I just replaced seals in my d30. It's not that hard to do, just take your time, and don't get frustrated and hit it harder like i did. It'll just cost you another seal.

Cool. Thanks. So you pushed yours from the CAD? Kinda tight in there. I was thinking of using the threaded rod way, but what do you recommend. I'm still learning as I go, so I'm open for suggestions.

I bought a 2" hole saw that fit the seal just right for the disco side, ran a bolt through the back of that, and put a socket on the bolt with a bunch of extensions to fit out the other side of the axle, then just hammered it in. For the other seal, I cut a small piece of pipe that just fit that seal, and just tapped it with a hammer. I got it too crooked the first time and bent the seal, but i just went easy with it the next time, and it went in ok.

Definitely! I'm saving for a new set of tires (I almost died on a hill climb yesterday). So once I get those I'll be down.

Used the BFH method to correct my windshield angle and dremmeled my soundbar so that it "fits" with the RockHard cage, then reinstalled the hard-top.

Also replaced the nut on my T-case mount and replaced a burnt out side-marker bulb.

Well yesterday i limped the new YJ home, 1989 2.5.
Started getting to ork on it today, pulled out all the wet moldy carpet.
Only major rust on the body at least is the driver floor pan so cut that out today.
Trying to do all the things that dont cost money to fix right now, due to lack of cash.
Couple pics:



Might need a new window frame what do you guys think?? haha
Inside of the frame bulges like its giving birth to an alien, hen the wipers are on ha

swapped rear axle and ps pump. $350 for axles, free ubolts thanks to a local garage here, and $12 for spray paint. Never realized how different 3.07 - 4.11 would be. I can start in 2nd now!
