My driver side front coil spring is making a noise when I hit a bump or dip. Almost like if its too loose. It doesnt rattle and the isolators are good. Need to find out what that is.

Does my coil look ok? Is the top most 'loop' too compressed to the second "loop". dont know how to explain. or does it look ok.

Went to the jy. Looked over 50 zj's. Found some new turn signal lenses, fog light switch, tj fuel bezel, and xj sockets. Got home only to find my ps pump leaking. Got new one and put it on. Did parking light mod.

Just unstuck a buddy night wheeling


image-802673447.jpg

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

It took me a while to figure out an idea of being able to keep the wires out of the way while being able to close the doors overnight. I also have an amp suspended in a Walmart bag and bungee cords to.

It's protesting it's ad on craigslist

My shocks make noise like crazy, but it's pretty easy to see that the bushings are shot. I also am pretty sure I blew them the first time I took it out since the lift as my bumpstop hardware was corroded to the point of crumbling, so I don't have the extensions and have probably bottomed them out several times. It's a bouncy, noisey, fun ride. I just learned to ignore most noises.

Got a line on a Comanche today. Vision in my head is to buy a lifted 99 or so xj, extend the frame with the Comanche frame, graft the cabs together to make a crew cab 99 Comanche. Thoughts.
