Desert Sand TJ
4 Attachment(s)
Bought this TJ 3 weeks ago and have already done a decent amount to it.
I bought it knowing it needed a new radiator and steering gear box due to a small leak....but what i didn't see was the frame rust where the skid plate is bolted to the frame. We cut out the bad which was only on the bottom of the frame and welded in the new. We also put one inch spacers on the skid since I was lifting it.

Got the rough country 2.5 inch lift. It rides great and the install was pretty easy.

Came home tonight and noticed a nice puddle of coolant. Looks like water pump, so that is next.

Water pump done! I hope that I do not have to do that again anytime soon. Took about 20 minutes just cleaning the old gasket. Now all that is left to do is the steering box. It is a slow leak so I might wait a little while.

The time now is 10:37 AM.
