Oh I guess for updates..
So this thing leaks.. Like any amount of rain,snow, moisture in the air and my carpets get wet. It's a couple of things I need to decipher. Could be a windshield leak, cowl drain leak, firewall leak, or the blower/heater box leak. I need to take advantage of this potential warm weather Sunday and pull the carpet and check these areas.. Otherwise this thing is going to rust from the inside out.
Roof rack is on.. Pics to hold you guys over.
High pressure power steering line was leaking. $20 for a brand new one? Yes please.
Replaced the line on Saturday, went to remove the return line from the power steering reservoir to flush the system and cracked the power steering reservoir nipple. FML. Jeep is currently undriveable until new reservoir and return line get here. Hoping to get her back up and running before the weekend as I may be doing some wheelin.
So I know I said I'm REALLY partial to the Ecco's BUT:
These were too stupid of a deal to pass up on. I got 4 75% tread 31x10.5 BFG's mounted on steel wheels and a 5 steel spare for a great price. I did not realize just how worn down my old 31's were. Jeep looks TOUGH now and with the 4.5" backspacing on the wheel should help with rubbing at full lock and flex. Best part is I already have a 5th BFG sitting in the garage with ~80% tread that I will get mounted and balanced to the 5th spare. Should be able to sell my old 31s and 5 Eccos and almost break even on this purchase.
Powersteering pump reservoir came in yesterday and I splurged on the steering and got a brand new return line as well. That should be here today. I'll install this evening.
Need to get over to the tire shop and have these balanced and the thing aligned. Also get the 5th spare mounted up. Looks like the woman and I will be road trippn' it over to Maryland this weekend to look at some German Shepherds. I've been in the market forever but I'm very particular and patient. I've spent time as a decoy/helper working personal protection dogs and Schutzhund dogs so I am very picky..
GF picked up a sexay new Trek 29'er over the weekend so hopefully we'll make a day trip out of it and hit the bike trails after dog shopping.
That is all.
