Today, I washed out my 1.5 year old AEM dry flow filter. I was under the impression that oyu have to have the special cleaner to clean them. Called Dave at Northridge4x4, and he stated just put it in hot soapy water and use a bristle brush, rinse thoroughly, then air dry. WORKED GREAT!!

Removed the wheels and tires, so that I can have the 33's mounted tomorrow.  Installed the Teraflex Oil Pan Skid.

Saturday: Installed the 1.25" body lift.

Wednesday: Installed the 2.5" Rough Country lift with 2.2 shocks.

Will get pics after the new shoes are on it, so that we will have the before and after shots!

washed all the mud off from monkey creek today, removed the hard top, getting read to redo the braking system, transfer case issues, fuel cell placement, and built a tool box/shelf system in the back... yay!

I think I broke the drive shaft on the TJ yesterday.  Whatever that large weighted ring is on the TC end of the shaft, it came off and bangs around now.
