Colli,

That Krylon Fusion paint is good stuff from what I've witnessesed. Hell, my entire CJ has a "shaker" can paint job  ;D
Cheep-N-Easy........The paint job, don't tread elsewhere  :-X

Went to the local Military Surplus store, and bought a 1952 Jerry Can, now all I need is a holder.

*EDIT*

I called my father in-law, since he has 3 old jeeps behind his house, and I asked him if he had a Jerry Can Holder, and he told me yes. He belives he has one that I can have. :D

Got the TJ back from my wife and ran it through the woods of Sullivan county in my pursuit of wild critters this past weekend.

Replaced the Cap and Rotor, replaced the passenger side rotor, replaced the front breaks. And replaced this sensor next to the TPS (don't no what the sensor is called)

broke a passenger side front wide trak D30 axle on my red CJ pulling old farm equipment out in preparation for a auction.





Other than that,  My jeep makes a better tractor than the tractor!

The "little" white YJ got new front rotors and pads today. Also found out that the clunking from last month's RC trip came from another exhaust system whack! Heat shield from the cat has now been removed, exhaust hangers re-bent, and all is good!

Front sway bar bushings were also removed and the rust cleaned off. A fresh coat of grease and reinstall has the bar moving freely now... it was a PITA trying to reconnect last time... should be easy now!

Heading to Rausch Creek on Sunday the 15th with some buddies from upstate NY. A couple are first timers, so we will be doing greens and easy blues. If anyone wants to join us, we'll be there at 9:00am Sunday. I can't run with the "Big Dogs" on Saturday, since my 31's won't get me over all of the black trails.... :-[

Installed my Gerry Can holder, and put my gas can in it. It wiggles a bit more then I like, so Im going to take weather stripping and put it on the holders lip to hold the can better.

Installed a new tie rod and drag link as well as all new ends. Aligned it and centered the wheel.

You can handle those blacks.. just add more skid plates LMAO.  I think if you are going to stick with those 31s we should just completly cover the bowttom of your jeep in custom metal skid. you can just slide over every obstacle lol.. Ive got the welder you bring the metal and beer lol
