The Jeep decided it would turn something as simple as retorquing the differential covers(1500 miles after new lubelocker gaskets) into a broken bolt on the rear one that I get to drill out this weekend now. O well at least the little teeny leak is gone

Went on a 200 mile roundtrip drive yesterday to see some family. Drove real nice. Aside from the death wobble a few times. In due time... Also managed to get some of the stock 4WD shift linkages off in preparation for the new modified linkages. Also got a little extra cash to change differential fluid, transmission fluid, and transfer case fluid. Hopefully I get time during the week to get it all done...

Went to put some stuff in it after my lunch break at work and got a strong smell of gas. Sure enough looked back at my gas tank and it had just sprung a pinhole sized leak. Probably lost about a gallon between then and when I got home. Patched it up with quik steel for the moment, seems like it'll hold up just fine until I can get around to replacing the tank. Just when I thought almost everything was fixed, the list gets one item longer.

The wife & me pulled out the headliner from inside the cab ! All we did was pull off the old material & vacuumed off the old spongy stuff. Looks all right, we just left it bare !!

Fixed one vacuum leak... Only to discover an extremely loud and obnoxious whistling noise. It sounds like its probably on the passenger side, because it almost sounds like its in my glove compartment. Sounds a little bit like turbo whistle haha just more annoying! It tracks with the amount of throttle I give it until I hit about 70, when I THINK it stops. Odd........

Installed a new radiator, hoses, serpentine belt, water pump, thermostat, and thermostat housing. It probably too less time for them to build the whole damned Jeep

So it appears as if I will be pulling the tcase this weekend to get to the leaky seal. Until then I'll just top it off and continue leaking.
The new lca bushings helped a lot. I stayed on it till 90 this morning and it was smooth with no vibes or sways.

No joke....isn't it only like 35ft lbs for those bolts ..... Normally nowhere near enough to break a bolt
