Oh not much, put a decal on my windshield. More if a temporary/joke. Little back story on the decal. I have a buddy who had his 73 vega drag car re painted and re lettered/decal this winter, and this was part of what's leftover.

I like the style of the vinyl, but not necessarily the decal word. But hey, you can't put a price on good friends and good fun

That decal is a reflective black, and actually looks damn good. But the letters are a little tall so the tail of the "Y" hangs down right into the top of my view. That's what was meant by the word. I am not too proud to embrace my stereotype... Haha

right on, that's what I'm talkin bout

I'm serious though, I'm going to get one made...probably different style, but it's right up my alley Not to mention my wife calls me that from time to time, especially when I come up with some genius solution for fixing a problem on the jeep

Thinking of trying a play on it though, maybe "WHEELBILLY"

My friends refer to me as the "sophisticated redneck" if it wasn't so long, I'd have that on my good decal.

They find it funny that I'm in to jeeps, guns, and barbecue, but eat organic vegetables, former coffee and craft beer.

OT-
Put the top back on
Can't wait to pick the bikini hardware up over the weekend and lose the full top.

I feel you I used to drive a real nice audi and enjoyed stepping out of it around town wearing some overalls and no shirt

On Topic - It's been raining quite good here for the past few days, I dooshed the interior real nice yesterday as water had collected on the tounneau and I backed out of a parking spot a little too quickly...I have GOT to pull the drain plugs and carpet SOON

Go for it, post pictures up when it's done. As for the not driving the stereotypical vehicle, I lived in Colorado springs when I was in the military, and I got all sorts of funny looks when I would go out in public rocking my redneck attire. Bibs, boots, flannel and generally worn out clothing. As Phil would say, "yuppies!" I guess they don't understand.

Mine would have been 2 years longer but thanks to the deer that hit me I just laid cash on top of the $2800 insurance check.

I'll live with the crinkle in the hood and door for a paid off Jeep.

Test drove it after putting the steering gear and lines back together last night. Also adjusted my e-brake and passed my state inspection!

Tried fixing my broken bump stop bolt last night, since I'm taking it wheeling this weekend. I drilled out the broken bolt and used the easy out which then broke off and now there's nothing to grip on it to get it out. You can't drill out that type of metal as well. No torches or anything available right now.... UGH!
I do have a plan to fix it which means welding a 2" metal bump stop to the top of the coil bucket until I can remove the buckets and fix them properly when I out board the shocks and move the upper coil mounts.
