new driveshaft in and ready to go even fixed some odd ball noises from under the jeep,   and the wife decided the chrome hitch ball was too shiny and tried to cover it with some black paint, unfortunately it was from some elses door.  ::)

Not today, but I ordered bead locking rims last week. Fired the CJ up and have her off the trailer. Broke the lug nuts loose and am waiting for the rims to arrive then I'll haul the tires to Adventurous 4x4 in Hagerstown, MD to have them mounted. I'm getting back on the trail this year.

Fixed the exhaust system (again) on the YJ so I can get back on the trails!  ;D

Cut 3" off the end of the tail pipe so (hopefully) I won't keep mashing it. Also have re-welded the stainless steel muffler inlet and outlet pipes so it will pass PA inspection.

  Having a new DS made at Quigley's, the center section (bowl or whatever) of the Double Cardon was REALLY bad. Fixing it was about $50 less then a new one soooooo...

  Also have Rusty's Steering Conversion Tie Rod kit. I already had one side of my (stock) Tie Rod ""Flipped"", I'll Flip the other side and install this on the Top Sides of my Knuckles, then no more (hopefully) dealings with Tie Rod end troubles. Flip Insert   is from Goferit Products  goferitoffroad.com/products.htm   I'll have to get this stuff done soon... Hmmmmm Blacks All Day  ;D

Well...
Having ordered five Racline Bead Locking Rims we mounted up four on Saturday. One was the wrong color  >:(...going back
Once I got home with them in the back of my truck two of the four were leaking air around the ring  >:( >:(

So, I had to break those two down...40 bolts each...to have them returned as well.  >:( >:( >:(
Randy and I will get it worked out with Raceline...Should have three rims shipped this week at their cost.

Randy feels they were not machined correctly and I have to agree.
