The pads were no big deal. One of my calipers siezed on me so I replaced them. My pads were practically brand new. If all you're doing is pads, you shouldn't have any problem. All my bolts came out very easily and the old pads went in the new calipers with no problems. I don't mind doing pads and rotors, but it was my first time bleeding brakes and I didn't find that to be enjoyable in the least. If you're just doing pads, you shouldn't have to bleed the brakes. Just don't disconnect the brake line from the caliper while you're replacing the pads.

well it wasn't today, but a few days ago I changed the distributer, plugs, distributer cap, wires, rotor button, and painted the steel rims a day after the tune up. I recently changed the water pump, thermostat, heater core hose, the starter, and got a new battery as well. oh yeah and I replaced the oil seal for my front differential a few weeks ago.

I fixed some minor rust on the rear lower passenger side corner, back by the tail pipe. I Wired it down smooth, primed the spot, and painted it with some color match paint...doesn't look 100% original..but it adds character it's all better now.

Last night I got it swamped in mud...took 4 hours to get it out..it was pretty bad. I really need to change the tires, the current ones are not made for mudding AT ALL. I've got pictures..I'll post them in the "Show us your YJ wheeling pics" thread later.
