Bumper mounted my KC Daylighters. Ready for the NYE night run tomorrow at Superlift!

Real name: Ken

You can debate all day long about where the name "Jeep" came from but the simple truth is, all the really good four letter words were already taken.

removed the front driveshaft and tried to grind off the rivets holding the bumper on, my brother stepped on my cutoff disk so that pretty much halted the progress. next on the list is to get the rear axle out and new perches burned on.

Installed new seat covers that were a Christmas gift from my wife (Thanks Honey!). Rotated tires, changed the oil and cleaned out some of the clutter that clogged up the back.

Plan to list my soft doors on Craigslist today.

°lllll° Am I broke yet??

Today I did the "covered in mud" mod. Most fun I've had working on it, hahaha.

I also ordered some Hella off road lights and a new headlight knob, changed the oil, and cut off the ridiculously ugly tail pipes that stuck out almost a foot past the rear end.

Funny, I have been sitting on the beach in Maui today for the 7th day in a row (visiting in-laws) and dreamed about getting home to NorCal to pull my motor and trans to rebuild them both on my cj7 this winter.

I am sure my dreams will quickly change as I am back at work then spending nights in the driveway with 30* weather with busted knuckles and broken bolts covered in undercarriage sludge, blood and rust...
