Installed some clear turn signal markers after swapping the amber ones with a fellow JF member. Thanks djflyy.

Picked up my TJ from the body shop. Then I started poking around...the idiots had overspray all over the underbody near the sections they worked on! Now obviously, most car owners never look behind their tires, but come on, you can see everything under a lifted jeep! Is it just me or would anyone else be pissed off about their freshly mis-painted JKS disconnects?

I hate to do this, but I'm taking her back! I shouldn't have taken her home in the first place, but I've been missing her too much.

spray some aircraft remover on your discos... that'll take the overspray right off

As I write this, I'm waiting to hear back from my extended warranty company to see if they're going to cover the cost of my exploded Dana 30. If they are, and the difference between a factory replacement and new custom 44 isn't too bad, I just might pay the difference for the upgrade.

I also have an OME 2.5" kit complete with F/R adj. track bars, rear sway bar links, and JKS discos en route to my house. Call Dirk @ DPG Off Road, he rocks!!!! I'm hoping to have the axle complete and the kit on by next Sunday's trail ride

Took some painters tape, and a can of Krylon Fusion do the fenders. Boys look brand new again!

Installed a new tie rod and ends that is used on a 98 Grand Cherokee with a 5.2L V8, I got the idea from Stu Olson's web site.
