Replaced the water pump. 220K miles on the original, it looked like it was ready to crack and spring leaks from about 4 different locations, not to mention the years of sludge that had built up. New pump installed, no more leaks from the worn outlets, truck runs right at 195, no climbing to 210 then dropping down to 195 over and over again.

Interestingly, the hardest part for me was getting that darned Fan off. Trust me, you do NOT want to remove the belt before you loosen the nuts.

Running list of work I've done on the jeep since I got it 8 months ago:

Multiple oil changes
Oilfilter adapter o-rings replaced
replaced the starter
replaced radiator, radiator hoses
replaced water pump
installed new top idler pulley
installed new thermostat (yeah yeah, this one is so simple it shouldn't even be on the list)


Now it's time to jump into the ignition and valves. Good times.

Fixed the oil filter adapter o-rings. Took a bit over an hour and was alot easier than I thought it would be. Also found the source of the noise in the rear when I hit a bump....she shed one of the fuel tank heat shields and hot it wedged above the axle, trackbar, and floorboard.

Replaced the radiator and t-stat. Just one thing...Radiator Barn FTW!!!! That is one solid radiator!

And for the guys with Kevin's radiator support (ZJ), I did not trim the studs at the bottom of the RB radiator, and it fit well...tight, but well. Just had a little bit of carnage on the fill spout, but we were able to straighten that out with pliers and a little bit of elbow grease getting the cap on.

Jeep is running just right now temp-wise. Heater's actually getting hot too! Woot!

Sounds like two separate "clunk" issues. I've read about the upgraded rear sway bar rubbing and causing a "clunk". But as far as the shock issue goes, is this a normal result of replacing the stock shocks with after-market?

I have a dull "clunking" in the rear end, when driving over rough roads, Driving me nuts, can't figure out where it's coming from...

The adco sway bar clunking on the differential was fixed on the newer ones, I'm not sure what date exactly but wjjeeps.com mentioned that they fixed that problem....

The clunks are very annoying, and everything is on tight for me so I'm just dumbfounded...I'll probably rip everything off again and regrease and see if htat helps...

my bar is from 2002. i'm one lazy f-er lol. anyway i was expecting it to clunk since i have the old bar.

today, i tried to install the front addco and jks discos. after i got the old bar unbolted i started to bolt on the jks stuff to the bar only to find that the 1/2 inch jks bolt does not fit the addco hole. i assume the hole is about 3/8 then. so after cursing for a good 5 minutes i put everything on minus the jks disco. i did debate whether or not to just put them on with the stock bar though but didn't do it.

I may have cured my DW, which may have been caused by loose nuts/bolts at the sway bar end links. At least that is what i'm getting from my test drive.
