Either way, it's looking like it'll be good enough weather to do it this weekend, just a bit cold. Next weekend is supposed to be warmer, but I'm impatient

Lol mine is going on the second I get the chance. What are you doing for the rest of your exhaust?

I've currently got a re-done y-pipe off the stock manifolds (2.25" downpipes merged to 3"), which goes into a 3" cat, 3" flowmaster 70 and 3" Kolak tailpipe finished in the stock 5.9 tip. I'm gonna pull everything before the cat and re-use the rest. I got a longer (and shiny stainless) piece to bolt to the y-pipe output flange to mate it to the cat (the one DT includes necks down to 2.5" to mate with the factory exhaust, the one I got keeps it 3", they're called "header reducers" on Summit).

I'll probably re-do the muffler and tailpipe over the summer, as my current ones aren't stainless, and it's already too loud since I cammed it, and headers will only make it louder. New muffler will probably be a Borla and a resonator, I think.

Are these header reducers universal? Or would I have to match the bolt pattern? I'm not gonna do the rest of it now, I'll wait till spring until all the salt is off the roads. But when I do, I may keep my cat, get a 10 series flowmaster and a 3" tailpipe, probably an IRO since Kolak said he doesn't sell just the tailpipe by itself. Man, I can't wait to hear it then.

IRO tailpipe doesn't come in stainless though. And yeah, any header reducer meant to bolt up to a 3" header with a 3 bolt flange will work.

Replaced my rear lower control arms. Was a PITA because the rear mounting brackets were bent inwards. I had to mallet and scream for about 4 hours getting them in there. I'll do the front lowers, tomorrow. Otherwise wasn't too bad. Did one at a time with wheels on the ground.

31" 1050 bfgoodrich mud terrain km2 on a stock 95 Orvis

Finally added some 31s to my ZJ. I heard the Orvis had a higher lift than the regular model, but it still grinds when you take sharp turns. I'm adding the 2" lift kit in a couple days. The CV shaft and rotors are being replaced, plus a mysterious coolant leak is leaving me with no clear solution. It's got 117,000 miles and the V8 engine is 6,000 miles old. According to a thorough inspection specialist, the Jeep is still a BEAST. All I know is that the coolant needs to be replaced constantly and a bunch of gunk is building up around the radiator. Also, I love the Orvis 15" wheels, I'll never part from those original patterns with dark green tint.

And the interior is completely un faded or worn down, which seems to be a rare find these days.

Check the tanks on the radiator really closely, if plastic, it'll start to stress crack and leak slowly.

Nice zj! You'll love the BB!

OT: went to work and back in it.

I agree!

I cleaned the IAC and throttle body on mine. Noticed a much smoother idle. Also detailed the interior and restored the exterior plastic to the best of my ability. Very happy with the jeep so far!

Replaced all 4 rear control arms. Man were the old ones shot. Found out that when sitting on lvl ground the bump stops get in the way of the upper rear bolt on the upper ca's. Had to take em out to torque the bolts (removed with rear body on stands, axle on jack)

Oh one question for the forum....how do you remove a deep socket from the frame rail?

You'll need a very very steep incline...
