Dang haha that's why I am not really into getting muddy dont get me wrong I love it just as much as the next guy but I love to trail ride. Its a lot less expensive for me. When I do hit the mud you best believe the top is off.

Yep, notice the Jeeps are clean. Avoid all mud.

Replaced factory front track bar bushings with polyurethane ones. Next time I'll just buy a new track bar...

Ordered a Rear Bumper.

Cleaned it up real nice inside and out.

Then mounted my "Rescue Tool" and an iPod mount.

Rode the "stock" course at Jeeptoberfest, went up Ocala Jeep Club's RTI ramp and scored an 853. All in all a good day and lots of fun.

I drilled it but the outer metal part of the axle side bushing was jammed and my hacksaw blade was dull. The closest I have to a torch is a bic lighter haha.

On a good note- DW is gone!!

I have never liked the chrome grill on my LJ. I searched a few vids and threads on how to remove a TJ grill, and decided that it would be too arduous a task. I figured I would mask everything off and paint it in place. I started looking at it this morning and wait .... what is this? It's a chrome cover. Two plastic clips later and BAM ... original black underneath. Removed the headlight bezels and rattle canned them matte black. While I was at it, I masked off the body and winch and threw a quick coat of black primer on the bumper until I get around to having it powder coated.

Much better IMO.







The doors have been off for a while, so I'll probably bed line the chrome mirrors before I put the doors back on.
