Preasure washed the dirt off the under side and out of the frame from the Dec. RC ride. The other day I pulled the rear corner out (dent from tree :o) and replaced the tail light.

The little white YJ and the Warn M8000 winch recovered a big a$$ Ford expedition last night from some greasy mud.  ;D

Put a new battery in.  Old one had 500 CCAs, this one has 770.  Read that XJs should have one rated at least 550.  Did a lot of research and found one at the Evil Empire for $75 that is supposed to be just as good as some of the more expensive ones that I was looking at previously.   8)

Yep, good ole WMT.  I figure that it's prudent of me to shop there since I own their stock.  ;)

Took a long drive today to treat this battery better than the last one.  It was a nice day for that!  8)

Adam, when I stayed in FL, I shopped in the Homestead Wal-Mart.  Guys were walking inside w/o shirts, women and kids were walking around in bathing suits, dogs were being pushed around in shopping carts.  I felt like an elitist because I had pants on!  :D

Colli,

Nice touch!  I like the BDS cut-outs!
