Pulled out the BA 10/5 transmission
Installed AX-15

Found that installing a manual transmission & tcase as a unit is a PIA to do singlehanded.

decided i wanted to herc under the cage too.

dremeled out a slot screwdriver spot in the (some other idiot) stripped torx bolt and got it off...allowing me to pull the cage like i should have done in the first place. sanded out some rust. rust proof primed it...herc'd it.

planning on installing the lift kit next week...got a camping invite darned it.

Installed my Tuffy Stereo console and relocated my stereo to it - pretty sweet!
I'm extremely satisfied with the console. I went with the 6.5 wide model. I'm glad I did. I think the 8" would have been tight.

I also threw my not so "Ultimate console" in the garbage!!!
That thing is the worst console ever! Please don't waste your money!!!

Yesterday. I removed secondary radiator that cooled the AC. What a pain squeezing it out up betwen the grill and the radiator. It was easier to cut the brackets out instead of getting the wrench in there. Now the Jeep should run cooler as theres nothing blocking the radiator. I also shot it with the hose to clean the fins. There was mud trapped on the bottom ledge
