   R&R XJ water pump (* twice)
   R&R drivers side window regulator in the WJ
   Installed 180˚ Thermostat, in the XJ, to add a little more fuel to go along with the Hypertech programing  :o
   Back flushed Radiator and Heater Core
   R&R Spark Plugs and Indexed them. Funny thing, number 1,3 and 5 plugs didn't need any washers, they were right on the money.  :)
   Drove my "all powerfull" XJ to the Sub Shop, cause I deserved it  ;D

   * Not enough gasket goo the first time and had a small leak. Took 831 hours to do it the first time and only 45 minutes the second  :(  (practice always improves skill)

   Tattoo 8)

I put the d-ring in the rear hitch, attached the pull strap and drove down our barely plowed road to pull out the nearly new Hummer H3 that had tried to turn off of the barely plowed road and onto an unplowed road... ::) ::)...she only made it 5 foot in.  Her husband and kids were trying to dig and push her out for about 30 minutes while I was snowblowing. 

I threw the KJ in 4lo and drove right up behind them...used the convienently placed D-ring on their bumper and pulled them out with one half hearted tug and then a real tug.

Loaded the snow blower onto the hitch basket and went to dig out my folks. On the way I got to do 3 recoveries! Honda SUV, Toyota Camry, and a 4wd Nissan p/up! I love the way this Rubicon goes in the snow! ;D

Too cool Mike! You gotta love those Jeeps.

I had one and a half recoveries today. One was a winch job the other was telling the driver what to do to get up the hill. ;D

Oh, I replaced a wiper blade on my rig too.

Used my winch for the first time pulling my friends car up my driveway (moderate incline). We didn't feel like shoveling, and I needed the practice learning how to use the winch.
