Starting a new journal here, where they are supposed to be

So fun little update, it's been a few months since my last post. I frequently stalk the forums for information. Just wanted to give an update with what I've had done to Remington so far.

The frame was bent. Had that fixed and was surprised they didn't even notice it in the safety inspection.

Repairs Include:
- New Radiator
- New Clutch Fan
- New Outer Tie Rod End
- New Back Brake Pads + Rotors
- New Throttle Position Sensor
- New Valve Cover Gaskets
- New Rear U Joint
- New Front Wheel Bearings
- New Upper Ball Joint
- New Parking Brake Shoes
- New Front Hood Shocks
- Replaced Air Filter + Bulbs
- Full Synthetic Oil + Filter Change 12/20/17

Put in a new 900 CCA battery, got the tires rotated, changed the spark plugs, and had to replace an 02 sensor.

Now another 02 sensor is throwing an engine code but I need a whole new exhaust system. That I plan on getting done at the end of May. My exhaust is rattling, so it's time. Im just trying to cash flow as much as possible on a part time income.

I need new tires after that is done, and am looking at doing a full OME lift beforehand to get slightly bigger tires but I have no clue where to even begin with that. Also don't know if any shops would allow me to bring in the parts required and just have them do the labour. I'd love to do it myself but it's my DD and I'm not too keen on making it a learning experience.

Oooohhh and I'm really excited to say we had a last minute winter storm with about 3 feet of snow and Remington plowed through that heavy sticky shit with 0 issues. Im loving my KJ!

Here's my running list of things to be done to Remington. If you have any suggestions, feel free.

- New Exhaust System
- Fix Light Bar Cover
- Headlight Restoration
- Install Bluetooth Stereo (For my Chevelle + Five Finger Death Punch)
- Bedline Bumpers + Fender Flares
- Install New Fender Flare Clips
- Find A New Side Panel
- 2.5" OME Lift
- Bigger Tires
- ARB Bumper (Really hard to find in Canada send tips!)
- Custom Molded Floor Mats
- Body Work (Awkward Dents)
- Possible Exterior Bedline (I haven't Decided Yet)
- Fix Tow Hitch Electrical Support Housing

Voila. It's a long list that I may add to later, but for now - those are my plans.
