Halfway done with my rear main! Out had become such a pita! Dropped my trans cross member dropped my y pipe. Took both front tires off and took my sway bar off along with the top shock bolts. Then it finally had enough room to get the oil pan out. The seal was easy to come out. I was so careful not to scratch the metal! Forgot top pick up some brake clean. So I will tomorrow morning and then put out all back together! Then off to the next project! Gotta love owning a Jeep. Don't want to get bored! Pics of it all tomorrow!

I put on a new rear main and it doesn't work! It leaks more than my old rear main! I put the top and bottom seals the right way the pan gasket is on right and on tight. It didn't leak at first but them it started to leak more and more. Here is the failed attempt at fixing my rear main

Gave my girl a make over! Added some new fog lights!

I also repainted my cladding and grill! Tomorrow I get to sand and paint my front and rear. Plus I need to change out my stock seat covers for some super clean ones o got from the junkyard. I also finished my family stickers!

Still working on painting the bumper. A 2 week vacation got in the way! I ordered 0 gauge power wire and some 4 gauge with a distribution block to power my dual amps. I ordered a little more 4 gauge wire to beef up my alternator and ground power wires. I get back in a week and am taking two days just for the Jeep.

I am also changing out my valve cover gaskets. I might paint the valve covers as well.

I painted mine green along with my fuel rails to complement the black intake I did while fixing the plenum. Easily one of the best mods I've done. Takes an extra hour and you will love it everytime you open the hood

I should have painted my intake and fuel injectors when I had it out! I might be changing the timing chain soon so I'm going to paint the metal bracket that hold the alternator and AC compressor. I have no idea what colors though.

I did that bracket black as well. Looks much better than corroding aluminum that's for sure lol

That's awesome! I might do my engine some crazy bright colors. I'll have to look at AutoZone to see what colors they have.

Sounds good. Makes you not shy about popping your hood

Napa, and Carquest filters are made by Wix. They just paint them a different color.
