Finished off replacing the control arms, shocks and springs. Just need to get her up to the local tire dealer to sort out the alignment. Not much left on the "to do" list - headliner and VC should leave me a wagon fit for another 100k miles.

I got to replace my busted radiator today!





I had other things I was replacing too which is why the trans cooler and a/c condenser are hanging out like that

Did some dry wheeling al a repurposed golf course which has 167 acres of trails. Not bad for a wheeling spot 5 mins from my house. $10 a day.

Looked at a buddy's CUCV he is wanting to sell. Like the idea, but not sure yet.

Sugar Hill. NW of the intersection of Kirkwood and Bissonett. They have mud pits, hills, a pond, sand pits, dirt bike track, and some steps, strep enough to get my two front tires in the air(scary). No rocks, but good for what it is. Usually open weekends, $10 a day or if they need volunteer effort or an hour or so it's free for the day.

History of the place: was a sand pit, then a landfill. Became a golf course in 2001, then went out of business in 2003. Cost is too high to develop and surrounding area isn't worth it. So it'll remain an ORP for years to come probably.

Traffics usually small. Yesterday it was me, my friend in his '84 1-ton suburban, another tx4wd guy in a land rover, a few wranglers. During the day a few four wheelers popped in and left.

Replaced many rusted interior panel screws with stainless steel ones (ones by the doors and tailgate). Also fixed my wiggly counsel. Found the plastic was cracked around both of the screws in the arm rest

Well I know where I'm going next weekend. Thanks for the heads up man.

I picked up a full set(minus the hatch) of privacy glass from a ZJ at the PIYJY today. $30

Going back tomorrow to get the entire power moonroof assembly including the formed sheet metal with the moonroof opening, for future welding into a ZJ when I perfect my small gauge welding skills. $30

Also found two MINT front fenders and a MINT hatch with the flip up glass(privacy glass as well). All are green , so no painting required!!!

I rerouted my catch can lines again to get rid of the low spot. They now run forward along the A/C lines, around the front of the battery and down under the headlight to the catch can stashed in the bumper.

Ordered some Autolite Racing 3923 spark plugs and some summit 8mm wires. I think I got bit by the performance bug lol. Also, I changed my oil a week ago and it was about 3/4 past the fill line on the dipstick. Now its at the fill line. I think its leaking at the filter. Switching back to mopar filters from purolator to see if it fixes my problem.
