Reinstalled my rear sway bar over the weekend with Rubicon Express extended sway bar links, had to pull the bar when i installed my coil spacers. All good now. I also adjusted my front axle and lower control arms, I was toe in didn't want my new tires getting shredded.

I added a UK license plate to the front. No matter what mods I do now this Jeep won't get any better.

drove it to my gf's place for valentines day, then driving home, went behind this warehouse area where i use to take the xj all the time and with the crazy nice weather, the snow has been melting and made basically a lake behind there. its only up to the rim but still alot of water. ill have to bring my cam and tripod tomorrow and get some pics and video.

oh, and going to pick the gf up for dinner tonight. going to a fancy restraunt so i brought the zj in the garage and cleaned her up all pretty. shes looking good

Haha, dont feel too bad, i spent 600 to put disc brakes on my turdy5 on the 93. nothing too expensive at once, but added up real fast when i ran into issues.
to put that in perspective i could of had a d44a for 200 from pick and pull and another 50 for a driveshaft.

It just seems like alot.. considering it was all bought in 1 day, you look at the totals and start to wonder if now would of been the time to go "BIG".. I cant imagine a D60 setup for a zj costing much more

- Filled the rear diff with fluid and modifier
- Got all the tranny parts cleaned up (except for the valve body. Still haven't taken it apart)
- Got one front cv-joint apart and ready to be cleaned. Gotta get the other one apart to get cleaned up and put the new boots on both.
- RTVd one of the XJs speakers that is going into the sound bar. It has a little crack in the foam and didn't want to spend 60 on a pair of infinity reference 5.25" speakers. The rockford fosgates will sound fine.

Also, got a boat load of tranny parts for it Sat. morning. Rebuild kit, bands, OD VSS sensor and O-ring, and main OD bearing.

Our tranny parts guy came over last night and took the old TC and overdrive unit. Should have the od back within a couple days.

drove it to take the gf out for dinner and then cruised around and got my valentines day present in it

also realized i need to shorten the extension between the cat and muffler..its pushed the tail pipe back to far so its rattling on the heat shield..but only when its in park and the rpms go up a little. nothing to big to worry about
