Yeah bring basic hand tools and unbolt the front and rears when you get there. You can take some pics on the articulation ramp. Take note that you have no cell phone reception there.

I managed to get some work done on the Cherokee. I replaced the oil filter adapter o-rings with ones from a HELP kit from the parts store but they didnt seal. The second time around I replaced them with dealer o-rings and so far so good.

Picked up, modified, painted, and installed a 84-96 xj gas tank skid

Modified and installed a Teraflex ax15/4.0 oil pan skid (had to cut a chunk out to clear the exhaust

Picked up a trailer hitch from a fellow Jeeper

Helped install a recovery point in my friends bumper. Bolted a spare u-bolt through the stock bumper Hey its better than nothing

I helped a friend install a lift on his white 98', his junkyard T-Bird coils gave him more lift than my 3in pro comp coils

Wheelin





The Aussie started acting up on the way home, it wanted to unlock every time I took my foot off the gas even when going straight. I pulled the diff cover and the gear teeth look fine, going to tear into it tomorrow and check it with a feeler gauge.

Aussie told me to remove the locker immediatly and send it in for an inspection. I popped the diff cover and found no shavings, next I pulled the center pin and pushed the axles in one at a time for the c clip removal. After that the aussie locker cam and axle gears came right out but before removing them I checked all specs and they were the same from when I first installed it. The gears looked brand new so I cleaned everything up and reinstalled it, checking tolerances to verify that once again the measurements were exactly the same as before, which was within spec. Topped it off with 80-90w gear oil and took it for a spin. Sounded horrible, before I pulled the locker again I checked my drums and found out one was catching! I popped the inspection plug out and turned the star wheel with a flat head screwdriver until the shoes didnt catch anymore and now the locker is back to normal!
Took the Jeep in the snow for the first time today.




Im saving up to get 31/10.5/15s and a rear d-ring/hitch bumper. Come spring time Im going to herculine the rear bumper and my rocker panels. At that point Il have decent offroad tires to accompany the 3.5in lift already installed, and with a rear bumper Il have front and rear recovery points. After that it will be smaller things such as armor, fender flares, and possibly a roof rack. Trying not to get carried away, its difficult.
