I went to a swap meet sponsored by a few of the local clubs and bought my TJ a winch and fairlead. They need a little work, but I got the deal to make it worth it.

Today she gets her spring cleaning and I might get around to installing the RE Superflex LCA's in the rear if I can find the time.

What did I do to my TJ today? I put a canoe on top of it and took it to the river. Tooled along the gravel bar kicking "Folsom Prison Blues".

Went to Uwharrie on Friday and cleaned her today.

98TJSport - I use Westley's Bleche-Wite Whitewall/Blackwall Tire Cleaner on mine. Can tell the diff by looking at the bottom pic. Did not remove the wheels to clean today so inside is still dirty.

I gave up on trying to decide where to mount my Cobra 29 cb radio in the jeep and dropped it in the center console, drilled a small hole out the bottom and ran the wires under the carpet - then mounted an external speaker behind my head on the side of the speaker box (behind the rollbar) and life is sweet! I can even hear the cb with the top down, running down the highway over the roar of my procomp MT's!

Between this weekend and the past few days I've been able to re-attach the body to the frame. I also installed the front springs and shocks from the OME HD kit. Tomorrow, I'll be putting on the rear springs and shocks. Hopefully, I'll have my Jeep back on the road by this weekend!!!
