its a sealed and pressed assembly from the factory, although some will argue otherwise (one in particular), you are not supposed to repack/regrease the hub/bearing assembly on these. Thats why they are sold as an assembly.


On Topic

ontopic:
94- had a extremely loud whistling coming from the engine bay last night i tightened up the belt a little it stopped then started again. Was hoping it wasn't the water pump again, so I took the belt off to check it for play seemed good then spun the idler pulley there it was a locked up lower idler. So i figured why just replace one and did them both 15$ each. Then found a bad connection on the fog lights fixed that so they work.

93- use the rear hatch as cover from the rain while working on the 94 & topped off the washer fluid

Working on my Rock Sliders.

This rail is 1.25" X .120" wall thick DOM tubing with 1" X .25" flat bar welded to it for mounting to the pinch seam.
2 mounting plates have been added to the LA brackets where small pieces of tubing will be added for support.
Still have 3 more rails to add, one underneath and 2 on the outside.



When done these should work nicely when parking at the mall and someone throws open their door hitting my jeep!!!
We will see who's vehicle receives the most damage.

And you thought these where just for off-road.

That's on my list of future mods. There's nothing wrong with my 249 though, other than some leaky pinion seals. I have a hard time replacing something that's not broke. I did get a 242 bezel and shift plate at the JY for when I do the swap though.

They do come in handy for that reason. Some foolish woman parked to close to my old ZJ with Kevin's sliders and flung open the door while she was on her cell phone. Put a nice dent in her door. She was apologizing until I pointed out what she had done.

I carry a handheld OBD II reader in the back of my jeep, the less I have to carry the better! so I ordered a Garmin ecoRoute HD yesterday.
Only problem I see with the Garmin ecoRoute HD, the speed readout on it only goes to 100 mph. that's a little low for someone driving Niner!!

Lol. You have a Bluetooth Garmin gps I hope.

I'm about to take it out, I hope the speedometer is driven by gps, and not the speed signal. That would save my computer guy putting all the crap in mine for tires, gears, trans, and such. Plus getting a speed signal is gonna suck on a th350.
