Dear lord I'm tired now!

Then wheeled the crap out of it today. Overheated in the 104* heat when the ground popped off my fan. Then I blew up my rear u-joint and drove the 35 miles home in front wheel drive lol! I think my pinion angle on the 8.8 ended up a scosche high. Is there any way to bring it down a notch that does not include shims or new perches. Looking at how everything settled I'd say it's about 2* high of where it should be. Not really any vibes except during a hard launch, but I should probably deal with that!

Oh and a pic from last night...I'll get more up later.

Time for a shower and a nap...

Cheers

Dude that looks awesome! I'm sure I missed it somewhere but what paint did you use? Using a spray gun?

I used the FelPro 1 piece gasket. Which made it really easy thank goodness. I used red rtv so it could handle the heat.

I finally started building the tube fenders for the back of my rig yesterday. HOPEFULLY I'll be able to get them skinned and painted today. I used 3/4" gas pipe, a pipe bender and my MIG welder. I found some bolts and welded them into the ends of the 4 mount points with a lock washer and nut on the inside of the fender wells. I'll get more pics as they progress to finished.









Treat every situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it pee on it and walk away.

I bought two sets of cavalier seats on a recent trip to the yard, figuring it would save me a second trip since I work on more than one Jeep at a time. So I went to install a set on my wrangler last week and they're not even close to bolting up, now I need to make brackets or buy different seats

IIRC they changed the seat brackets in the Wrangler in "I think" 1990. The newer brackets are a better fit for them.
How far off are they? There is an entire sticky thread about YJ seat swaps, what to do, what fits, etc....

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!
Zombies hate fast food.
Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!
