Changed my transfer case, and new u-joints in the front drive shaft. Relocated my charcoal canister, and installed my $10 oem tow hooks I picked up at a U-pull-it!

Dang man, that sucks. I know how it feels for it to be sitting though. My tranny has been out since March this year, haven't been able to drive it since. But, on the bright side, I find out today if we can get the money to fix her

last coats on the 5.9 rims

I made more of the project than it had t be but I wanted them shiny and durable. I may put one more coat of clear. Used rustoleum wheel paint charcoal and clear. Six coats of clear which amounted to about 10 cans. I found if you used the can much past the halfway point the spray pattern became too irregular.

I stared at it and wished that I could figure out if the rims are bent or if the tires are out of round...

Dang that sucks. When I get the jeep lifted, I'm going through everything with new fluids and such. Oil (hasn't been changed ina LONGGG time, wondering if I might need a putty knife to get it out ) diffs (front and rear), and anything else that requires fluid. (minus the tranny and case considering the rebuild shop will take care of that)
