Put the pup divider and stroller back in the cargo area. Made the wife happy to get them out of the living room.

Came out of our local mall today to find a stocker parked next to mine.

I cleaned out the rear of all random parts/tools, ordered an IRO adjustable rear track bar, and mocked up the IRO exhaust. Waiting for catalytic converter to be delivered.

Also cleaned up the bushwacker flares for the new owner. Selling tomorrow for $200. Decent deal for him, and now I'm down to $250 total purchase price of the ZJ. I'm ignoring the cost of new parts. Lol.



Bye by flares.

New Exhaust manifold, new driver side engine mount.

The old mount fell into 3 pieces when I removed it :P

Back in October, I fitted a new water pump - today it blew whilst at the top of a dune in the desert. I've got to get a new pump tomorrow morning and go back to rescue the GC.

It looks like the bearing failed and the wobble took out the seal.

Good thing you don't have a bunch of A-hole rednecks that will strip it and use it for target practice like we do out here.

No crap. If I mine broke down like that I would have to sleep in it to make sure no one stole anything and even then I'd be worried.

I said to my South African friend: "I wouldn't leave this overnight if it was in the UK - it would be stolen by tomorrow". He said: "In South Africa it would be stolen before you finished locking it!"

Yea, to hell with S Africa. It would probably be the police stealing it too. They would give you a good beating on top of it.

pulled my gas tank today. gave it a good cleaning and cleaned out the fuel strainer on the pump. How do long hairs get in there. Hmm???

also, fixed my problem of my cluster lights not working. after a bunch of diagnosing and checking, it was the wire that was bad. ran a new one, and now everything works...

I started to bedline my skids today. I've had them off forever. I got the insides done. That's what I really cared about anyway. With all the salt here in NW Indiana, I figure it's probably good to do that so they don't rust from the inside out. I've seen plenty of rusty skids on JY vehicles here and I don't want mine to end up rusty like that. I'm going to flip them over and finish them up tomorrow. I realize the possibility of hitting them and scraping off some of the liner, but I'll keep an extra can handy so I can always touch up the outsides.
