And you shouldn't have voted for Obama either.

BOT: My jeep was making a really terrible sound when I hit the starter. Grinding and popping and sounding like a slow motion grenade explosion inside a storm drain tunnel while wearing hearing aids turned up to the highest level.
I though "This is it... The end of the world. This thing's gunna' blow and take out the Milky Way Galaxy and turn it into a huge black hole".... Yep that's what it sounded like.
After my meticulous and tedious inspection, it seems the bottom bolt on the starter that holds it to the bell housing mysteriously disappeared. I heard about a starter bolt theft ring in the area but paid no attention to it.
Fortunately, I just happened to have an extra one that was absolutely identical to the one that found a new home, probably on John Bull Trail.
Some Locktite, a lock washer, a 17mm socket, and presto-chango, my life is whole again.
In summary, I replaced a missing starter bolt. Thanks for your time.
Awesome explanation!

I spent a good 2 hours + 1 can of PB blaster removing the rear drums, to find that the brake shoes were completely shot. Now, normally I do all the work myself, but for $99, I decided to let someone else do the work (I did the hard part, breaking the drums loose, first time since the 1990's it appears). I figured the cost of the tools, the shoes, a lathe, etc. was a bit higher than $100. Made it to the store before closing, only to have them tell me they tried calling me and telling me the shoes weren't in stock (called from my work phone, foolishly, so never got the return call). I've learned my lesson.

MY YJ isn't really "set up". It's stock 4.2 five speed, 2.5 inch lift, one inch body lift, TJ flares, 33/12.50X16 BFG/ATs, thirty with an Aussie in the front, open 8.8 in the rear twisting 4:10 gears. Nothing special.
When we were on Holcomb Creek at the north end rock garden, we came upon a group of uber-bought, er I mean built JKs. They watched me drive through the rock garden non stop. One of them came up to me at the end and said "That was amazing. None of us thought you were going to make it in a stock YJ". Um... It's not stock.
You have the best mod that people cannot simply buy or bolt on....its called an experienced driver mod.

He really is driving. We were on John Bulll going through some small rock gardens and he did great! I'm grooming him since he decided that my YJ belongs to him. He's not even going to wait until I kick the bucket.
Now the little snot tells me I'm taking a funny line and he would have taken this or that line. I've created a monster!

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!

Went to the town fair tire Ive been going to for years since I know everyone there but now they have all new people working there. I wanted to have them fix a slow leak and they refused me cause they said I have the wrong kind of lug nuts on..? What kind of crap is that? They couldnt even explain why or what were correct ones. Theyve put these same ones on and off for the past couple years with no problem. But they did say they would have no problem doing it though if I bring it in to them already off the Jeep, just an inconvenience

Used some Meguiar's plastic cleaner on my gauges and scrubbed with an applicator pad for 45 mins till i got rid of all the crap lol

Wish i had taken before pics but those things are looking just about brand new now. They used to have almost decal glue residue on them about 3/4 in around the edges, i'm assuming dirt and grime over time. They are so nice and shiny that i think if the sun hits them the reflection might create issues while driving top off lol

Installed new DS axle shaft and seal due to the destroyed uni joint that ovaled out the outer shaft ears... Bought a whole new inner/outer set up so I didn't have to mess with installing a new uni..

That @#$%^&* axle seal always take more effort that anything else...

There was some very fine metal sheen to the old gear oil, probably from normal wear. Aussie looked fine...

Resumed work on my inside spare mount until the rain interrupted me. I'll be adding gussets tomorrow and finish all the welds if time allows.
All of this is done with a HF 220v welder using flux wire. Im rdy for a quality MIG welder...
