In the last 4 day's I have, taken off the front bumper, installed Smitty winch plate, Warn XD9000i, Smitty rock sliders w/ side rail, Optima Blue D34M, relocated factory fog lights on top of the winch, and broke the plastic nipples off my front locker actuator testing the Rubi's new found abilities. Jeep could have put a few more moments of thought into the placement of the locker acutators. It's like the engineer was made to come into work drunk on a Sunday and was like screw it, put 'em there, they'll fit. Anyhow, they'll be getting relocated under the brake booster this week.

Oh, and I bought her some touch up paint.... finally! And I got webbing to make some Oh poop handles.... Yay!
My stock end caps on both ends of the front were busted by a Subaru so removing them only took a hard kick on each of them. I was going to get flush fit end caps but it's a low priority for me.

Folded her rear seat forward and raised the top in order to gain space to transport the new 27", 5-drawer, caster-rolling tool chest I got from Home Depot as a display discount for $140. Finally, I have a place to put my wrenches and sockets and such!

Also cleaned out the garage for her. After painting the new BESRK (Ground Pounder Fab) bumper/carrier for her, I'd yet to sweep out the dusty layer of rattle-can particulate that covered the floor of the garage, and pieces of trash and bits of random stuff were everywhere, collected after various projects. I'm a slobby procrastinator sometimes.

Now if I can sell off my stock front and rear bumper, tires/wheels, headlights, tie rod, drag link, and other items, I could get enough space and money back to put both vehicles in the garage again and buy new stuff for her, respectively. Here's hoping to save enough for an Eaton E-Locker for the front to match the one that's soon to be installed in the rear with the S35 kit.

Put my doors and top back on (first time in 2 wks) because the weather turned wet.... Also, finally got some pics of my homemade 2"+ BB here is before:


AND....after:




The mod was just the spring spacers and some .25 inch flat stock to relocate the front and rear trackbars. (still deciding which shocks to get). Took a mild wheeling trip just to gauge how the springs will ride (with restricted droop).... it performed fine... cost so far= $8 for some grade 8 bolts (to replace some old rusted hardware).... And yes.... I know....need tires... New 33's are in the near future!!!

Cleaned the IAC, greased steering shaft body bushing (had the squeaks), seafoam thru the brake booster, replaced under-hood bulb, and replaced driver's side courtesy floor bulb.

okay, dumb question, how did you grease it? I mean its on my to do list, it looks like its not the greatest to access. Just curious if you did any thing special or not?

finished some painting on some small parts, need a new 'Rod End', may have a line on a York Compressor .. we will see
