Removing that type of shock is usually as easy as putting a deep well socket on a long extention. Put it on the nut on top of the shock, push and pull hard a few times to bend it and they usually snap right off just below the nut

I figured out that I had the left front brake line rusted out took it out and it broke out in the rubber one so I ordered the rubber one and bought some line form Napa I have to bend. Hopefully she will be ready to roll tommorrow and I finally got the top on all of the way.

what did i do today, wasted time lol

bought a 92 recently 4.0
the temp gauge has been reading about 130 so i figured i'd replace the thermostat.
i bought a 180, TOOK OLD ONe OUT IT WAS A 180 ALSO. PUT NEW ONE IN gauge reads the same. 130 or so. maybe a bad temperature sensor?
also i have no heat now. must be an air pocket.
i drained the radiator using the plastic drain plug. i noticed 2 brass drain type fittings down there also. what are those for , they do nothing when you take them out.

I suspect those two brass fittings are to hook up lines from an automatic transmission. Lots of radiators have a mini trans cooler in the bottom.

Tr6, I went through the same thing with my 91. replaced the thermostat etc... when all was said and done I tightened the connector to the sender(back side of the intake). Mine is just a slide on and it was dirty and loose. A little shot of contact cleaner and a crimp with pliers and it works fine.

Just a thought

I have brakes again I picked up the rubber left front brkae line installed that and bent up the one I got from NAPA and bled the brakes and went for a test drive. Took a small trail with a creek going over the road and got a little wet. Next maybe the exhaust it is toatlly shot from collector back it is rusted all to hell. Anyone know where I can get a replacement exhaust that I can bolt up in my drive way? Merry XMas to all here.

Rust and Undercoating

I had some surface rust where the frame meets the upper shock mount on both rear sides of my 94, Wrangler S. Looks like a place where dirt and salt accumulate and the frame and shock mount are probably prone to rusting there. Recommend that everyone check out those areas on their Wranglers. I took the wheels off, removed the rust and crud, and sprayed on some undercoating. Should be good for another 10 years. Inspected the rest of the bottom of the vehicle and the frame and no other rusty areas. Very excited and happy about the condition of the underside!

Ordered a set of rocker panel covers to cover that one little rot spot....
Then took it for a ride and brought it up to 60 in third.

I love this thing!
