    I am new to the 100 series. Coming from the 40 forum OCD Bettle has a really successful, fun thread where we post a pic of wheeling, a fix, a new part, etc. for our trucks.

    It's neat to see the mix of projects, daily driving issues, weekend wheelin reports, etc.

    I thought the 100 forum could use one...

    I'll start...today I ordered an Iron Man 2 inch lift kit for my 99'.:clap:

    Nothing very exciting. I replaced the cabin air filters this weekend and removed the fan to ensure that there was no debris. Oh, I put gas in it!

    All of my efforts have been on the FJ62. I have a long list for that one!

    Great thread idea.

    Took it camping off road last weekend. Got some scratches and dirt/mud on it, filled it up with gas and then washed it today.

    Removed running boards, roof rack, rear spoiler, and fender flares. I have had my hundy for about 4 months, and I have to say I should have done this the weekend I bought it. It looks so much better without all of that "stuff".

    Removed the door sills, interior B-Pillar plastics, Front seat belts and grab handles and soaked and scrubbed them in Super Clean.

    Restored the UV damage on 2 Scepter MFCs.

    Lubed the driveshaft.

    Drove around some fireroads in the San Bernardino Mountains.

    Car wash today. It always seems to run smoother and have more power afterward.

    Tomorrow night I drop it off at the mechanic to hopefully get the misfire diagnosed and fixed.

    A little over 10 days ago, but still worthy......

    - Replaced rear shocks [fronts replaces a week before] OEM all round.
    - Installed Air Lift 1000
    - Replaced fluids in rear diff, transfer case, and front diff with Mobil 1 75-90.
    - Fresh Mobil 1 engine oil and Wix filter

    The new shocks changed everything. Truck drives like new again. Remarkable difference. Shocks getting old is like the frog getting boiled.
