Got the front bumper back on after painting it. Finishing up painting the rest tomorrow if the rain holds off. I'd post pics but the app is being stupid.

Edit: Added on my computer after the fact.

No Fuel

For the longest time I couldn't figure out why my 97 ZJ would just die for no reason, I'd let it sit and sometimes it would start, I'd bang on the gas tank and it would start, But after months I finally figured it out, The electrical connection from the fuel pump at the axle, even thro it had safety clip on it, which was worthless, it would still ease it's way apart to stop the fuel pump from working, My fix? hard wired it, soldered it and put shrink tubing on each connection then warp all of them with black tape, No more problems, I'm back to loving my ZJ.

Garage
Fixed my fuel filler tube enough to put $11 worth of gas into it, $4 went onto the ground

Guess I'll have to put a new tube, ontop of that I need new hub bearings and an alignment.

Should probably just invest into a new Heap...;

All about that unibody life.

Started building my spare tire carrier/rear bumper. Removed the hitch, skid, bumper and brackets. Next is remove the little rust, prime, paint, and undercoat. Using 2x3 rectangular steel for new bumper brackets. The stock steel bumper will attach to the new brackets, so I can still use the bumper cover. In the empty space behind the bumper cover will hide the structure of the tire carrier.

Well, I tried fixing my rear driver side window. It wont roll up or down. So as soon as I pulled the door panel off, all kinds of dirt and cigarettes fell out. So I ended up pulling all the door panels off and cleaned behind them all. Still havent figured out my window problem...

I'll agree with locking the front when you have a 249. However, the D30, yes, even with the low pinion, is a good axle. There are many threads dedicated to how the high pinion is marginally stronger at best. Generally, if you threw something at the LP that broke it, more than likely it would have broken the HP as well.

I found a maple tree growing out of it. It's odd because I just drove it a couple days ago and a lot the week before leading up to my Bundy Hill run. I figured it'd have to sit a lot longer than a few days to start growing it's own vegetation.

I'm getting ready to swap out the spent D35in my wife's '94 4.0L DD for another D35 I got at the JY for $20.

Then I need to change out all 4 front control arms and the D30LP in my '93 V8 for another $20 JY D30LP, since the whole front end is effed-up from being driven by the P.O.s for probably 100,000mi with a spent VC in the 249.

'93 V8 ZJ Mountain Goat Edition.
'95 V8 ZJ Limited, '97 4.0L ZJ TSi
'96 4.0L 2wd XJ, '88 4.2L YJ
