THANK YOU JEEP GODS FOR GIVING ME SUN THIS WEEKEND!!!!
Got my valve cover fixed, coolant flush, oil change, fender flares off and the rust covered and painted (the cancer is real bad) I will hopefully get some mud on her today so we will see how much she slings without the flares
AHHH YEEEAAHHH BOY!!! Just got a raise at work and looks like this jeep is going to be kicking it in high gear!!! And a new low gear!!
I found a shop selling used np231j cases all working and with warranty for $40 each. They have 16 in stock right now all for my exact model motor/ trans setup. I was planning on one In feb when they were $75. Looks like I may be bringing 3 home. One left stock and installed right away, one getting a beefed chain and maybe the 4lo gear from an s10 blazer? SOmeone suggested it and if I can find the part I will give it a shot.
Got my lights and they are FUNKIN BRIGHT!!!! So bright I see trouble in my future. Now to move those little square ones to the rear bumper and wire them all up the way i want. New fuse block, relay and switch
2 new tires on the way 32x11.5r15 Goodyear MTR-K (2 more coming end of the month)
New Nitro shocks (maybe leafs for the rear but Im not sure if they are needed or not)
Trans cooler and temp gauge and Oil cooler and gauge as well to help out with the extra romping ill be doing this summer.
1. Took the flares off and painted the rusted metal underneath
2. Bought a new toy for my daughter (she is 6mo but someday!!!)
3. And my new lights!!
Run power to the cab/ thru the firewall with a pass thru connector http://www.ebay.com/itm/111022194976...84.m1439.l2648
wire power to the fuse panel (its a "ganged" panel which means they are all hot when power is connected to the block)
power from fuse to a relay for each pair (front bumper, front top, rear top/bottom)
This is an extremely crude drawing of what it will look like when im done
MUDD was struck down last night by a gold 01 Silverado. Took my front bumper clean off, shot it out the drivers side. It was raining and this Ahole decided to blow a stop sign, and me assuming said Ahole was going to stop proceeded. Long story short I hit him on the drivers door and smeared it back to the bed. The ONLY damage I have is the bumper brackets and bolt ripped off the bumper, pass. side bumper cover dented..! Yeah buddy, it sucks i got hit but I came out the winner. I have an excuse to put a steel bumper up front now!!!! The wife isnt too pleased but hey, when is she when it involves MUDD? Cracked my pass side light bezel, but funny that happened because when I bought the Jeep the drivers side was broken and when I ordered a new one they sent me the wrong side and told me to keep it when they mailed me the correct side, win. Amber bulbs mean I dont have to fix the turn signal lens for a bit and the rest is golden. Tore the front end down tonight to relocate the vacuum ball hiding in there that escaped without a scratch, took the AC lines, condensor, collector out to make extra room for my trans cooler (might go nuts with a small one for PS and maybe oil if I can find a quality sandwhich adapter for my filter) I bent the mounting brackets for the bumper flat (outwards) so I can bolt up some 3x6/3x8 steel. Dont think ill be doint to much pulling from the front and dont have a welder so the plates wont do me much good for now. Ill have some pictures tomorrow of what happened and what she looks like now. I want to get my steel on saturday but I think the ol lady will be hot if I spend more money on the jeep Mothers day weekend than her...
Well here is the Picture i took for state farm and then what it looked like 3 hours later after I tore her apart, bent my brackets for me 4"x8" steel tube bumper going up Saturday, painted front clip and ready for trans cooler
At least its fixable thought. My 4door after getting it up to 4.5 I drove down to cali to hng with some freinds going on leave. We just got into a line at a light the second day there on our way to some orv park, and a drunk came barreling into the driverside of me stopped at the light... jeeo slid 5' to the right and caught on the curb, and rolled right into the ditch.... never even got to use 4x4 with the lift in....
State farm gave me enough to get a nice 2door but I still miss it.
I hate to admit this, but he angry eyes look sick and would look good on what Im building. Got my front bumper up, painted and tomorrow the shackles go on as long as the rain holds off. Trans cooler, temp sender and guage all wired. Relocated all my accessory power to the rear pass. side cubby along with the air compressor I scored from the neighbor for some old house speakers. If its pouring when i get up Im going muddin. 3x7" 1/4" rectangler tube, $61, 82lbs
I think Ive decided to mount all my lights on the roof, bars up front, spot on the back
