Gave it a bath, and a quick wax with TW liquid ice




Also made a new driveshaft boot, and ran out of zipties. I'll throw a ziptie on the front of it tomorrow

Putting on my Rampage Frameless Soft top... Since I keep the house around 64°… Figured heating blankets would greatly help warming up the top

OPDA dialed to zero this morning. Running well...excellent oil pressure and temp.

New exhaust in the morning. Old one was a flowmaster but changing to a nice quiet stock replacement.

After that, picking up a "new" skid plate from the wreckers. #3
