Got back yesterday from a camping trip, so I cleaned up the Jeep.

I definitely need that 2 cyl upgrade pacakge.. Does anyone know where I can get that from? But all in all the Jeep pulled that pop up camper really well. It pulled the camper better when it was loaded vs. when it was empty.

Also, Jeep could of really designed the breaks a lot better, from the factory just trying to stop itself is sucky, add a trailer and it is sucky times 5. But of course I gave my self plenty of distance

I replaced the water pump. It took a little longer than planned. I screwed up the gasket the first go around. It got messed up after I couldn't get the bypass hose fully connected and I had to take the pump back out. I had the bypass hose inserted but couldn't get it all the way on and could not get a pliers on the hose clamp.

This made me learn a new trick when putting the pump in. the bypass hose only gives you about 1 inch to work with So no room to slide the clamp back and no room to get a pliers on it. And it is impossible to hold the pump get a pliers on the hose clamp and push the hose on to the pump all at once. So I put the clamp in the vise and opened it then put a zip tie on it to keep it open. Warning be careful when doing this you don't want that clamp to come flying out of the vise. Then I slid the clamp back onto the bypass hose and lubed up the nipple on the pump. It slipped right in and after I had the pump all bolted up I positioned the clamp and cut the zip tie. Done!

Today I took the oil pan off the transmission and put a new gasket To hopefully stop the leak and put 6 quarts of oil in. And the transmission does not slip like it did before. Now I need a couple u joints and I need a new exhaust manifold and some big tires to get it on the road. Then it's off to the lift kit.

I swapped my stock 35 tooth speedo gear for a 33 tooth speedo gear to match my 31s and 3.73s. According to my Garmin, the speedometer is more accurate with the 35 tooth gear but I lose miles (on my way to work, I actually traveled .6 miles more than what the Jeep said); with the correct 33 tooth gear, my speedo reads slightly faster than what I'm actually doing but the mileage seems accurate. I'm going to drive it to work again tomorrow with the new gear in there and compare it to my Garmin. I also found that the transfer case skid plate makes a nice little stand for my iPhone as I use my flashlight app for light while I did it in the dark.
