Same dude, I was like 400 yards from home when I smelled the gear oil. Lucky me. I lost every bit of gear oil in that diff.

Didn't even leave my house today, gave the jeep a rest. I did work with my dad on some preliminary sketches of what the front and rear bumpers we are building will look like. Here are his sketches of the front (he is an engineer so his drawing skills are superior) let me know what you guys think, the round things are lights, and we may build a stinger to add to it

Yea, I was honestly suprised. That's why I think he's getting the bug. And thanks! I think it looks bland until I get everything done on my list. Maybe new fenders or headlights for christmas.

Got my Jeep back from having the tranny rebuilt.
Bought my lift kit that I've been wanting since I was a sophomore in high school.
Found out I have an oil leak somewhere, hopefully it's "minor". Paying for it will be fun after $1375 tranny and $745 for the lift.

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

Getting the hardtop ready for the winter. Spent a few hours taping cleaning and painting the interior of the top. Why would anyone want white is beyond me, to each is their own. Painted it satin black and it looks great.

I appreciate the support earlier. I'm not new to offroad, but I am new to Jeeps. My last rig was a K5 with 1-tons with 5:13's and ARB's, big block on propane, ORD doubler tripple sticked, and 49 irok's with only 8 total inches of lift. Naturally this required LOTS of metal massaging and butchering. I'm not ready to go to that extent with my new toy, so I figured if I really want to be able to use it with 35's I would need some fender clearance. I flexed it out tonight with a forklift and can already stuff the fender with the sway bar disconnected.

I figured with so many Jeeps on the trails there must be something to it, so I'm gonna give it a go. Although it does seem odd to own something less than a week and already be cutting the factory control arm mounts off the frame! URE in 3 weeks, still lots of work to do!.

It's good to have you on board. It sounds like you have some good knowledge to bring to the forum.

I am suspect of your father's claim of being an engineer. That doesn't look like a napkin from the local watering hole.

Haha, well he works for a power company so he was happy to be drawing something other than power lines. Not too bad for a 2 minute sketch....much better than mine and that took me like 30 minutes....this was the drawing I sent him
