Took my tube doors off and threw the normal ones back on. Then Wednesday going to pick up my new MTs, and then Thursday making a JY run to grab a 8.8 w/ 3.73s, and a LSD for a whopping $68 lol

OT: spent $21 at the power wash getting all the mud off from everything. I think that's the cleanest it's been underneath since new.
Yeah. I was for a pretty good majority of the parade.

Got my front brake hoses changed. Started to do the 3 rear brake hoses, but ran into more issues with the line nuts being froze on. Rear brakes are working fine so just gonna leave them for now. Bleed the brakes with Phoenix brake bleeder, but they're still spongy so gonna do it the old fashioned way with the wife in the next day or two. The front brakes aren't dragging anymore though!

disassembled the front bumper,lights,and grill waiting for my Rugged Ridge Tow Hook assemblies that I bought on Ebay for $99 shipped. On a side note... anybody know if only the dealer carries the little plastic clips on the back of the headlight assemblies? Apparently 20 years makes them brittle

I discovered a huge puddle on the RH floor after a T-Storm!! She has given me 5 MO's of carefree driving. Upon start-up, window switches didn't work, then they did, but the rear wiper stopped, then started, the doors locked by themselves. Gotta love it, my ZJ is on LSD!!

Installed my wideband O2 setup and started thinking about prepping it for a wheeling trip in a bit under 2 weeks.

Swapped the '94 ZJ power steering pump with the metal pulley and bracket over to the 5.9... Sucked as much of the fluid out of the reservoir as I could, filled it back up so I could do it again in a few days... Installed the auxiliary transmission cooler, still don't understand why this isn't standard equipment, regardless of the upgraded radiator design... Hit the bottom, front corners of the rockers with a wire brush and then some POR 15... Sprayed the radiator and the other stuff up front with black Rustoleum to keep them from standing out... Waiting on my cat. to get here so the 5.9 won't attract so many eyes & ears so easily... Still debating on a 3.5" lift and 32's with a regear or just remain stock with 30's...

Did a little clunk inspection and found out my AWESOME adjustable Rough county rear control arms (both uppers AND lowers) have a **** load of play, and, under load, allows my pinion angle to alternate by about 10 degrees, PLUS my rough country sway bar discos allows a full 1/2" of sway bar travel.

Looks like I'll have to do some welding and turn these into "fixed length" control arms and sway bar "links".


Lesson learned:
Spend the money for IRO, Ironman, or RE, because at some point, you'll be sorry you didn't.
