Plastikote Industrial Enamel, IIRC it's a satin black. The can's in the background. I can get you the exact number if you want. I got it from Tractor Supply.

I washed it again today cause I gotta give the GF's mom a ride tomorrow, and she doesnt like when its dirty. Says it makes the front of her house look trashy. Is it bad to shorten the vacum line that leads to the canister on the bumper? I want to cut my bumper, but need to relocate that, and it seems like I'm gonna have to shorten the line.
no i did it to mine infact my line broke so i used some clear tubing from menards to fill the gap. works perfect

Went for a bike ride on the trail today in town. On the way back in my XJ, stopped by a local used car dealership. They had a 01 TJ, I test drove it mainly for two reasons. 1. To see how noisy the soft top was and 2. to see how noisy the road noise is on the road. While driving the TJ, noticed the front end was out of alignment just like my XJ. Must be a Jeep thing. Also noticed how quiet the road noise was. Hoping it is just the tires being shot on my XJ that make them noisy.

YES!! the truck looks killer and I considered bronze on a set of the Craigars

Our local forum has a lot of imports on it.
Really nice 11 sec cars. I love the color on Subies, etc. Why not a 4x4?
Unique and great against the paint.

Looks good. What did you do, buy a new one? It's the only thing clean under the hood besides the PS pump. Direct swap?

So...this is what up (on my spring break...)

Since I didn't have time to do this during normal weeks, it got pushed back to the break:
- Rewired the power windows, now all roll down (significant improvement)
- Installed a new Durango steering box
- Realized that my ps pump that was giving out, just can't cut it with the new box...hurray for lifetime warranties
- Found the left motor mount is breaking down...

Still can't tell what the clicking is from the under carriage...its not the transmission, increases with speed, and there aren't any bad vibes, any suggestions? (newish timken hubs, 1yr old hd u-joints on axle shafts, driveshafts rebuilt 6 months ago...)
