New battery installed
Had to trim some more in the front (really need to push the front axle forward about 2 inches)
Cleaned and a ton of paint correction that needed to be done. Still need to do more but that will wait for another weekend
and rebadged it with decals





So you're coming to the CRAWL this year right?

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I did get out to Jeep Beach this weekend and had a little fun on the course they set up. But even before I got to play in the rocks my steering had gone out.. not sure if it's the pump or the gear box. but I am leaning towards the box at this point.

But it was good to get back into the crawling.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Went with Cottontail to Turkey Bay OHV and helped clean up trail litter. This was my son's first trip off road. He's 4. Did a little wheeling while we were out there.

I am here to let you all know - that kid DOES NOT LIKE litterbugs! And, even after 5 hours in the car with me, he still can't remember my name! But he's a cool little dude.

Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I went to sell some scrap metal. I ended up at CFC since Ivy Bluff was closed. It gave me a chance to look over the XJís and ZJís they had in the yard. I didnít find anything I was looking for but I wanted these.

Gold snowflake wheels on a 1996 Grand Cherokee Unlimited. Only one problem......there were only 3 of them. But I have a lead on another set.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Had to get into my storage unit this morning to get some things out. The ZJ is stored in that unit. I hadn't taken time to even sit in it since I parked her there last June. I moved some crap out of the way and climbed behind the wheel. Felt comfortable like putting on an old pair of boots.

On the XJ, I only have about an inch of movement needed on the A-pillar to be able to get a windshield back in her. I drove it on the street to a repair shop about 1000 yards from the storage unit, but they are a corporate shop and they aren't allowed to do the repair I need due to insurance and warranties and they wanted to replace the entire roof. They were nice enough to give me names of 3 mom and pop shops that would likely take on the job. I need to schedule a vacation day and borrow a trailer and take it to a few places (and fill up the tires, and probably take it though a car wash)

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I'm back. Just picked this little gem up. 2000 Limited. 177,000 miles. Everything seems to work fine except the passenger side window and the A/C. Needs some cleaning and fluid changes. PO had some goofy amp set up in the truck that I need to get rid of. It was hit in the drivers front door by a drunk driver. Not badly. I spent some time today on it and it's back in shape. Eventually I could pull the door off Annie and put it on the new truck, but not in a hurry for that.

I'll drive it like it is for awhile and start the build eventually.

Looking forward to running errands in a Jeep that gets more than 12 MPG. Yeah, Commander, I'm talking about you...

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I haven't come up with a name for the new Jeep yet, but the build will be titled: Project Doppleganger.

The plan is to basically clone my wrecked truck visually. Will look at going long arm instead of short arm. Otherwise, nothing too much more extreme.

Glad to see you come to your senses! Nice snag!

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I'm not sure my senses were ever completely gone. The idea of fixing Annie had merit, and I'd still be pursuing that option, had I not stumbled onto this one.
