Finally made my antenna mount. Mounted my antenna and ran the wire through.

Today, I finished painting the wheel wells and the frame. I put my Arkansas Banjo Co. hog on my spare tire cover. I changed back to manifold vacuum and had to screw out the mixture screws about 2 turns. It does have more acceleration and pull at highway speeds. My timing is 10 deg advanced and I'm not hearing any pings.

Today I took off my hardtop and doors and put them up for sale on Craigslist. Changed the oil and changed the tranny fluid to Synchromesh. I took my soundbar out, disconnected the POS VDP speakers, filled in some space with expanding foam, and put new 5.25 speakers in (sounds much better). Also installed a Sirius reciever into my center console.

You mean the two piece collar? if so, I bought to stop this from happening again.

took out the trans and t case yesterday. had the fly wheel resurfaced and installed the new luk clutch this morning. then tore apart the tcase for the sye. i swear if everyone knew how easy it was, you would all have one! if you can change brakes you can install it. then found out the advance adapters didnt ship all the parts, still need 2 snap rings and the spedo ring gear to finish it up.. started taking the front d30 out ready for the new one!! cant wait for disc brakes for the rear!! few more days it will be installed. tomarrow gettin the 8.8 d30 w/ 4:88s and lockers dropped off and my 35 bfg km2's!!

Changed out the steering shaft lower bearing as soon as the mailman dropped it off this afternoon. Quite easy really and did discover a little bit of play and a dried out original bearing so it was worth the effort. Since I could not get the telescoping part of the used replacement shaft to work, I decided to use it anyway since it had good u-joints on it. My original one had a bit of slop in the joints that was just not acceptable, especially after changing out the original steering linkage with a new Rugged Ridge Heavy Duty one.

After spending about an hour of playing with my jeep, I was done. When I took it out for a spin, I could not believe that there was absolutely no slop in the steering. When I save a little bit of money I'll go ahead and replace the steering shaft with a new one. In the meantime I am enjoying a brand new Jeep experience! Oh, and realized that my steering gear box is pretty tight, no slop in it so the used replacement one that I just got will probably be up for sale soon or maybe keep it as a spare since it too is in great shape, is tight, and no leaks.

New steering stabilizer wow what a huge difference, new door bushings, fixed some frame rot by the rear shackle and new hardware for the hard top along the windshield. After I am done replacing everything on this jeep I might start enjoying it

Take a can of that dust blower office stuff, hold it upside down and spray it on there. After that, take a hair dryer and blow the hot on there. It should make the cold metal expand to normal. (hopefully)
