So of the 4 things I mentioned on post #157, only #4 and #1 are going to get done for now. The lights are done (obviously), and the alarm should be done tomorrow (I'm really stoked about this C3 cell phone alarm thing).
I ordered the AEV diff skid but it doesn't fit with the long arm kit on my rig so that's a no go.
The full skid plate is on hold for now too. I'm debating whether or not to do it actually. I'm thinking about just getting a fuel tank skid and calling it good. A full skid will add weight, create a place for more weeds, debris, mud to collect, and make accessing the underside of the rig way more difficult. With the fact that most of the wheeling I do is dirt and sand and not big rocks, I just don't know. I'm open to opinions if anyone has a strong one.
The upside to holding off on the skid is it frees up a little cash to start some work on the TJ and the trailer!
Hopefully this TJ:
...will be looking much better in the next few weeks and hopefully this trailer:
...will be Rescue Green (in the areas that aren't covered in corners, Bushwackers, etc. Then later in the year I'll try to get around to turning it into a camp trailer.
Keeping my fingers crossed that these projects can be done halfways affordably so my wife doesn't leave me.
