I spent the day waxing it using my favorite professional grade Meguiars products

And my license plates arrived yesterday so I put them on!

And lastly, I posted an ad to sell my stock 215x75x15 tires - but no takers yet :-(. I figured $200 for 5 nearly new tires would sell, but maybe not...

I put on my hard top.

To most guys the day after the Superbowl is the coldest day of the year. At least there is still hockey. To me the day I put on my hard top takes that honor leaving the day after the Superbowl as a close second. As this usually occurs in mid October, at least there is still football.

I also changed my downstream O2 sensor. The old one was as bad as I thought it was. That put the stroke back in stroker.

K&N cold air intake that I ordered weeks ago finally got put in, and I love the way it sounds. Now I gotta go back to remodeling the house.

If it won't budge, get a bigger hammer, if it breaks in the process it needed to be fixed anyway.

Removed the front swaybar bolts, drilled a hole in the shank for a pin and a hole through the head for some wire. Swaged the wire from the head of the bolt to the pin, installed and VOILA! Homemade quick disconnect!

Got some 3M 4" grey grip tape, cut it in the shape of the sides of the windshield frame and fold down bracket, applied. Covers the tree limb scratches, prevents more, and looks pretty good as my jeep is silver.

Installed a rear bumper I bought on ebay from a place called Beach Offroad. Cost me 177.00 to my door and came with d-ring brackets and a 2" receiver. It's a little bit bowed towards the top and the finish isn't all that great but man is it sturdy! 1/4" 2x4 steel with 8 grade 8 mounting bolts! D-ring brackets are passed through the bumper and welded front and back. Receiver is attached in a cutout at the bottom and is continouously welded top, front, bottom and back. Drilling the holes for the inner 4 bolts wasn't too hard, but installing the inner driver's side bolts was a BI*CH!!

Bought a Thule Adventure 1150 galvanized trailer for hauling camping gear and whatever behind the Jeep. Cargo box dimensions are 3 1/2' x 5' x 14". The trailer will carry 1100 lb and only weighs 220 lbs empty. Snagged it up for 400.00. Silver galvanized box and frame, with black plastic fenders and silver wheels. Matches my Jeep colors and looks cool behind it! Here's a picture: http://jmcamper.com/trailer/index.ph.../image/31.html Mine doesn't have the Thule plastic top and the tail lights are round, but you get the idea!

Put on a Borla Cat-Back system. PITA to drop the skid and re-install, toughest part I think was getting the rubber hanger pieces off of the old muffler/tailpipe. Finally just broke out the grinder with a cut-off wheel.

Started to manually sipe my tires. I had them originally done at the tire shop but the tread has worn past the depth they did them at, they said they could not go any deeper.

I've been doing it with a razor blade and following the cut s on the edge of the lugs from the original. Im hoping it will help the traction now that its starting to rain in Washginton. If all else fails i may cough up for new tires...

Red marker lights

I, with the help of my dad and his arsenal of tools, installed some red 2 inch led on the corners. I freaked when the darn things didn't work!! It took me a minute to realize I had the pigtails plugged in backwards. I switched them up and everything is golden.

Grote brand lights are bright!
