Jeep #18: These Lights are the Best

Jeep #18: Into the Great Outdoors

Jeep #18: April 24, 2009

A date which will live in infamy.

Jeep #18: Now Spring is Really Here

Well now that weekend winter is apparently over and the weather is back to 70 degrees, here’s a picture.


The bolts holding the winch on have already oxidized, which I think is absolutely ridiculous. I’ll have to find new bolts that can endure more than 12 hours of moisture, I guess.

Also, the hydraulic controls for my clutch died, so I’ll have to take care of that before I get the steps on. Not that I’m, complaining. Since I bought the car I’ve only had to spend $12 in parts to keep it running smoothly. Not bad for a 20-year old car, eh?

Jeep #18: Light Bar Installed

I have decided not to do the go-lights, simply because they cost about $250-$300 each, and there are four of them. Add that to my hesitation of putting anything that can be easily unbolted and walked away with, and no fucking way. I’m already terrified about someone stealing my winch, to the point of asking a buddy to leave tacks of weld on the bolts once I get it on. I currently have two light bars, the one you see in the pictures will have lights attached to it, and the other will just be a bare-bones bar like in the opening scenes. The one in the pictures is a little taller than I’d like it to be, but from my best estimates it is the same height as those in the movie.

AH-HAHAHAHAHAH!

One step closer…

Jeep #18: Breaking in the Soft Top

Rained all day today, finally an excuse to snap on the soft top and test it out. 

And of course we had to go puddle-hunting! The pictures didn’t turn out too well, unfortunately.

Bought a pair of ATV winches from Harbor Freight to see if they were about the right size… nope, way too small. I am now on the hunt amongst the Colorado 4×4 community for a broken or cheap new-condition winch, uphill struggle I know. Logan’s uncle apparently has a smallish one that might fit the bill. I won’t find out until tomorrow, though.
