Installed new ignition coil and wire, and filled up the washer fluid and blinker fluid of course.. That bottle is hard to find, has to use my metric screwdriver.

Just a little tune-up--replaced spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, and air filter.

Advance Auto didn't have a Mopar oil filter in stock, so the oil change will have to wait until tomorrow.

Also emptied the passenger side headlamp of all the water. Apparently, it's not sealed properly.

Re-secured the console surround/vent assembly. There were NO screws. Had to find some pan-head screws at Home Depot that were a close-enough fit. Also, I glued the broken plastic back together. Fun stuff.

Tomorrow, I'm gonna try and find her a door.

Put mine up for sale.

Don't want to get rid of it, but the PO turned this thing into a giant money pit when he took short cuts for all the repairs. Either going to end up with a Ram 5 speed or a platinum 5.9.

Ugh I know what you mean about shortcuts. Luckily, it doesn't look like this Jeep has had too many repairs, or at least, none that were done by amateurs. The only things are the radio, which isn't mounted to any hardware at all (and was only held in place by shoprags), the door (welded the latch back into the sheetmetal; welds failed), and the wheels/tires. (Undersized tires on Land Rover Freelander wheels, which were gouged with an angle grinder instead of properly balanced)

Seems like a fair bit, but my old 200SX... Literally half the bolts on the engine and transmission were missing.

My lights are held in by dry wall screws, let's just stop the list there.

My PO did a hack job on any repair that was done.. But I take that as a challenge lol. But, they're not that major of issues

Half the screws in the 200's interior were wood screws the PO'd just tapped in willy-nilly.

For some reason there are a bunch of random, small bolts dug into my front bumper on the ZJ. Damnedest thing, really. They're barely long enough to punch through the plastic, and they don't GO anywhere.

Glebe st. it is an actual street that is unmaintained and dirt. Will come up on google or gps. I wouldn't go out there without some one that knows the trails.

That crew cab long bed 7.3 has a 4 inch lift and mili 37s and the hole has no hints to say its there and it is in the middle of the main trail.

Mine was the same, but it turned out to just be the rubber ring around the actual bulb.


OT: 200 mile cruise today. Oil pressure sending unit seems to be acting up, and squeaking from front passenger wheel. Not sure what that is. Apart from that, everything was good
