Forget it! I would buy a new rig at that point

Ahh I wish I had access to a scanner, what's keeping me from doing a FULL bleed.

If you don't already have air in the ABS unit, and as long as you don't run the reservoir too low, I think you can bleed without the ABS unit.

True Scanner tool is only necessary if there is air in the ABS unit.

This is a clean build man... I dont know much about whats going on yet, but im pretty sure that this Jeep is amazing... I'm really diggin' the white on black and everything looks so good! Everything looks so tight together and it doesn't look like you just slapped something on to make it look good, you took the time and effort to make this Jeep really pop out.

Good work man, I'm really excited to see what you will do next, I will definitaly have my eye on this thead.

Thanks BadMooney. I still need to follow your bro's lead and install the speedo correction module

That, the CB radio in place of the ash tray, and the winch will be my projects this spring. I am also considering a 242 swap right now, we'll see what happens.

I actually just pulled the CB out today and plugged it in... It doesn't work; I'll just have to look at the wiring and stuff when my brother gets back from work. My dad pulled it out because it bothered his leg when he was in the passenger seat even though he never sat on that side... :P

Anyways, i saw someone else replace the coin dispenser (if thats what you wish to call it) with the CB in there... I thought that was pretty neat and i'll see what i can do...

Also, when you say a 242 swap... What does that mean and what is it..? I'm still learning about cars in general... Sorry to bother.

Yeah, coin tray is where I will put it. The 242 swap means that I am thinking of tossing my transfer case and swapping for one that has a 2wd option.

Are you going to convert the rear to open carrier/spartan while you are at it?

I had to re-bearing my 242 after I got it, if you need a hand let me know.

Alright, thanks for the Info... My brother said he was going to do that but never ended up doing it because the transfer case right now is messed up. The stick to change into 4-low is broken off of what pulls it to shift it. So every time we go to Browns camp, we have to bring needle nose pliers and change the gear that way...

Anyways, off topic but yeah, i plan on fixing that...

Nice. I had a messed up linkage on my zj, I had to do the same thing on a trip to Moab a few years back.

@Chris - after the 242, locker will be the next step

Seeing as how you just did your front brake lines, I figured I'd see if you have some insight for me.
Any tips or tricks to help keep allot of air from entering the system?
Any recommendations on replacement lines?
Anything else I need or should know, or is it pretty straight forward?

I would say overfilled fluid reservoir (top it as high as possible, secure the lid tightly, preferrably airtight) - and quick hands replacing the hoses

If you're still running stock rubber brake hoses, clamp them TIGHT in the middle, unbolt hose from caliper, attach new brakeline into caliper, unbolt old brake hose from hardline, bolt in the replacement line. Remember to top up fluid reservoir before doing the other side

I'm running the coloured SS lines from Quadratec on my ZJ with WJ steering & brakes, they seem to be working right. I bought the ones that are meant for TJs, they work well with WJ calipers, IIRC WJs should have the same sized mounting hardware on the hardlines as TJs and ZJs have. Not 100% sure on this though..

My air is in the system because my calipers and MC both went out and leaked everywhere, you should be fine.

My recommendation:
Replace one line at a time, overfill the reservoir and have someone watch the level. If it gets too low, they should pop the top, add some more, and then close it again. Just move quickly. I would run the new line next to the old line so that it is in place. I would then disco the body side connection, and connect the new line. I would then disco the end from the caliper, and connect the new line to the caliper.
While your doing this, fluid will begin to fill the new line. If you move very quickly and there isn't any fluid flowing out of the new line when you connect it to the caliper, you may want to remove the cap from the reservoir for a second until fluid starts flowing. Then connect it to the caliper. Just let gravity do most of the bleeding work and get a ton of air out before you connect everything. Once that is done, I would bleed the brakes normally, you will only need to bleed that one side.
Then, move to the other sides brake line and do it.

When I replaced my brake lines last spring, I did all the lines at once. This likely caused some issues that I had last year trying to get the air out...Now I just can't get the air out of the abs...either that or my abs module is bad ($$$$$).

If you replace the rear lines, do the same thing...replace one hose and bleed at one caliper at a time.

I had also seen several threads on here about people blowing out the rear hard line. Mine was looking corroded, so I replaced that too. It goes from the ABS module all the way to the rear suspension. With all the trail running we like to do, I would hate to burst a line offroad. Check yours over to see how it looks, it runs right next to the fuel lines on the drivers side unibody rail.
