So I just bought this Max Fueler deal. It was pretty cheap, and knowing my luck it probably won't work, but I'm going to give it a try, I have a work related trip coming up this week that is 4 hours round trip, so I should have a pretty accurate gauge if it works.
Well the verdict is still out after a week of this device installed. I'll update in probably another week on that.
On a side note, the mail delivered a fun new accessory for the Libby!
My new-used Skid Row Transfer Case skid came yesterday from a fellow L.O.S.T. member! I got a rubberized coating on it today and now all I have to do is get the hardware and install it!
Now just some pics of the dogs for my LOST JEEPers!
So Today someone just about clipped my wife while she was putting my son in his car seat. Just missed my wife and over exteneded the rear door hinges crumpling the rear door and pinching the front door shut. Here is the end result.
Here is the door once I forced the hinges back closed.
This is all the farther I can now open my rear door.
You can see on the bottom corner of the door how the cavalier pushed the corner up and away.
It pulled all but two of the tabs off of the fender flare and cracked it here and seriously scrapped it on the bottom. This is going to be the cheapest part of the fix.
I'm just glad that my wife and son were not hurt and I can't believe that she didn't even see the door was open.
New Purchase! I now have a trailer hitch and recovery point in the rear!:
The Package that I picked up today:
The other little packages I picked up with it :):

The sunset while I was working on installing the hitch and wiring:
Finally finished it and managed to get the after pics:
Close Up ;)
And I'll probably redo where the wiring runs after this weekend. We'll be hauling a boat this weekend and I'll wiring it whichever place I think works best.
Plug and Play wiring was a breeze and the install for the hitch was pretty simple as long as I tapped out the bolt holes first.
I am close to finishing my custom made grill inserts, I kind of like the aluminum look, but I think all Black might look more menacing!
Teaching him young! :)
and yes, he was EXTREMELY TIRED IN THIS PIC! haha
So, after an informal poll on LOSTJEEPS I decided to go with my first more daring modification, I decided to paint the inserts and the grill, well, more like coat them. I have the first coating of lining installed on the grill and custom grill inserts. Not installed yet.

So after a month of caring for my sick wife, I'm finally able to upload new photos!
So here are a couple more during the process of making my new grill inserts:

A little further away:
After a quite a bit of time without my fuel filler door, I finally decided to bedline the area so it didn't stick out so much (since the plastic was all faded). So...
Also rebedlined my grille, then bedlined a couple other things up front (Fender flares & bumper) :)
And my project for my lunch hour: (Getting a load of mulch and putting my hitch to good use!)
A pretty good size pile of mulch fits in that seemingly small trailer!
