Glad that's over with…

Gears looked fine. I didn't notice any wear or sharp edges. No metal in the diffs. The transmission fluid looked terrible. Almost brown in color. I'm hoping the new Amsoil helps with shifting. I was running Pennzoil Synchromesh.

Pulled the hardtop off the Jeep today. I like the fact that its a 1 man job now.


Took the dogs and the Jeep for a quick drive out in the mountains. Hit a "trail" called Dakan Road. It's really just a dirt road. I found a little place to play around on. Nothing major.



That's all for now.

This was really the ONLY section of the road where you could play around. I didn't even air down.

Got the Jeep home and noticed the freakin passenger side axle tube seal was leaking some diff oil. I think I may have damaged the seals when installing the RCV's. I'll keep an eye on it. This sucks.

Been 2 months since I updated…nothing new on the Jeep. Still getting used. Racelines and 37's are coming soon…I just got back from Belize which completely depleted my Jeep fund. It was worth it though!

Jenny Creek this last weekend.

This Jeep has been great. Built right with top of line parts. It fits my needs perfectly. Good luck with your search!

Thanks Holaday but he wasn't to ship. I'll likely just throw the spare in the tub for the time being.
