Default "The Creeper"

So, I traded a dirt jump mtn bike that I had about $850 in for a boat, trailer, motor, new marine battery, and trolling motor that a guy was selling for $1400, I kept the trolling motor and battery and traded the rest for a 2004 Suzuki Z400 Quad, then I traded that for the XJ...

So, going to catch every one up. I gator guarded the outside, that stuff is awesome! Then went riding with some friends, and I knocked my connection to the vac motor off and lost 4wd. So, I got stuck and pulled out by a wrongler
The passenger floor filled up with water and was nasty any ways so I tore it out. I have replaced the rear hatch lift arms and I got 2 racing swats for $30 thanks to CL! Also picked up a Thule gutter rack system for $50! And then I sanded and sanded and rattle can painted the top, spray can can be nice with proper prep work!

Went wheeling evening after painting, and revenged the hole I got stuck in last time! Hit it more to the right and I could have done it in 2wd! Today I worked out a deal with a guy on CL to trade my wheels and tires, Cragar d windows 15x10 with 33-12.5 buckshot mudders and $100 for his 18x9 XD Rockstars with 275/65R18 maxxis buckshot mxts both of have pretty much new wheels and tires! Doing the trade tomorrow!!!

Good luck with the Rockstars. They are known for breaking but they are a wicked looking wheel!

I have a 4.5 RC lift. So the guy with the Rockstars decided to want my wheels and tires and $250! I don't know if I'm going to get them anymore, I did not know they were know for breaking.
Today, I'll be welding in some patches on drivers side floor and making a little more tire room on my fenders.

So, I'm keeping the steel wheel since this is a "Wheeler." Yesterday, made some room for my wheels to travel, I'll get pic of that tomorrow. And tonight I finished herculining the interior!! I highly recommend herculiner I used gator guard on the outside and I like the herculiner a lot more went on easy and laid thicker and seems to go further. Next step, is going to be bumpers.

Herculiner us the best. Not too pricey for a decent quality product and there always seems to be a sale to help with the cost.
