i went to evansville, in and picked up a warn x8000i winch, 2 warn D-ring shackles, and a warn receiver tow shackle, and 2 more good tow straps. I know it isn't spooled correctly right now, the guy i bought it from broke his synthetic and put the steel cable on without it being on the jeep and I am going to re-spool it tomorrow!

Installed 2" BB and Procomp shocks today so the 33's can roll. Still need to put spacers up front for full turn clearance. Cheapest way to go.

After my little rescue adventure posted in Jeep Registry I had to fix my front axle. Both outer shafts were sheared off near the outer splines where the manual hub mounts. I got my new ones, and spent the day installing them. It also gave me the opportunity to change out u-joints, bearings and brake pads. It is good to have four wheel drive again.

Pics or it didn't happen Tim!

Today I ordered some EBC Yellowstuff pads, and slotted EBC rotors, along with some 6" over stock stainless brake lines. I hear that brakes are pretty important important, so I figured I should replace the **** that I have. I also never realized how insignificant the stock brake lines are now that I have discos, and all the flex.
