What did you do to your YJ today?

Let this thread be an inspiration to all of us doing mods, maintenance, or repairs.

I'll start it off, over the holiday weekend, I did an oil and filter change, fixed a couple rattles, did the front brakes (new rotors and pads), and swapped the brake fluid.

i sewed up the gaping hole in my soft top with fishing line in preparation for winter. then cut off the busted *** exhaust pipe from the muffler back and welded on a 90 turn down...keeps the fumes out even with a few drain plugs missing lol. one of my u-joints is fixing to give out, i should probably fix that next before i catapult my jeep on the highway.

This weekend I replaced all the brake hardware and pads on the right rear, fixed my parking brake, checked trans fluid level (was fine), checked Xfer case fluid level (needed about 1/2-2/3 Qt.), changed air filter, fixed a vacuum leak, tried adjusting my choke linkage so the choke works (failed), and installed a cheapo CD player so I can have some tunes.

I repaired a smashed rear passenger side lower shock mount. Landed that bad boy on a big rock, looked like a crumpled beer can. Been driving for 4 weeks with a shock & mount zipped tied up and out of the way. A little heat, hammer, weld, and some paint; it's good as new. Oh, and new U-bolts while I was there.

The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!

Dirty, rusty, banged up YJ.

Where did you get that buzzer? I be needing one of those.


Outside of that I took my doors off for the weekend to enjoy the weather. It was in the low 70s. Got to love Florida.
