Also the rear wiper i can tell you from experience size does matter on it. Haha

So bought my zj with a 13" one on it and it wiped for crap. Then bought and put a 12" on and was better but still not to great. My magic number was a 10" wiper, that works perfectly.

You will always be remembered in our hearts.

RIP Ratmonkey

Left it sitting at work yesterday while I took the company van on a trip down to PA for the weekend. It hasn't sat undriven for more than 36 hours in a long time, hopefully it behaves itself and still starts when I get back Sunday night.

Put new ball joints in my hp30, and upper CA bushings. Welded my axel tubes, one was so loose it jiggled around. Put on a new door since the old one got ripped off

Took advantage of the fact that my manifolds and head are off the engine to replace the motor mounts. The passenger side one was a PITA because the through-bolt had to be pulled out towards the firewall, and so it hit the oil filter adapter. Absolutely no way to get it out without loosening the adapter and twisting it 90º away from the motor mount.

Fortunately I have a normal hex-head on the adapter bolt and it hadn't been overtightened when I got a shop to replace the O-rings a couple of years back, so I was able to get it off with a ratcheting 16mm wrench with no problems.

working on removing trim pieces to drop my headliner, replace the sunroof assembly, and just poking around between toddler interruptions.

Finished hooking it all up today while it was slow at work again!!!
It all works as it should!! After I was done hooking it up, I parked it in the shade and left the windows down and the hatch glass open.
It was nice and cool when I went to leave at the end of the day.

Next project: recharge A/C....

Cheated on it by driving a CJ7.


but did pick up an NP242 to swap in as my viscous coupler is locked up tighter than a drum in my 249. now to just find time to swap it in. really wish it was a 231, but free is a hard price to beat.

I drove it 150 some miles to Bundy Hill to wheel the crap out of it. I accomplished most of the level 3 trails and Tipper, which is a level 4 trail. I'm pretty sure we didn't hit everything there, but it was a good time. I managed to escape unscathed damage wise, too. All in all, it was a good day.
