to go in the grass. The teething/chewing and wanting to eat everything in sight is still a work in progress. Puppies will be puppies.



He's got one blue eye and one brown. Already weighs 20 pounds at only eleven weeks.

Ha! Got you in the mood for a pet when I tried to give you a cat!

Nice looking pup. He should be a good dog and the ones that are mixed breed usually are not as high strung as purebreds. Sits good for pictures too. Yep good choice

Looks like a good one, Mike! Mine is too scared of my Jeep, since it still has open headers. Let us know how he does on wheeling trips!

This is a cool pic, but also a fail! Get a drop hitch if you want to maintain the cool factor at 100. Stiiiilllllll... this is pretty sexy.

Peyton?? Who names their dog Peyton? Not CJ? or Cobra? I had an AKC Husky once, when I was a teenager. My neighbor shot it when she ate all their chickens! Wasn't really her fault, as the chickens went walking through our backyard, but the neighbor wouldn't believe me. he will get doggie judgement one day...

Good to see some cool pics, Mike. The Jeep is badazz as ever. Thanks for the updates.

Go Fish! <*////><

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
