I’ve neglected “Sara” (my jeep for those that don’t know) for awhile now and it’s time to show her some love. I ordered an oil pan skid plate and since shipping was free, I went ahead and ordered a steering box skid plate as well. When hitting the trail, you can’t have too much armor.
I’ve been wanting to go to 35″ tires for awhile now for the additional clearance, but needed to upgrade some parts to handle the larger tires first. This included the chromoly shafts that I put in my front axle last month, and I also need to modify my fenders to make room for the tires during articulation. I can accomplish this via “flat” fenders, which opens up the wheel wells. I lucked up and found the fenders I’ve been eyeballing for a great price (used) and hope to get them installed on Saturday.
I just had a thought, I should start calling my Jeep the Bionic woman, since all I do is spend money to upgrade her. Oh well, she’s going under the knife this week, but she’ll come out much stronger and maybe even a tad bit prettier.
