I waxed it yesterday. And then it rained today. Needless to say, I feel stupid.

My step daughter is giving her dad the Honda back and taking my TJ to college.

Opened up my rear hatch in -15 degree weather and split the rear window in half on my soft top. It sucks when you are driving around town with a soft top in winter, but it sucks even more when you have a giant gaping split in the back and are driving down the freeway. I put some tin tape on it as a temp fix. Anyone got a back window for sale?

I added heat shrink on the pins in my 3/4" shackles. They are a lot quieter now.

I hope you got the xtreme warranty from 4WD hardware. I just broke my XRC8 winch. The clutch won't hold a load now. If you try to spool it in under its own power without a load, the clutch slips. I really messed it up.

Not today, but last night. We've been without power for 3 1/2 days, and while we were trying to get the generator unhooked, and main power restored I let my jeep idle behind my garage since it has been hard starting with all this cold. Forgot to turn the fan on, ooops. Top tank of radiator exploded. I guess I got the engine compartment good and clean though...
