Today I dropped my fuel tank, and cleaned it out also changed the fuel pump. I did this in hopes to stop my stall at idle problem, but it did not help. Guess I will continue keeping my rpm's up while the car is not moving, so it does not stall. At least my Jeep is finally moving again. Tomorrow I am attacking the catalytic converter. When changing this should I replace the 02 sensor also, or does not it not matter.

I'd do it. They're supposed to be replaced at regular intervals anyways

Changed out all the bushings the dude at the 4 wheel shop said were toast. Took er for a test drive and everything was feeling good and tight and I even had half a smile on my face and then....... death wobble. Got home and did some thinking and looking around then then took some measurments and it looks like the passenger side of the front axle sits about a half inch further back in the wheel well then the driver side does. Gonna see if I can make an appt to get her aligned and hope that takes care the problem, if not then I am completely out of ideas.

I'm thinking about using black plasti-dip on my wheels. Here's a pic from the Photoshop thread.

How it is now




And with the wheels flat black



I bought an almost new set of snow tires in 265/70/17 on some suburban wheels. Tomorrow I'm picking up another set of Moab's to mount them on. Then I should be able to sell the Tahoe wheels and tpms sensors, and pay for the Moab's and mount/balance. I'll install the front shocks too, if I have time. I sprayed them with PB blaster today.

My TYCs came with all the clips, including the one the rod goes in. I had a set I got off eBay that didn't come with them though. They were some brand that began with a "V".

So I can't relieve enough tension on it to completely remove it, or get it lined up enough to completely re-install it. It's just hanging there 80% of the way in, unable to come out the other end because it's not lined up with the mounting bracket. Frustrating as all hell and I really don't want/can't afford to call a mobile mechanic to handle what should be a relatively easy job. Anyone know any tips/tricks that might be of use? Where and how high did you support the engine to allow the through bolt to simply slide in/out of place? If I could just figure out how to achieve that I'd be golden.
I would loosen or remove the bolts from the cross member to t-case and lift a bit. Sounds like your Jus not straight. Did THAT mount get changed?

Mine was on the engine hoist with a leveler on it when I did mine. Made it cake!

It's probably the foam seal around the A/C drain where it meets the firewall. Give it a few liberal smearings of RTV everywhere you can in there and it'll probably stop leaking.

I think the silver looks better. Black wheels on a dark Jeep with blackwall tires is just too much black with nothing to break it up.

Use a metal coat hanger to fish it out with.

Put some zip ties on my sway bar disco pins so they will stop hitting my springs.



And put on my Bilstein 5100 front shocks.
