Felt good today so I drove my yj to work plus it will keep me awake on the drive back home when I get off at 12am tonight.

What'd you do about the rear?

You sure that's not just cause for a 8.8 swap?

with as old as YJs are, I'm fairly surprised to find two that are exactly the same lmao. It's more of a touch and go and work as you go, so I found out looking at other people's jeeps.

My jeep came with extended break lines front and back, guess PO had some smarts to him. But it doesn't abscond him from the other ****ups that make you /facepalm . Here's to jeeps!

Also, was shopping for some welders, found some on harbor freight:

http://www.harborfreight.com/welding...der-68888.html

http://www.harborfreight.com/welding...der-91110.html

http://www.harborfreight.com/welding...der-69029.html

From least to most expensive, prolly can't afford the more expensive one till next year, family finances and all. Think I could make do with either of the first two? I'm kind of a novice when it comes to welding, I've done it a few times growing up living with my dad, but it's been a while and I need something to practice with, also something that might do some light (not the frame) weld work on the jeep, making sliders, armor reinforcements, etc.

What do you guys think? love you for reading this <----drunk!

Our arc welder is a pain to use on small stuff. Frame, yeah. Side mirrors I think they would melt lol.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

After seeing the internals, and swapping gear fluid, thinking its time to start rebuilding my 8.8 and getting it ready to swap in. New fluid made the gears quieter, but the noise is still there.

Bought a tuffy console and softtop off craigslist for my jeep today. Best part is I only spent 100 bucks total!

Keep on Jeepin' on!
