Fixed that sagging door. A good 2,5 hiur job, alone. 1st time I held dremel, too. Went through 8 cutting disks for dremel (those bastards crack just by looking at them). At the end, had to use chisel and hammer to finish cutting the bottom pin.
A word of advice: when cutting pins, cut the top one towards the top, and bottom one towards the bottom. Otherwise you'll have to cut again to drive the old pin out completely (ask me how I know).
Ended giving all the hinges on the ZJ a good spraying of white grease. Just in case.

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.

Just SWR'ed the Firestik

Channel 20: 1.1
Channel 40: 1.5

Probably the best I can get it. I'm just glad it's in safe SWR readings, so I don't fry my radio!

2x6......mini boatsides.


but really 2x3 is fin, you do not really want the sam as your frame rails, just basically replace the stock rocker.

Today...

So over the weekind i had a chance to get to some more work in the grand. I replaced seals and gaskets in the front diff, I replaced both wheel bearings, bolted on the rock sliders that i had recently applied a new coat of hurkuliner (looks great!) I have to get to the seals on the t-case and the rear end next weekend. The slip yoke ground down the t-case seal after the lift was installed, so there is some polishing to be done.


Question for all, What should I buy for a locker for the Dana 35 rear diff? Looking at several options but I know that I need to do something before mud/trail season...

Also I am looking for a better option for a trail bumper. From what I have found of the major brands i am not really impressed. Either they want way too much or they are just plain ugly (ARB) and I am not going to waste my time. Is there any small fab shops that are making a good looking and truly rugged bumper for the ZJ? I lookedat a cherokee only site earlier and the bumpers would have been perfect but they were XJ only... Any thoughts would be greatly appriciated.

I will get a good pic of the progress and post it tomorrow.
