Back in the (Jeep) Game!


Glad to say, I am back working on the 1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

I have had three screws that were rusted, stripped and just wouldn’t come out for me. I tried three different techniques and I just couldn’t get them to come out. This caused me to be stuck and I couldn’t make any progress on my project.

As a result, I did nothing. I let the Jeep sit for three to four weeks. I put the battery tender on and spent my time on my other passion, saltwater fishing.

For those that know me, I have to have something to keep my mind active all of the time. I am happy to sit around and relax, but I have to have something for my mind to work through. Because of this, I spent almost every night over the last month making offshore fishing lures.

Now I have all of the lures I will need for this season.

(These pictures are just the ones I am willing to show. My super secret lures I didn’t share  😆 )

So…

With pretty weather and no family plans, I spent the weekend tackling projects on the Jeep.

As for those PITA screws that wouldn’t come out…

I went to my local shop and asked for help. I had hoped there was an easy fix, but it wasn’t. The combination of PB Blaster and brute force is what finally got them out. It even broke the guys screwdriver!

I happily handed the guy a $20 and said thanks.

Hopefully, I will have some new posts on the blog later this week. I am still motivated to be out in the garage, so I am going to take the time to do the work and write about it later, but hopefully not too much later! Ha

These three photos give you a hint about the projects I am working on for the Jeep.

That’s it for this update, but just letting you know I am “back in the game“.

I’m ready to get my hands dirty and get the Jeep looking it’s best. It already drives amazing.

Until the next post my friends!

I've had a passion for four-wheel-drive vehicles since I was a kid riding in the back seat of my Grandfather's Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I have owned a lot of vehicles over the years. They each have their pros and cons and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you so you can find the vehicle that's just right for your needs.
