1.) I screwed on a new window crank so that when I slam the door it doesnt fly off. 2.) Secured a set of 31's from my pops off his 3/4 ton chevy. meaty
3.) Had a (choice words) student at a college smash my driver's mirror. Found the pieces when I came out of class. Note said, "sorry" that was it.

I installed some Poor Man HB shock extentions so my suspension can droop a little better until I can afford to buy the Bilstein 5150s that I want. With the new X-Flex control arms, removal of my parking brake links and doing some grinding on my front shock mounts. The shocks are what is limiting my droop, now.

well today i picked up my 90 from the shop after having the coolant system upgrade. all new hoses, 3 core radiator, fan cluch,belts,etc..only cost me a hundred bucks for labor!! took a couple weeks to get the parts together though. also swapped the instrument cluster to get rid of the idiot lights a couple days ago. when i get home from work its time to put my new bumper lights on and determine what color primer to re paint the whole truck..i love primer..scratch it up and no worries!

knocked out some of the crushed passenger side quarter that the po did. also removed rear cargo carpet. A couple weekends ago, i climed a steep @$$ creek bank and the whole rear of the xj was in water. the padding was still soaked from 2 weeks ago.

Well, nothing today but, I spent all day yesterday washing mud out of every crack and crevis of my Jeep, then, knocking out as many of the dents from the Saturday Walker Valley run as I could. both putting in the dents and taking out the dents was fun!

Getting the valve stem replaced on my driver's side front tire, today. Demolished it in the rollover last Sat. and the tire won't take air. I also need to track down a driver's side mirror or just the glass for a 91-95 XJ. The plastc frame part snapped right back on after being ripped off but, the glass didn't fare quite as well. If the Senior Chief Petty Officer results come out and I've made it, I am definitely going 4wheeling to clebrate, this weekend.
