Beautiful weather today

picked up a short pinion 06Tj 50kmile D30 3.73's for 50$. With the Ax15 Im hoping I'll be able to run Xj front Drive shaft so I wont have to get customs built everytime i need one. Spent the last hour getting a damn seized control arm bolt off it the sleeve for the bushing and bolt fused as one. Now to rip more crap out from under mine

I finished lining my skids today so they can finally go back on when I get a chance. I also bought oil to do a change and thought I had a filter at home... Well, so much for that. I don't have any filters left and I'm not going back to the store today to get a new one. I was also getting ready to dump the tranny fluid from my 242 that's sitting in my garage when I noticed that it was missing one of the bolts that mounts it to the tranny. I started a thread about fixing that so any help in that thread would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, and I've found that Rock Auto kicks ***.

How come the passenger tire looks like it's at much more of an angle when turned than the drivers side? Or is it just the picture?

Mostly the pic but my toe is off because the tie rod was bent, I'll adjust it when I'm closer to backing it out the door
