Garage
Yesterday I took down the dash to put in new speakers. Today, I replaced the rotors and brake pads.

'95 yj

The '95 YJ is still waiting for a rebuilt transfer case. Have it almost ready to pull out.

Also, got one of those tiny (and cheap) CB radios from Midland installed and working.

Can't wait to get it back on the road again. Need to see exactly how hard we are getting hit with taxes this year before pulling the trigger on the t-case fix.

Replaced the idle air control valve. I knew that would be the issue! Gatta love a 3 minute $30 repair that fixes a major issue.

Also gave it a good long wash at the self-serve. I am determined to not let New England get the better of it.

Now onto installing my new Daylighters!

Took it out of the garage and drove it over the mountain of snow if front of the garage door. Cant wait for summer either! No heat, no back window makes for a chilly coffee run

Tomorrow I'm getting a few gaskets and getting to work on cutting some rust out of the floor and the tub.
When is it necessary to replace freeze plugs?

The swap was very easy . Grand Am seats will bolt onto the jeep hardware. Hardest part is getting old seats out of the Jeep . Local u-pick junk yards are full of Grand-Ams so finding good ones are easy. Caviler seats are the same way as a direct bolt in but I havn't done those so don't know for sure .

I replaced the vacuum lines and did the team rush upgrade. Awesome results! It starts, it idles, it runs like a bat out of hell! And I also got the instrument lights working! Good day in YJ land!
