Replaced my heater hoses Saturday and the receiver/drier to finally wrap up my heater core replacement. Replaced all the A/C o-rings as a preventative measure and flushed out all the A/C components. Attempted to pull a vacuum on the A/C and no dice. Did a little more digging and managed to find a nice sized hole in the bottom of my condenser. After a quick trip to the junkyard managed to find a nice used condenser for $20. Swapped out condensers real quick and tried to pull vacuum again, same thing, nothing.

Now I need to figure out where my leak is at, knowing my luck it will probably be in the evaporator core


His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff

Added more Freon to my AC system yesterday. Didn't even have enough for the compressor to run for more than 30 seconds at a time. Now it should be good for another month or two.

It could have been worse I guess. I was able to bring the top half of my tool box to it, so really it was like working at home.... just with a convenient store in my front yard.

With some fancy metalwork and a great deal of ingenuity, I mounted the rear bumper of an '05 wrangler to the front of my ZJ.
Backyard engineering at its finest!

I took the cross bars off my roof rails, shortened my rear lower control arms from 17.25-16 7/8" to reduce driveshaft vibration(it's better but not completely gone), tested out my front bumpstops, and measured for rear bumpstops. Here's a pic of the back tire stuffed.




My hockey pucks up front are working great with the factory bumpstop, and I have plenty of room now that I did some trimming and hammered the pinch seam flat.

Beat the crap out of it, and tested out my 4x4 finally since doing my transmission and transfer case swap.

So far everything is holding up minus a few leaks, but as of now they're not a big concern.
