Changed the engineoil + oilfilter, changed the oil in the front and rear axle, changed the oil in the transfercase and replaced my almost rusted out fuelfilter.

Going to take it down to Rausch Creek for a weekend of wheeling, so I'll be putting the A/Ts on it tonight or in the morning and hopefully installing the gas tank skid that's sitting in my living room.

Put it on Mudclaws, painted the wheels and threw in new swaybar bushings.

Yeah, the coolant overflow goes threw the hole in the top of the passenger fender wheel...

Installed the new front rotors because the front passenger-side was warped. They were both fairly rusted around the vent areas anyway. No more wobble or shaking while braking, nice & smooth now ! ! Changed the oil with Mobil 1 Synthetic and Mopar filter...

How difficult was it to do your boots? I need to do the driver's side on mine still.

I split a bearing last time I removed a hub assembly. Luckily I had a spare.

Put a socket on the hub screws and hammer it, it will free the hub... you may wreck the socket but not the hub

Put two newish 31" Bfg a/ts on the back. Then took it 30 miles to the movies and on the way home the front end started making a whirring noise. I thought well ill check it out when i get home. About 3mi from home i hear a loud pop followed by loud whining, so i pull it over to the shoulder then at about 10mph the front end grenaded so i got a buddys truck and trailer, got it home then back off the trailer. So now i need a d30 3.73

Well yeah, but does the new boot just stretch over the end of the CV axle or do you split the CV joint? I've changed plenty of CV axles, but don't really want to spend $80 for a new one when a $15 boot kit will fix it. My CV isn't making any noise (yet) but I'd like to get that done before winter hits.

You have to split the CV.
