Cut the rear fenders today, after doing the fronts yesterday. After I finished with the sawzall, I bedlined what's left of the fenders and wear the cladding on the doors was.

Now it's on to waiting for my tax return to get here so I can buy the front springs for my F->R lift. Way too much money is tied up in this dang 5.9 that's just sitting in the garage right now, and still not close to done...

Today, I had to make a makeshift tranny coolant line. After replacing my radiator I noticed was leaking some fluid from my quick connect fitting, and about an hour later the line completely blew. No-one around me had the replacement line so off to NAPA it was to buy some random fittings and tranny line. Used a screw fitting and a hose fitting on the tranny end and hose clamped the radiator end and so far no more leaks. If anyone knows where to get the line cheap please let me know lol, only dealership that had it semi-around me was 50 miles away.

Took it on its maiden voyage last night. It's still got its quirks and we need to tweak the tranny.

When I got to campus, I drove around in first. The exhaust made me happy. Unfortunately, campus is small and it was starting to rain (had to unload teh baggage), so it was short lived.

Haven't had heat in my ZJ for month's and finally had time to flush heater core and replaced hoses. Now I got lukewarm air, I think there's a vacuum leak somewhere....I guess I will be tearing apart the dash and checking the lines for leaks.....

This weekend I replaced the ujoints on my front axle and slapped on some new brakes while I was up there. Thanks to you guys for the write up on how to do the front ujoints. I had 2 helpers two of us removed the axles and the third did the ujoints. quick and easy.

On another note I replaced my radiator, front driver side CV shaft and front brakes this past weekend and had the rockers done a few weeks ago.
While under there I saw that I also have a bad wheel bearing, CA bushing .............
