Basically posting just to post. Isn't that what this thread is all about anyway, for the most part? To keep my post on topic, I fiddled around underneath the Jeep today trying to find loose parts to tighten. I tightened all the caliper bolts. That's about all I found :/ I guess that's a good thing that was it, but they shouldn't have been loose to begin with.

Spent about 3 hours welding broke driver door hing and putting new pin and bushings, also had to weld door up around the latch. It had been messed up for so long it was tearing the metal. No more broke door now! Sorry no pics of it finished, I will try to get some tomorrow. It was getting late on me.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.
