today I adjusted the TRans Valve cable on my
L6 98 ZJ,
cleaned mass air sensor and idle air sensor,
cleaned up the 63.5mm throttle body with an old tooth brush!
now she purrs like a kitten, shifts like a champ and runs smoother than ever!

I just ordered some new Doetsch Tech 3000 series shocks for it. We'll see how I'll like them when I get them on.

I used those for a long time. I liked them because they were decent and cheap to replace.

They seem to pull decent reviews from Jeepers. About the only thing I've seen that people don't like about them is they tend to rust a little. I don't run shock boots right now, but with the rust issue, I was considering running boots on them. And until I can convince the wife that more expensive shocks are worth the money, these will do. I like the fact they're so long compared to almost all other shocks out there that fit in the stock location without modification.

You won't need shocks boots. That will just help them rust faster. The can is what usually rusts. Before you put them on scuff them up and paint them with some good paint.

Cool. I'll make sure to do that before they go on. It should be easy enough. And then no boots it is. The question is, what color?

Took a picture of it at work.


Then got it stuck... Friends don't let friends drive a 2WD niner with an open D35 in the rear. Got it out after careful application of momentum and torque management.

Why do you have a 35 on a Niner?

Because the PO was a piece of **** that I'd punch square in the **** if I ever got a chance.

It's a pretty D35 though.

Or an 8.8... In the 4.10 flavor. That's the plan as soon as the funds allow.
