Took my jeep out for the first time since installing all the upgrades last night. It was fun but the clutch started acting up and started smoking for no apparent reason. I don't recall being hard on the damn thing either, but it's running fine now.

Heard the rear end CLUNK a couple of times over the weekend, like something was binding at take-off. Gotta crawl under it one night this week and see what's happening under there. Fortunately (in this instance) it's not a daily driver.

Primed and painted an old donated pair of 6" KC Daylighters. Went to go and start wiring, then looked at the price of 12ft of 12ga wire at $8 and may decide to just order the $14 kit.

Had a Flowmaster 40 series welded up in place of the stock muffler. Sounds good, its not as loud as i thought it would be but its still breaking in so only time will tell.

Just installed my new 41 tooth speedo gear. Checked the speedo to the GPS and all is good....
I love it when the speedo is correct.
