Default I did what to my Jeep today

So this place is dead compared to the "good old days" back when I was a young whipper snapper so we might as well attempt to get some traffic here.

Another board has a thread like this and it can be entertaining and motivating to get out and work on your junk.

So what did you do to your jeep or 4x4 today?

I won't discriminate if it's some other type of 4x4, the only jeep I have is a CJ5 carcase 1,800 miles away though I do have a Chevy truck "project" spread out through 2 some of it in my garage/ spare bedroom and some of it 8 hours away in another state that wants to be turned into a buggy.

Haven't done a darn thing to him since getting back from The Bash. Haven't even given him a bath.

I stole the Red Jeep back from my son today... He had it from before the Bash and after. The Found On Road Dead pickup has been repaired to a functional level (for now).

Nice to look out the window and see that rusting pile again.

Not today, but I like the idea of this thread.
I decided last week I was NEVER going to replace my radiator, so I paid a dude to do it for me.
Other than that, pricing shoes and looking for factory springs to lower the whore back closer to stock height.
Looking to vastly improve her road worthiness.

Good to hear Jim. Get that youngster down the road from you to work on his junk and we will make a Haspin trip.

I pounded studs out and got a chunk of tie rod off a flat top knuckle yesterday. My boss has 1/2 a dozen to mill/ drill for high steer so mine will go into the mix. I'm going to attempt to start working on junk again. Not sure if it's going to end up in my CJ5, my '87 1/2 ton chevy truggy, or some other pile. It'll be a year or so before I have the cash to actually think about wheeling.

I have 2 bead locks sitting under the bench at work, maybe i'll attempt to make some tig boogers after work tonight.
