Well not today cause I was at work, but a few days ago I changed the 4 drive shaft U-Joints, greased all the front end parts that had grease fittings, and fixed a rust hole in my driver side floor panel.

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.

Today I manually locked my front axle until I can get a posi-lock. Some things seem quite a bit complicated until you do it for the first time. I felt like a teenager again after I tested out the 4x4. IT'S ALIVE!

Today I put gas in it for the first time since November!
6 weeks after replacing the slave cylinder the clutch went out...I had to wait till x-mas to buy the kit. And I spent a couple hours after work every day this week fixing it. So many set backs....The trans fell off the jack, the shaft wouldn't line up in the engine, the shifter wouldn't go back in (rocks got inside when it fell off the jack)...I finally got it put together thursday and I assumed my dad finished the rear drive shaft. I backed it out of the driveway about 20 feet and then heard the u joint bolt snap and the drive shaft fell out.....Only cost $3 for new bolts but it also cost another day. I have NEVER felt so good about puting $46 worth of gas in my Jeep!

Oil change, at 70500 miles. I know, not the most exciting thing, but that's what I did.

Finished mounting the mirror relocation/light mount brackets & mounted the factory mirrors on them.
Mounted the P.A. speaker under the hood and wired it to the C.B.
Still searching for the correct parts to fix the clutch that has been broken for going on 4 months now...
