    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.
