Got a simple Warn bumper from a friend, chopped it up and made it a stubby!

You have a line lock on your YJ?! God I havent heard anyone talk about line locks since I sold my Mach 1.

Nice seats. They look comfortable!

I took my front bumper to the machine shop this morning to have it straightened. It was bent in on the passengers side about 3" or so. He called and said it was done! $50. I didn't think he would have charged that much, but it's better than buying a new one I guess and he used a press instead of heating it. At least it's done.

Replaced blown out freeze plug from the head. Now I have a tick/knock in...hopefully nothing major. Taking the valve cover back off tonight to inspect.

I'm one turn of the wrench away from a divorce!

Installed Daystar 1" body lift yesterday. Well its not totally complete as I didn't get the radiator shroud moved. Gonna wait til I get the trans mounts back in so I can see just where the fan lines up.

Also there were two "radiator support blocks" included in the kit that I can not figure out where they go. They are 6 sided sort of rectangular blocks with holes through the length of them. Anyone know what to do with those? I can post a pic later to clarify.

Edit: Its these things:

I dont see anywhere on my radiator to install these. My radiator has six screws holding almost flush to the front grill.

They go on the corners of the grill toward the fenders. I found it easiest to just notch out the new blocks and slip them over the existing screws and sandwich them down rather than install them as per the directions. My torx didn't reach well inside.

I don't have a stock radiator anymore... and don't remember how it mounts... but those look like the grill to frame mounts... between the grill and the frame rails.

Edit... not to self: refresh before posting... Anticanman beat me to it.

I've done the same thing. I even applied epoxy to make sure they stay put.
