Painting the bare metal under the hinges. Also removed my Willy's 4 Wheel Drive sticker from the tailgate.

Crazy that it is bare under the hinges.  Makes no sense to me
From what I've learned, I think they attach the tailgate and hinges, then spray / paint the whole thing at once.

My Teraflex tailgate doesn't fully cover that area, so I wanted to paint and clear coat it to protect it before it gets bad.

I don’t blame you.  I have seen people do that and just reapply the stock hinges.  Just to protect the metal.

Drove it to my parents place in warrenton where it will stay for a while. A lot easier to do the axle swap here than at the townhouse.

Replaced the seat heater on the passenger side and put on a Bartact seat cover. Picture of caution to anyone running aftermarket seat heaters from eBay

After waiting months for the lift to come in due to COVID finally got it put on the JT.

Replaced a bent lower control arm; glad I caught it before attending Spring Fling at the Cove  :D

Pretty sure I saw a NOVA member's Jeep at OCD today, but I did not take a picture (it was so hot I was ready to leave  :8)...

For whatever reason, yeah.  Loaded up with blue loctite and they’re still tight after wheeling today.  I’m guessing it was bad thread locker from Adams or something.

I have another 2 hr dr tomorrow so I’ll go back to red if loose again.

Drove to Rehoboth and melted with my wife, my daughter, and my dog all panting the entire way because the AC only worked on speeds 1,2, and 3 and it was barely cool coming out of the vents. While there I replaced the fan switch and recharged the AC. The trip back, while packed in tight, was MUCH better.
