Finally bought my new fuel pump. Will be installed tomorrow. Planning to get alignment, brakes, complete fluid change, and possibly a new battery next week when my vacation pay comes in. Needing to get this thing back on the road!

Okay, so some of this didn't ALL happen today, but it was all done over the last few days and was basically done all at the same time, but I finally finished up today!

*IRO 2" BB
*IRO adjustable control arms - uppers & lowers
*IRO Adjustable Double Shear Track Bar
*Hellwig rear sway bar
*Addco front sway bar
*JKS quick disconnects
*Iron Man 4x4 Fab motor mounts & tranny mount
*IRO private label shocks (probably should have gone with Billsteins, but figured I could upgrade later if I was disappointed in the ride quality)

So far, loving it! Taking her out for a ride on trails tomorrow!

Will post pics tomorrow.

Well I did nothing to my ZJ today, but boy did it **** me. Doing 35 down a road when my back tire blew up on me. 100s of a-holes drove by when one nice fellow stopped to offer help. It was hot as hell outside and I changed the tire at an angle in the grass because there was no shoulder. After I changed the spare low and behold the sob was flat. So I guess today I cried in the heat while punching trees and attacking them with my big knife I keep in the car for my ZJ.

Poked around with a multimeter then hung my head in defeat as I can't reach the connector for the ckps to test for voltage.... No-starts suck and this one may be the death of the jeep. Might be more financially viable to scrap it and start anew on a 93 I spotted on kijiji

I just had to change the crankshaft sensor on my 4.0. If I had to do it again, I'd probably just burn this Jeep to the ground and buy a new one.

Of course it's easy for me to say that since I live in Texas where there are rust-free cars all around.

Bought a new craftsman 12 ton bottle jack for it. Easily the best tool I've bought all year! No more putting a floor jack on stacks of wooden boards to lift it.

Went to walmart....I mean JY, and pulled a mirror and vac resevoir for GF 's son. Saw some stuff I wanted for my ZJ but by that time it was too dang hot for me to stand there so I came home. Rotated tires in a pool of sweat and changed oil. Now all thats in my mind is MIC...MICHE....MICHELOB.....yeah thats the ticket.

And you have a 4.0 lol. Crankshaft sensor is the one I need to check that voltage is getting to but I can't get my hand back there on the 5.2

Didn't do anything to it. Didn't even get near it. Been cleaning the garage, but I did look at it a lot.
