Thanks man! One day I hope to build up the courage to make my doors like yours. It's harder to get them right and keep them from leaking with the new-style hinges though.

Kinda funny. It's never been reliable but I think of the old junk dad always drove so Ma could have something new, safe and reliable and where I am in life now, getting ready to get married and thinking about kids, this is what I see myself continually patching back together. Guess I better go ahead and finish getting it like I want it if I'm going to be stuck with it.


Another angle, just for fun.

Same for me. Kasey has had the mustang and her newto us SUV and even though I may give her a hard time about it I wouldn't have it any other way. I'll probably never geot a vehicle that we finance or at least finance much for. Thankfully though she has the jeep bug. Maybe a jku or a wj. she'll be the baddest mom around.

I don't go to them because Unos sucks. They know us by now, that we come every month and how big our group us. And every month they give us like 2 people to take care of all million of us and it just doesn't work. Food is wrong, refills never come, **** that place.

Yeah I don't order much, but I enjoy getting together with everyone. You're not the only one who's voiced concerns with them.

She swallowed a spider to catch the fly...

The right rear wheel cylinder was leaking. It saturated the shoes on that wheel. Replaced wheel cylinders, shoes and springs on both sides but needed to bleed the fronts as well to trip the proportioning valve. The front bleed screws were seized. PB Blaster didn't touch them. I thought about just replacing the calipers but that seemed like a lot of trouble for something so simple. In the middle of that, I lost a week to going out of town for a wedding and having to work some crazy hours. Got back to it today. I've been wanting to try this stuff for a while. I'm sold!



I wired off the rust, applied anti-seize and reinstalled them. We then bled all 4 corners with no issues and the brakes on my XJ have never been better. I'd love to do a rear disc swap but I went what I thought was going to be the quick and easy route this time. Fail!

New hatch struts on the way and I'm going to shim the rear axle for the SYE to try and chase out the last of my vibes.

I get up that way every so often. Never done Crozet but I'm going to try to pull off an early fall trip to Shoe Creek for my bachelor party. My buddies have an Xterra, a Bronco and a FSJ Wagoneer.

It's much better now. Of you want drama you can find it, as with any social organization, but it's a good group. There's also a bunch of us who are new since then.
