Post WOW it's been a while since I have been out on the Trail

So, I've been without my jeep for a while now.  I have put it off long enough.  I am getting ready to purchase a few parts. 
The bushing problem at the end of last year and the beginning of this year started the issues and then the wonderful shock break and through the gas tank happened.  OH WELL, Shit happens.  I am replacing all the bushings in the lower control arms and getting two new front control arms.  I will be replacing the upper control arms in the front and back.  Thanks to Bill Snyder for helping me with a few items last year and thanks to David Short for the return of the gas tank that Bill let me have.  I am also replacing the front Driveline because i bent the tube.  Most likely when Perry and I went out one time short after he installed his winch last year and I got hung up on a rock bigger than my jeep.  I was tabled on the rock.  HAAHAAHAA.  So Tom woods here I come.  My body damage will be covered up with Genright rocker panels and rear panels.  Thanks to Jason Case for the front bumper.  HOORAH.  My problem with the bumper is my lights won't fit properly.  OH darn, that means I have to get different type of lighting system.  HAAHAA, oh shoot, LED light bar by VisionX or Rigid.  I am getting a specialized bar.  It will be a combination of Flood/spot at 10wLED x 10-15" with maybe 10 lights on it.  Dang me should I say that I will be for sure putting on the winch.  Just haven't decided what I want.  Too many toys out there to play with.  I just might go with the standard Smittybuilt 10k w/ syn rope.  Or to Ebay and go after this Warn Competition winch that is up on auction.  It is a hard to find winch and it is worth the money.  It is used but who cares if it works it works for me.  So, I will leave it at that. 

I am hoping that everything will be here for the New Year's at the Sand Dunes. 
I will lewt you know more as I get the parts

Oh and A New Clutch for sure.
