Welcome to the good side Grant!



I realigned the IRO OTK steering on the ZJ for my trip to Lake Tahoe on Wednesday.

Nice find! It'll make a great DD--especially in the winter.

Fixed the rear wiper motor. Vice grips, some wd-40, and some muscle got it moving again.
Found out that the tranny had no fluid I could see on the dipstick. Sounds like the 46re is getting a rebuild.
Buffed the headlights. Much better the passenger light wasnt even attached to one of the adjusters.

So far on the rebuild list: 46re, overdrive unit, and rear end. Luckily dad knows how to do these sorts of things. Haha

Ps. Marveled at it's 5.9l of awesomeness.

Went to install my 2" coil spacers last night and OME Long Shocks. Rear end went in like clockwork but the front end was a PITA...Got everything installed and when I went to re-install my control arms the driveline drop out of the transfer case...needless to say the driveline is still on the ground...now waiting for some additional hands to complete the project and get her rolling again.

Finally got around to replacing the hatch struts. No more getting bonked in the head!



I also greased all of the door/hood/hatch hinges with white lithium.
Think I'll run her up to the car wash and get rid of all that grime and road salt.

heres some pics.
i cut the hole in the tunnel for the shifter based upon what others had done. and the hole is way too large. so i will be "patching" that hole with some sheet metal i have laying around

not bad placement and feels good

but i have to clearance my dumb center console so i can get 1st, 3rd, and 5th gear(thats neutral in the picture)

crossmember bolted up to frame it fit damn near perfectly

overall i feel like i beasted today. have to get the rear ds lengthened tomorrow and pick up new starter bolts and finish odds and ends and she'll be good to go. holy **** i cant wait to drive this thing again
