A few days ago I replaced the windshield/cowl rubber. The next 2 days it rained but now my Jeep is bone dry!!!
and -since I had the top open, I also installed an overhead CB mount. (now I just need to wire-up the CB)

I gladly accept this is a jeep that gets about 1000miles or less a year for the time being, and never goes on the highway anyways.
In a few years it will get gears and a lift... and a cb.... and rhino-liner... and a front bumper... OH THE POCKETBOOK!! oh well it for a good cause


and I got a true to life 1941 American Jerrycan that has the stamped features that were stopped after 1945!! $2!! Question now is, Clean it up and fix battle damage/ or leave it and get a few new ones?

I've been trying to figure out/replace everything in my rear drums for days now, and I finally got it done.

RC 4" kit install day part 1

Sunday was Rough Country 4" install day part 1. The passenger side rear trackbar bolt is still in (the sleeve has permanently bonded to the bolt) but the rear is sitting on the new springs and shocks. It looks taller than I thought! The stock springs were sagging really bad.

We ran out of energy about 8:00 last night when the left front spring's rear bolt refused to come out. After successfully doing three corners of the Jeep.

Going back for part 2 in an hour or so, with a grinder and some grinder wheels, and a new bolt. Also got a brake line compression fitting to fix where we broke the driver's side rear brake line - we kinked it trying to but the bracket extension on that came with the kit.

It's a bummer that we couldn't finish yesterday, it's my daily driver. But my little motorcycle was enough to haul me around town and get tools and parts.

Tonight we will be victorious and I will put up my before/during/after pictures.

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

2) painted headlight and tail light guards
3) painted the hood vent
4) cleaned out the interior and installed a new rug
5) replaced window weather striping

over the last week:
Clutch, rear main seal, oil pan, valve cover gaskets. The front of the oil pan gasket seems to be leaking. I used to love my Jeep but starting to hate it! Syncros in tranny maybe not great since it's grinding going into 3rd gear and it's hard to get into third (seems to help if I slam it into 5th and then back into 3rd??). Gotta love it...NOT!!

90 Wranger 258
2" lift is all
Live at 10,000 ft in Colorado and take out my Jeep literally every summer weekend.

I was driving the YJ yesterday and noticed that the exhaust was really loud. Went home and looked all over trying to find the leak or break. Found nothing but noticed that I might as well replace everything because it all looked bad. The second I get one piece fixed I'll have a new leak if I don't. Looking at new manifold, cat, muffler, pipe, and hangers.
