Installed Some Drake Hold Downs

Finally got around to installing some Drake Hood Hold Downs.
Functionally I think these will kill the hood flutter.

Those are awesome. I never thought I would be envious of hood latches. Damn I miss working on my Jeep.

Put in new silverstars 4000k headlights. No more crappy yellow headlights now, ill take night pictures soon. Affordable way to brighten up the road without dropping a bunch of coin on LED's or halos

Took doors off for first time and not easy at all, figured I might as well take hinges off and rhino line them to get rid of nasty bubbling paint from factory.

I would like to k ow the quality of the hold downs after bout 3 mo that I have heard reviews that they rust. I really like their look and style but have just gone with the day star polyester replacements while I research more regarding the drake option.

went off roading last night @8pm with a buddy. it was on our way home from camp, it was supposed to be a hill / trail ive done lots of times, 5 min then go home. so ive got the wife in the front and the two kids in the back. we start heading up and there's some logs in the way, okay get out move them and keep going... 4 low 2nd gear flooring it trying to get up this muddy trail... wife is holding on with a death grip, but i make it up the long uphill part. my buddy in his F-150 makes it up 90% of the way and just starts spinning his tires and going nowhere, so i back down and try to tow him up the rest of the way... nope doesnt happen just too muddy, you know that this slippery mudd you just cant get a grip on. so he backs down the hill, I keep going back up and 1 min later I get to a part of the trail where I cant make it any further with out sliding into a tree. so I tell my wife we have to back up and turn around. So I start backing up, hit a spot that was super muddy and slide about 3 feet off the trail. So F'd. pics do no justice. but it took 1 1/12 hours to get me turned around and going back down. had to use a tow strap,tow cable and a tree that was behind me to swing me around 180 degrees. it took my Dad's Jeep to get me out. I almost lost my driver's side front panel, mirror,bumper and who knows what else, it was steep enough I could of rolled it. lots of lessons learned last night. I will never do something like this again with my "minivan" wheels. I told my wife I need my 35's NOW, bumper and winch, and some off road lights.

The first time never is easy. Everytime after that is super easy.

Yesterday put doors and top back on cause I couldnt park in the garage anymore.

Not true. 2012 here and my first time was just about a month ago (shame on me). Took me less than 20 mins and was surprisingly easy.

Everyone's "first time" is different. Some are quick and easy, others are slow and require more effort to complete the task :-)

BUT no matter how it was, most people remember their first time !
