Washed, waxed, buffed, and detailed the interior and exterior. I'd treated her too rough in the last few months and needed to make it up. The wax also helped even out the color of the hardtop which I'd bought used and was worn-looking.



Next up: fix the bent left corner of the front bumper with a few mallet hits and replace gasket for the rear diff.

Next up: Paint the fender flares, remove rusted out chrome tow hooks, fix the bent left corner of the front bumper with a few mallet hits and replace gasket for the rear diff.
Fixed it for you. Nice looking JEEP.

Wrecked it yesterday!!! Some idiot blew threw a stop light at a 4 way intersection and I ended up T-boning them...the jeep really doesnt look all that bad, both air bags deployed so I am going to assume that the insurance company will consider it totaled. Such a shame I miss it already. All the yellow stuff you see in the floor boards is corn, I had a 100lb bag in the trunk and it decided it wanted to explode.

Put the hardtop back on and washed it. I was really getting tired of the soft top.

I had the distinct pleasure of changing my starter in the parking lot of the camper dealer where I bought our camper, today in the rain during storms. I got soaked to the bone. but it's done and works great.
