Our 3rd WT is home/WHOOOHOOO!/Pic's

First off, a big thanks to Chris aka WideTrack. He has taken very good care of this rig and it shows. And Chris, we keep our promise's. You forever and always, have permanent visatation/driving privilidges.

Bill is still bouncing off the walls around here and we are beat. Aside from picking up the WT today, we also sold our CJ on E-Bay last Sunday. The new owner drove in from Kansas City today to pick it up, so it has kinda been musical Jeeps around here.

Anyway, just a few pic's.



Started detailing when we got it home. The paint is more oxidized than I thought, but I really think after a couple more sessions of elbow grease and polish, it'll buff out even more.

What a whirl wind day! Start with a dog obedience class, pick up the Chero, sell the Cj, then get busy cleanin.....

As for the grill, I am wanting to change to a razor. The pig that is on it right now has a major crack in the top center.

We use Mequiers Wax. This is their NXT. Expensive but well worth it.

So far, the plans for the rig are as follows::
4 or 6" BDS suspension lift
new tires & rims (not sure yet which but def. 33's)
Ordered cherokee stripe for the middle of the doors & tailgate.
Thinking of converting the rear window to a manual crank if I can find
one.

That ought to be enough to get us through the next 2 weeks.

J/K about the tranny fluid! Thanks for the info.

Is that a touch of snow in the foreground in the "before" pic?

Very nice Janie. It appears to be an 80. I guess you got that 208 t/c you have been looking for.
