No more jeeping, wife cut me off!
Yep, no more jeeping for me until the Scrambler is done. Clear and concise directive, no wheeling the TJ anymore. It might have something to do with the 3 dents I put in it yesterday, previously it was dent free after 4 years of wheeling, on some pretty hard trails. All 3 are in the front, must have hit some tree branches. There is one in the passenger's healight bucket, that broke the ring, dented the bucket, and dislodged the headlight assembly. The other 2 are in the front fenders, right on the front of each, hard dents to get out.
There are 4 good things that came out of it though.
1) I get to build the mother of all brush guards for it.
2) I have Carte Blanche on the Scrambler, "GET IT DONE" she says.
3) We get to pick up another vehicle, it'll probably be a little Zuki for her, but I get to build that too. It'll be ONLY for wheeling.
4) I never got stuck the whole day, there is only one other person that can say that, and he's locked at both ends.
Oh well, live and learn. The dents were bound to happen, but it's her pride anad joy, so she's a little disappointed. She was in the jeep ahead of me the whole time, and I don't know what I could have hit. We didn't notice them until we got out of the woods.
