I decided to make a build thread to document my Jeep.
Forest Green Pearl Luggage Rack and Running Boards
Bought the Jeep on March 7th 2009 with 100783 miles on it.
I noticed a small leak in front of the Transfer Case, first order of business was, Plugs, Wires, Cap, Rotor, Oil for trans and Transfer Case.
I started with 80/90w lucas gear oil, with trans leak in the trans. that was way to thick, to shift and it also eats the syncros i found out after I put it in.
2 days later i I drained the gear oil to use for the front diff later.
Filled trans with Penzsoil Syncromesh and Lucas Trans Stop Leak.
New Seats. Stock Sport Seats Suck
Replaced them with this Set of Recaros out od a Saturn Ion. they do not Bolt in and required about 4 hours of test fitting and making them work. i made brackets out od square stock and flat stock. These are the biggest improvement i could imagine, the ride is improved because i dont have to brace my self when cornering.Seat Install thread
I painted the side trim with plastic rust oleum paint matt black.
Now I found my leak it is in the gusset for the mount on the trans. no sealer or anything else will fix it. I drained the trans and JB welded the case, i stopped 75% of the leak, so i am going to redo it. I also have a spare AX15 that i will use if I have to. but since the trans shifts fine I will try to fix it once more. With a putty instead of JB Weld.
you can see the patch i tried.
I found a set of BFG ATs on craigslist for cheap, so i ponced and put them on the stock rims. 30x9.5x15 60% tread left
