I'm also disabling the security because my Fob decided to stop working so my jeep won't even start. That's a magical endeavor to try while it's been storming all day and night. It hurts my heart to have some muddy clay and not be able to tear it up

Talk about not tearing it up. With all the work I am doing to my house my ZJ remains a permanent driveway decoration. Still working on the floor and all the other stuff I've put off for the past 8 years. Started fabricating a new shift knob over the past few days. It's going to be sweet! I hope. Lol.

I handled that with my shocks till I get straps. I'm actually thinking about a chain from my upper shock mount to my 4 link mount.

That sucks, I've had nothing with problems with my 44a ebrakes, thats why I'm running an electric line lock for the ebrake with the 8.8

Not my ZJ but i rebuilt my dads TJ's front driveshaft. As i was finishing up and going to grease the last u joint, i leaned it against one of the engines in my garage and knocked a cap down the intake manifold...

Got it out tho with all the needle bearings intact.

I broke my D44a ebrakes a while ago. I was rushed while towing someone out and left the e brake engaged. 4lo and reverse with a lot of throttle and snap. Still not sure what broke, i havent even inspected it yet

Drove it. Turned off while pulling out of my driveway. Restarted it, and "drove it like i stole it". That'll teach her to be a beach.



will also be starting my Front Tow Hook install/fab. Making the mounting points all from 1/4" steel plate, angle iron and channel iron. Got plenty to make something STRONG.

removed my oil filter adatper rather than replace the 3 O-Rings in the adapter...with the help of this write-up and some research on this board making sure it'd work for a ZJ, the project was a breeze!
