Yeah these new limits suck.
Maybe for you and others that don't understand how to post a 640 x 480 picture with what they have .

The limits make the site useful to every one . There's nothing anyone can see in a huge , mega pic that can't be seen in a 640 x 480 shot . When You guys would post a pic big enough for an outdoor movie theater , it would take for ever to load a page . Most of the time I'd just skip the site all together . Now , with limits in place I can come here and bug you guys with useless , time and space consuming info about nothing in particular . Just like Seinfeld .

See how everyone gets a chance to waste every bodies time and resources ?

Of course , there are the one or two posts that actually contain something of merit ...

Weekend bump for the Cherokee Of The Month contest.
The poll closes Monday, don't forget to support your fellow XJ drivers. If you regularly post in this WDYDTY XJ today thread, I should see your vote over there.
Vote for the June Cherokee Of The Month!!!

Yeah, except some of us actually pay to not have to use other sites to host photos. It's going back to normal after this weekend anyway.

I use a reduction program and set the pics LOWER than 640x480 and then it still says my pics are still too big. (And I get a different limit amount EVERY time)
I'm tech stupid on most stuff and my iPhone reflects that very well, I could use suggestions if you've got any....
On topic:
Used my '87 to jump start my '99 so I could get parts for a '92 I'm working on for a friend.

Did the driver's side ball joints out of OCD type behaviour - it was a smidgen of movement, but would creak quite a bit under load while wheeling.

Hated to do it because this LPD30 will be tossed in the fall so I put some jobber balls in my axle.

Also spent the night at a friends cleaning up and tacking in perches for an 8.8 to go in his TJ.

Are the ball joints what's giving me that feeling that my tires are wobbling side to side when I hit a bump?

My dd sees about 6 miles of washboards at 40mph every day. That's the beating that would make it make sense.

Try lifting the axle up to raise the tire then jam a prybar under. If you lift up on the tire and see any movement between your Inner C and Knuckle, your ball joints are worn.

Only my Driver's side was loose - the passenger is tight.

Awesome, thanks. What's the basic 1..2..3 to replacing them?

There is a 6.0 around here owned by a diesel mechanic, he redid the headgaskets, headstuds, and modyified the egr on his. That truck is deffinatly no slouch, and hasnt had a problem in 7 years now.
Your completely correct.
The 6.0s can make awesome power and the 7.3 is the dog of the family when it comes to power. I was referring to stock. The 6.0 can be made dependable for a small fortune. And the 7.3 while not a massive powerhouse WILL make the energizer bunny jealous! Just keeps going and going!!

You guys are talking diesel tech, I assume. You should gather this info in a thread so that those who are searching will find it I'm not complaining about it being here, but the info wont get found here.
