Yesterday I bought Cragar 15x8 Black 397's and today I mounted the tires (31x10.5 Goodyear Tracker AT's) onto the rims and mounted the rims onto the Jeep. Decided to get a slightly narrower tire for the winter, and have my 33x12.5 Interco TrXus for the Summer.

Those AT's will do much nicer on the snowy icy roads. Wear better too.

I got my new replacement radiator in. Installed the "new" trans cooler. Then took it out for a shakedown run to check trans temps. 120 going in and 90 coming out.

There goes the axle

Out driving in some back woods (no big deal) and went down a small trail with mud on the surface, again no big deal. Tires begin slipping and decided to back up. Well I guess I got on the gas a little too hard and snap. Now that was a big deal. Finally get to swap out the axel and do the SOA over the winter though.

I have been watching your overheating saga for awhile now. With all of the stuff you have done, there are still only two uncertainties; Correct flow of the waterpump and the head gasket installation.

It is very obvious you are a nice guy and I am not flaming or trying to piss you off. How much did you pay for that head job and if it were me? I would be in this mechanics face. From what you wrote, it has been overheating since you had the head done. You then went on and replaced radiator, pump, flushed system excetera. We keep coming back to the head job or the pump. Your 92, if it was not equipped at birth with AC uses a reverse flow waterpump. With that out of the way, we are back at the head.

lets see this morning i took apart rear drums due to some offroading and don't like the mud and water settling in the rear drums with all those springs and stuff in there so i blew them out with air and relubed everything.

I then changed my harmonic balancer or as (jeep calls it) vibration dampener and belt since the old on the grooves were messed up and was squeaking and the rubber was coming out of the balancer also it was chewing up the belt so i took that off and put a new one on along with a new belt no more squeaking and runs alot smoother now i'm happy and satisfied today.

took her to the LA reserve and hydro locked it

P.S. never look at the spark plug holes when cranking a hydro locked engine
