I had some Hornsby's, it was great! I have had some Magner's lately too. I'm pretty sure I've had the Woodchuck but I'm not a connoisseur. I only have a couple drinks every couple of months these days.
Pear cider sounds interesting. More tart maybe?
Cheers and Happy New Year! Got the lucky sauerkraut and pork from a local BBQ truck that operates across the street from the Advance Auto I use most of the time, Ray-Ray's Hog Pit. Ray-Ray has a beard ponytail and smokes his meat in smokers he made from 50-gallon drums. He smokes it right there in the parking lot for 18 hours.
No pics today but the driveshaft is back in with the new paint and new u-joints. For historical reference my 1995 YJ had a 1330 u-joint *ONLY AT THE REAR DRIVESHAFT WHERE IT MEETS THE REAR DIFF*. All of the other driveshaft u-joints were 1310s front and rear. Since I bought 3 1330 u-joints I had to go back *AGAIN* and get 1310 1-0153 u-joints for where the rear driveshaft meets the transfer case, and also both front driveshaft u-joints. I actually crawled under the Jeep with the trouble light and held up the 1310/1330 combo joint to visually verify which they were.
Also I removed the rear license plate flip-down gas filler door thing. I've always thought it was ugly, and since I bent the **** out of it on the trail it looked real junky. I cleaned up the area and it has real clean lines without the license holder, it looks nice. Since I have a body lift there was room below the tailgate to mount the license plate, so I drilled a couple of holes and reused the license plate door torx screws to attach the plate.
I unbolted the xfer case from the skid plate and put a jackstand under the transmission. I was going to drop the xfer case skid to work on the exhaust and take the front driveshaft off to swap u-joints, but I ran out of time.
The rear driveshaft looks real sexy with the paint and new u-joints, and the Teraflex u-bolts
