changed the diffs, removed the swaybar (in prep for a restore and new disconnects), painted the steelies black to match the rest of my junk.

Wired in an old ford high beam light switch into my high beams, changed oil and fixed a vacum leak. Also discovered a crack/leak in my new exhaust manifold. I plan on removing it, placing it in my front yard. Then taking a crap on it and setting it on fire. I will put it in a plastic bag and return it to the manufacture. I'm pretty sure I would get a replacment or a refund but it will be worth it. I will post some pics once I do.

Added a hand throttle and then had to test it out. It was a good weekend for the Jeep.

Outside of that I took my doors off for the weekend to enjoy the weather. It was in the low 70s. Got to love Florida.

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.

I have to do my rotors as well is it a big job? Is it expensive?

Brakes are relatively easy, and the Jeep is nice and big so there's plenty of room to work. Figure on ~$100 in parts for new rotors, pads, and fluid (if you so choose to swap it) - you CAN go cheaper on the parts, especially the pads - but I generaly opt for the OEM or OEM equivalent to be on the safe side.

Today I came outside to find the Jeep covered in ice! I guess I have to admit that winter is really here.

On Thanksgiving, something in my rear wheels/brakes locked up and caused all sorts of havoc. Spent the better part of the weekend making sense of it all.

Seems to be good now.

Yesterday I replaced the drivers side upper and lower ball joints, and also the U joint on that side. Then today I cut the rear exhaust hanger and welded in a piece to make it longer. The tail pipe was rubing on the underside of the body and vibrating....making lots of noise. Not any more.

in the last week i have put reverse lights in. built and installed a hand throttle, replaced crappy factory seats with sunfire seats, washed it, rotated tires, changed oil, built custom switch panel, built the defroster ducts i saw on here and attempted to get better radio reception but failed.

I did the CJ front clip conversion (yeah yeah I did it). Also removed all the Vacuum lines and unecessary computer related garbage. Installed the weber carb and D.U.I. high power distributor. New exhaust from the down pipe back. And installed a mile marker 9000# winch (just got to finish wiring it).

OH YEAH! . Alls I gotta say is man, I got myself a brand new Jeep. Still got a ways to go though.
