I bought 2 spicer U-joints for the dana 30 axle shafts. $33.00 each. I am told these are the right ones for my 1995. 4WheelParts warehouse had them in stock.
I also bought a Warn winch plate. ($119.00) p/n 21390. The design changed for the mounting side plates since the last time I looked at this a couple weeks ago. So the side plate mounting is lower profile, an improvement. It's black too. It used to come in a grey color from Warn. I am going to post pictures of this plate soon. Just wanted to post the Spicer U-joints I bought today.

If your 30 still has the original 95 axle shafts they will be right. As far as I know 95 was the only year YJ that had the bigger joints. I just picked up an XJ solid shaft for mine gonna can the disco. I also purchased two alloy usa serviceable joints from Oconee off road. They are heavy duty but have needle grease fittings in each cap so you can keep them lubed. they were 32 each free shipping.

I purchased a cheap digital camera with a flash, so I can document all these night time XJ rescue missions I've been going on. You know the old saying no pics, it never happened! Only thing I've had recently was my cell phone.

Just did the same thing as UltimatE. Actually my kids and wife did it to my YJ. I told them they wont be putting a bow on my Jeep this year lol. They snuck out in the 14 degree weather in the middle of the night to do it. I did not notice it till I got to a job site and everyone was looking at the big red bow on my muddy black Jeep.

Good family Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

After baking and curing the header paint yesterday on the exhaust mainfold, today I cleaned up the intake manifold and carb with various cleaners and brushes. Then decided to check a few vacuum items. Diaphram shot in the EGR - Oh, wait! that appears to be a stealth blank off plate hidden under the EGR in amongst all that silicone gasket goo. Yes, it is. Hhmmm, the solevac was hooked up on the carb, but diaphram is shot and the plunger doesn't quite reach the adjuster screw on the carb linkage(or the adjuster screw doesn't quite reach the plunger). So thats two items hooked to their vacuum sources that basically flowed air right on through. I had already found another open "T" in one of the bigger hoses (without going out to look at the labels I stuck on, I think it was part of the big hose going to the evap cannister). And the Jeep has run fine since I brought it home.

As I keep going through cleaning and checking emissions hardware before putting it back together with the new manifold gaskets, I keep finding more little things that in theory should just destroy cold starting, idling, and rob power. The fact that I'm finding little things that have been "massaged" like the EGR and solevac adjuster makes me wonder whether it was done to bypass things to try and enhance performance with the Carter carb setup, or whether it was done simply to bypass an expensive item or two that wore out and quit functioning and keep things looking stock and correct for whatever reasons.

And the last thing for today, I took a break in the middle of this post and finished tracing out and removing all the wiring and components from an old alarm system that had long since given up and was just cluttering up the under-dash area with its own harness and wires scattered all around. Some of the hookups to the stock wiring were interesting, adequate, but interesting. I'm damn glad I've had about 3 years of electrical fabrication (sport yacht factory) under my belt when I dug into this wiring nest.

Well, I hauled some building materials in the back. . . (2) 1"x10"x6' boards, (2) 1"x6"x6' boards, (4) 2"x4"x8' boards, (1) 3/4"x4'x4' piece of plywood, and a box of wood screws. lol Tomorrow's going to be fun, I have to somehow get some paneling and a 1/2"x4'x8' sheet of drywall home to finish up the project I'm working on in my basement. . .

Besides driving it, I've been mostly pissed off about the broken speedometer and the unknown cause of the clunking noise from the front right suspension when making left turns. . .

Took the dash apart on my lunch break and reconnected the cables to shut the da#% vent so I can cut down to one pair of socks on my commute

Replaced some dash light bulbs and realized that yes indeed, the heater controls actually are supposed to light up.

My dad's lit up for the first time the other day...and his Wrangler is civilized compared to mine. I was more than surprised becaue I used to use a flashlight to see the controls at night. Well up untill I knew by heart which control was which!
