Thanks. It's a dog. 5th gear useless. I have plans for a 8.8 in the rear and 4.88 gears. It'll be golden then.

So when are we going to do that?! Unlike you, I try to avoid mud. I hate cleaning.

New Mirrors

When I took ownership of my YJ, it only had a driver's side mirror. At some point I got some relocation brackets and moved it to the windshield. I was in a "doors off as much as I could" kind of phase. The mirror was on it's last leg and it was actually difficult to see past the door skins. It was obvious that if I get my hands on a passenger mirror and mounted it on the windshield I wouldn't be able to see it at all. Actually got the Rugged Ridge pass. mirror for Christmas 2013. Just now installing it. Bought the driver side with birthday money. The passenger side didn't have any thread bosses on the mounting hinge, so had to make some. BFH and impact driver required to get the hinge off so I could drill holes and make threads. 1/4-20. Also 2-3 threads had to be cut off the provided fasteners, because of bottoming. Pleased with the look and quality of the new mirrors. they were like $50 a piece. Also, happy to be wrenching on the YJ again after a long cold winter that doesn't seem to want to let up.



Glass came out while removing the old mirror.



Shiny new.



Cutting and chasing.



Back to stock config. May have to use the relocation brackets for lights or something.

Yeah it sure has been a long one. On the upside it's been great snow-wheeling. How do ya like those tires your running, have ya hit the trails with em?

Nice looking trail rig ya got there. Bare fenders look just like a Jeep should but it has it's down side.

I wheeled without flares for bout 6 years and had a devil of a time with mud splash. The Xenon 9070 flares are now taking the flinging and I can see out the windows and windshield. The 9070's are for the TJ's but work well on the YJ with cut fenders.

didn't have much mud wheeling it in CA. the midwest is a different story. everyone is all about mud here, and i'll need to get some 6" flares at some point. i like the bushwacker flat style from just seeing pictures. i did some very mild wheeling with the mtrs but its been a garage queen this winter. an 89 which spent its entire life in CA, is going to go off like a rust bomb if driven in the winter.

Hardware changeout

The fasteners that come with the Warn rock sliders are just painted. As soon as you use an allen wrench on them the paint gets scratched off, then they explode with rust. Replaced with stainless.

New Headlights

Installed some Sylvania Silverstars to replace my current seal-beams that have developed condensation inside them. It made it into the 40's today with some sun, so it was a good day to work a little on the jeep. Don't forget the dielectric grease.

Sorry about the accident! I never know why people bother tailgating a 2.5L on big tires Eventually folks usually realize, oh yeah, this appears to be the vehicle's top speed Haha.

Anyways love the YJ man, keep up the good work!

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."
