Pulled my 4 wheeler out that got buried in the snow out in the back field trying to get some parts. Snow was so wet and deep I had to winch the wheeler to the Jeep 4 times. Got the wheeler out, drove that back and then went and got the Jeep. 2 feet of wet snow, with a 2" ice covering the ground under the snow and held it to the boards I went slipping and sliding all the way back out. I love my Jeep

Took the entire front end apart that is heavily customized to accomodate the 302 in order to replace the small c-clip that fell off the flexalite fan.

I threw on my new muffler and finally did an oil change. I replaced my Flowmaster 40 with one of those $25.00 Flowtech Raptor mufflers from Schucks. For the price its actually a pretty decent muffler. The Flowmaster was just too loud with no cat on there.

I moved the newly urethane coated house molding from the hood of the jeep into the house to dry. I moved it in and out of the garage this weekend doing a project. It's a garage trophy, I trashed my soft top last year. So it's sunny days before it comes out. It was nice today, I work nights, thought happy thoughts about driving and wheeling it and went to work.

I've done lots to it, but it was a while ago. It only needs a full roll cage, flat skid plate and those ever present CJ leaks fixed and she can be considered done. Maybe some new tires too, that's about it.

Last summer though, I tipped it over on it's side and busted the windshield frame, windshield and put a nice dent in the rear quarter panel about the size of a baseball. And oh yeah, it busted the tilt joint on my steering column, what a b***ch! Found a good donor on here from a fellow jeepforum member that basically gave me the thing it was so cheap. No more tilt column for me. I was 10 miles from any highway and driving home with a busted steering column makes for one long, nervous drive home. Thank god for my winch or I'm not sure how I would have ever gotten it home. And I forgot the camera to take those oh so humbling images for cubicle posting.

Hammer, patience, and one bad windshield frame and two months later....I got it roadworthy again. The next day, it started raining.. for weeks...

Well, sunday I spent about 2 hours cleaning it inide and out after a week of rain. So far this week it has been sunny and nice. probabally mid-high 70's. However it is supposed to rain again on Thursday, so the jeep is sitting in the garage all clean, and Im driving my focus for the time being. Probabally at the end of the month, after most of the rain has stopped, I will take off the hard top, and replace it with the bikini top for summer!

Replaced a cracked fuel line (between the rigid line to the FPR).

And while I was under the hood, I installed a set of 'town-and-country' land-yacht type horns out of a totalled OldsToronado I had lying around... (for no particular reason).

It's hard to say no to yoo-hoo, the name literally beckons...

Don't mind me, I'm just another FNG around here...

Installed a new steering stablizer. Took all the wheels of and checked my brake system all looks good. Started cleaning the frame of a coat of POR 15 and then decided to go hit a couple of mud holes. Well I guess I'll have to clean it all over again.
