Not yet. We were working until 2 am and my buddy had class at 7, so we had to get it so it'd get home. I still need to tighten the sway bar links and get it in proper shape. It actually doesn't death wobble at all until you hit a bump while decelerating around 55 actually. When my strength returns, I'm gonna clean the back up (we just dumped all the tools into the cargo area) and get the front end put back together proper.

That said, my strength is GONE. It was hard enough to carry the strut compressor into O'Reilly to return it today.

Dump a quart of Lucas transfer tune up in it.

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys a Jeep. And I ain't ever seen a sad person in a Jeep!!

Congrats, looks a million times better! Welcome to the DW club

On topic, gave my ZJ a bath after ages of being filthy. Not bad for a 17 year old Jeep with a rough past! Took some pics:



Clean and fresh interior:

Rear brakes! I can't wait 'till I can do some actual driving in mine. Next up: alignment. Followed by another inspection and fixing whatever they find wrong this time. Coming soon: interior bedliner.

Nothing lol. I planned on working on replacing my front hub but got to work today and my boss decided to have me put a 2.5" teraflex lift in his jk. Everything going smooth and as I'm getting ready to torque all the rear bolt it started down pooring. So not only do I still have to lift the front tomorrow but I have to go break down another zj front end to get a free hub and steering knuckle

I'm just putting in an off-the-shelf Duplicolor one, I think. Something about Kevlar in it. Just bought it because it was available, it was cheap, and I need it. I don't know if you read the horror of my carpet before I ripped it out. I'll get Monstaliner later for parts of the exterior, and may redo the interior with that, as well. I just need to get something down before I have to deal with snow, and so I can get the seats back in.

Removed rear door speaker to examine for size and mounting. I think all of the door speakers are shot so I'm thinking about replacing them. Problem is, I'm not sure the OEM radio system is worth it.

1998 Limited 5.9 build

Finally had a couple decent days to spend some time getting the lift on my jeep. 3.5" Rubicon Express. Got a good deal from Kolak but the springs took forever to arrive and still haven't received my new bilsteins.

I forget how much of a pain installing a lift is. Soaked all the bolts with PB blaster on saturday and started dismantling things sunday. Couldnt do the upper shock bolt because i dont have the special tool. That will arrive tomorrow. Bilsteins havent arrived yet anyway. All bolts came off relatively easy. Had to use a big breaker bar on a couple that i forgot to PB but nothing broke. Kept getting interrupted by rain and friends and a hot date for two days so only got the new spring isolators, springs and adjustable track bar bracket mounted. Plus my spring compressors are crap so after a couple failures that nearly cost me a finger or two I went to autozone and rented their external compressor tool. Definite must have for lift install.

Issues: the hole in the passenger side track bar mount is too small for the new bolt to pass through. would use the old bolt but the hole through bushing is larger than the old bolt. Need to buy a drill bit to make the hole larger. Steering damper will not come out. Need to buy a 3 lb sledge I think. nothing else worked. Used the bottle jack against frame to get the clearance that i needed to get the springs in. Worked great. I also don't have all my tools with me so am being slowed a bit by having to do everything with hand tools. Really miss my air/power tools. I also miss my garage. I hate laying on gravel. lol

Free parts if anyone wants them. Currently just have the front springs, track bar and track bar bracket. The spring insulators are actually good too but since i bought new ones someone else can have the old ones. I think the springs are in good condition. ride height from ground was 31" to fender on both sides.
