^^^ It's Silver touch up paint, actually. My wife's touch. I wouldn't have gone to the trouble since these wheels will be covered in mud most of the time.
What I WILL be doing to my ZJ today:
Trying to put on this T-case skid. Anyone know how it fits? Does it go on in place of the stock crossmember or beside it? I haven't had a chance to hold it up underneath to check it out yet.
The thingy where the blue arrow is, mounts to the stock cross member. The other option would be that skid set up replaces the cross member and where the blue arrow points is for the trans mount(doesn't look strong enough for that).
Only way to find out is to try to see where it fits.
Supposed to use nutserts in the frame rails, but that is usually really hard to do, but it is the correct way.
Self tappers in the thin unibody rails is a little weak.
Went to the doctor today because my throat is sore, my lymphnode on the right side of my neck is swollen to the size of a small cat or large hampster, and it looks like a head of cauliflour is growing out of my right tonsil. He gave me the next two days off and no further prescriptions I figured since I still had a lot of energy thanks to Monster's Irish Blend coffee and a 5 Hour Energy and as long as the pain was being numbed by motrin, muscle relaxers, and lortabs, I would swap my upper and lower ball joints. I headed to Autozone to check out their balljoint press then headed over to home depot to buy a couple box fans to fight off this 100+ degree heat. Got as far as loosening the right front caliper. Then my roomate came out into the garage and said she was going to meet her mom for lunch to take care of some tuition stuff for school and then got called in to work tonight, se she needed the Jeep.
