Huh, all those pics and I wish I had rear shocks... I should probably get on that...


Drove the YJ after the whole starter ordeal. Ended up raining. Feels like I have a whole new roof. It doesn't flap about and make a clacking noise, doesn't leak, and no longer randomly pops open from the windshield channel after flapping for a while thus exposing me to the rain. Also fixed a grounding issue with the amp.

Got the 9" set and bolted in. Took my first look with 35s. Got the exhaust hung. Started in on the front 44 hub install.

Sent from my phone because I'm doing something "more important"

Thats how I thought it went together, but wanted to make sure I wasn't thinking way off base. That should absolutely solve my problem. I'll be ordering it all first thing in the AM.

Makes me feel so, so, so much better about life!

Love you guys!....no homo...

Cheers

Did the harmonic balancer yesterday , so far no more 4.0 squeal , maby I finally found the source . Today just a lot of "Web Wheelin " Thinking about my upcoming 8.8 swap . Which includes a T Case swap new drive shaft , and springs too . To keep downtime to a min I am considering doing it in phases . I have been looking but haven't see anything about running the 8.8 with a stock shaft without a SYE . Can it be done ? I know the SYE is the way to go . just considering my options .

Ugh! Swapped the alternator with a warrantied one and after about 5 min at idle the damn breaker popped again. Wtf. I checked all the grounds I could think of and everything looks good.

Since your grounds are good check all your hot leads. Maybe you have a bad battery or battery cable that is drawing the extra amperage? Also try pulling all fuses in the fuse box that doesn't shut the engine down. Then put them back one at a time until the circuit breaker trips.

Thanks for the tips! I found what looked to be a failing spice on my kc lights so removed and soldered the splice and viola! No more circuit break! So when i was confident i Took it for a spin on my little shakedown trail by my place to get the poor tires dirty. They've been clean for too long!

Does 19 & 3/4" sound about right for a rear drive shaft with an 8.8 flange adapter. I mesured twice! I boke a Ujoint ear on the JY XJ shaft trying to free the stuck slip joint I'm ordering one from Adams!

I probably know the answer to this, but if a water pump is rotating backwards and is leaking really bad, leading to an overheat, put the belt back on the right way, and now the engine goes straight to overheat, that pump is busted, yeah?

I cleaned up the gunk under the hood, well started to, anyways. After replacing the stat and flushing the system, I got sick of all the crud hanging around in there, bought a new set of wire brushes and a wire wheel just for this.

Mine is 18.5". That's pretty good.
