She's looking good. I know it may sound weird, but everytime I drive mine now that I've adjusted my linkage and re-torqued my vibrations are lessoning. Maybe the u-joints just weren't used to the angle after I lifted her.
Back on topic, I bought a coolant flush kit, plugs, & wires. Have to get my diff oil changed, and trim up my fenders. Have my first trail ride with my ZJ on the 15th. Susan G Komen crawl for the cure. Couldn't think of a better time to break in my ZJ than on a save the ta ta's trail ride.
