I can't decide if I'm going to cut the top up for a hard bikini top like I planned or if I am going to try to fix it and use it.

Clayton's skid only has two bolt holes on the frame.

Figure at the most I'll have around $145 into it. Still not sure if I want an overhead console, but if not, I'm sure I can get my money back out of it.

My new front bumper came, so I pulled off the bent piece of junk and put it on. It's a Smittybilt, which people seem to have mixed opinions on here about, but I don't do much off roading, and got it shipped to my door for under $300, so I can't really be picky. Here's a shot of it on.



Looks pretty empty up front at the moment, but I'll be going light shopping in a bit. Going to put a couple 6"'s where the winch would go and out towards the sides, and it should fill it up enough until I get a decent deal on a winch. Like the look of it, but now I'm going back and forth on getting the matching rear bumper...we'll see.
Link doesn't work for me...

Had rubicon rocker guards installed, because the hardware would have cost me about $80. So I decided to go to a body shop, the installed them for me for $75 using rivets and bolts for underneath. I say good deal. Next up on order are my drop kick slyders, gonna take two weeks to get them to me.

Replaced the spark plugs as they were in desperate need of changing. Amazing how a simple fix like this can make the whole engine run better.

Please get some pics up.. If they can still flex a little with a 3" SL and 1" BL that's the next size I plan on going when my 33's run out.. You also have a D35 rear, are you not worried about that with 35's? Do you have a CV/SYE? Just wondering because I would love 35's if they can work with a 3" SL and 1" BL.

Finally got around to cleaning out my cowl drain. That is a pain to get off and on. Have pics if anyone wants to see what they are getting into, it’s pretty easy though once you see what’s there.
