My idea of a perfect vacation is a road trip through beautiful country. To make it really fun, all that's needed is a modified vehicle, a few close friends, and some serious off-roading. Cole Quinnell - Editor, 4WOR, Dec 99

I just got done doing a bunch of front end changes with lighting, bumpers and some paint freshening.

On the "to-do"
-There is a leak up front. Need to find out if its a brake line or PS box. Then fix it
-About to pull the trigger on a steering upgrade or a lunch box for the front. Only hold up now is determining if I am keeping the TJ.
-Waited to long to go get my roof top from my folks place. Now I need to cross fingers for a decent day to drive it topless
-Planning on a heater core flush one of these days
-Oil change would be useful. I think its been about 2yrs....
-Was thinking my U-joints should be looked over. I have never touched them and Jeep is getting old
-May fix whatever is going on with the radio since nothing works.

Guess I should check driveshaft joints while im at it.

Pretty sure that leak is PS since the fluid is red. Haven't really given it a good look yet though.

Heater core flush this week at some point

Heat core flush DONE
Front Spartan DONE
Inner axle seals DONE
Outer axle seals DONE
Axle Ujoints DONE
Greased up everything DONE
New headlights DONE
Painted everything DONE
New upper door skins DONE
New half doors DONE
Radio swap DONE
Winch plate DONE
New Flag mount DONE

Firestone air bags DONE

Swept up the dead flies DONE

I think other than packing, thats about all I have planned. Noticed an exhaust manifold leak after all the things and stuff done this winter.
Guess I will keep the window cracked...
