Yesterday I replaced my leaky radiator and lower hose, the only pic I got is from when I was bleeding the system.



I Did my t-case fluid today, my guess is its never been changed caused the fill plug was stripped out, when I pulled the plug pepto-bismol came out of the t-case, now I know why my t-case whines and screams when it's in 4wd.
Crappy cell pic


Now I'm in the market for a new t-case, I was thinking about getting JB Conversions 231HD with a SSYE, I'm open to other suggestions

I found a 231 out of a 95 YJ with a SYE, it has the same 23 spline input, does any one know if there will be any problems with the shifter?

Some more parts rolled in for the SYE

Picked these up from the local off-road shop because the PO removed the speedo drive gear from the tailshaft.



This showed up from Rokmen, still waiting on the upper control arms

Did a ton last week(including moving back to IL), I've been waiting for my buddy to send me pics. My plan was a simple tcase swap, that did not go as planned, each tcase had different input shaft length so I had to swap them here are a few pics my buddy took, also had to swap the front the output yokes. sorry for crappy cell pics
Pic of me starting to work on the TJ case


After 30min or so I had this (TJ case on left,YJ on right)


Input shafts next to eachother(TJ on left, YJ on right)


just some random pics


Yuck


More to come

Heres the shortened shaft

I also installed my new soft top
The finished product



I also traded a truck tool box (I won off a tool truck) to my friends co-worker, for these
overhead cb cabinet/JKS disconnects


Bestop black soft doors/uppers


I still need to play with the pinion angle, still getting vibes above 70mph, I assume some are coming from the front shaft, so I'll rebuild it and the DC joint in the rear shaft when I get a chance, also paint the fender flares, sand and paint the rest of the frame.

More importantly the rear track bar is shot and the front is not much better, so 2 new trackbars are on the quick list, and a Currie steering set-up, then it should be ready for its maiden voyage.

I've got some spice bestop soft doors/uppers for sale PM me if interested.
