Hey guys, new here. Today, actually, I washed my jeep. *gasps*

But yesterday, I did this:

First time taking it out, and it did amazing. Went through everything at the local wheeling spot and only came close to getting stuck once. Never had so much fun in my life! Glad I found the forums so I can keep fueling my new addiction.

I paid cash for mine. But now I am in debt for the lockers. Is a jeep really ever paid off?

I bought some door edge protectors from Orilleys auto parts. Going to put them on my Aluminum Half doors to hopefully keep them from rubbing so much on the door sill. Should keep them from rattling as much.

Drove it in three inches of fresh snow this morning.

OH and yesterday I dropped $370 on new pads, rotors, and getting a new tailpipe installed at the muffler because I got a little too eager on Saturday down at Badlands.

I installed my 29Mhz antenna last week and tried it out while 'wheeling in the mountains over the weekend. The radio is still lying loose between the driver-side door and seat, but I'm hoping to finally find a spot for it this weekend. It'll be an easy-to-remove kinda setup though, because I want to be able to see it and then it'll necessarily be conspicuous to would-be thieves too...

Here's the antenna base I used. Anyone recognise it? It's basically a copy of one I saw on Quadratec's site - hope they're not gonna have issues with me copying it, hehehe - which I had made locally. It's not exactly the same, but I think it looks quite neat; certainly a lot better than the hole everyone from radio fitment shops to friends were saying I should drill into the body!
