Good day of wheeling today - knocked a post extension loose on the right rear, so it's making a bit of a racket when I hit bumps. Other than that, some new rock rash on the sliders and a little bit on the front diff cover.

I'll have to wait for pics from Arlo and some other others on the trail. My camera died after about 1 pic

Lets see I installed wagoneer steering box minus the 4th hole needed a. Sleve for the bolt there is no folded metal(frame)there to mount it steering brace still works with this box so I see no real need for another bolt, I like this box a lot better then them 2 other durango boxes just feels stronger. got nuts welded to the steering stops free thanks to local weld shop also installed my rear flares and did a bit of wheelin today

Put the 3" lift that's been in my garage for 2 months. New track bars, fog, cleaned the head lights, trimmed the front bumper and took off cladding. All in all not too bad of a day.. Also started welding my new exhaust together. That goes on sometime this week.

Got these today...



I've wanted cloth pretty much since I got the Jeep. It was a bear to find power cloth. I ended up deciding I would rather have manual cloth because it's less to break as it gets old. I went to two JYs today and I ended up getting these for $40 a seat. $160 + tax wasn't too bad for them. They're in incredible shape. The driver's seat has a little wear on it but it's nothing major. The other seats look like new. The yard I got these from had a ZJ with power front seats. They were $50 a seat instead of the $40. I was pretty torn on getting the power instead of the manual, but I talked myself into the manual. I think I made a good decision. I shampooed them as soon as I got them home and I'm going to be installing them tomorrow.

I also scratched the tint on the back window with a bracket from one of the back seats.

The yards around here are all about $35-$55 per seat. I think I did alright for prices in my area.

And the pump is $30 for a melling from oreilly. Simple things like that make it easier on you down the road.
Yeah i should of thought of that ahead in advance... I ordered the parts from rockauto.com I'll just go to the local parts store and pick those parts up. Will start working on the ZJ this weekend again.
