Diff parts from drivetrain were "delivered", but for some reason it's set as signature required so Dad'll swing by on the way to work and get em'.

Dad got tranny parts to our transmission guy and he's gonna get stuff ordered/rebuilt. Cross your fingers we'll have that stuff back by Friday. (unlikely, but a guy can dream, right?)

Cleaned, replaced o-rings, pintile caps and installed new basket filters in my Bosch/ FMS 24# Injectors. hopefully I'll install them tomorrow.

Also installed a new AEM air hat, fixed a rattle in the dash and installed the XM Radio. and tightened another loose control arm bolt, this time with with a nylon lock washer and red locktite.

Oil change, it was 2 years overdue for it. (Been sitting for 2 years, I'm trying to recondition it.)

haha thanks man and yeah thats my bosses truck. back when i had my xj, i always used to park infront of the store on the snow banks close to straight up and down. customers loved it but my VP did not. i got yelled at and hadnt parked like that since. but i saw my boss parked on the snow bank since theres only like 3ft of parking space since we have so much snow so i had to park like that to show him up haha.

and on topic, i was driving mine to school today, it is slower with the 31s but not to bad. unlike my old 225/65/16s, i can do 1500rpm at 65mph where as with the old baby tires, it was cranking 2300rpm at 65. yay better mpgs

anyways, i was driving down a 4 lane road when i glanced 2 my left a little and saw a tire rolling my way flying across the intersection and a van dragging on its rotor. i slammed my brakes and the tire just barely missed me. it flew up and over a snow bank and landed on a parked cars hood and went through the windshield. luckily nobody was in the car. i would have stopped but i was late for school and had a test 1st class so i kept going. others stopped though. it was crazy haha.

Drew wires for my auxiliary lights, zip tied the rear hatch internal parts and hooked up a wire to open the lift gate from the inside.

Forced it to start and drive despite its hatred for single digit weather. Later on, once it was nice and warm and happy, I had my glass of V8 for the day and pushed the skinny pedal down hard.

I pulled the 231 case out that I installed last week and re-opened it to figure out why it wouldn't shift. Put it back together right this time so now we can call the 249 to 231 swap complete!!

I have my 231 in the garage waiting for the weather to break. I still need to score a rear driveshaft though.

Put on a new set of wild country tires (black side out), just slightly larger than stock. Thisis my 4th Jeep and 1st GC or ZJ and although I like it more than the others, I decided against spending $1K+ on tires and a lift kit. I live in the low country of SC and although we have plenty of mud, it's really flat, so there's plenty of fun to be had in a fairly stock Jeep. Replaced the rear speakers that someone had blown listening to Rap (crap). The evidence had been left in the CD player when I bought the ZJ. I replaced the lifters on the rear gate and it only dropped on my head once, ouch! There is a Torx socket needed but a 1/4 sae socket will work if you keep preasure on it. By the way, I bought the rear speakers at WalMart for $40.00 (Pioneer). You have to drill four new mounting holes, but a single replacement spearker at the dealer was $60.00.
