Finshed my tow hook install, and just for reference, the bolts that thread into the frame-rail plates are metric 10 x 1.50. Chances are you will need to replace several of them as they have a tendency to snap when you pull them from another vehicle. The drivers side bracket is torqued down a little where the hook mounts to it, looks like the po actually used them a time or two I thought about using a floor jack to lift the front end by the hook itself to see if it will bend back with some weight on it. What do you guys think?

I picked up a set of felpro rubber valve cover gaskets the other day. Tomorrow I will get into the replacement. I noticed that alot of the injector harness wires are stiff and brittle. That's typically how my projects seem to go .... I fix one thing and it creates another. Here's to getting it done without any problems.

I don't think I'd use a jack to lift the vehicle by the hook. If it slips, you could get hurt, or even worse, damage the Jeep.

So today is 40$ all you can carry day (in the blue wheelbarrow) at the local Pick N Pull. So of course I'm here an hour early

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.

Cut out area next to AC drain in fender, cleared clog, added hose. Re-soldered light switch. Cleaned IAC valve although I think it just needs replacement. Still have high and erratic idle.

I wish there were pick and pulls in northern nj.. I'd save so much money.

OT.. Ordered a pillar light brackets from Detours.. Also put a new rad cap and new hose for the heater core bypass. Since the old one got kinked.
