Check the valve cover. It tends to leak after some time, and it gets everywhere so it's hard to figure out where exactly it is coming from.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Got some sun so I mounted the roof basket on there.
Changed the oil
Rotated tires
Realized how bad the coolant is (really need to flush soon)
Ordered my new speedo gear and some OEM fog light brackets

New front calipers, new ball joints, Home DIY alignment, replaced my fan clutch, fixed a droopy headlight, and restored the body cladding. Oh and two of my local yards didn't have even one ZJ! I need to buy the LCA caster bolts, my early ZJ doesn't have the eccentric type bolts. I jammed on the brakes hard today and reset my caster.

@ upside, how did you do a DIY alignment? I will be fitting a 3.5" lift this weekend and would like to get it as close as before heading up to the shop to get it done.

Thanks

Drained some hot oil from the engine. Was overfilled and didn't have a big enough wrench, so I bought a cresent wrench. Glad I did. Those things come in handy!
