Fall Crawl is coming up next weekend so I decided to address some issues before I took this toilet out again.

For starters I pulled the shaft to replace the ujoint. It turns out I was too lazy/stupid to use full circles last time, and that's probably why I spit a cap, which wallowed out one of the ears on the stub.



Then I popped the diff cover to see why my stupid locker was being stupid. It turns out I broke the pins again, but at least this time I got them out without having to pull the carrier and ring gear.



Next was checking on my tweaked unibody rail up front. I noticed this a few months back, and not sure if it happened when I rolled it or one of the times I smashed that Jay Leno wannabe ARB. It's kind of hard to see in the picture, but that bump along the bottom if the rail isn't supposed to be there, and right above that the outside of the rail is pinched in close to an inch.



So I slapped a quick plate over it to try to keep this piece of **** alive a little longer. While I was in there I welded the inner fenderwell back to the unibody where it had started to separate.



That's all the love this thing is going to get for now, hopefully I'll get some good action shots this weekend.

Are you guys actually going to wheel this time or just go out snap some pics in the woods and go skinny dipping again?

It's a little cold to go skinny dipping, but that certainly doesn't mean we're goin to wheel. What trail are you on? I got switched from Wayne's World to Upper Wambus, which is actually one of my favorites.

Haha I figured you would say its a bit cold...

And actually as much as I really wanted to go, I can't. Def be there next year. Had I signed up, it would have been for Wayne's World tho, sucks that it was shut down.

Ehh yeah I guess. I wheeled the NEA Fall Crawl and destroyed the rear driveshaft when I landed on it. After that it sat for over a month, I moved into Boston so I'm ~30 minutes from the jeep now and rent has taken up most of my play money. I also took a trip out to Moab with a few friends for almost two weeks, which was incredible but pretty pricey. I aired up the two flats and bolted in a new driveshaft last weekend in anticipation of wheeling on the 17th, but then I got a hernia at work this week so I'm pretty much down for the count for a month. The worst part is I can't drive stick while I'm hurt, so I can't even drive it for fun right now.

Short answer, yes

I just had surgery last week and I'm getting better finally. I wheeled a few weeks ago, I think you saw the pictures on instagram? I'm hoping to wheel once or twice in the next month then I think the part out is going to start. I know I know I'm a ***** blahblahblah, but there's a lot behind the decision. I'll be doing a mild build on my XJ in the spring, nothing crazy but I'll post about it when it happens.

Not sure if I'm going to make it to NACfest this year yet, but probably not.


Jeep is gutted, and almost everything is sold. It kind of sucks, but I got a good look at some of the bad spots on the unibody with the drivetrain out and it wasn't going to live too much longer.




I have plans to do a mild DD/weekend wheeler build on my XJ, I'll post up a link when I start a thread.
