Ditto - I've got it parked 20 miles away but can't get to it cause of the snow! 3 days ago it was 80... now the driveway is covered with a foot and a 1/2 worth of snow that my wifes celica can't get thru!

Yeah, I don't believe it either but she did.

The federal tax plus TTL and hardtop option cost me $9,300.

Sat and watched stuff drip from it. It's like when you fix one leak it can't sand the pressure and it drips from somewhere else.. I guess all that CJ badassness has to get out somehow if you don't drive it for a few days...

I put the fiberglass front fenders and new Bushwacker pocket flares on it. I have a few more things to do before it gets painted.

84 CJ7 Northstar V8
91 YJ Renegade.

I've been in this rut plenty long enough, I know what to expect. Weather my day is hell, or weather it goes well is kind of up to me I guess.

Washed it, took the top down and took the kids to the movies. It hit over 75* here today, go figure.

1986 CJ7, 4.2 w/4.0 head, TFI-HEI hybrid ignition, Clifford manifold w/Holley 390 w/cold air intake, OBA, 4.5" lift, Woody CV shaft and Tattons in front, 4.10 gears - lunchbox in front, Truetrac in the back, twin-sticked, blower upgrade for running topless, trying to keep it simple.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.

Mounted my winch

Took it off the TJ almost three years ago, it's been setting on a CJ mount, have moved it twice…. It’s about time.

And only took three trips to the hardware store.

No disrespect, but...After a few beers these new jeeps just look like they have a severe under bite, smoke with an expensive tobacco pipe and talk with a pretentious Ivy League - New England accent. Look and the picture and see for yourself!

Orange paint shooter guy, nice work. I had a room that color as a kid, no kidding. Can't say I'd do it today, but it brought some neat memories back. Okay, definitely couldn't do it again.

I like white better, hides my lousy painting skills much better.

I took mine to the store the other day and had to put some water remover and a new fuel filter in. Gas that sits over the winter without something like Stabil in it will make your jeep run on about one cylinder...and make your blood pressure go way up.

A 4.0 head conversion and poison spyder cage are on the docket for this year, and maybe a flat bottomed transfer case skid plate. And that rock ring for my front end is on the list too, damn, I gotta get off my a** and do some wrenching.

Life gets in the way of making plans, but I still have my jeep, so it's all good.

Well it was yesterday, but I finished up rebuilding my Carter BBD Carb, it runs a lot smoother, I have a few small adjustments to make, but it idles so much smoother. I think this Tues. I am going to install my new Equus Triple gauge kit.
