I cleaned interior and exterior of mine this morning still had some broken glass in the back seat! Now I am looking to see about disabling the alarm. Found a new Apartment and am breaking our lease to move into a nicer area. So the ZJ will be my moving vehicle this weekend!

Pulled the front DS and found that the double cardan is actually causing about 80% of what I thought was my pinion bearings. They are still bad but with the front shaft pulled its far less noise. SO i ordered everything to get it done including the centering yoke and rubber cup, all 3 spicer joints, along with a u bolt yoke conversion alljeep.com had for $6. Until then i am kind of enjoying this whole 2wd thing people have been telling me about

Rust free body and only a couple scratches. In Indiana it's hard to find a Jeep that you don't see the ground while driving (Street Dept. Loves Salting). All the power options work and it has a aftermarket CD Player. New tires, Detailed, and I liked the look of it (Red with grey trim). It runs great and the dealer's love there mark up.

On another note my 91 Jeep Wrangler Sahara only cost 1200.00 which was a steal. Win some, lose some. I'm happy

It's post processed. Taken with a Nikon D300s and a 10-24 F2.8 lens.

I added a full size spare.
