Yesterday I replaced my stock axles that had 3:07 gears in them with axles that have 4:10 gears in them. The rear axle has chromoly steel axle shafts and a Detroit locker in it! It's still a d35, but for $300 INSTALLED, I feel it's a good move for now.
What a difference in power/responsiveness! Make running my 33X12.50's MUCH nicer!! It sure nice to actually maintain speed going up those inclines on the freeway.

Changed my oil and gave it a much needed bath. Also greased it up really good.

Made a pair of quick-disconnect Ram-air wind directors to overcome diminished airflow due to a winch. I'm making a long highway journey (4000 miles) to Ouray, so I'm hoping these will "redirect" more air onto radiator. Hope it works.

Went to pull off the factory spare tire carrier and break loose the bumper bolts in prep for putting on the new bumper/carrier tomorrow, and realized I've lost my wheel lock.

Just had the fronts off a couple weeks back to put new brakes in. Found the bag, lug wrench, can't find the lock for the life of me. Spent hours cleaning the garage and no dice.

Swore once or twice, and we'll see if it pops up tomorrow.

Picked up a RockWare Trail Cage that was already powdercoated for $150 off of Craigslist. Man I love that website.

I cleaned out the throttle body. Had some black grime in there, I guess dirt.

I wanted to remove my TBS, but forgot that I chunked the bolts for it. Wanted to check gas mileage without it.

Drove out to the lake and had to drive over some granite rocks and washout area's. That's where the best fishing is, where only jeeps can go.
