    Picked up the 31s Thursday evening, unusual to see Cherokee modulars with round holes rather than 'D' slot mods. Friday I took a trip to the local tyre shop and handed over some beer tokens in exchange for fitting and balancing. I've 30mm spacers fitted,and there's a bit of offset on the rims, upshot is I'm showing a bit more rubber than before.
    The 31s mean I have to sort the tired lift out now.

    If you haven't already, check the tire pressure first.

    They keep the worst off the screen where they're fitted, and I didn't have the bull bar fitted at the time. I saved a fortune as I took a trip to the local DIY outlet and bought some galvanised steel wire, fence tensioners, and U bolt wire clamps, then made them up to suit. The only downside is you have to loosen and remove from the front clips to open the hood.

    Chromed out my taillights, why? Because they were boring and ugly and because I can. I feel like they're all better now lol also replaced my headlights with 2x brighter stocks and they have gotten people so pissed because they look like high beams (even though they are aimed correctly) that they flip me off and I'm like "You want high beams? Here! Have some random instant daylight!" and pump the high beams at them and they turn down a side road real quick cause they know they just got punked.

    Got a letter from HOA saying i couldn't park it in the grass just off the driveway. I've been rolling it out in the street and winching it back into place when I need to move it. Still trying to figure out ASD issues. Had one "mechanic" basically give up on it so that makes feel a little better. Although if it were something simple, it would be fixed by now.

    So I haven't done anything with the Jeep but I had a friend check it out because my wife said it wouldn't start. My buddy is a great mechanic and has diagnosed it as a bad coil or crank position sensor. It's been sitting in the garage on a trickle charger for a few months while I've been overseas. All I know right now is that it doesn't start.

    Over the weekend I filled the spot welds that pulled out of the unibody where the track bar ripped away from. Filled a couple cracks, got my filler template cut, and did a LOT of grinding. Hours of work, and not much to show for it.
    The fun part is trying to do sheet metal welding with 240v harbor freight welder.
