Changed the oil, installed a stereo cause half of the buttons on the old one didn't work anymore:

Took off the rear vents and my wife re-painted them with Krylon Fusion. They were missing most of the white paint anyway and I think they look better in black:

New passenger side cv joint. It started clicking somethin fierce today on my lunch break, after I got back to work and parked it I noticed a half inch sized ball bearing on the ground and my cv boot was junk. Stopped at vip, got cv joint for $60 and put it in in 2 hours, 30 min of that was drilling and tapping a new hole for the stripped out caliper bolt. The old cv had 1....yes ONE of the 6 bearings left. Successful day

Yes, I know my user name is "94zeejay" but its actually a 95. Apparently I can't type, oops!

Removed my receiver from the hitch!!!!


I tried to get it out when i bought it in September with no luck. soaked it in PB blaster tried again with heat no luck. Left it until today heated it up real hot and melted candle wax where the receiver and hitch meet. Watched as the wax was wicked in kept heating then hit it with the same BFH and the moved on the first hit!!!! Kept hitting and out it came

I thought my buddy was messing with me even my Dad was watching (and mocking me) couldn't believe it

driving home from the gf's after it snowed tonight, took the backway and there is this little warehouse shortcut i take where water normally pools and it was all a thin sheet of ice. so glad i put my stock wheels and tires back on and love the full time 4WD! was at full lock and spinning for minutes haha i loved it! it does donuts so well it was spinning on a dime and making myself dizzy. then i saw smoke pooling around everywhere and was like oh **** so i stopped, turned the jeep off and got out and instantly smelled burning rubber haha. i had burned through the ice and it was spinning the tires on the pavement which was roasting the tires. so now there are a bunch of pieces of melted black rubber all over the fenders lol.

i pulled into the driveway and my dad was walking out to his truck getting something and he could still smell the burning rubber hahaha

I painted my grill black to match the bumpers and side cladding. It looks better than I thought it would. I will try to put up some pics soon.

I turned mine right out with the help of a butane torch, & some PB Blaster.. If you didn't cut the heads off the bolts spray them with PB, and turn them out with a socket & ratchet. The problem is that the bolt is fused to the bushing due to age... Spray the bushings where the bolt goes through, heat it up, & turn them out.. If you had to, you could also drive them out with a punch & a BFH. Hope you have those replacement bolts, they're hard to find. Ask me how I know

Guess what bolt fused itself to the bushing for me?


axle side front control arm bolt PITA
thats right, you CANT get to the back of it
after 3/5 hours, lots of liquid wrench
i tightened the nut back up and stacked washers taped together over the exposed back side of the bolt
then i turned bolt left until the washers(being pushed back by the nut) pressed tight against the axel tube
and cranked with a cheater bar til it popped. i was afraid i was going to dent the axel tube

control arm bolt should be a breeze. as said above, PB, punch, and a BFH
