Sending this thing back to Tom Wood. It will be lengthened and maybe new u-joints. I also want to get rid of the boot.

Well, I started replacing my pics on this thread. I've gotten to post #7...ugh.

As for jeep stuff, my front driveshaft is at Tom Wood's facility and they should be calling me tomorrow for modifications. I also took the driver's side tire off because I heard noises that only someone really paranoid about their jeep would hear. Anyway, I took the tire of and then the caliper and pads. I turned the rotor and I think the unit bearing is starting to wear. I'll remove it this week and see what's happening. I tried to think of the last time I replaced the unit bearings...so I searched my thread and found I replaced the passenger side in 2012 but not the drivers side. That means the one I didn't replace is probably 10 years old, maybe.

Also, ssyj94 is sending me his sleeve and bolts for his Genright tank. He didn't use them and I need some. Huge thanks to him and the good folks on JF.

Finally, my pads are less than 1/4" thick. Anyone think I should replace them? I want to get some Centric rotors and decent pads. My calipers are Autozone specials that are rusted because I never painted them.

Trying to track down a noise in the rear but still unsure. I did find my rear u-bolts needed tightening and my rear calipers are loose but it's just the caliper on the guide pins. I noticed in don't have the abutment clips so I'll need to get some. I also think I need clips for the front. The pads are leaving indentions in the bracket. I also got my drivers side wheel bearing off and confirmed it was bad.

Thanks, Scott. It will be slow going no doubt but I'll get there.

Well, I replaced the hub bearing with a new Timken. I also put new guide pin boots on the front drivers caliper and abutment clips on my 8.8 because they were missing and the pads were starting to wear into the bracket. I tried to find some for the D30 but no luck.

I bought a pitman arm puller, steering wheel lock plate tool, and a 5/8" drill bit for upcoming projects. Those are:

-Grind out keys on Waggy pitman arm and re-clock. Hopefully my drag link will extend far enough to center my steering wheel.

-Pull steering wheel and try to figure out why the right turn signal is still hard to lock in.

-Drop gas tank and instal Genright aluminum tank.

I still need to finish my traction bar too.

Yeah but all relatively small projects. The gas tank will be more involved but doable. I got a new gasket but I wonder if I should get a new pump?

I ground the keys out of the waggy arm last night and mounted it one spline over. It helped with lining up my steering wheel but I don't think it helped my turning radius. Though I didn't expect it to since the pitman arm can only travel so far.

I may need to seriously consider making a new drag link. Mine is nearly too short.

I just got done doing the same thing to my Jeep. I had to file out the keys in the waggy pitman arm then I threw it on so it gave me almost equal throw left/right. When I did that I had to build a new drag link that is 2" longer. I get a lot better steering turning left now, before it was pretty pathetic how far I could turn right and little I could turn left. And that is with full width 1 tons too.

Hey Chris. Your jeep is looking great. I think I do need to extend the drag link otherwise I'm afraid it might fail at the threaded part of the TRE's if it hits a rock hard enough. Right now I have a solid 1.5" of thread visible on each TRE.

Oh yeah, got my front driveshaft back yesterday and installed it. I went with the dust boot over the rubber boot.

No jeep updates. My daughter is going through the 4 month sleep regression and my grass is at my waist in places. So, other things are taking precedent.

I have, however, driven most of the gas out of my jeep so I can drop the tank.

Well, I found out my fuel pump sending unit is different than most YJ's. It has a large Bosch pump and the assembly is too big to sit in the Genright tank. So, I did not end up installing the new tank. Instead, I cleaned up my sending unit, replaced the gasket with new, and swapped the vents and grommets from the Genright to my stock tank. I plan to keep the Genright until my fuel pump dies. Then I'll buy a new unit and put the Genright in. Pics below.
