found couple of hours to do a very basic maintenance so i "winterized" my STT PROs by cutting some tread sipes with a tyre tread cutter.
Finally fixed the license plate holder which was rattling for over 4 months
Removed a liberate amount of dryed mud with some rocks (looked like a pottery clay) from trans crossmember and skid plates
Changed engine oil. Repaired broken mount on the charcoal canister and installed the skid for that.
Noticed a rust hole on tank skid - need to remove it, sandblast and weld back. But this has to wait until spring
Noticed a small coolant leak from the lower intake manifold vee between the heads

What did you do to your JK today?

My jeep came with dropped pitman arm. It hit bracket at full left turn had to notch bracket also sway bar rubbed on bracket, ground down a small area on sway bar. Everything is clear now. Steering feels alot tighter. Mine came with rough country 3.5” lift. I took their axle side bracket off when mounting the synergy trackbar. I will b putting that bracket back on tomarrow so the track bar is at the same angle as my drag link. Was getting a little bump steer, will see what happens when i put the axle bracket back on for track bar

Installed a Teraflex rear adjustable track bar to center my rear axle. It was only off a bit, but it bothered me. Especially after installing the teraflex front adjustable track

I finally changed the oil on my JKU (2011) Rubicon. Sometime soon I'll also change the fluid in the diffs & tranny. Since I'm not sure about changing the anti-freeze fluid, which needs to be changed, I will be researching this on the forum & net. The odometer just went over 70,000 so I'm trying to figure out what all needs to be done maintenance wise. My joints ache too much in the cold, so I may delay some things till it warms up. My body sounds like my very old Ford did: creak, creak, crak, groan, etc. (I think I need to start doing yoga or something like it to loosen the muscles & joints).

Looking at the pics above I'm very impressed by the cleanliness of all the garages. Neither my garage nor my shop are anywhere close to those above in cleanliness or organization. I guess I need to work on that next year!
Happy New Year to everyone.

Installed Christmas goodies, KC rear floods, windshield slimlite LED’s, engine compartment lights, 4 switch Apollointech pod, routed iPhone cord (for Alpine i207 Apple Play) Garvin inReach Nav/front cam power cord under the dash tray and moved Rigid DSS lights to grill guard.

Yes, it gets dirty whenever time allows

Looks great!
How do you like the Apollointech pod?

I get mine later this month.

The Apollointech is great so far. Easy install and works as promised. Build quality seems good and instructions are usable.

overt the past few weeks, Gadget's big upgrades were a K&N intake/snorkel, and Teraflex Falcon 3.1 shocks...





she also got a pair of Rigid Ignites for ditch lights, Crown 3-6" lift extended brake lines, a complete set of MetalCloak DuroSpring jounce bumpers, and 4 hand-me-down coil spacers which netted about 1/2" more lift.

Installed PSC big bore steering. I picked up the hydraulic assist kit but have not installed the piston yet. Moves the 37” tires very nicely. Will be installing the piston soon for rock crawling.
