Looking at new manifold, cat, muffler, pipe, and hangers.
Check right where the manifold going to the pipe. The is a little pipe that go to some emisions ****, mine came off one day and it got really loud.

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.
I had the same problem getting the bolt out of the rear track bar I used a C-clamp and a socket head and squeezed it out after doseing it with PB blaster...

I could've used that light cluster if it's for a pre-94 (I think I jacked my 91's up removing it)

he said "that's a first" but no issue at all.




As for the wiper, it was rusted and cracked, the gauges didnt work neither did that light cluster. The shifter boots were both duct taped togeather.

Lets see, in the last 4 days been trying to catch up on maintenance since I have no idea if the PO actually did any...from the looks of things so far it seems the answer would be no. I'm fairly certain the brownish tint to the antifreeze was my first clue. That and realizing the outer metal of my front shock actually rusted in half...my project for next weekend. Other than that, changed oil, tranny fluid, spark plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor and fuel filter. Completely stripped 2 of the torx on the hard doors (those extractor sets suck ***) in an attempt paint them so they're ready for the cold. The boss and I spent the day messin with them and then I gave up and called the guy from the township maintenance building next door and he's going to come get it in the morning and take care of it. Did get the hardtop I picked up for a hundred bucks painted tonight though. So far I'm impressed with the rustoleum hammer paint. God I love my job and getting paid to work on the jeep

Well, yesterday I got it back from the shop. There for an alignment, but I also learned that the front axle is not the original one. But it's still a D30 from a late 80's YJ, I believe so it all works out. It also needed new front calipers, because they were the original from the other axle and never changed. And it needed a new tie rod because the idiot PO welded the adjuster thing or something. And needed new ball joints. (There goes $1,145 ) That's all fixed now though, and it drives easy and straight... until the 4wd kicks in.
That'll be fixed since today I received my Posi-Lock which I'll be starting to install tomorrow. I was just puttering with it today, mostly: cleaned the soft top windows and windshield. I can actually see through them now!

Last 3 days, I have been trying to get my jeep back up and running. I am trying to replace the timing set, but I am running into so many problems that it is unreal.
