Replaced my horns that were dead, changed fluid in rear diff, and checked to see why the e-brake doesn't work.. Previous owner had new rear brakes installed and never did the shoes for the e-brake. No pad left at all, just the metal shoes. So next weekend is installing some new shoes for that, and changing the fluid in the transfer case and front diff.... Possibly a few other things that I can find to do on it.

installed my IPF lights awhile back, opted to install a contura rocker switch intothe existing lighting housing with the help of my dremel tool, glad I did, looks great in my opinion. thought I'd share the end result.

Got the switch from: http://www.otrattw.com/

Hmm Mines not working either... There's separate shoes for the e brake? I didn't know that... I'll check that out then!

Yup. Basically a miniature drum brake system.

Yes. Pull the rotor off and you'll see it.

Yes.

Found out that my alpine radio's infrared receiver is shot. More reason to wire up the steering wheel controls to the radio.

Do it! I did mine and I love it. I've got the volume on the left with the little "nipple" button as a mute and the right side is seek up and down. I like having the mute and volume all in one hand so I can turn it down quickly when needed.

Determined I hate driving it because it costs too much. I own a fine piece of performance machinery and I can't afford to drive it. Stupid.

Installed a new steering box to fix my playful steering , Was super disappointed at the feel of behind the wheel. Do all ZJ's Steering have that dead feeling? It just seems so disconnected. I'm gonna try and replace my steering stabilizer maybe that will fix it.
