The other project I finished was little bit more time consuming. The rear disc brake swap. It was a PITA. All the disc brake parts are from a 96 ZJ. I had to repace one of my existing hard lines due to it wore a hole in it some how. Im glad I caught it. The rubber lines I just bent the mounting tabs on them and bolted them to the spring buckets on the axle, which worked out great. I should have painted them calipers when I had them out but oh well, Ill get around to it eventually.

right:

I also replaced my winch line since it had so many frays in it. A guy in Tampa was giving one away that was in perfect condition just had some rust stains on it.

I recently purchased some rugged ridge rocker guards, I got them really cheap. When I ordered them I wasnt sure if I was going to like them but when they arrived I was happy with the decision. Heres some pics.

I decided to wash the jeep today. Ive been working out of town during the week then home on the weekends so I barely drive it. It should stay cleaner a bit longer than normal.

shows the rocker guards better.

I also picked up a Redneck Ram this past week while I was out of town. The steering box is for a CJ so im going to have to either drill my stock box out or send it to west texas offroad. I also need to change my steering around so that I can fit it on there which is going to take some thinking. heres some pics of the redneck ram

I also installed some Spidertrax wheel spacers so I could some of my front turn radius back and also get my tires out a little bit further. I am still leary of wheel spacers, we will see how they hold up.

If the wheel spacers dont work you could always get some new rims with more backspacing. I've seen those spacers shear off a couple times, but I've also seen regular lugs shear off too. I have heard they are a little unsafe if your tire falls off a rock and hits the ground fairly hard.

So I had some overheating/riding hot issues that I was dealing with that i just fixed(knock on wood). The jeep kept wanting to stay above 210 temp wise and I did not feel comfortable with where the temp was riding. I couldnt remember what thermostat i put in it a while back so I pulled it apart. Once pulled apart i found out it was a 180 degree. I went to store and bought a 195 and threw that in. As you can tell im trying to bring this thing back to stock components. BTW I threw my stock mechanical fan back in and it had no effect on it, and it actually got a little bit hotter. Anyways, I threw that 195 in and drove it. It overheated, 3 times. I brought it home and started checking stuff out, then called my dad to give me a second opinion. After a few little tests I figured it out with some help of coarse. When I turned my heater on full blast, the temp would drop to just below 210. What that told me was the radiator is not doing its job. So i bought a all aluminum 2-row radiator off ebay for a decent price and lifetime warranty. No its not a champion, I didnt have the cash for that. I cant complain though, its got lifetime warranty and it arrived at my house really quick. Here are some pics.




Low and behold it solved the overheating/riding hot issue!!! thank you jeep gods. (knock on wood)
temp stays right before 210 or right on it now even with AC full blast. If I haul a$$ on the highway it gets alittle warmer but never leaves the 210 white dot.
