I put on a simple black shift knob to replace the ricer one the previous owner had on there.

it was 88 dollars shipped to my door from quadratec.com they are listed as 75 dollars, then there is 13 dollar shipping.

i still love them, they seem to light up the signs on the side of the road better too.

In the last 2 weeks I have replaced the head gasket, fixed the auxillary lights, installed the hardtop for the winter (too cold for my son with the softtop), found the leak in my on board air system, cleaned and fixed the battery cables, fixed the door locks, took it back to Midas to replace the rusted out muffler for the 4th time. Yep in a year and a half they have replaced 4 mufflers and this one almost lasted 6 months. It was pretty funny watching them try muffler after muffler to get the right one to fit this time. It was free so I guess you get what you pay for.
Tried fixing the crushed exhaust pipe from a rock that I hit, so it looks like a new section of pipe is in the works.
Tore down the extra engine I have and got the rebuild underway.
Next is finishing up the new rear bumper and spare tire carrier.

Just finished the water pump, thermostat, and various hoses replacement. So far, no more leaks... Though I just want to say that it took way longer than it should have to replace. Why is it I ALWAYS find frozen bolts that can not be removed? How the heck am I supposed to remove the old bolts off the old water pump for the fan blades if I can't unscrew them!!!!!

This weekends progress.

2" BDS lift kit (And removed rear hidden hitch in the process)
Currie steering box brace
ARB Compressor and hooked up rear air locker.

And Sunday I finally got the Jeep off road for the first time since I started to upgrade.

Now it's time for some skid plates and rocker protection.

I drove mine. Oh wait you ment mechanically. I cleaned out all the trash, amazing how much crap can pile up when you drive 100 miles a day delivering pizza. Took out the back seat. Basically cleaning and prepping the back of the tub for some work. Got some holes to JB weld then gonna slap on some rhino liner in the rear.

Sounds like a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen...

got up early and replaced my fuel filter... the @#$%#$* thing still died 2x on me this morning. In neutral it revs up to 2500 and stays there till i stop, then when i put it back in gear, it dies... anybody wanna buy a 91 Islander?

Oh, and i noticed that i have beautiful ruby red trans fluid dripping off the very back of the transmission...

I swapped out my old, broken tilt steering column for a non tilt column, with quick disconnect aluminum sprint car wheel I am thinking about getting the wheel powder coated so it does not stick out so much on my rig

Hey tube yj, is that just a stock YJ steering column? And where did you get the quick disconect wheel, and the price range? Thanks.

Replaced the AX-5 transmission in my brothers YJ, this one has 5th gear! Two nights. 14 hours. The Haynes repair manual made things look so easy. Don't let anyone tell you that it's not worth the 30 dollars to rent a transmission jack. It sure made night #2 one hell of a lot smoother than night #1.

Air goes in and out, blood goes round and round. Anything else is bad.
May the Force be with you.
