Mine is ok to go as is, but I would really like to get this steel welded in:

But if not I will bring it as is.

Mine still had dirt on it from Moab.

-I've got a check engine light on that I'm not sure I'll address. Came on when pulling it off the trailer from Moab. Some kind of massive leak in the environmental systems of the gas tank evap.
-I want to take the pucks out of the front and get it realigned, apparently the move to a warn vr10 winch with synthetic line has lightened the front up enough that I think it sits too high. I have new bump stops to put in it if I lower it.
-My new metal cloak gas tank skid arrived the other day. 1.5 inches more for ground clearance...of course the gas tank is full. If I do the skid, I'll do a new fuel pump, just cause I'm already in there...might find the cause of the cel too...

RV and trailer should be good to go.

What has to be done?

Change the oil.
Fix exhaust.
Fix axle side steering stabilizer mount.
New air filter.

What should be done.

Change oil, diff, and maybe transmission/TC fluids.
Fix passenger side upper control arm mount. (Wasn't clocked in the correct position when it was fixed last time.)
Install Iron Man 4x4 Long Arm kit.
OTK Steering kit.
OTA Track Bar kit
New rear leafs.
Install the new tablet for GPS logging.
Replace the 10+ years old Pioneer HU with one that has BT. (The current one actually has BT, but you have to manually pair it every time.)

-Trailer needs 1 new tire

-Tow rig needs an oil change

-Jeep is good to go, may do new front shocks, rear bumps and a traction bar if I find motivation to work on it.

Pull the trans on the JK and replace the torque converter and also build a new rear bumper for our JK. The wife hates driving it with no rear bumper lol. If I don't do that, there will be no play time for the XJ...

Here is what I want to do to the XJ in the next few weeks:
Finally upgrade booster to a dual diaphragm booster along with rear disc brakes
Install the JCR OTK steering I got for Christmas
Reconfigure cargo area which may or may not include doing away with the bench seat
Relocate shocks through the floor with a hoop or cross bar
Upgrade gears, not sure if it is in the budget with everything else the wife and I are wanting to do this year

But if not I will bring it as is.

Well I am not gonna get the steel welded in.
Screw the rockers LOL.

My battery seems to have lost all of its juice during my extended stay on its side in Moab.

I installed this one for WF:

I wasn't happy with the way the factory hold down fit the battery, so bought and installed this from Rusty Offroad.

Other than no stickers included with the battery hold down(WTF Rusty), I am happy with it. Is it March yet?

Still haven't touched the jeep. Need to change fluids, throw on steering box brace and gas her up. Everything else isn't important. Like reenforcing my frame so it doesn't tear apart.

Usually. One year I built my steering and the test drive was to attica. I was under mine last night and remembered the tail pipe fell off in moab and the muffler is hanging down.

Did get it started up the other night but that's about it. It seemed to work ok out in moab last time we had it out so might not even screw with it and just run it. Still even has full tank of fuel in from moab.

Here’s my list! Getting close!!! I think I’m going to order some JCR rain rail roof brackets (or whatever they’re called) and maybe(?) build a roof rack before WF. We shall see!!!
