couldnt start it. may have to do the dreaded CPS change. trying a coil/cap/rotor first since those are still original. hopefully that does it.

Bought a SUV car cover for it.

Gonna cover her and she'll rest there for a little bit. Looking at getting a newer (06+) dodge ram, can't justify continually fixing the jeep at the moment, but I'm definitely going to get a tranny and drive shaft for it sooner or later.

As much as I hate to wheel in the mud I did it anyway. Its been raining here ffor the past 2 weeks so I was itching to go Offroad somewhere. Went to the bonet carre spillway next to new Orleans and rode around for a few hours. Yes it was VERY muddy but fun.

What size are those pizza cutters? Never mind I just read your sig. they are the same size I'm running. They look bigger in those pics. Do you have wheel spacers?

Mounted a new (to me) Roof Rack, a Garvin Wilderness 6 footer. I scored this when I went to the All Breeds Jeep Show in York. PA today! Some nice JZ's there too, but mostly the Tub Jeeps! I used SS U-Bolts and mounted it to the original rack! This rack retails for over 900 bucks and I got it for $140.00 NO TAX either! Now to get my tire and Hi-Lift jack up there where they are out of the way! I also plan on using it for my Kayaks too!

Apparently there was deformation in the bend from stretching when it was made, so in order to keep the transition into the bend in obstructed I did that. Limited funds no torch or plasma...

Ok so i did an upper gasket kit this past weekend (blown head gasket) put it all back together changed the oil and plugs and i still have a slight misfire on cylinder 4 anybody have any suggestions it runs fine on the road just a lil jumpy when I come to a stop.

Found out last week that my starter cable is pretty much done. Dropped the starter today, cleaned everything up, and still no-go. I can hear the gear engaging, but no spin :

Shot an email to Jeepers and Creepers for a totally new (massive) cable set. We'll see if the wallet (or the wife) bite me in the butt

For now though, it's stuck on the ramps. Can't get it started without jumping the solenoid

I wound up getting loaner strut compressers from O'reiley. made it easier.. for me it was a tool issue. Looks great. tomorrow I will hit the rear... pics to follow
