okay so its been a looooooong time since i've last given you (wait is anyone actually looking at this though?) an update. Regardless, a lot has gone down, well some good stuff anyways I think.
--Here we go---

I bought a RC Steering Stabilizer as well as a Rusty's Adj. Trac Bar which helped my steering immensely, and finally allowed my trac bar bolt to quit snapping and falling out and then causing my jeep to drive with little to response from the steering wheel like an old bronco or something.


Next, I tore out my old headliner! It was really easy to take down and looked pretty good underneath with only a few rust spots. Beforehand It was terrible and was sagging, and causing decaying roof to fall from the ceiling and cause me to go into a sneezing fit every time i hit a bump or opened the window. Unfortunately I don't have any before pics, but I know alot of you know what its like when it starts sagging and such, so here's some after pictures!


Okay, that's all of those pictures, sorry for so many but i kind of wanted to show off all my stickers haha, i decided against painting the ceiling black because i really liked how bright it was, and just put stickers on instead. Also if you look at the last picture in the center of the steering wheel, i found that little jeep emblem to fit in there to finally fill the empty hole i had there since i bought the jeep.

Then somewhere down the line, I got a call from my friend who had gotten his brother's 96 (maybe 98?) 2wd stock sport xj stuck in the mud somewhere back in the woods. He called me to come help get him out, but the path back to where he was was really narrow and rough, and i decided against making the trek back there. so then i called another friend who brought his 1976 CJ-7 Renegade w/ a v8 and 33 A/t's out there and easily made it back there and towed him out.

Unfortunately my jeep is backwards here, would of made a much better picture if it wasn't but oh well..

Here's the cleanup and damage assessment.

I gotta say it was a good day.

sorry about the pictures if they stay sideways, i rotated em on Photobucket, but they still don't show up different here, and the little CF editor rotator doesn't work for me either.

Finally back up to the present.
Today i just gave the Jeep a bath after some light wheeling the other day, and put on my new CF sticker! Plans for the rest of the day include cleaning the underbody real good and painting the differentials a blue-ish cobalt color, and maybe painting the trim again now that i finally got off the stupid grey stripe above it, as well as the racing stripes around the body. That was pretty much the most hateful job ever, peeling old stickers off with a razorblade for two hours...

yeah I probably could have made it, but for whatever reason I just wasn't feeling confident at the time, partly because i would of had to pass through the area that i got stuck the first time at, which you can see in the pictures i put up on i think page 2, funny that we both got stuck on the same trail though. But if the CJ hadn't come into the picture i would of gone for it for sure.

Good lookin build. You made a much better choice with the XJ over a tahoa and in a set of those earlier pics you had some silver flares and I thought they looked sharp on the jeep shouldve left them on.

Haha Definitely not a tar heel. The sky blue idea came from another white jeep i saw on here, and i thought the color looked good with the white and black color scheme of the jeep. But the paint i ended up buying for it is actually a slightly darker blue, so hopefully no one else will mistake it for that correlation again haha.
This is it.

Yeah I love my xj, though i don't think i'd mind having a 2d Tahoe sometime in the future, as long as i've still got my trusty xj as a trail rider... But anyways as far as the flares go, i just didn't like their silver color. My Jeep started out entirely white/grey/chrome, and i'm in the process of making it a more White with Flat Black and a few chrome accents. And of course the Blue items underneath. But eventually i'm going to trim whats left of the flares bracketry and prepare for some black bushwacker flat flares, and gain tire clearance at the same time.

Like These.


As soon as i have the money that is..

good job so far. looks good.
I love the name, and I had to comment to say that being 15 or whatever you are know, this was better written, and easier to read than 90% of whats on hear.
I really like to see that someone your age doing this can speak, spell and use grammar!
Thanks
