Finally got my no-start situation resolved - new battery on the cheap, and replaced the starter.

It's amazing how a strong starter can change what you think might be a weak ignition system. The Heep fires right up now

Replaced my rear wheel bearing seals today.PITA. i was happy to see minimal wear on everything inside. Replaced the rear sway bar link bushings, moved the best old rear bushings to the front for now. Also looked at my engine mounts the driver side looks shot and i think a bolt is missing

I'm about 6.5 hours into this lift. Just "finished" (for now) the front tonight and will do the rest next weekend cause I'm leaving for Niagra falls tomorrow morning. I have yet to install the shocks, but I will do that after everything else is done. Also have to tighten all the bolts in the front. Track bar is in temporarily so I can steer it backing out of the garage to put my moms car in there while were gone.

And BTW, does my pinion angle look good? My CA's are at 15.5 upper and 16.0 lower.

In case anyone was wondering where to get Blinker Fluid, as well as some other interesting stuff.

The pinion angle looks good to me. When I did my BB, it took me about 5 hours to do the front. I did the rear the next day. I drove it with just the front lifted because I had to be at work. I felt bad on my way home because I knew I was blinding everyone with my lights. I can't imagine what that'd be like in yours. Lol. Post more pics next weekend when you get it finished up. It's looking good.

Started cleaning out my garage, the ZJ will be parked and cover in there for a little while.

I may commit a sin, I found a 89 XJ with 5.5" lift for only 2k, and it's from out west and has very little rust. I emailed them, and if they still have it there's a good chance I'll buy it.
