Did my heater core the way mentioned in this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/h...80/index3.html

Wasn't too bad. Having heat for the first time in the ZJ is incredible.

In my opinion, if you take the front bumper cover off, you have to black out everything what was underneath, which only looks good with black cladding. Paint that thing, it would look great!

Funny that you mention the damage thing. Mine was the same way.

Went to change the driver side cv boot. The slack was a little too much for my liking , so I'm going to get a rebuilt for $47.99 @ Auto Zone w/$10.00 core charge . Going to change the passenger side later !

I was going to do the same thing, but got the dura last gold lifetime (new) ones for 57$ the re-manned one they mig weld the cage inside then Cnc it smooth so it's not as strong as original. And you have a 10$ core charge anyways, just go for the new ones man!

They don't always know what they are talking about. Back when I was in high school I worked for checker auto which is now Oreilly, there were a couple a** clowns I worked with that constantly sold people the wrong parts. IMO the best thing to do no matter what parts store you are going to is do a little research and get on their website and look up the parts you need your self. You can look at all of the info about the part you need and make sure its the right one, then go to the store. I do this everytime I need to buy parts, I have yet to get the wrong part.

I agree with you there, and there ARE dumb people all over the world. I'm jus saying that usually the best info you'll get from auto zone is "i dunno" from pizza face behind the counter! I totaly gave up on them......forever. and that's across three states.....not jus where I live now.

Gave her a bath yesterday. I let her be muddy for a week. Long enough for me.

Changed the front diff fluid and checked the spider gears to see if that's where my clicking while turning is coming... What do you guys think? Look bad?
