Nothing major yesterday, just adjusted my steering stops to try and alleviate some of the rub from my new 31's. Probably going to try some more intense degreasing of the engine bay tonight, time to get out the toothbrush....

Bumper? Rock rails? Tow hooks?

I put on two new unit bearings on the XJ. Amazing how quiet it is now.

And the MJ got a new head unit and speakers.

Tow hooks. Sorry for the mass confusion, brain-dead that early in the morning (7:30am)

Actually in the picture, it is not goldfish or cheetos, it was a pair of dykes. Really does look like goldfish though.

Took off the side vents, painted them and then realized when putting them back on the seal isn't nearly as strong as it was. I would really hate to glue them on...

Since you seem to like to draw up a lot of part ideas in MS paint, you might want to consider using a free CAD program such as the one offered by http://www.emachineshop.com. You can actually plan out the part, better than in paint, and even see a 3D view when your done. It's pretty neat to play around with.


I didn't do a whole helluva lot to the XJ today. It's getting an oil change, and thats about it.

enjoy the last moments of decent gas mileage too...lol. BTW aircruiser, for a no lift jeep etc, its looking really nice. I love what you have done with it.

I agree summit is the best online store ive ever dealt with, and convenient because i can get any part i want in less the 24 hours since they are only 50 minutes north of me.
