Appreciate it man :thumbsup:

I was digging through the mountian of parts in the back of my jeep trying to clean it out a little. I came across a the 3 quarts of ATF that the parts guy at carquest handed me when I had a tranny leak at the radiator. Well turns out he handed me some kind of DEX/MER **** :mad: I'm pissed, I can't believe that idiot handed me something that belongs in a Ford. Now is this something that can screw up my tranny, or will it be ok? I'm pretty sure the transmission has enough capacity so it won't have an adverse effect. Maybe it'll be a good reason to switch to full synthetic ATF+4 :thumbsup:

cant wait till we can get started

PeriwinkleZJ 11-26-2010 11:35 PM

I get paid the first, I'm ordering the new Wheel. I think I'm gonna try and bend that shock back with some heat and if I **** it up it's only $45.

PeriwinkleZJ 12-01-2010 08:10 PM

Ordered a new DT8000 from IRO. Jason from IRO hooked me up at almost 10pm.
Also a new wheel since I bent my other, see attached:

Almost everything together for the lift.

What'd you do with the old exhaust manifolds?

The PO installed the headers, or else I'd have them in my closet.

Spike300 12-02-2010 07:36 PM

pics of headers

I'll see if I can dig some up. I didn't take many pictures until recently, because I honestly didn't think I was going to keep this ZJ.

EDIT: I can't find any on my brothers computer, or my photobucket, but here's some more of when I brought her home September of 09.
I put a KOR rad support on it, and then put it on Periwinkle. It got destroyed when I wrecked.

My front shock from IRO, and new D window should be here Monday.

I'm having issues with my transmission. Sometimes it won't shift, and hits almost 5k before it shifts if I let it. It feels like it lacks power and won't downshift at WOT when I need to pass people. Also it likes to stall out in drive will I'm at a stop lights, when it trys to stall I throw it in neutral real quick. Then when I shift back to drive it takes some gas for it to jump back into drive. I'm thinking torque converter just from research, and maybe my TPS too. I took my TB out tonight and cleaned it really good, and the IAC. I broke the gasket so I need to pick up a new one before I put it back on. Also I'm going to pick up a new TPS when I go to work(advance auto) Sunday.

The time now is 07:56 PM.
