I love my 3.7 in my Nitro.





Just kidding. I'm pretty sure my ZJ idles smoother and my Gary Fisher is faster.

Lol that's what I'm saying. The 6.7 may be the only one, but it's a Cummins!

went to put rear brakes on the 94 discovered they were in excellent shape, so I adjusted them *BAMM* it stops now. Painted the drums :LooksBetterThenRust:

made the spare tire retainer useful, also jammed the 245/75 in to a tire cover

I couldn't get a 235/70 under the cover. How'd you manage that one? And that's not a bad idea for lengthening the spare tire stud, or whatever you want to call it. I bought a 3' threaded stud and cut about 3" off of it with a connecting nut to put it together. It was a PITA to find a metric threaded stud.

My 245/70R16s previously and 255/65R16s now both barely fit into the cover. I can get it on 90% of the way, but it doesn't go over them properly. Then again, the 5.9 cover may fit differently.

Haha, nope. I had a full size cover. It fit my stock 225/70/16 spare tire. I tried cramming a 235/70/16 and a 245/70/16 in to no avail.

Spark plugs I pulled today. Gross...


Did some work tonight in the dark. Popped the louvers off. Found this ****. Needless to say, that all got washed off.



Then I washed the drip pans. Then painted them Krylon Fusion Black. Nothing on the Jeep is getting put back dirty. Dirty vs Clean:



Painted. Then painted and installed.




The louvers were looking pretty ****ty, so they got sandblasted and Plastidipped. Those are drops of water from washing them off in the second picture, not paint bubbles.




Also started Plastidipping the badges... Daylight pictures to come.
