I installed my new roof rack and waited for paint to dry. So i can mount my hi lift jack up in there

Before

After



I used U-bolts to attach my shovel and axe to the rack and then i got a snazzy lock to secure them to the rack

I think i put a hitch on in record time for an xj, especially having no nut strip installed on the drivers side. 15 minutes said and done.

my jeep has the confused prerunner syndrome....4.5" in the rear and 2" in the front.

well it leaked before too, i just never got to see how much since it all soaked into the carpet and started making rust. only places i know it collects is by my feet and same for the passengers side. still raining, hopefully it lets up after school so i can dry it out before work.

picked up a front shaft from the JY for less than $24. while i was there i found an axle shaft laying around, noticed it was rather large so i counted the splines and there were 35! this thing was humongous. i also picked up the flange adapter, which wasnt cheap, but was recommended over spicer by the driveshaft shop i got it from since its greasable and uses a SS ball. i washed it as well.

heres the axle compared to the driveshaft


Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

no i didnt. it wasnt near the other axle, or even a truck for that matter. it was by the ford aerostars. lol. but it does tell me that some vehicles came with 35 spline shafts stock, which i hear is rare so i thought it was cool i found one.

Finally fixed a nuisance problem from the PO that was really bugging me. The lock pin for the driver door check strap had fallen out or was removed and the PO dropped in a bolt that "clicked" every time you opened or closed the door. Today I dug through the parts bin and found a spring steel roll pin that was the right diameter and replaced the annoying bolt. Works great and now I wonder why I didn't fix it a long time ago!!!

Lets see here i put new hood latches and a release cable in, and also debugged a wiring issue with my running lights, and took it for the the first road test.
