Ryan speaks the truth Charlie. This is an essential item.

You have room to talk Tim. How long since your Jeep moved under it's own power? When will we see it moving under it's own power again?

Glad you got it this far Charlie. Now finish it and utilize that 4x4.

AHHHHHHHHHHH. One of the caliper bolts on the driver side is stripped halfway through the whole on the knuckle side. ARGG. Now I have to swap knuckles before I can finish.


That and the spring retainer clip's bolt hole is stripped out on the axle side. As in it's just a wee bit too wide and I cant the bolt to tighten. Any suggestions? I can't get a nut on the other side.

It doesnt fit around the rubicon express coils anyway. I only have one clip on the entire jeep.

Just go with a tiny bit larger self-tapper. It's just a weak little clip anyway, you just need to hold it on there.

Woody, my project is taking way longer than I ever wanted Gathering the correct parts and having them sent correctly the first time was more involved than I imagined! It should be driving before the 21st of December.


Charlie, you can do what Jim said and just get a self tapper, or drill and tap a new hole, or just drill a new hole an run a bolt down there with a nut.

Tim, that's kinda what I figured.

Charlie, lookin' like you are making progress. Quit messing around in GD and get to work.

My two projects are starting to finally get somewhere, however working outside in -30 temps isn't all that fun.
