Both rear fenders are done now. Just need to cut some more plastic to get the lines right. Better pictures will come when there's daylight.





Now I've got some parts to put on the JK. Hope that doesn't take me a month and a half...

This is about all I wanted to do. This Jeep makes the Farm fun again and I don't want to take that away. I have some more small things to take care of, but the major work is complete.

Daily driver updates today. Replacing the nearly 17 year old, front door speakers with some newer factory speakers. The plug is even the same, so no change in wiring. Also, these speakers came out of a Hellcat! Should see a nice boost in horsepower!

This Jeep decided to steal most of my Saturday. After driving 100 yds from Luke's house, everything went dead. Spent all afternoon messing around with the Jeep in the cold and walking back and forth through the snow. Finally ended up with a new battery and drove it home.

Now, on the way to work this morning, DEATH WOBBLE!! I guess I'll have some new parts to install soon...

I've had some dead batteries do some weird stuff that you wouldn't expect.

These UCA bushings are not meant to be "flex" joints.

Those dowels that come with the Felpro gaskets work fantastic.
