Changed the oil, took the jeep for a 20+ mile spin, no chirpping. I hope it's the same come morning when it's like 8* outside.

If that is supposed to mean revenue generator (jk btw) for your town/city/county/state, then a GC is much better than any Tahoe.

What about corner armor in the future, full length or short? Under-armor setup or UCF? Cant wait to see the next phase when 35's go in.

I wish I didn't have to wait, but I do and for quite awhile. I've thrown 5-grand into this thing since I bought it, and I don't have any left to throw.

My hopes for stage two are Metalcloak fenders, with rear corner guards, a tummy tuck, adjustable control arms and beefier driveshafts. That'll be a few bucks.

Stage three would be 35's, gears, and beefing up whatever else in the driveline needed to handle the 35's.

It's good to have goals. Before all that I need to finish stage one.

My "duh" moment of the day.

If you've been following this you know I had some chirpping in the engine compartment which turned out to be the oil pump dristributer. I've talked to Chrysler and have a diagnostic appointment for tomorrow.

Last night I changed the oil and replaced it with Mobil 1 synthetic, Truck Turbo Diesel 5W-40, as suggeted.

This morning it was cold, real cold, colder than it's been thus far this winter. i figured if it was going to chirp it would do it this morning. Well, it didn't.

When I got home from work tonight I figured I'd start it, since it was still friggn' cold as can be. I started the Jeep, no chirping, then.......it died.

My butt puckered, I thought WTF! I started it again......it died!!

More butt puckering. I started it again.....you guessed it, it died.

I was really worried now, you know with the horror stories of the oil pump causing engine failure and all. I tried to start it one more time........nothing!!

I did the key trick to check the code. I called the shop forman I've been talking to about the oil pump and asked him what the code meant.

Anyone?

Driveline was probably a poor choice of words, I mean any parts that need to be upgraded in strength, if any, to handle 35's, I haven't researched that far out yet. Like tie rods, u-joints, steering knuckles, whatever....you know the little things..

Just put the following on your list:

Currie steering
Savvy brake pads
Centric rotors
Arms--whatever as long as Currie JJ's are used

I wouldn't worry about the axle shafts. Put in some new spicer joints and call it a day. Having a rubicon makes building for 35's fairly straightforward.

Do the ZJ tie rod if you haven't already. Your current tie rod is hollow. If you fold it up @ the badlands next time we're there, I'll . That's really the only weak point of your jeep. If it were me, I'd concentrate on belly clearance and suspension before worrying about tires and fenders. After all that is taken care of, the only thing you'll need to run 35's are the tires. A well built TJ on good suspension (JJ's all around, blah blah) and clearance doesn't need 35's to be awesome.

In case anyone wonders.......I used my non-sim (or whatever it's called) door key in the ignition.......
