I finally fixed that Cruise Control on my jeep that's been down for almost two years. I got bored and decided to take a look at it, removed the battery, battery tray, fuse block, 10 bazillion wires, and then removed the servo motor, thinking it may be bad. took it apart and cleaned it out and didn't look like a whole lot coud be wrong with it, when you compressed it you could hear the suction, so I traced the vaccum lines back from there and found a pinched hose (not the rubber one, but the hard line one) I used some pliers and a shop rag to "unpinch" it and then I could blow air through it, put it all back together and didn't break anything else, which was amazing in itself. Now it's just like new and it actually works

Worked out of the back of it, as usual.
I'm rewiring an entire strip mall and the ZJ is my tool box and work bench.

Ordered bar pin eliminators, stud conversions for the new shocks and ordered a cragar rim for a spare tire.

I'm just going to go with the Ford F450 shocks again. Nice and cheap. 25 bucks with 11.5 inchs of travel. Good stuff.

I hope your not a short guy, that would be mighty interesting to see me (5'6") working out of the back of a ZJ lifted 7.5", I'd need a step ladder

Got some clunking noises from the track bar, stock bolt on the axle was worn, had a little play, threw in a grade 8 - 7/16" bolt in there and loc-tited it.
