There's too much vacuum pressure? When I throttle hard mine does the same as your drawing all the vents shut. Is you air filter obstructed?

front pump seal was leaking so I pulled the tranny out, and changed the seal, changed the filter and tranny fluid in it, adjusted my trac bar, changed input and output seal on tranny and transfer case, re-rhino lined the sides and the rear bumper.

I ordered some black electro coated high performance lug nuts yesterday to go along with my new wheels. Now I just gotta get some meats on them and I'll be set! The ZJ only has a couple more things I want to do then it's all finished up... For now. The only things left that I'd like and haven't purchased for it are the tires and an Aussie locker for the rear.

Nope. My Magnaflow came with them.

Changed oil- K&N oil filter, Valvoline max life 10w30, BG MOA, and BG44K in the fuel tank.
Checked and topped off all other fluids

Charged my A/C system, however it still isnt blowing very cold, so I guess that will be my project for next weekend along with swapping out the rear u-joints.

Washed, waxed, cleaned, also did some cleaning and waxing to the underside.
Then went for a drive up into the mountains and took some photos.

Had a pick nick at this abandoned cabin near the Carol Lombard crash site. The cabin looked really sturdy and had a lot of custom ventilation in it. Found a pet cemetery. One of the markers said "Tanky Boy". Looked like rain so headed back.

A vinyl decal would stick out like a sore thumb.
The idea for painting it on would be so that it blends in and can't really be seen until the light hits it just right.
Also want it darker than the hood where it will look like it's deep within the hood.
If it doesn't turn out good, the hood can always be repainted.

It would be darker than this and not show up as near much as you see here.
And like I said, the light would have to be just right to see it.
