I hate u-joints in axle shafts, bit I'm going to use them for the time being, since I probably won't have time to swap out to my cv shafts.
It needs to be swapped out ASAP, since the DS shock mount rusted completely off the axle yesterday.... And the PS spring perch is collapsing too

Salt destroys things quicker than people think about it.

Yesterday, new rear Moog sway bar bushings went on, today...new front sway bar bushings and links! Amazing what a change some bushings can make in the ride and handling.
Nice

You're not kidding!!
Last month at work I replaced a set of steel wheels on a 2009 Toyota Camry because 2 out of 4 of them were rusted to the point they were leaking air through the wheels... yes.... a 2009... only had 65,000mi on it....

I really wish they would skip the salt and just run straight sand, but God forbid if you had to slow down when driving in the winter up here.
Even worse for vehicles is the liquid calcium chloride on the highways, which the state "claims" that they don't use...

I also found a spot on the driver's rear "frame" rail that I poked my finger through...
When the weather warms a little, it will be time to break out the angle grinder, the 1/8" steel, and the welder

I had to end up crushing my trooper that i had because the liquid salt brime destroyed my frame and body mounts. Everytime i went wheeling my whole front end would bounce up and down and i ended up putting 2 radiators in because of it.

Replaced my water pump today , was easier than I though it would be. Gonna attempt to fix the broken black wire in the drivers door jamb to fix my windows. The wires corroded now so I believe it's pretty much useless. I believe I'll have to take out the harness and put a complete new wire in. :

Water pump is an easy job to do. Wiring on the other hand sucks.

More snow in Northern Indiana!

Went to my place of employment to pick up some clearance tools I've been watching, while working. I ended up helping an idiot co-worker remove his newer AWD Mitsubishi Endeavor from a snow pile that he apparently "didn't see" while leaving for break. I asked him if he was pretending that he owned a Jeep.

Then I drove to a town about 30 minutes away to take the girlfriend out for her birthday; the trip wasn't all that bad even with the drifting. I stopped by the local Harbor Freight and Rural King to shop for a recovery strap. I ended up choosing a 4" 30' recovery strap from Rural King with loops on both ends.

Drove it to look at a low mileage WK Overland. It ran better on the way home. I think she's insecure...

My ZJ has never been stuck, it was just taking a break from being so awesome!
