What did you do to/for your rig today?
Okay, truth be told, i stole this idea from anouther site i belong to. Just something fun to creat discussion and inform people how the world of your rig is. I realize we have the forums about rig builds, this is more for just the little things that we all tweak and fiddle with. Lets see how long we can keep this thread going.

I will start.

Today i unhooked all the rear break lines, removed the rear shocks, and and removed the u-bolts. I also ordered new shock boots, and payed my membership fees. lol

Today I let it relax in the drive way and didn't force it to start in cold weather.

My jeep wants a garage for Christmas next year.

RE: What did you do to/for your rig today?
well today I looked outside and thought about brushing the snow off the beast but nuh. Need to replace the "temporary" bolt in the 3rd link on the front diff before it becomes a permanent part. Quite lucky it didn't flip farther and do some damage, as the pinion angle was around 30deg and caster -10. It was UGLY jaw-dropping

RE: What did you do to/for your rig today?
i just got a buddy to send me a pic of my jeep from manitoba.. he was nice enough to clean the snow off it and air up the tires again.. no one damaged it yet.. *knock on wood* and seeing the poor jeep sitting so far away from me in the snow kinda made me sad today..lol.. time to find myself a flat deck trailer and go pick it up with the farm truck.. but need some funds..lol.. and need someone that knows someone to do a out of prov. safety..*wink wink*.. dont feel like having to tow it to every trail.. rather have insuarnce on it and drive it to point a to point b.

Got the rear diff back from being cleaned and degreased, primed it and put on a fresh coat of paint.

We had the original owner of the 74 F100 donar diff, over for lunch today. I showed him what became of his 9"and he was very impressed with the coil/long link replacement for the leaf springs.
