Warmer weather this week allowed me to daily drive my Samurai. It reminds me I need to get a new top.

We moved a few weeks before all this quarantine started... got a decent space finally to work in the garage and planning a layout.

Anyone have any major regrets or wins as far as organization? I feel like I'm wasting corner space

Since craigslist started to charge $5 to list a car, the inventory has gone way down. Facebook marketplace is where the listings are.

I had a shop built 3 years ago.  30x36 on 6" slab plus 10x36 side shed over dirt.  I added warehouse racks that I picked up cheap on one wall.  After only 3 years, it's in near total disarray. :-(  At least I have been able to keep the piles of junk from creeping into the center section and I can still get two vehicles in there.

Yup! Iíve toyed with the idea of unfollowing all my friends and groups so that I only see the for sale listings. You canít Unfriend everyone because then the buyers and seller might not be comfortable doing business with you.

Spent 2 hours in the barn tonight moving junk around. Organizing and hanging lights. Need so many more lights!

I took the sami down the road about a mile. Getting a wobble in the front right wheel- need to figure that out.
I am also trying to "pretty" up the wiring in the engine bay. I have wires all over the place and i think making it look nice will actually make it easier to work on.

We're looking to move here in a couple weeks as well. Here in SD people are acting stupid, but there isn't much as far as the sickness, at least yet.

I am running Sprung under 3" lift with a drop pitman arm. I am thinking my tie rods may be toast so I was thinking of replacing them and potentially updating the steering. I don't wheel hard, mostly daily drive with light-medium offroading. Anyone have ideas on good products? I'm not sure if an OTT steering kit would be beneficial or a waste of money now. Anyone have ideas?

I saw that! Super beefy! Seems like it may be overkill but I have it on my short list. I see the trail Gear OTT kit everywhere and figure I could get it cheaper if I scrounge enough. Just don't know the fesability of running an OTT while still being sprung under.
Petroworks also makes a stock style one that uses the FJ80 tie rod ends as well.

Edit to add this:

My thought on why an OTT may be nice even with my sprung under- in conjunction with the drop pittman arm it should get that drag link pretty level. But I just don't know.
