In Reno it was 50 degrees, warm enough that I got out the power washer to clean up the Jeep today. Didn't take the Jeep out but here is a shot while walking the dog about a mile from my house.

That's pretty country - the wife and I love the Southwest.

Reno is on the western edge of the Great Basin although the Juniper/sage brush terrain looks like the pic above all the way over to Utah and to the south in New Mexico and Arizona.

So the pic above does have the southwest look, at least in parts.

I made some progress last weekend. Of note, if you ever want to run a body lift donít get the poison spider rocker knockers. Iíll post later with how I had to modify the body lift to make it work. Iíll also have to modify my tire carrier to get it to work since it bolts to the frame and body.

So far the body lift and MML are in. Once the temps rise, I can paint the tummy tuck.

I got the savvy UA in.





Savvyís customer service is tops. One of the parts was manufactured out of spec. Iím currently making it work but will replace it with the better fitting part once it arrives.

I have a bit of engine vibration. I think itís due to the hard rubber used for the trans mount. Maybe the t-case is contacting the tub.

Still need to relocate the locker pumps...
