Hey, thanks for the info on the seats, that will help me out a bit. Add seats to the list of things happening in a couple of weeks.

Theoretically you can change the seal without droping the tranns, but I wasn't that lucky. Mine is stuck up in there real good.

My JUNK. http://www.usjeeps.com/rig.php?rig=155
It was a jeep thing, but all that crap wouldn't hold up !
I looked from the kitchen window at it sitting in the driveway and tought of 'the list of broken Jeep stuff' from the other thread, starting with the tire that has a slow leak and is down right now. Oh yeah, I came here (too often).
This week I took out my tired dana 30 and started the process of putting in the Dynatrac pro-rock 60 . ( (Saved for that for years) Figured out I need to shorten my steering linkage so now I have to wait for the link insert to get here next WED.
well managed to almost finish my interior project. Quick background: i live in antigua which means a jeep is a must for the roads, however we have no off road trails here, so my jeep is more of a pimp my ride style jeep than a mudder.
so yes, i managed to re position and wire up my 5, 6" interior neons and my strobe under the xplod amp, also installed 6 foot rope neon cable around the boston and xplod speakers in the rear deck. resprayed my seat mounts and mechanism covers, resprayed the underneath of the bonnet, covered all cables and tubing and wiring in engine bay in chrome piping, removed factory intake and installed chrome aftermarket performance intake, installed airhorn under bonnet, and made space for under bonnet neons. Kixed down the top of the recovered centre console, and fixed int eh equalizer and hidden neon inside. tested out a burnt DVD on the dvd player. Ordered new bonnet latches, brake switch, window cranks, window seals, 1st 2nd and 3rd syncro kits, and new passenger side door handle. Clenaed up all wiring for undercar neon kit, and whell arche neons.
so a fairly productive weekend. Pictures of my very different Yj coming soon.
My alternator died Sunday, so I changed that out. While I was in there, I found a very small leak in my radiator, so I am going to put some Barrs stop leak in that and see what happens. I also helped my friend align his body w/ his frame after he removed his 3" body lift, and I helped my other buddy wire up some stereo stuff in his Bimmer.
