the double cardan on the front driveshaft decided to start squeaking so i took it out and took it apart and saw that where the ball sits was a bit bent. i ended up getting a rebuilt and balanced driveshaft off craigslist for $100

we went fishing out at the lake and i decided to take a picture. does it look like the jeep is leaning to the drivers rear?
well i didnt notice until i went to drive off and heard thunk thunk. well i got a flat,i had to call my buddy with the xj to have him drive out to the lake and let me borrow his spare. we got back to his house and it took three of the big tire plugs to get it to stop leaking. i didnt want to go through that again so i bought a set of used bfg all terrains

just want to clarify thats just my junk room lol
