Changed my front diff, rear diff, and tc fluids. Emptied and cleaned the catch can. Cleaned and reoiled my air filter. Quick detail of the engine bay. Washed the rig, polised the borla tips, and took it to my favorite spot and snapped some pictures. I think I spent more time with the jeep then I did with Stacy!!! LOL

Hehehe - get ready for all that to change once you get married, my friend! Great choice on the wedding band, BTW.

As for the Jeep, I let mine sunbathe while I sat on my ass all day yesterday and watched football...

Scared the hell out of an old lady in traffic when I pulled up next to her at a red light and then floored it when it turned green with my cutouts full open.

Don't have cutouts, but still loud enough to scare a beagle puppy that was walking with a young girl. It jumped in the air

Only other thing I did today was wipe brake dust off the rims. That's a daily ritual though.
