Took her off pavement to test the discos a little bit, not much to flex on where I was though but I could tell the difference for sure.

And then came home and had a peak under the Jeep and noticed the hard brake line leaking at or near where it connects to the rubber line in the back. So now that whole line needs replacing from ABS pump to just before rear axle, friggin rust...

i may look at adding a 160 amp for some extra power
Same I wanna add a 160 also keep my current one that'll be dedicated to the car battery and everything else as for the 160 will just be for amps and such can also step up to a16v system that way

You have to remove pretty much the exact same stuff to replace the bypass hose that you have to remove to replace the water pump. All of it is a PITA. I'd just do it and beg forgiveness for the extra purchase

The upper and lower hose are a good idea too since you're in the neighborhood and you have the system drained.

Motorcycle jacks are good for more then Motorcycles

I looked over the EVAP system and I think I found the cause for the P1494 error code, the vacuum line going to the intake is barely on. The elbow ends are shot on the hose.
I pulled it off and stuck a piece of tubing on it I had laying around till I can find something to replace it.

Installed the hack n tap today and swapped my front ds to the rear until I get to a junk yard and pick up another front. Tires are a little noisier than I thought they would be though. So nice being able to drive it again!

Lol I know right. It was actually useless for my bike because the engine case hung lower than the frame. Makes a much better tranny jack.
