    Last weekend on the 8th, I installed new 80w "Predator" LED headlamps from High Beam Offroad and a Smittybilt XRC 9,500 lb. winch. The 20 year old OEM battery terminals were beat, so I swapped them out for a pair of solid brass terminals as well.

    Then on Wednesday the 11th, I swapped the winch's OEM hook out with a unit from Ranger.

    Plastidipped the OEM MOAB wheels on the XJ this past weekend. We'll see how it holds up, but I do like the look.

    Headed down to explore East Matagorda Barrier Island on the Texas Coast this past weekend. Unique among Texas' barrier islands, East Matagorda Island is a 24 mile long stretch of sand that's open to exploration on the coastal and bay sides. All electronics, the winch, and the Jeep performed flawlessly. Every time I take this thing out, I'm impressed by it's reliability and off-road performance. Living in Texas, nothing is close-by, so it's great that this 20-year old Jeep is so reliable that I can daily-drive it to work everyday and then take it on adventures each weekend without a worry. - We even rescued an F350 who had come to assist, but ended up getting stuck himself.
