Could be a brake caliper locking up, that could be the cause of both the vibration and the dragging when coasting. . . Hard to say definitively what the problem is. I would just take a close look at everything and see what's going on.

Also, which muffler are you getting? A Magnaflow or a Flowmaster? They are two different companies. . .

Engine wash down with simple green. Took it to get an estimate on a new floor pan for the driver's side, but the guy wasn't in. Go back in the morning I guess.

It's not hard to install a new one yourself if you have access to a welder and a body saw. Remember, if you are good with a grinder, you don't have to be a good weldor. lol

How well did the Simple Green remove oil and grease? Did you have to scrub it at all? I have a bottle, and I want to clean up my engine bay a bit. . . There's a ton of mud dried in there, I was thinking I could spray everything down with Simple Green before I hit it with the pressure washer.

It made it look cleaner than it was, but I didn't scrub at all. Still grease caked in some places. I probably should do it again and let it sit longer.

Bought a 4 door JK to give the YJ a rest. Finally after 265,000 KM's she gets a break from the daily pounding on my commute to work. Funny thing is I miss driving her already. At least now I can focus on turning her into the bad *** trail rig she wants to be. Wife won't let me mod the JK ti'lll it's paid, but she didn't say anything about spending money on the YJ. :-o

Finally put tags on and semi-legally took her for a drive (dead inspection sticker). Got my first and subsequent Jeep waves - very cool

Got my trans back in and buttoned up, took it for a spin around the neighborhood and all seems well. New torque converter operates properly

That looks pretty cool Copleydad! Now you just need to do the Blower Motor mod to stay warm during those cold winters up there.

Found out that cordless impact wrenches are not for everything... Twisted the stud off of the driver's side mirror taking it off of the door mount so I can stick it on my newly installed mirror re-locator brackets...

Also found out that there is a LOT of body undercoat up inside the body panels. Trying to get the window hinge nuts off was a nightmare.

Also, did you know that the ground wire for the fuel pump is attached to the e-brake bracket? I didn't either. Didn't feel the retaining nut and wire fall off when I dropped the e-brake bracket to move it so I could reach the window hinge nuts. Put everything back together not realizing that I had missed that ground wire. Jeep wouldn't start.

While I was under the dash, I had yanked out a Clifford Alarm that one of the PO's had installed. I thought that was causing it to not start. Spent a couple of hours between beers chasing down the wiring for the alarm only to discover that it had already been fully disabled. The PO just left all of the stray wires in place.

Started to diagnose the new electrical problem and figured out that I had spark, but no fuel. Followed the fuel pump wires back through the cab and finally discovered the ground wire hiding against the inside of the quarter panel and the nut that holds it perched on the inside lip of the dash.... Celebrated with another beer!

BTW, I hate blind wiring!! If you take something out, take the wires out too!!
