I would keep the gap around 0.040/45.

Took the bikini top off. Ready for summer! Oh yeah, added the Bulldog. Don't be a hater. I'm an old Jarhead and I gotta have my bulldog.

Wheeled it this weekend. Was so glad to not have to worry about the hard top and doors. I bounced the roll bar off a rock on one trail. I could only imagine what it would of done to the hard top.

Emailed a guy about a CJ5 he has for sale, arranged to look at it on Saturday, reserved a car hauler trailer for the day. This could be a much better starting point than the Jeep I've had for almost a month. My Green Jeep has a rotted frame, the prospect is supposed to be better. Here's to hoping!

(here's a shot of one frame hole)


Did I post that already? Sorry if I did...

Installed a brand new 6 year old harbor freight winch and a set of pilot off road lights that came with it. Not bad for $150 with a mount and a bull bar(bar going on my buddies jeep).

Gotta love craigslist.

Ordered a "League of Sportsmen" license plate which will be personalized with CJ577. 77CJ5 was already taken. The League of Sportsmen plate is white with brown lettering and has the head of a big ole Buck on it. I'm not a deer hunter and would've prefered a big ole Bass but there isn't one of those offered in Kentucky.
I also put a zip tie on the foot of my Hi-Lift Jack. It was making a rather loud noise whenever I would hit a bump in the road. Problem solved!

That is cool. I need to get my Colorado plate and was thinking either 1977CJ5, 77CJ5 or CJSCJ5.
