Turned my Jeep into a contact truck to go help my buddy drop the diff from his mustang. He sheared off 2 bolts from the subframe.
He didn’t respect the HF impact and discovered he had really hammered on his subframe with it at one point; made me laugh because I warned him after his impact couldn’t even remove a lug nut that mine was a bit stronger. I thought it might have been a frivolous purchase since I had to hand torque all my control arms, but it continues to be awesome. No oil and pulled his spindle nuts off his half-shafts.

Spent the last week camping and fishing in the Eastern Sierras. Last night at a hotel on Mammoth Mountain for a shower and a meal.

Beautiful, where were those pictures taken? I'm heading down to Lone Pine in a few weeks and thinking of adding some time around Mammoth.

Wanting a hedge against Ida's potential effect on fuel deliveries, and the heavy rainfall forecasted for Wednesday, I filled six 20L NATO cans with ethanol-free gas. They fit just right back there.

OCD = color-coded hang tags to ID the octane. :)

I took it up on the same rock where I posted my older flex out photo. I was at 22° stock, and after the mods, I was up to 26° approaching the rock. I admit I wussed out, and didn't push my luck further. Maybe I took a slightly different line this time. Whatever. Anyway, the amount of clearance I have now is ridiculous.

Then I headed up to the place where I took my last batch of scenic photos. I wanted to take good pictures. I didn't have a spotter. I came really close to a catastrophic disaster, but even if I put a little starfish shaped grab mark in the driver's seat, I actually got that close to the edge of oblivion and back without any assistance. I confess I scared myself pretty good when I accidentally dropped off the front of that rock on the passenger side. I hadn't planned to go that far forward, but since I did, screw it, I got out and took pictures! :CWL: The photo doesn't show the perspective very well, but you can see how low my shadow is in comparison to the Jeep. When I climbed out of the thing, my rock rail was about even with my belly button. Seriously, I could barely climb back into the thing.

She really flexed out well though. (The steps are for the dog. She needs steps now to get in or out of the thing.)

Okay, I'm going to post the rest of my photos on the scenic photos thread.

I took Delivery of it and went straight from the dealer to pick up my 5-year-old from Kindergarten. Went from An Audi Q5 to this, and i'm MUCH happier already with the smiles per gallon. :)

OH, and I began the mods with a short antenna, and some "OS Bars" for the front/passenger!

Well not my Jeep yet, but my bud needed a new battery in his Jeep. He went with a battery from O'Rileys. A Super Start Platinum battery. 800 CCAs AMG battery. We decided on this battery from a recommendation from a different thread about batteries for JL Jeeps. There is almost 6,000 O'Rileys locations around the US and the battery has a 3 year replacement warranty.

Link to the battery that was bought

If you look close, there are four Jeeps in this pic. The neighbor's parents just showed up with their motorhome towing a Jeep. They are headed to Florida and passing through from Canada. They were surprised and how easy the boarder crossing was.

Went to Southern Four Wheel Drive Association's Teailfest and took the Know Your Rig course followed by a guided ride. Being the only stock sport we had a couple of challenging spots but Mike guided us through. Even got it up on 3 wheels at one point.

A few minutes from our 3 hours trail ride.
That just means for us sport owners , the driver skill has to be super sharp, you nailed it.
