Overdrive unit is back at home and ready to go. Valve body is cleaned up and ready to go in. So close to driving this thing!

Just a bunch of little things left to do.
  • Fix tcase leak around front output nut
  • Fix front pinion diff leak
  • Flush tranny lines and trans cooler in radiator
  • Install PCV system
  • Reassemble PCM area
  • Wheels and Tires
  • DONE!

Posted up a writeup of the ZJ Cluster Refinish I did. Definitely makes the dash look much cleaner.

that was the worst...what you ask just went to check out the breaks on the new Zj and the wheel would not come off i beat it with a pipe i drove it with no lugs i kicked it finelly sprayed some wd40 between the rotor and rim and cracked it bout 40 times with a BFH and it poped off (well breaks are good) also noticed i dont have ABS or cv Axel shafts , looks like Ujoint Axel shafts (is that any better, think it would be stronger) also tested out the transfercase it launches in 4lo 5-Speed FTW

Dropped the ZJ off at the shop to have the Intermediate shaft couplings replaced - they've rusted out.

So sick of jeeps.. :/

Got my tires mounted and balanced today. Put the fronts on, took my rear control arms off..

called IRO to find out where the hell my LCA are that I ordered 3 days ago, with 2 day shipping... Turns out they didn't ship because they didn't have any powered coated, even though the girl told me 3 days ago they were in stock. So suppose ably they are shipping today, and should be here FRIDAY. I was suppose to leave for my vacation tonight, but I cant because I need my control arms...

Started to swap out my old,yellowed headlights for new ones, and ran out of daylight. Also found out that I have broken headlight adjusters on the DS. Something tells me that every "simple' project on this thing is going to be an undertaking...ugh.
