took off my antenna yesterday to inspect why it is not working properly... you can hear the motor and clicking sounds but antenna will not go down



i can force the antenna down manually, then power up the radio and the antenna mast goes up no problem, once all the way up and hit the off button on the radio the antenna mast stays up and doesn't want to get back down (motor runs, just mast don't move down)

link to my thread with this issue if anyone wants to help out: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/r...blems-1525974/

Just broke a Craftsman socket trying to get one of my hub bearings off!

Ah the pleasures of owning a northern Ohio Jeep

Consider yourself lucky sir. Here in the PNW a good percentage of our roads are lined with dense trees and brush with no visibility as to whats behind them. As you can imagine the deer don't send you a text that they're going to jump out 10 feet in front of you while you're going 40+ at night. You sometimes end up in a situation where it doesnt matter if its broad daylight, your eyelids are stapled open, your heads in a clamp facing forward, and the deer are spray painted fluorescent orange. Sometimes the collision is going down whether you're the title holder for the worlds most alert driver or not.

Plus I live on an island where the deer are prolific , there are almost no predators, and almost nobody hunts them. Theres several hanging out in my yard as I type this. Their pop control has been left up to car grilles.

I also do alot of mountain road driving in the Olympic Mountains where I camp any chance I get. There its not as much of an issue once you're on the dnr/np roads, but traveling at night on the penninsula makes deer encounters a fact of life. I grew up here, at 40 years old I know how to minimize the chances, but even if you have 10,000 hid's on your rig and a dead black cabin, the chances you will be able to avoid it are nowhere near 100%. You also may have heard mentioned at some point somewhere, but it rains here. Alot. Often at night. On the Olympic penninsula where my jeep racks up most of its miles, we have the only temperate rain forest in the continental U.S. that gets an average of 150 inches of rain per year, making it the wettest place in the United States outside of Kauai. Driving down a 2 lane highway on the coast at night in a heavy down pour even well under the speed limit, with a wall of rocks and trees on one side, and a rocky drop off into the Pacific Ocean on the other, you don't swerve and lock up your brakes, you hit that thing and pray that you and your passengers don't get hurt and that your vehicle is still operational afterwards.

And no I'm not saying every person in the PNW is going to hit a deer at some point in their lives, its definitely a buzzkill lottery.

So yeah, I'de like to further reduce my chances of stuffing a deer through the radiator at night a couple hundred miles and a ferry ride from my house by reinforcing that weak spot.

Be glad you don't live in a state where you have an antler rat trifecta of perfect storm conditions for your jeep to have a one night stand with bambi's parents sans your consent.

Build a steel bumper with a "Pre runner" style bar. Nothing will get trough that. That little push bar you got off a crown Vic might help,once

Cut off the track bar off my new donor axle (bolt was stripped anyways, no other way to get it out, going to use the ZJ track bar anyways), verified the 3.73 gearing, then fooled with trying to get the pinion nut off to transfer the ZJ yolk onto the new axle.

I loathe coil spring suspension. So much extra effort for so little gain.

Though I did contemplate a small lift...

All about that unibody life.

Just did upper and lower ball joints and a u joint while I was I in there.

Broke two Moog u joint caps installing it, after the second return at Advance Auto, they just gave me the extra caps out of the u joints I had returned!

And tell you what, that lower ball joint sure comes out easier if you press it the right way!

Next gonna do my front lower control arms as soon as my bolts come from Fastenal
