I chased parts all day... This brake conversion will be completed after work tomorrow! Is it bad that everyone in our local autozone knows me by name & vehicle, already?! Lol...

Power Booster upgrade went without a hitch, untill I nick the line shaping the master cylinder so it would fit in the recess of the power booster, other than that 2 hours later I had brakes that would make the front end dip when I came to a stop.

Headlight upgrade by Jeephammer. I also rewired the taillights and ran the new wires inside the tub. No more worries about snagging wires on the brush. Rear bumper is half built and materials are on hand for the front bumper.

I had flat waiting on me when I got off the train. Call Wife > Pick up Truck > Take off Wheel > Drop 300 at the tire shop on a set > Grab Wife > Get my *** chewed about how this was a plot to get new tires > Back to the train station > put tire back on > Home. Could have been a better night, but yeah...I got new tires

Military Tail light mod

Just started on putting in military rear lights on my CJ. Still need to do other side and wire both. Have transfer case out and in process of rebuilding. Still need to pull trans.

I am in need of new ones.......These are shaking my JEEP and me apart. Not to mention with 4:88 gears I can only cruise at about 50mph. Planning on 35" tires this summer.
