I don't use any of the HF hand tools/sockets. Mine are all Craftsman. But I do have a lot of their other stuff... 6 ton jack stands, etc... I have never had any problems with anything I have bought from them except a 15 gallon agriculture sprayer electric pump that went belly up. It was three years old and I took it back to the store just from curiosity. They said the pump had repeated failures and they gave me a new pump for free.

As far as what I have done to my YJ today.... I wiped some dust off the passenger side fender. You know, the area under were the hood hides it on the top. It was a pretty involved process, using a front to back wiping technique with minimal pressure so as to preserve the original scratches.


Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

I ordered the seals, bearings and a lubelocker gasket for the D30 and a valve cover/w gasket. Hopefully my heep will stop leaking for a bit.

After reading some of the posts by guys running 35's on their 2.5L's I found some conflict with what I was getting out of mine. Most people said that they had a lot of trouble running 33's with the stock gearing. I felt that I was getting better results with mine on 35's. At first I thought I was just trying to self medicate the situation, but then realized I actually was getting fairly decent results with my set-up. I went on Novak and used their test to find out what rear axle gearing I am running. Come to find out the PO installed 4.88's in the D30 and D35. I guess this isn't the best thread to share this newly found information but it was great news for the YJ!!

Drove it 30 miles to two different JY's to get a fan shroud for the Comanche. Couldn't get any so it looks like I'm out another 45 bucks.

The fan clutch and coolant solved my overheating issue. But as soon as I pulled into the driveway one of the bolts for my own shroud gave way and I thought the fan went through the radiator. Managed to coast it down the driveway under my work cover thing. Was a fun ride.

Found this cool convertible Comanche at the JY too.

rebuilt my rocker arms on my 5.3. Installed comp cams trunnion replacement kit. Man what a difference with the valve train noise. I pretty much have no noise now. If you have a high milage vortec or ls series engine I would highly recommend the upgrade.

Took a lady out wheeling in the desert. She loves Jeeps and wheeling. She's super cute and I enjoyed watching her bewbs bounce haha. It was a good day. Maybe being divorced isn't so bad haha.

Ordered some rocker guards. Should cover up some rust. Got it with the step, but I'm not sure if I like that sticking out. If not, I'll just cut it off and call it a learning expense.
