Drove it down to Louisiana to pick up an '82 Toyota parts truck for a buddy. $800 later we drive it 80 miles back home

If we've got enough of a truck left over from his other one, I'll probably turn it into a trail rig to save mine as a dd only

Changed the alternator and idler pulley. Right as I was putting the last turn on the tension adjustment bolt it snapped right off. Couldn't have been applying more than 70 in lbs of force. Luckily, it snapped right where the tension is pretty perfect so I shouldn't need to adjust it again before I can get another bolt. Been a while since I've seen the voltage gauge so steady at 14.

Wired my cb in. Ran the coax and made antenna mount. Listened to a weather station just to see if it works. It's good. Going to go and get the antenna tuned Saturday after I get off work. Tomorrow after school I'm going to get a pa horn

Havent been able to do anything to or see my jeep for a week and a half now, but am admiring all the amazing jeeps down in yuma arizona! mint, no rust, no stock, and perfect country for a jeep owner (could use more mud thou). Cant wait to leave the 22 degree (72) weather, and get back to my jeep and play in the snow and -25 (-13) weather.

Made power cloth seat.

My leather driver seat has seen better days. Leather not so good and seat frame was cracked which made seat rock. So off to pull it yard to find replacements and that I did. Found a 96 laredo cloth in very good shape. I pulled front and rear seats and with some free front Husky liners I was headed home. Pulled my driver side and striped the seat off the tracks and pulled upper cover to remove four bolts for power recline. Then removed tracks from new cloth seat and the manual recline mechanism. I bolted the power tracks from my zj to the new seat. I then went to put all the control wires trough the side of seat. Where there had been a cutout in the leather there was not in the cloth so I left that side of the cloth unclipped from seat. Went to bolt power recline to cloth seat and was a bit surprised to see such a size difference in in the two mechanisms. Buts to save money I'm sure. Jeep made one seat frame with two sets of holes so bolted right up. I then pulled the cover back down on seat connected the wires and screwed the side control panel on to the seat. The front screw didn't line up with the hole like the back two did so made a new one. Mounted new power cloth seat in jeep. Lost heated seat that didn't work anyway and lumbar which I may take out of old seat and add in later. Very comfy with lots of grip. Don't slide on them at all. Haven't yet changed the others heat works on passenger side and is in good shape. Maybe when the sun heats up the leather this summer I'll do the passenger side. And I put in the free gray lol Husky liners. Also looking at photos the cloth seat is perfect except a rub spot that you can see on outer edge of lower seat back. Any other spots or dark areas is caused by low light I guess. The seats are lite like the back in the front side by side pic.

Getting rid of me leather for cloth was one of the best things I've done for my ZJ. I swapped in manual cloth and didn't attempt to swap tracks and power components. I'd rather have the manual seats because it's less to break.
