No it won't. It's framed big time. The rear hitch is a foot under the surface, and I only run 7 psi anyway.

We'll see if they last 4 months like the Icons. If they do, I'm happy.
Pylon wiper blades are the best and longest lasting in my opinion and they are only like $5. Nobody around where i live sells them anymore though so i have to buy them online

I drove my ZJ to the local trans shop to have them review a leak on my transmission and t-case.

Yes, I whimped out big time and decided to just have a professional review it rather than tackling it myself. But I'm wanting to take it out this weekend on a ride with friends and I need it running well (if it's a simple fix).

Think good thoughts.

Left the house to go pick up my daughter today. Hit a bump on a semi bust street at 40 and the whole front end started shaking violently. Pulled over and everything looked fine. Nothing bent or broken.

Limped it to my buddies shop at 20 about 2 miles. Every bump same thing. Do bad the entire truck shook. Got there and noticed the track bar bolt was loose. Tightened it and greased everything.

Went to leave first bump, same thing. Went back. Put it on the lift, bad bearing passenger side. To advanced got bearing back home. Did it in the driveway with no power or air tools. What a great time that was.

Got it in, test drive first bump, same thing. ****! Back home. Track bar still loose. Tightened, truck is now fine. Wtf... Lol. But at least a bad bearing is replaced. Haha

I retired my 69 ZJ for an 03 Chevy 1500. Plan on making a beast out of the Jeep in the near future, but with money the way it is, i can only tear it apart so when i have the money i will be able to put new things on. Excited for the build though!

Finaly fixed the discount tire shop f-up. called them up and asked how tight they make the lugs. The reply I got- we torque them to factory specs.
My thoughts on that- useing their custom made torque wrench with specially upgraded air hose attachment used by a guy who didnt graduate middle shool

forumrunner_20120808_141016.jpg

Factory specs for lug nuts- 80 to 110 ft lbs
