Plus, my exhaust gasses now smell delicious.
That's awesome, I just dusted off a tube of Extreme Chedder if you want to make a snorkle!

Changed the oil yesterday.

Drove it to work today.

Poor thing hasn't been topless/doorless since I moved. Might have to work on my garage, so I have a place to put the top and doors.

Went to Best Buy and had them install a stereo for my birthday.
It was kind of nice 10% off for having them do HU + 4 speakers
Then $100 off for having it all be the same brand- Pioneer in this case.
It's like I got the HU for free.
Now I'm going to Radio Shack to look at CB antenae

aligned my headlights
got my fogs to work again and aligned those
moved my police scanner
fixed the 3rd brake light to clear a 33 spare
replaced the POS led bulbs in my dash which all went bad
went around and double checked all the bolts in the lift and finally got around to fixing my rear shock mount and no more rattling noises

a lot of routine maintenance/ getting ready to head back to school crap

OH and I just HAD to post this here...

Got a ticket the other day for tint on my full hard doors... sheriff was an ******* whatever...

so it was a "fix it" ticket and I love my tint on the doors so I took off my full hard doors... borrowed a buddies pair that are green as well, but no tint , went to the police station and the cop ripped up the ticket thinking I got the tint removed when all I did was swap doors!

I had to hold back so hard from laughing at the cop when he ripped up the ticket

THIS IS TRUELY... ONLY IN A JEEP (wrangler)

Doing a rebuild, I guess...

Started out with a blown motor in April...

Bought a Banks header, Flowmaster cat and cat-back, Hesco perf cam and double sprockets/chains/lifters, had local perf shop do head/block/crank. Adding six circuits with relays for GPS, computer, Skycaddie, and other fun stuff as they come across my scope. Got a 62mm throttle body and relieved my intake for it to work. Already had new suspension bushings in the box so...crawled under heep two weeks ago and punched a screwdriver through a rotten frame (knew it was inevitable - heep came from VA) so...bought a frame from Collins Bros and picked it up last Friday. Arranged with Select-Motors in LA today to acid-dip and eCoat it so will deliver it down there next weekend for that. (Gonna use my son's '06 LJ for that trip). Will go back together with all new fuel, brake, and rubber lines (new in boxes in the garage closet). Getting rid of two-inch BB and 3.5 in bl and going back together with 2" suspension lift and 1" bl. Will do a write-up and make pdf available to forum members. Frame will take 4-6 weeks according to Select. http://www.select-motors.com/car_res...ng_coating.asp
