changing the leafs after noticing they were snapped

When I bought this jeep the guy told me nothing was wrong with it. I tow it into my garage and notice that the passengers front leaf was snapped. When I bought it the jeep came with 3 sets of leafs so that saved me a couple of coins. Me changing the leafs.




Changed the leafs just need to find some ubolts to hold the plate from the leafs to the axle together

U-Joints Broken

Inspecting this jeep I just bought and wiggled the U-Joints on both ends of the driveshaft and they were really loose (broken). So had no choice but to rip out the driveshaft. Ive had this jeep since July 12, 2014 and did this much to it.



Driveshaft is out like nothing

Testing if the crank sensor is good

I had an idea if the crank sensor was the sign of no spark. So I asked my dad if he can help me test it out of the jeep.

Another Problem!!

Putting the 4 wheel drive axle on after changing U-Joint



After noticing that axle not going in we looked with a light through the axle and a sleeve(gear) slipped out for the actuator.



Opened up the actuator case and popped that sleeve into place.



Solved that problem!!

Refurbished the old hood locks

I had an old hood lock then found one on a old jeep in a local scrapyard. Wire wheeled then painted them chrome.
