Nothing to crazy happening with the Jeep lately. I’ve been working on giving her my best attempt at a rattle can paint job. This rain has really been messing me up though. Hopefully I can get that done before Saturday, suppose to go to barnwell.

Also just realized I never posted on here from the last trip I took in 2019. I couldn’t find anyone to wheel with so I went with a “Jeep club”. It was definitely a different wheeling experience than I was used to, but they were all nice folks. And really helped me out when I had issues. After complete boredom for most of the morning we were headed back for lunch and I had to stop and do some type of real wheeling before I lost my mind so they all gathered around to watch me go up a little climb o have done probably 5 other times. And then of course this happens. Drag link, stub shaft, brake line, were all toast.

Gonna update this thread a little bit more. Since I’ve let posted I forgot to add pics of the last trip I went on, which is actually the only one I’ve been on in 2020, it was in March right before the Chinese virus hit.
The Jeep did good on that trip, no breaks, and just keeps working.

All I’ve done since then is little things here and there. Removed the snorkel, lots of touch up to the paint job since the last trip. I also blew out 2 windows last trip but had 2 replacements from the parts XJ. When it happens again I’ll figure something else out. Installed a new carpet kit in the Jeep, that really made it quiet down in there and in my opinion made it look a little nicer. Had a little exhaust work done, installed a rear view mirror since I ripped off both door mirrors last trip. Installed this nifty high lift jack holder that goes behind the rear seat. I also checked on getting the AC going, I know nothing about ac, but it was going to be to expensive so I decided against it. I’ll worry about AC on the next Jeep.

cant wait for the hidden falls trip in a few weeks! Might even finally have a new trailer by then, fingers crossed.
