Drove it to go mow my dad's grass.
Then with the money I got from mowing the lawn I bought it a set of nice shiny new stainless steel headers.

Now to wait til next weekend to install them.

Wheeling

Wheeled it for the first time ever today. Messed up the steering a little and now have the death wobble, again. Oh well, it was worth it.

went from having a 225x75xR15 spare tire to a 33x12.5x15 spare tire with new matching 5th wheel. Definitely a lot better fit!



here it is mounted on the back....it's new home!


Not bad for $100 tire (brand new, thanks to a member of a local forum), $100 wheel (a 15% discount over retail), and $19 to Discount Tire for mount/balance.

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!!
i learned the same kind of wiring lesson a ways back, i was installing a bazooka sub and disconnected a relay that was just hanging in the back of the jeep by the roll cage to use for power bcz i figured it was just for the dome lights since it went to the tailgate, turns out the po wired the fuel pump into that, took me 2 days of rewiring everything back there and a new fuel pump to realize they split the wires up under the body and they went off tho the relay in the back of the jeep

Decided to add some rockford fosgate speakers and spent the next three hours cleaning up the PO's mad scientist wiring craziness. Some electrical tape, removal of two wires to no where and clean up of two hot wires dangling with no covering later I can listen to some good audio and not fear electrocution.

Yesterday I started installing the Daystar 1" body lift since the OEM bushings were dry rotting and just about gone. The two very back bolts snapped so I had to drill into the body in the wheel well to get the capture nuts out. And, the bushing up by the gas tank next to the fuel lines is being a royal pain in the you known what. The bolt is out but the bushing and insert don't even want to hammer out. Going to try and finish it up today.
