She's alive again!!



Got the 2 1/2 gallons of gear lube back in the rear diff, transmission and tcase. Took her for a spin down the road, no new vibration at backroad speeds, Spedo wasnt working again so couldnt tell how fast we were going. She has pretty much the same feeling she had before as far as running/driving vibration. Starting up was a lot smoother without all the exhaust leaks and the sound was a lot better! Transmission has a weird grind to it, to me like something free-spinning when the clutch is engaged or throttle backed off at speed, but as soon as torque is applied it goes away, so guess i will be keeping my eye out for a tranny once i get money back in the bank. I am hoping (its a long shot) that its just something that needs a good lubrication and will go away, didnt drive it too far, less than a mile, but we had it trained bone dry and cleaned out for days, so maybe its just something that needs to get relubricated during driving.

Anyway, still at Jerry's, needs the brakes finished (just new crush washers on the 1 rear caliper) and re-bleed and the new vacuum switch put in for the front disconnect (going with a external switch instead of the internal switch in the t-case that seems to have stopped working like usual). Tcase shifted fine! Jerry's hoping to have the YJ and CJ done for the show.

All in all, not bad at all!

pics from today messing around after getting her home!

homemade RTI: Front up!





Rear up! I did get up bout another inch at a different setting but she was barely touching and a little rocky! Going as far as I could here my rear tire was bout 3/4 inch from the flare/body and the front bout 1 inch from touching the fender lip. Going to be going some cutting in the rear once i acquire a sawzal and new flares all around or try to move these up higher!






Went to the ditch in front of the house to see if i would max the suspension and rub the fenders, and succeeded with the 32's! Thats some flex if i do say so!

Rear passenger stuffed and rubbing:



Front driver stuffed and rubbing:

nope, Wharton in jersey, was messing around with a line that had me past 45* just to see if I could get it, once I was past the point of no return i tried to go through, but shifted in my seat and while trying not to fall out (no seatbelt) i turned the wheel a bit left and that was enough to get me from 2 wheels to no wheels! Tires are GREAT! Can't wait to get them up to the rocks!
