The bulbs ended up being 11.99 a piece, so that made me happy . But when I took the jeep out for a test spin, the freakin mirror fell out of the casing and smashed in the roadway! So I went and bought a small 5" round mirror that fits into the aftermarket bracket. Drove it to work in Keene last night and I'm impressed!!! She drives ok!! Still having some transmission problems but hopefully that will be solve when I do the mml and new fluid in the tranny.

Got it inspected today, Yaahooooo!!!! Now I don't have to worry about the state troopers when I pass them!!

Still have to do the mml, in another week or so I should get a chance to install it. Also got my truck back from the repair shop... Looks like new! Hopefully it stays that way for a while.

Well, not much progress on the Jeep... Still having a clutch/transmission issue. When the clutch is pressed all the way in its fine, but when I let off in Neutral, the transmission is trying to grab and pull forward. Still havent done the the MML, so im hoping it just needs adjusting. If that doesnt fix it, ill have to start a winter project and im not looking forward to that!

I did take it out and drive it around the other day. Thankfully everything else we did over the summer is holding up and feeling ok.

Took it out and drove it for about an hour yesterday... Still having some shifting issues but she fired right up with no hesitation and felt good driving otherwise. We have one more snowstorm moving in this week so im not done snowmobiling for the year that means my jeep will have to wait a few more weeks before I start focusing my attention on her.

Pulled the jeep out again the other day and bought some up/down stream o2 sensors. Started PB blasting them and then tried to replace the upper sensor...

NOPE!! They are pretty much welded on there. Stripped the nut on it and even used a propane torch for some heat... Still nothing...

Next step is to get it up on a lift and use a oxy acetelyne torch to heat it up.

Well I finally got around to getting the upstream O2 sensor out... End up having to use an oxy-acyeteline torch to get it hot enough to break free. Once we got that on, started her up and no sputtering!!! Finally!

Cleared the code and onto the next project of the day, MML. That wasn't too bad to do, didn't have to use the torches on those! It took a little muscle to move the engine to the exact bolt alignment holes at first but other than that it was a breeze.

Few more driveway pics. My buddy backed his TJ next to mine for comparison. He's deciding on a lift to hopefully do this summer.

Well I got the Winch all mounted up and secured and started the wiring yesterday... Thought I got it all worked out and went to start my jeep and nothing. No power to the jeep whatsoever. Tried to even jump start it and it wouldn't turn over. So I Brought out the battery charger and charged it over night. When i went to start it this morning... same thing.. nothing, no power at all. So i ripped the old battery out and put it this one.

So once I got the new one hooked up and go to start it, All my lights work and it turns over but wont fire. Now this is without the winch hooked up at all, just the normal connections. I noticed when I turn the key to "on" the fuel pump doesn't turn on and no pressure at the fuel rail. So im thinking some sort of wiring issue or a blown fuse. I went over every possible fuse I could find and all of them are still good... Not sure where to turn now!!
