I'm gonna drive 'er about 1500 miles here in about 3 days. There is a stretch between Broadus, MT and Belle Fouche, SD that is about 800 miles. You have no choice but to only stop for gas, because there is NOTHING ELSE to stop for haha

I tried replacing the front LCA I bent last wheeling trip with a new one for 1aauto, figured since I got the front ca's from them a few months ago when I did the whole jeep it would be easy.

Wrong, new ca has the wrong width at the frame side mount, found an o'reilly that had one in stock, same problem. Ended up pulling from the niner, it's not going anywhere anyway.

Various fluids, lubricants, and other grime, are the reason I started wearing latex gloves when I work on parts that need to be lubricated, or which are covered in brake dust or lube grime. It's so awesome not having black-stained hands that smell like industrial chemicals for days on end.

Maybe you should look into it, EJ. PB Blaster may smell bad, but as long as you don't get it on you, it's damn effective at getting bolts loose.

They don't give to much info, do they they still fold away under impact? And do they seem ad sturdy? That's all I really care about.

Just when everything is running great and a new steering gear is in I discovered coolant leaking out of the water pump weep hole.

Wouldn't be a ZJ unless the hood was up once a week.
