It sounds like its a diode in the alt going out. Im still running my factory alt and ive got no problems running my headlights all 4 top mounted 100 w each fog lights wipers and heat if need be. But when i kick my efan on high with everything else on it drops my voltage down to about 10 1/2 or 11

Thats why the niners came with 150 amp alternators. Chances are your JY alternator is no good either way.

I changed my oil today and greased everything up front. My swaybar bushings and discos really needed it. I also snapped my cold finger in the snap ring. I really love the way that feels. I also found my tie rod end on my draglink has a torn boot at the pitman arm. Awesome. I have one somewhere around here, I'll just have to find it.

Today was a good day! Ok so got the new fuel pump in, tank mounted, skid plate mounted, rear bumper on, mud flaps back on, ran the jeep for a little while. It burnt oil at first but then again hasn't run for 3 months, but that was only briefly, and before that, 2 years. Got to drive it about a half mile and my dad did about a half mile too on almost no gas... less than 4 gallons I think. My uncle towed it to my house from his house. Overall a great day.

Coil perches dont go on the truss, again, make one. Take your axle out, cut up some metal, weld it on. Its not hard to do, takes time but not hard. Generally a rear truss just goes over the pumpkin it doesnt run the full length of the axle. No need.

Thanked it for saving my life after I hit some ice this afternoon and lost control. Spun across the road into oncoming traffic, struck a big white pick-up truck but I'm not sure when. Only know that because I saw him parked way up the hill from where my ZJ finally came to a rest. I Had to have struck guard rails 3 times. There's damage on every side, the worst being on the passenger side and the rear. It looks like she's gone, but if there's any fitting final act for a Jeep it's to take a beating so it's owner can walk away unscathed . Pics will follow.

Make something like that or buy that. Just make sure to use the proper welding rod when welding the truss to the diff. Steel doesnt like being welded to cast iron.

Better braking in rear. Feels more equal than front heavy now.
