    Yes, my comment is in just as well. I do like to remind the solid front axle folks "yes, your solid axle might be better for rock crawling, but IFS is better for pretty much everything else."

    Detailed the Rene. Here are the pics (before and after!).
    Used Meguire's Super soap, then clayed it with some $13 amazon clay mitt (worked great!), then polish with a blue pad and Meguire's Ultimate Polish. Topped it off with DG 111/601 mixed with a black pad.

    Wow HJ's detailing is excellent!
    I do believe you need sunglasses to even think of looking at it! ;)

    Took my dog for one last Jeep ride.
    To the vet.
    She had complete kidney failure.
    Is a sad day at the Gyro household today.

    Very sorry to hear that. No matter the circumstances, you are never really "ready" for that... :(

    My KJ had to serve that roll, it's never a good thing when you lose a member of the family.

    There is a clay towel I've been itching to try out and see if it's any good. I've heard a lot of positive feedback, I may try that and then a clay mitt to see how they compare.

    I don’t know if there’s a comparable thread in the KK section, so here we go.

    AtTheHelm’s front recovery bar is back from the powder coater and back on!

    Front bumper cover had to come off.

    This time I’m using stainless hardware.

    And done. Love the look. ATH hasn’t made these in a long time so I’m glad I snagged one back in the day.

    That... is a nice looking piece.
    And boy does that front crash bar look awfully similar to the one on a KJ.

    I threw a bow and pack in it. Didn't get to toss a deer in, though... Next time.

    well, I was thinking about it while getting the color coat on the wheels, that for what i've spent so far on stripper, wire wheels, a burned out drill, cleaning alcohol, primer, paint, and of course time, it might have been cheaper to just buy new wheels along with the tires.

    I mean, for ~$830...
