Today my ZJ made me late for work....
It was rain/freezing rain last night and then it dropped to about 20 degrees overnight.
Everything was frozen up and it took quite a bit of force to push in the door handle button, but it opened. The door was frozen shut, so I tugged it open and got in.
When I went to shut the door, it bounced back open...
After about 25 minutes of swearing, smacking the door in random places, and hoping the heat now coming from the defrost vents would help thaw it out that it finally dawned on me to remove the plug on the side of the door and work the linkage free with a screwdriver. It was frozen pretty well...
Freed it up and went on my way. Punched in at work at 7:17. Good thing I only live 6 miles from work!

Sprayed some pb in at work to lube it up. Hopefully that will work for a while.

New 2 1/4 downpipes, cutout, collector, high flow cat, magnaflow, and Kolak tail pipe; all 3". Sounds great and the motor feels good. New timing this Friday!

Yeah those are 33's. lol Really need adjustable arms.. However no point since I'm hoping to go long arm in the next couple months.


Also side note/OT, these Hankooks are actually pretty quiet for a MT. Didnt really spin that much on the slicker roads. Pretty good traction in 2wd through the 2 inches of snow in my yard. I'm happy with them thus far.

Mine sits about the same with 4.5 and 33's. I trimmed the sharp corners off the end of the rockers and called it a day.

They'll move back a bit as the suspension compresses, so it should clear fine.

Heat problems, 97 zj

I flushed my heat core, some dirty water came out, not much solid particulate. swapped the heater hoses for the heater core, reversing the flow. Might help in the short term. No stellar immediate results.

It looks like the agenda is now to replace the thermostat, then the water pump, and then the blower motor resistor, and check behind the glove box for burned wire connection (blower motor doesn't work on high), then do a prestone flush.

Bad idea, the hoses flow in the direction they do for a reason. Fill from the bottom, return from the top. Stops air bubbles from getting into the system just like the engine radiator. Switch them back to avoid problems.

Thats a bad idea switching them around like that. You wont have any heat because the core wont heat up because the water is flowing backwards. About the only way that would be good is to flush it if you dont run it too long like that.
