Got mine back from the shop Tuesday and it's running great! Still needs a little work so it's going back in on the 26th for some by-pass surgery on the fuse box. The soundbar installation is complete and I have already started working on going deaf, the stereo sounds great.

Road noise? I don't hear any road noise!

Replaced rear output shaft seal. Got tired of smelling buring tranny fluid as it was thrown from the rear D/S onto the muffler. Also thought about the guy's Jeep that caught fire the other day and didn't want to tempt the fire gods.

Yeah, I gotta put a new foam seat cushion in my driver's side seat. It's pretty much shot as it feels like I'm leaning to the left when driving. I don't look forward to this job, but the seat covers and frames are in such good condition, I don't want to replace them.

Saturday projects

1) Got new windshield installed $181 with tax. I can see again!!!
2) Degreased engine with autostore crap, and then finally with simple green, $12.
3) Failed emissions because of exhaust leaks.
4) Got my exhaust welded up to fix the 3 foot section where I had 5 adapters and about 7 different clamps. So hopefully I pass emissions next time!

I finally finished wiring in the dome light on the sound bar. I just put a switch on the dash next to the switches for the off road lights. Working great.

Rebuilt and reassembled the transmission. Then found a shift fork bolt I missed putting back in. Let the disassembly begin.
