Drove the jeep home today from my sister's. Holy cow is this thing soft and tall, but it should be held together JUST enough to make it into the quarry this weekend.

Me too! The election ads are starting to go up at work and while they pay for costs at work including my pay, I hate them.

Been raining since yesterday since we left the Badlands. Can't wait to pick up my own trailer so I can stop renting and having to return sketchy trailers.

On the plus side, figured out the jeep a lot more, especially with the hand throttle and got to hang out with Rewster Sam and Chuck all morning. Then we found Wade and Rob over in the quarry, tooled around, and Chuck broke. Overall a great weekend, now just gotta make a new list and start cranking out some progress to get jeep ready for WF

That was a good day. Sucks we couldn't stay and camp. Me and Sam went to that jeep show afterwards, I challenged the hellcat gladiator to a burn out competition but he wasn't going for it, it was getting shipped out to the barret Jackson auction the next day or something like that.

Hmm.... Narrowing never crossed my mind. I did crunch that drivers turn signal on a tree, but I just didn't have time to finish the bumper before this trip. I have a new header panel and fenders to go on soon, this one was literally held on by 2 nuts and zip ties. Should be adding some tube this weekend with any luck

I've seen them, just seems like a bit more work than I want. I will be stretching the front a bit and doing TNT inner fenders.

Re: Important

23..24...25th im here. Cleaned the soda cans and water bottles out of the jeep yesterday from the last wheeling trip. Vacuumed the badlands dirt and some rust out of it and made a cardboard taillight that I hope I can transfer to scrap metal at work one of these days.
