Switched over the Seats from girly purple to my monster truck, installed amp/speakers,

AND DROVE IT TO WORK YES!!!

Oh also had a lady say that i was "compensating for something."

My response was that yes I am but the reason it's a mild lift and not an 8" like her husbands, is because I have a medium sized ***** and not the small one her husband is packing.

James, you shouldn't have attacked her old man. Let me guess the lady who accused you of compensating was probably a fat, saggy boobed, mean, wretched thing that neither you nor would have hit even 8 months into a deployment.....LMAO

Looks pretty good Bobby. I'm going to have to address that area on my XJ. Sense installing the 33s and then wheeling, my tires are chewing up the rear part of the rear wheel wells.

I was thinking of staying the same hieght with 35's later. But after looking through the pics from today, 33's would probably rub.

I think I'm going to pull the aux. tranny cooler out of my son's 89 parts Jeep and put it in my 91 tomorrow. All this talk of trannys overheating has me concerned.

Be sure to leave the front DS off until you get your new rear gears....any accidental flip of the 4WD handle with those mismatched gears would be UUUUUUGLY!!

Put my driver's side front fender flare back on. I'll be doing some trimming on the rear wheel wells as soon as the holiday is over and I can get some cutting wheels. It's still looking like I'm going to have to install extended bumpstops. These tires are chewing the hell out of my wheel wells.

I got the gas tank switched over, with the pump for the FI.

Tried to put on the TC drop but I gotta figure out how I'm going to get it mounted. One side the studs are to short ( i know to get longer studs or pull them and go with bolts) but the other hole is a free spinner. There isn't a nut or stud in the frame. Any Ideas as to how to get a nut up in the frame that isn't going to just spin freely ?

Should be finishing the rear flares tonight. I'm going to cry when I smash the bushwackers.
