New speedo gear, Skid Row oil pan skid, control arm skids, new slotted disc brake rotors and pads. After the football game, going to bleed the brakes and take it for a test run after all the mods. Ended up leveling it front to back by added one set of extra spacers on the front. Total lift 3.5 inched. Unfortunately I will have to park it Tuesday and go back to work for 6 weeks.

I got Magnaflow exhaust installed on my 4 cylinder 2.5 liter for $125 in 20 minutes and rotated my tires. I'm good to go and sound like a beast (at certain RPM's ).

Mounted my CB, though its not hooked up yet. Have to go pick up a new antenna and cable.

Also custom cut some 3/4" rubber matting to line the back of the jeep. Will post pics tomorrow, turned out really well though. Just found a $40 horse stall rubber mat at tractor supply and took the circular saw to it. Fits like a glove and will be much easier to clean.

well...this weekend i spent all of it in the ggarage. I removed the flares, cleaned em up, and painted them. I ground some of the rust off the frame and painted, i washed the polished/waxed her, then i put the flares back on and i also rotated the tires. Inspected brakes while te tires where off and realized im going to need to do a brake job in the near future.

Well, this past weekend I went from my summer set-up:

to my winter set-up:

I'm going to miss top down though.

Oh well. I guess I'll appreciate the hard top on those snowy days.

Had my Crager Soft 8's installed. They look damn good! I was scared of going black on black, but its nice. No more rubbing on my springs on my control arms! I went with the 15x8 with 4" backspacing. Now I just have to figure out what the clunking/squeaking is coming from my front end.

Also took my gf wheeling for the first time today. Scared the shiite out of her, but it was really only about a 20 degree incline with some roots to climb over going up and down!

Today I decided to do a little off-roading. All was going well until on the way back I got stuck. The trail itself isn't bad, but there is one spot where there is a bunch of stuff piled up to allow for crossing. Well, part of it got loose and I ended up on top of a concrete pipe. I managed to get myself off, but my driver side step... well... it didn't survive. :P No other damage except for a small ding/scratch at the bottom, right by the step. That said, I think I'm gonna try to save up for some real rock rails.
