Watched some guy pull out my rear axle so that he could replace my brake plate and brake pads. 4 hours and 400 dollars later my rear brakes scrub worse. Anyone in North Carolina's triad want to be my Jeep Guru and teach me to do these things myself?

Air goes in and out, blood goes round and round. Anything else is bad.
May the Force be with you.

Washed, scrubbed, vacuumed, and cleaned my TJ today as it's going to be our "gettaway vehicle" for my wedding tomorrow.

Jeez, who'd of though I'd have to clean my Jeep. It was either than or drive off in a Corolla.

spent a couple hours in the shop this morning...

1. reinstalled my Skid Row engine skid...had removed it when we installed the Atlas last month

2. remounted my CO2 tank and bracket...had to modify it slightly to get it to work with the fuel cell I now have...

3. topped off the rear diff...it's spewing out the vent, and we can't figure out why...will probably just relocate the breather to the top of the housing, rather than on the tube...

4. removed my Bestop Tire Carrier, getting ready to fab up something else:

5. modified my sound bar to get it to fit over the two new bars we added to the cage last week:

6. picked up these beauties:

we'll take some time this week or next to get 'em put in the front...

I relocated my winch control box to the spot under the brake booster. It opened up more of the grill for cooling, and the box is protected from the elements.

'11 JK Unlimited Sport S, stock for now...
