Ordered front and rear smittybilt bumpers and found out they are about a month on back order. ( did catch the last day for 20% off through 4wheelparts though). After that I did some light wheelin and tore second gear completly out of my NV3550 ( unfortunatley it's my daily driver ). Currently shopping for aftermarket upgrades or might just have a local guy rebuild it for me. Overall pretty sh#$!y day!!!

I gotta park my jeep on curb sometimes just to fit... VCU is a big commuter school and parking in downtown Richmond is a pain in the ***. No snow though, I think we have a snow buffer around us..

Now I need some serious advice on how to remedy that problem.

Couldn't get the bolt out of the upper bracket for the stock rear track bar...cut the track bar in half and then managed to wiggle the bolt out.

Got all my CAs put in the rear end...then had to call it quits early.
i did the same thing pissed me off >.< I ended up picking up a nut splitter from napa for about 15.00 and split the nut in half. Took 2 minutes at most

Replaced the passenger side tail light. The connector had come apart. Now I can quit worrying about getting a ticket!

where to start...

new headlights (sylvania xtra vision), d-ring hitch shackle, center caps for my cragars, blacked out headlight bezels, bought farm jack from tractor supply for $40, made mount out of exhaust clamps mounted to roll bar (for farm jack), fixed my back window (sewed zipper back in with 50lb test fishing line), fixed my rock lights, went to the jy and picked up some spare shafts for my dana 30, installed EMP steering box skid, and lastly bought some jks disco's from a fellow wheeling buddy for $50!

ok, so that was what i did today and yesterday.
