Pulled the headliner out to re-do and took a whack at my sunroof. Removed the motor, and the small black box that contains a small circuit board. I re-soldered ALL of the points on the board, and it still did not work. Tomorrow I will connect some 12v to it, to see if it is the motor that is the issue.

We run the Discount Tire version of that tire, the ATP, in that size in my wife's WJ. We've been really impressed with them so far and they've done excellent in the snow too.

BOT: Finally started tearing into the dash to do the heater core. Got the entire dash out in about 1.5 hours. Tomorrow I'll remove the HVAC assembly and drain yhe coolant.

"Stock" for 96+ on a 94. PO put them on, same as the lift. I'm 90% sure I'm probably going to have to use spacers

Getting it apart that quick makes me happy! I've gotta do a heater core and an evap core in the next couple weeks when I have time.

Yeah, I was really surprised how straight forward it was. The hardest part was getting the bolts that hold the dash to floor because the carpet was in the way. The other problem I had was when it came time to pull the dash out getting the wiring harness disconnected, along with the fact the dash itself is pretty heavy.

Heater core should be here Wednesday, tonight when I pull the rest of the system apart, I'll check my condenser, but at the very least I'll plan on replacing the Receiver/Drier.

New axle side lca bushings in the front, new cam bolt, and welded a washer in place as a temp fix for my rear track bar mounting hole being wallowed out.

My jeep no longer tries to change directions above 60. Yay.

Last weekend I got all new front brakes and door clips for the front two plus hatch. Oh and a water pump I have yet to install.

I still have to go out and figure out why my tc is leaking..
