Welcome to the 33's club...enjoy the speed reduction

"When Life starts to pass you by..............Downshift"
Then again that used to be my motto until I got the Jeep, now that doesn't even work half of the time.

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)

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

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.

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!!

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.
