putting a 90* elbow on the drain tube

Stripped down my new half doors in preparation for paint, dropped the lock cylinders off at a locksmith to have them rekeyed. $30 for the pair ..... OUCH!!!

Got in late from work, but had enough time to set up the plan (easiest available to me) to add additional pipe to the roll cage over the driver & passenger. About 1/2 way done with all the welding....after that, it's just cleaning up the joints, spraying black, and ordering the new padding.

Installed my AtoZ Rocker Guards and covered up my snorkel hole. I used some diamond plate that I painted black like the rocker guards to cover the snorkel hole. I think it turned out nice. Trying to decide if I want to put the diamond plate on the other side to even things out. I don't really want to drill the hole in the Jeep though.

Tried to do new spark plugs, wires, and distributor cap and snapped the tab for the screw on the distributed cap on the distributor itself.

Put the 36" TSL's on and fix the front lower control arm brakets on the axle. Also cleaned the K&N since the snorkel tends to suck in leaves from trees near by. Today I will be replacing the rear pinion yoke and drive shaft. YAY!

Bought it, drove around awhile with a big smile on my face, and then reluctantly came back home.

Not to be an ***, but it looks like your diamond plate goes under your rockers... you might want to re-think that as it will mess with the preload (if you did pre-load) on your rockers. That could spell damage to the tub, which is what I presume you're trying to eliminate with the rockers in the first place!
