Cool. Not sure yet as to our plans yet, Kelsey. We'll probably be headed there Saturday A.M., though.

Back from paint. It looks good in this light, but will need to go back to the body shop after Jeep Blessing this weekend, as they didn't blend the color into the sides of the Jeep as I was told they would. In certain light, it stands out like a sore thumb. It'll get fixed, though.

I had to leave the shop early tonight, though, as everythaing I touched seemed to turn into a giant, steaming pile. I hate days like this. I'll try again tomorrow.

Looks good. Unfortunately, apparently silver is a pita to blend.

That said, is this going to be restricted to silver lake for the first 10 years?

Cleaned up, and ready for the Jeep Blessing. I also got to drive my LJ for the first time today in over a year...felt GREAT!!!


Rocker guards & corner guards are now installed, just in time for the Jeep Blessing.


B-I-G Warn 8274 winch installed.


I'm very happy with the way the painted aluminum corner guards turned out. Subtle, with a silent "b". The stock rear bumper went back until the Rokmen rear bumper arrives.

I love the build and how clean it is, since it is going to the body shop and you being so meticulous (not a bad thing at all) I think filling in the seam between the doors and fenders (where it used to meet the top of the fenders) would really clean it up. It just looks so out of place with the highline kit.

Just something that jumped out at me, having said that I hate you for having such a beautiful work of art

Another big thanks to RockSolid Performance for getting my Jeep drivable for the 2012 Jeep Blessing. Here are a few shots from the day yesterday.


On the Intermediate course with my buddy Joel.


Clearly, I'm not overly excited about driving my Jeep after a year of jack-stand wheeling.


Sand pit of death...or maybe I'm just being melotic.


Exiting the concrete tunnel.


...and these were the rocks I wasn't quite (mentally) prepared to tackle (in my vehicle) yet. Gordon from RockSolid was nice enough to run me through the "Chadsville" section of the course a couple times in his green Jeep. VERY fun! Here's Patti driving the RockSolid buggy through part of Chadsville.
