Changed the battery, also replaced the wiring connecting to the battery posts since it was badly corroded. Does anyone know of something that i can put on the terminals to stop corrosion? oh and i temporarily fixed a power steering fluid leak

This weekend:

Changed front right axle assembly, put in CV style because that's all I could find. Shattered my old U-joint trying to get it out and broke the tone ring on it as well.

Changed front rotors and brake pads. Put anti-seize on everything I touched. Also snapped a 24" breaker bar and a piece flew up and busted me in the lip.

ordered a new motor for my M8274 which decided to poop on me (luckily i noticed it when trying to respool my line nice and not when i needed a tug) and removed the winch in prep for the motor swap and some other needed maintenance

Dropped it off at the body shop to get the hatch swapped out. No more rust! I'll have it back this afternoon, then it will be done for now. The Jeep and I are off to Rochester for college tomorrow. We'll see what kind of gas mileage I get over the 360 mile trip. I'm sure it'll be 20+, hoping for 22 (gonna have to try really, really hard for that). I'll post up tomorrow night or Wednesday morning and let you know what mpg I got, as well as what my Mom gets doing the drive in her 4.0 WJ (if I do better, I'll really have to laugh).
