Just moved into a new place so I haven't done much lately. Still moving the last bits of stuff out of storage and unpacking plus overtime is picking up again. Shackle relocation brackets are on hold until I can find a nice day to go to my buddy's place. I think I'm going to go the easy route and just make a small incision from above to hold that nut with a wrench instead of taking the whole bumper off to get into the frame rail.

Factory starter finally died, though. It's spend the last few months slowly cranking out starts until Saturday when it finally turned its last turn and there was literally nothing. Good thing I was right next to a Domino's! A short flatbed ride home and I put the new one in last night that I'd bought at Napa a few weeks ago. Start-up is insane now. So much faster and more powerful, even when the old starter was in good shape.

Out with the old (151,900 miles)



In with the new

My starter is a little weak as well, 198,000 KM on the original, so close to what you have. I also want to replace it one day soon, and clean up all the connections for both power and ground.

Still in Tacoma man or did you move north?

Yep, just moved about 5 minutes away over by Wright Park. No more room to do any major projects on the Jeep, but thankfully most of those have been taken care of already.

Sure! It might be a little while, but I'm hoping to get out sometime by Memorial Day weekend. Flag football league starts this weekend so I'm tied up every Saturday until then.

Good stuff man. I was down about a month and a half ago, but was a quick trip, only 1 night. Next time I will give you a shout and maybe if I bring the XJ you can show me some trails?

Other than Tahuya which is like baby's-first-trails, the only thing really close around here is Evans Creek, which can be...tight. Especially for XJ's. I do okay there but I'm pretty careful. Still hard to keep the trees from trying to rip the flares off on some of those turns though.

Haven't done a whole lot lately...been too lazy and no longer having a driveway to work on anything keeps me from even doing simple stuff. Got rid of the stock header today though, and put in a shiny new Banks. Seems a lot smoother at idle and under throttle so far. Paired it up with a new Walker downpipe sans the pinched part above the O2 sensor that comes with the factory one.

So I don't know if I missed it in the post but where did you get your fender flares at or are the custom fab?

Yeah, they're Bushwacker flats that I picked up online for about $150 per set. I'd have been just happy with no flares, but Washington is a flare/mudflap happy state and require these stupid things. I have no complaints about the flares other than that they try to separate themselves from the body when you're driving up against trees, especially the rear ones since they follow your line. At least with the fronts you can avoid things. They hold up fine, but they're just held in by small screw hardware. Good enough for the streets, but not so great on trails.

So, pretty soon I'll be looking for a full steel solution, like this: http://shop.hooliganoffroadengineeri...r-Full-Set.htm

Nice man, those look excellent. Burly and DOM so no more flare removal at random times!!

Sell me your Bushwackers when you upgrade so the placement of your old parts on my XJ can continue! lol
