    Had to break down and...

    I hear you. We're really making a big push to get out and camp this summer. We spent last summer buying and gathering gear, this summer we're dead set on using it.

    Thanks Everyone!

    I guess the next thing I'll move on is the front bumper project.

    I forgot to give you all an update on the rear bumper reverse lights! I got these done before I went to Moab.

    I'll try to catch you all up. I didn't really do much to the Samurai since the last post. I installed a new oxygen sensor since it was supposed to be replaced at 80k and this engine had 140k when I...
