Hey, if you put 15" wheels on what was factory 16/17/18", does it screw with the ABS electronics, or any of the other computer crap? I'm asking cuz my tire guy said it would, and to stay clear of 15's for my factory 16's. Any light that won't go off? Buzzes? you know, annoying stuff

No it doesn't screw anything up. That is a really weird thing to say. The only thing that buzzes is the TPMS because I left them on my old wheels

So I took her out wheeling today and got some body damage

Both the bumper "end caps" have a big dent in them, my rear left taillight is hanging off, A little dent/scratch on my door, and I got a little rip in my top

It was muddy so I slid off a rock into a tree. I hate mud.


I will take some pictures tomorrow and upload them.




I had a really fun time wheeling again though. It ended up the guy who I sold my old TJ too was there so I got to wheel with my old baby again. That was pretty neat. I had a blast. Now I just need to do a few repairs and get a new front bumper.

I might do that for now but I was going to buy a new bumper anyways. This just might be an excuse to speed up the process






I made my first jeep payment today

It put my front soft doors together and put them on last night. They need quite a bit of adjusting still.


Tonight I will be putting the CB and rear soft doors on.







front bumper will hopefully be ordered next week

thanks guys

I am very pleased how she is turning out. The new doors make it feel more like a jeep.


Next on my list is full size spare, extended bumpstops, front bumper, tire carrier, winch, more skids and armor, then a bigger lift
