Wouldn't be a long weekend if I didn't do something on the #Jeep. I attacked the latches on my old CJ soft doors. I fabbed up some adapters on the TJ to allow the doors to latch properly. They aren't a 100% fit, but they seal well enough to keep the rain out. Jeep is officially in summer mode. Now I just need some summer. Pretty good, considering they were for an early CJ with the old latches against the tub and not a striker pin. Goes to show how little Jeeps changed from CJ7's up to TJ's

I finally got around to trying out my Emergency Top on the #Jeep  I wish I knew about these 20 years ago when I first started Jeeping.

Nothing quite like rotted out body mounts on a #Jeep  TJ to give you something to do.

Consts. Sassa Sljivo and Matthew Saris of +Toronto Police Service 22 Division. I sincerely hope that if a time ever comes that my "artistic" son needs help from the police, it is not from you. I'm not letting your behaviour jade my impression of the Toronto Police Service, or of any Police Officer. I will still teach my son to respect and trust Police Officers in the hope that if he does need help, it's from Officers that return the respect he deserves as a person.

Finally had a few minutes to get the oil changed in the #Jeep . Only 6 months late. Being said, I use Royal Purple and a 12000km rated synthetic filter from Fram, and I only put 5000km (give or take) on the Jeep last year. Also got switched over to "Summer Mode" and my beat up old soft top is now back on.

Posting this one back up again. The tire on my #Jeep  has not lost a PSI of air since I beat it into submission.

Quick write up complete with video of me using the AME 51025 to replace a valve stem on my perpetually leaking #Jeep  tire. Pretty sure I fixed it this time.

I'll have a full blog update in a couple days, once I've had a chance to test this out on my #Jeep and it's currently leaking valve stem. Here's a YouTube video of someone using it... shows promise, and may end up in the trail tool kit https://youtu.be/sX3F0ptIefU

Soapbox time. The R-Word. You know the one I'm talking about. The one we (yes I was just as guilty 30 years ago) used on the school yard as kids. The one still used by people to describe anything "stupid". Well, stop using it, please. Times change, and it's considered a derogatory term, especially to those with intellectual abilities. I'm gonna cut you off at your "Medical Term" argument. First off, you ain't a doctor, and secondly, if you are, you aren't using the word anymore. Doctors used to suggest bloodletting to cure disease, they stopped doing that too. There are days when I feel ashamed of my own non-confrontational nature and I let the word slide around me. Online, at work, just in general. That's going to stop. I'm not going to call people out in public, but I will get over myself and start having the side conversations. So if you hear from me, I'm not attacking you, I'm simply spreading the word that there is #nogoodway /end soapbox
