Did a Flush with Prestone super radiator cleaner (the stuff you leave in for 3-6 hrs).
Water came out pretty clean, I should be happy, but im actually a little dissapointed.

Investigated a clunk in my steering and determined i need new tie rod ends... wish i had the money to do the IRO lift and OTK steering... probably just replace with Autozone rod ends for now... In more fun news... got around to adding some of the WARN decals i received:

Or sway bar bushings or track bar ball joint... as I have discovered all can create a clunk or pop in the steering

Yea... I know i need sway bar bushings... but i also know that noise and this one is different. I am pretty sure its tie rod ends cause when I have the jeep sitting parked and turn the wheel to the left while looking at my driver's side wheel i can actually see it "jump" a little when the clunk happens... so i'm pretty sure its that tie rod end that is bad... Will probably replace them all since i will need an alignment anyway... the jeep itself has 230K on it and i have no idea how old the tie rod ends are... (I bought the jeep with 222K on it)

looked for WJ seats. found a good set of cloth ones. Guy wanted 100 apiece. I about croaked. Just so you know, the cloth seats aren't much better than zj seats. The leather ones are much better. No other junkyard in town had seats. Lame Sauce!

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
