Yup turns out my cat is hollow. Lol

Funny cuz the same guy installed it a year ago. He thought he was gonna get an extra 300 bucks. Too bad I still had my receipt. Lol he was pretty upset trying to think of every reason it was my fault. It was pretty funny how much his mood changed when he found out he was doing it almost free. Haha

Redid my exhaust to where it exits before the rear tire. Also hoping to wire all my lights up tonight.

Passed California emissions. Had me scared for the last few weeks.

Stupid smog tests.

Going to look at a 98 ZJ Laredo 5.2 Quadratrac with 140K this weekend. Anything watch for on those? Not familiar with the V8 Jeep engines, had a straight 6, sold it and kicking myself in the *** for it now. The guy selling the 5.9 decided he was going to keep it. So no go on that one.

Cleaned my niner, inside and out during lunch, then took some pictures.





Also, put some new shoes on my wife's ZJ over the weekend.

The pinion yoke might be messed up someway causing the new seal to instantly tear. I've seen it happen. A new yoke is about $50.

On topic, I passed my emissions today. I figured it would pass since there aren't any warning lights illuminated. I've also been seriously considering putting it up for sale and getting back into finishing up my car. I figure the money from the ZJ could easily finish my car and leaver with some leftover cash.

Lotta mods! CRAZY mud! I scoped it but saw no pics of interior bedliner...am I missing something?

@MUN1674 - right on! Keepin those mod'd interiors pourin in! Leather LTD seats with bedliner interior could actually be really *****in in my Blackbird someday... I don't know if I have the cojones to pull that off tho...

Still no leaks in my drive to work today... shop owner said to pull it in & they'll put it up & the hoist & try to point out what they think they saw but honestly, I'm startin to really think they're full of pooooop.

Doesn't look like my elec. WJ fan is going to arrive before Saturday, so I guess that mod is another week out.

Not all today but over the past week I got a ton of things done.

Got a new bumper cover put on because my original was cut up by the PO. Also put factory fogs in with my own switch. And I swapped on a back hatch with the window that opens. Love that thing so far. Installed some 100w KC's on a Carr light bar (don't really like it, just tempory). And tomorrow I am gonna insulate the whole interior with some HomeDepot U-Seal and the Reflectix roof insulation.
