So I've had the front end poppy-clicky for a while. I figure the CV shafts are probably on their way out anyway so I stopped by the JY after work and found myself some U-joint shafts.

Now in the long run I'd rather have CV's especially with a full time case, but the green mafia brand don't last on the trail and the mopar stuff is way more than I want to put into a turdy.

So u-joint shafts it is. I was lucky enough to find a pair on a 96 ZJ that had good u-joints already.

Pulled the front end apart and found a surprise on the passenger side. This discoloration is normal right? Nothing to be worried about. Crap.

Yeah, there's no play in it and it's not giving me **** so I'm not bothering to swap in one of my spares. Maybe when I do balljoints in a week or two I'll care, maybe not.

Got around to replacing my oil pressure leaking unit.
jeep-build-1.jpg

The first one I got off amazon was missing a pin, so I grabbed one from the green mafia.

I think it might have been slightly off though.

So I ended up with one from the stealership, bugger.

Was doing some interior work so I ripped out the VIC and resoldered the pins, no more coolant sensor bull****.

Swapped in the radio from the niner (slightly newer model). Also took apart the steering wheel and hit all the buttons with contact cleaner.

Reprogrammed the steering wheel controls. Works great.

Added a hook for the microphone, works better than I thought it would.

Weird, the one I pulled had two and the green mafia and dealership ones both had two. Maybe year break? Single pin one did work for ****.

Oreileys told me the two pin was for 96+. That's what I got for the 96 and it seems to work fine.

Thought I could get by with just leaving it on the motor when I swapped...apparently not. Changing it out tomorrow.

That discoloration is definitely normal.
Brand new wheel bearings that were just put on and both had the same discoloration. Its actually more a purple than brown.

Interesting, must be part of the manufacturing process and I just didn't notice it. Come to think of it, I did install that wheel bearing in the dark.
