A little tinkerin'

I replaced the distributor, wires and serpentine belt. Wasn't motivated enough to replace the exhaust today. Maybe next weekend.

Cleaned throttle body and IAC Valve, replaced spark plugs, changed oil, and gave it a bath!

New Jeep

I just bought my ZJ this morning. 1996 4.0L Limited. As previous owner of two jeeps(CJ-5 and XJ) I am looking forward to getting back into Jeeps and being more active on this forum!

took it to high tide and power washed off all the salt. just did it last week too. found all the little paint chips and looks like the under hood rust is slowly itching towards the lip and almost showing on the outside cant wait until it warms up enough to start tackling that. i hate rust

Today I did an impromptu repair on the drivers window. The glass slipped out of the track and one of the roller wheels slipped out of it's track. I glued the retainer track back to the glass with some multi-purpose liquid nail and put the roller back in it's track for now. I'm planning on doing the cheap rebuild sometime soon and replacing all the rollers with new ones. My to do list is getting longer.

-Got the rear diff finished. Just need to fill it with fluid/modifier and mount the tires.
-Tranny parts get here yesterday. Getting all the stuff cleaned up and rebuilding it. Overdrive hasn't been rebuilt yet, so ONE MORE week until it's all done. We've had it for almost 2 months and it's still not done...
-Put the dash back together along with the remote starter. Gauge cluster got its needles painted.
-Reinstalled bumper cover with brand new nylon blind rivets. (if anybody's interested in these, I can tell you where to get them.
-Sandblasted/painted the diff cover and tag. Looks much better than rust.

Some pictures because I was bored...
