I attempted to tint my own windows today rather than pay a shop to do it. I got pre cut tint from ebay for like $30 (cut pretty good actually, I recommend it), 5% in the back and 20% for the two doors. I f*ed up the back window pretty bad because the piece was pretty large and a pain to handle. That piece was also cut for a newer hardtop, mine's a '92 but the hard top is from a '90. I might take that in to a shop to redo but overall not a horrible job. Now that I know how to do it, I could probably redo it again if I feel like it and have it come out better.
*also just noticed the preceding post by gonewhln and our jeeps look similar although he's got a TJ
Instead of spending my Saturday working on my 91YJ, I was able to go trail riding at Mountain Side Offroad Park. Yes, All of that hard wrenching pays with a trouble free day wheeling in the rain. The 4" Rusty's lift, with 35" Mud Brute tires worked great on the hills and in the mud. Several of the guys I met said the flex was great for new springs. We met guys from north Alabama and Georgia, some of these wheeled some wicked buggies.
Take it out and play with it.
Well...where to start, I started my coil conversion about a month ago and I should be done this Tuesday. I call it a KMA Kustomz conversion...4.5" RE long arm Tri-Link we (my klub and I) made with the help of Ballistic Fabracations DIY parts. I got a Dana 30 off a XJ from a friend for free and everything transfered from my 30 to this 30(chromoloy shafts, CTM joints, Vaccum disconnect conversion, and Aussie Locker). The problem I ran into was the frame on a YJ goes straight back from the front and a TJ starts straight then curves in to allow the spring to fit so I had to notch the frame 1 1/2 inches to make room for the coils to fit and make a support for the backside...turned out great even if I say so myself. I'll try and post some pictures and document what we did to help someone else if they choose to do the same build.
just got it back from a shop up here in the okanagan Canada that does amazing work. i would usually do most of it myself but some of this work needed pro's
new shock hoops on the front
new cross member and shock mounts rear
4 new bilsteins all the way around
5 new wheels with rock rings
5 new 37-14.00/15 IROKS with inner air beadlocks
new stainless exhauset
if your sharp you'll point out that the spare is still a 35 KM2, still waiting on the 5th IROK....they are quite hard to come by up here for some reason.
Dont forget to wave, OVERLAND...
Spent about 7 hours today going through the entire ignition, fuel and ECM system. The check engine light was not coming on so I searched the threads and found that it may be capacitors inside the ECM. With no experience with this sort of thing I went to Radio Shack bought capacitors and a soldering iron. Replaced the old caps and the CEL came on and then it started up the first time. Music to my ears.
i put a new amp for the speakers in last week and i have music again
today i went to have the oil changed (i change it every other time myself) the guy who does it is a jeeps-only guy and he had an extra rusty's cold air intake there so i got it for free and mounted that at his shop. also ordered my new tires from him for list price. toyo open country m/t 33x10.5x15. still looking for a new k&n filter for the intake. advanced auto didnt have one with the same opening. also doing work to a freinds 93 cherokee today hopefully
