Pulled the high beam switch from my parts Jeep to replace my slightly flaky one (assuming it works). Also put the horizontal headlight adjusters from the parts Jeep on mine, as mine were screwed. And, I cleaned the old head gasket material off the block deck. Just gotta wipe the crud out of the cylinders, and she'll be ready to start going back together as soon as my heads get back from the machine shop.

Ran a bit of sea foam into the throttle body and removed the running boards the PO had on it.

Drove around dirty as ever, found a beautiful looking Blue WJ, 4.5" RC lift on, brush guard, tinted on 33's BFG...
Then got in front of it and saw it was 2wd... WOW just WOW

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.

Got in trouble with the wife for talking too much about them...

Edit: or maybe it has to do with the spending on it...

Radiator is done, no more leaks, no more over heating, I think the lower tranny cooler line is leaking slightly, but NO MORE OVER HEATING!

To celebrate I cleaned her:

My mom told me she can get me one for I think 100 through the used dealer she works for. But we will see. Need radiator, fan and fan clutch. Need to take the front out and straighten it up an replace it all when I'm in there.

I wouldn't, mine was only off encase I had to fix something on the rad. I put my older (I have two), less trimmed, black one on when I got back home.

What do you think?



This should look good with my pirate flag when offroading.

I like it. I think it would look cool kinda blending it in like that

Go to www.rockauto.com thats where i get most of my maintenance parts.

OT: Started putting my new radiator, radiator cap, thermostat, upper/lower radiator hose, and trans cooler on that i got from rock auto. Icould have probably finished today but at 103F today, i was just drenched in sweat so i came in after i got everything off.
