To this!

Ok so it's not just the bumper. I also installed the missing aux fan, got a new o2 sensor, and the previous owner installed a new heater core. Tomorrow dual exhaust and a St. Patricks day parade.

The jeep just had dual flow master exhaust installed at a local shop and was part of a parade I would say that amounts to a good day.

Well the xj just completed a cross country adventure on the back of auto transport behind a uhaul. Only damage is a busted shock which will be replaced when I get rid of the shackles for 3 inch aal. I can't wait to take this thing out in CO.

I'm really going to miss this garage. The trails in Colorado make it worth it though.

The jeeps first taste of CO only a broken fender flare. Time for different wheel spacing and more lift in the rear.

The wheels on the XJ don't have the right off set not to rub and my budget tanked due to the new JK. It looks like I'll be cleaning up and painting the old stock rims with mud claws. The plus side I'm still going to remove the shackles and put a new leaf pack in this fall so it's getting a little love.
