Thank you Honey.....I appreciate you fixing my Jeep....I love you....

Replaced rear shocks, removed the rear trac-bar (which had to be cut off), herculined the tub, and installed a new Kenwood stereo and alpine speakers. Luckily, the old radio outputs were bad and I found that the sound bar speakers actually do work so money saved there!

Took the lady and the dog to the ebach and had a blast. Even got to check out a new offroad spot, too bad most of the trails were underwater . Oh well, just another reason to lift it, lock it, and get some MTs

took apart the gauges and concluded that my printed circuit board is fried where the clock gets it's juice. Anyone know where I can get one that doesn't cost $80?

Also took the opportunity to clean all the gauge faces, and paint the metal faceplate white so I have cool white rings around my gauges. I highly recommend everyone do this, and paint the faceplate body color. It's a great way to bring your color into the dash.

Do you have pics? I was thinking of painting the rings orange and then the rest of the dash black. Thanks

Haha no doubt! Mine included some cleanup with a wire wheel on the drill, and some riveting of sheet metal. It definitely slowed down the rust!

My labor day was spent convincing the front track and sway bars to come off. I really don't know why the driver's side sway and track bolts have to interfere with each other. It makes it very difficult to remove them. The only thing I could get on the driver's side track bar nut was a crescent wrench, I couldn't believe that it actually worked! But those old threads fought me every quarter-turn of the way. The bolt started spinning so I had to hold the head with the channel-locks. Took a looong time.

I started the rear track bar after that but I wore myself out. Got the drivers side nut off but I don't have a tool to do the passenger side, the shock and exhaust are in the way. I took the nut off the shock but couldn't get the bolt out. Put the shock nut back on and made some stew.

I'm prepping for the RC 4" lift I ordered Friday 8-)
