I got my brand new front tow hooks from Rugged Ridge delivered to my house for $80 shipped


Yesterday off of Craigslsit I bought a frotn skid plate for $20.





Then was searching on Craigslist again, found a WJ intake with the TB, fuel rail, fuel injectors and sensors all for $20. The intake is in rough shape. I'm going to soak the intake and tb in a parts washer with degreaser and clean them. Then I am going to media blast the intake and possibly the TB.

Here are some pics of the intake. Are the little nipples on the back side in pictures 2 and 3 supposed to be bent down like that?

We do work by appointment though so you'd have to call in. The shop is Global Auto and the number is 574-268-1469
I'm going to give the shop a call in a little bit. It's only about two hours from here. It's worth the drive, I think, to save a little on the alignment. According to Google Maps, it's 87 miles. 174 miles @ 14 MPG, if I can manage to hold that while I'm on 30 going about 55 the whole way, should cost me around $45. Even if it is a few $$$ more than going to a local shop, I get to take a nice drive, weather permitting, and meet someone from the forum, if you're working there today.

Fail. I needed it today and the first open time for an alignment is tomorrow @ 2:30. If I didn't need it so badly and my first day of my last semester of 7 years of college wasn't tomorrow, I'd be all over that. Oh well, next time. Thanks though.

Finally back into a zj its been about 5 months since i had to sell my last jeep. So i was just browsing craigslist one day and found a zj for 600 bucks so i bought it. Runs like a champ all it needs is a headliner and a rear hatch. So stoked to start a new build

Definitely working lol. As well as searching for a WJ intake manifold at work bahaha.

Ya, sorry about the scheduling, we've been busy lately. Just thought I'd try to help even if it is 2 hours away.

Hey, busy is good. The busier you are, the more money you should be making, right?

Agreed. But is that $750 to buy it, or spent on it?

Front right wheel bearing.

Pretty easy job! I found it much easier to replace the hub assembly than the bearing itself. I love that about this truck. My other cars are a pain to swap bearings in and they're much more expensive for the hub assembly. No win-win there!
