I hi-lined my jeep today, it looks great. I also fixed my overheating problem by changing out a broken pully.

New CV axle on L, new hubs R & L. New bearings L R, new axle and bearings R R. She rolls quiet now but still has a stubborn undiagnosed misfire.

Cliffs Insane Terrain but I've heard it's not really for stock/mildly modded vehicles.

Cliffs is awesome. Been there many times. I highly suggest going. We should get a day planned to all go. Get a big group together.

I'd be game for that. Do you think a ZJ with what's in my current info would make it? I'm still running 29" ATs.

Fully ready for its mot inspection on Monday. The awful rattle I've been chasing on the front was a steering stabilizer bolt mount. That's fixed and the terrible pulsing in the brakes that I really thought was front disc warpage turned out to be rear disc instead. So new discs and pads all round should last a while. Repacked all the steering joints with grease and changed the oil and filter. Just needs a wash n wax.

Updates from what happened on page 471: Well got must of the damage popped out so thats good. But found out my rear axle is bent so i need to get a new one. Which means since im already down there doing that, i might as well go ahead and put my 3.5" lift on. Then i will do the body work (paint, etc.) and buy some rims and tires. Thing that sucks is this is probably a month or two down the road so not having a vehicle for that long will be depressing, lol.

Cool. Let's try to get a future date set up so I can make sure I'm free during that time.

I'll set the scene...my phone rings last night and my son says "I need help I've wrecked my Jeep!" my first thoughts and comments are of course "are you ok?" and "do you have anybody with you?", "Yes I'm ok and no I'm by myself". He tells me its bad and the Jeep is on its side in the ditch. We live in the country and its all backroads to the house and lots of woods and open fields and deer. Some of the ditches are deep and wide enough that you could end up, upside down. I get there and his Jeep is in a ditch on the drivers side and the passenger side wheels are off the ground. We got it set back on 4 wheels and hooked the chain to the front, as I started to pull him out, he was able to pretty much drive up out of the ditch. He drove it home with no problems, the only thing he noticed it wanted to pull to the right a bit. I wish I had taken pics of it last night but wasn't thinking. It was raining and sleeting (trying to freeze) and 5 or 6 deer come across the road he tapped the brakes and swerved to not hit the deer, and slid off in the ditch. Here are the pics from this morning.
from the front

from the side

and the ditch


The fender and door will have to eventually be replaced but we were able to get the dents pulled so the door will open and close. Headlight and corner marker will have to be replaced. He's been looking at new lights anyways so now is his chance. I have a windshield coming Monday ($160 bucks installed), and the mirror will have to be put back on.
As you can see in the last pic the mirror is laying there unbroken, what happened is it has just popped off. My question is can the mirror be put back together from where it has been separated. I'm going to give it a shot and try rewiring so I can save the mirror.
His pride is hurt more than anything and he was scheduled to have pics taking Monday at school cause he had been picked for "Top of the Lot". I told him to rescheduled the shoot for Tuesday and if anybody ask just tell'em those are wheeling scars, LOL. Sorry for the long post but just wanted to share a jeep story.

Good thing he wasn't hurt badly in that. The Jeep looks like it came alright too for being on its side.
