Hadn't been on for a bit due to the Irma and getting things back to normal. She sure couldn't make up her mind on where she wanted to go and took us for a ride. Luckily all safe and no read damage, just a long week with no power but for the most part didn't have any issues getting gas. Stations would run out but never had an issue finding it when I needed to.

Glad to hear you came though it mostly okay. Been a crazy year for tropical weather. I have two of my girls on the East coast for college or grad school and thought one or more of the last storms might hit the area like Sandy did.

Gas is mostly back to normal here. I am still uneasy below half a tank though. And new gas cans are terrible!

Finally made a few more changes. I was having trouble keeping the tires balanced when I rotated them. Mechanic who repaced my H2 transmission shift linkage (the second time) pointed out the old date codes and cracking on teh tires, which otherwise had plenty of tread, and suggested the shocks at 65,000 might ned replacing. So, it seemed time to make some changes...

Just snapped some pictures from a parking lot a mile or so from where I picked it up. Will get some better pictures soon.

Added Poison Spyder Ricochet Rockers and some righteous 81-81 Renegade graphics.

Thank you sir! The guy working on my Jeep said he and his neighbor/cousin were talking about it, and he said it will either make it or break it. I was very pleased with how it came out. Still real glad I went with the white wheels too. Next up, probably new leather seat covers. The mechanic also said if I want to go full CJ on it, I should paint the top nutmeg...
