I've had to use an air hammer twice on my ZJ. Once was for those stubborn bushings and the other was to remove the fan clutch.

The Standard Mopar Product O2 sensors are good right?

Local auto store carries some for like 40 bucks each.

Finished the HiLift mount brackets I added to the roof rack light bar I made.
It sits flat on the rack, and pulls down to this position for easy access.
IT DOES take two hands to bring the jack to this position, but it returns to the roof with one hand.



Also mounted, but didn't wire, the reverse lights that will reside on this rack as well.

Last but not least, I finally got around to installing the Hidden Hitch I got from the JY for $20.
Stuck my D-ring mount in it, fer the hell of it.

It doesn't look it, but there's a little over 2" of clearance between the jack and the glass.
It has a big-*** stopper welded on to it to make it stop where it is. It's not gonna be dangerous to the glass at all.
I over built it, just for that reason.
The places I wheel it are way more dangerous to the glass than my jack mount is....

Installed my new RC X-flex front LCAs. I'm now really glad I bent one of my old LCAs wheeling last weekend, as I realized that the bushings in my cheap stock replacement arms (Moog, IIRC) are utterly destroyed. One of them had a 1/4" of play in the bushing due to the sleeve having separated Amazingly, there were no symptoms of this other than a slight clunk I hadn't found yet (still drove fine and tracked straight).

The new arms are good so far and they ride nicely (rubber bushing at axle end, flex joint at the body end).

Anything close/touching is dangerous. Doesn't matter how well you built it. You hit something at any spend and it will most likely break the glass.

I don't get it, but if it works for you, great! I fit my 48" between the hatch and my 33" spare In the stock location. Outside is bad for them where I live.

I don't think it rides that way. It pivots to that position I think. A cpl better pics would be cool, not much detail.
