What did you do to your JK today?
 
Stole this idea from the TJ forum who stole it from the YJ forum. When I had my TJ this was one of the best threads to get ideas from and was full of great pics.

I'll start us off.

Today I powerwashed the heck out of it after my trip on Sunday to the Badlands. See HERE for trail report.

Should have started this one this weekend, I would have something useful to put into it...today I didn't even drive it...:(

However, this weekend I changed the oil in the engine and the diffs...

Drove it on a short business call then later back to the dealer for water leak. Got the tires muddy on a construction site :2thumbsup:

Another thing I did today is remove the AC vent rings for painting. Bought two cans of Rescue Green from the dealer and a can of duplicolor clear coat from O'Reilly. Need to pick up primer tomorrow. I'll be sure to post up pics when done.

Came home from the dealer because they can't fix the leaky top (lol). They have to order parts. Going back Monday.

Yesterday I drove her on the beach, and tore up (not in a bad way) the beach and had lots of fun.

drove it for the first time (and my first stick experience) in morning rush hour traffic!

that was fun!

Showed it off to a few coworkers, then wiped down the dash/radio/instrument cluster to get rid of all the dust that came in from having the top down on 2 miles of overgrown two-track road by the lake the other night.

Came home, and told myself for the 8th night in a row that one day, it'll rain again, and I'll get it in some mud. It is only 8 days old, I guess. It's play-day will come...

I had my Jeep in the shop all day getting the squeaky clutch fixed. Runs great now.

Worked on my Mopar front bumper mods to fit the Warn PowerPlant. :2thumbsup:

All this sounds awesome. Pictures anyone?

cyberpunk 10-01-2008 09:36 AM

Yeah guys, let's keep this thread going with detail and pics.

I'll put pics up tonight after I get done painting the vent surrounds (Stupid primer)

Here's a pic I stole of what it "should" look like when I'm done, minus the steering wheel spokes which is only for '08 and above.

I pulled mine into the shop I work at, and tried to see why my e-brake isn't working. Pulled the covers off the center console and saw a "U" shaped metal spring/bracket (?) in there that looks out of place, but I can't figure out where it goes. Anybody know anything about the e-brake mechanism?

Yesterday I tried once again to isolate the cause of my death wobble post-fixed caused by this a few weeks ago:
