    Not much new here. The XJ has been parked for most of the winter in an attempt to keep it clean. I caved last night though, and had to take it out to the store quick. The STT Pros did absolutely amazing! I may have to say screw it and just start driving it in the winter..... I only need it to last 5 more years lol.

    Im going to be ordering some of the rock slider "kickers" to weld onto the current sliders, so i can hopefully avoid taking another boulder to the door. And i ordered up some Delran door pins for the JL.

    I also passed my HAM exam last weekend, and picked up some equipment thanks to Xj Jake to help me along the way. I installed it in the truck for now, but this should aid in some communication when out on the trails

    Well I took the Xj out to an ice fishing tournament over the weekend. I sure miss driving this thing lol. I did notice that one of the front u-joints is letting go, and its clicking bad, so thats on my short list. It only does it in 4wd, and not in 2wd, and does it in a straight line at low speeds. Ill have to crawl under it and hope its not an axle joint. I have a spare Tom Woods front i can throw in if its just the driveshaft joint.

    I also ordered up some of the weld on rock slider rails from AJs Offroad. They said they should be out today, and hopefully ill have them by the weekend, then i can get going on those as well.

    Im also going to order up some black monstaliner, and do the bottom 1/4 of the doors, after i sand off the small surface rust that is starting to form. I want to eliminate it before it gets bad.

    I received my new rock slider kickers/steps last night. I couldnt help but mock them up right away... They look pretty good, and im glad I went with the 1.75" instead of the 1.25". Now i just need to order up some black monstaliner and get to welding!

    I took the ol Xj out the other day to clean it up and knock the dust off of it. I figured while I had it out, Id snap some pictures.*

    Im hoping to get those rock slider kickers welded on in the next few weeks.

    Well i finally got some new headlights for the XJ. I opted to just go with the standard Sylvania Silverstars. I also picked up the headlight harness upgrade. Im hoping to install it this weekend, and hopefully it makes driving at night a little more tolerable.

    Well I finally got around to welding up my rock slider "kickers". They turned out pretty decent, and should work well, and hopefully save me from taking another rock to the door.

    Well we got to do the Crawl for a Cure over the weekend. I drove 4 hours there, did some amazing wheeling for 2 days, and drove 4 hours home without a single issue. The new rock sliders did their job perfectly well too

    Ill be up there again in 3 weeks for the Iron Rock Offroad customer appreciation days, so that should be fun.
