This afternoon I finished installing my fender, the front lights, grill, and the slightly modified bumper (post bracket reattachment). It's almost ready for inspection!

Anybody have tips on ABS light diagnostics?...
Hmmm, paint...

Decided to race a guy in his dodge magnum, guess who won? Not me. Hahaha ZJ's are pretty fast, but not faster than a magnum with a Hemi. Hahah

95 FiveTwo ZJ, DD, Lifted, Locked on 35s, Build (in progress)

My 5.9 swap (in progress)

Want your zj to be doorless in 60 seconds?

How bad was the original fender?? Take a look at the tone rings at each wheel and make sure they are intact and the sensors are still in place and connected.

Its a Jy axel that I built the tone rings are great, although I used the original sensors. It was T-boned in the front axel here's the original when I picked it up from the auction. http://imgur.com/a/vQiby. I need to change the passenger sensor tomorrow I have two for the JY axel.

There's a black fender at the pull apart but it's been too hot to get it lately. That ones from my other truck.

Finished painting all my bumpers and side cladding, then installed a Westin Safari bar yesterday. Today I put my Hella lights on the bar and also put new tires on. Too dark for the picture from today.

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.

I'm going to change the hall sensor tomorrow and then try that... This is probably the issue with my 4.0 though, I get an intermittent ABS light in it, at low speed when turning into a parking lot. Restart clears it every time.

My favorite part about the D44A is the lack of a gasket for it. I used a gasket on my D30 when I did the gear oil and was pissed to find out there isn't a gasket for the rear. Red silicone it was. The next time I open it up will be for a lunchbox locker. I hate scraping all that crap off just to put it right back on.

Looked at it sitting in the garage, all sad and disassembled. Gotta start cleaning it up a bit tomorrow for the reassembly at the end of the week.

I think that would work for me?? My locking mechanism will sometimes lock and unlock.
