Did a little work on the jeep yesterday. I went to Napa and got a new unit hub bearing and put it on. No more wobbly wheel. I think this may have been a contributor of the leaky axle seal.

Here's the parts new and old. The old hub had a lot of play and felt rough when I spun it.



My workspace and helper.



Here's the bad hub.



I had to use my jack handle to get the top bolt out. The threads were fine but it was tough to turn. I put anti-seize all over the new hub where it goes into the knuckle and the threads on the hub.

I know the scissor jack is unsafe but I was never directly under the jeep. I need to dig out my jack stands from storage so I may avoid this in the future.



All done. Georgia is guarding the home front.



Dummy.

Good job on fixing the hub, how much was one? Also got you a relay for the rear taillights. Also like your jeep assistant.

The hub was $70.99 plus tax at Napa. Total with tax it was $77.

Thanks for the relay on the rear tail lights. Can you also bring the hole saw?
My assistant does good work. Though it mainly entails digging holes and rolling around in the fresh dirt. See you in a couple weeks.

No jeep updates as of now. School, work, and the upcoming wedding have taken priority.

However I did receive a jar of hot salsa from Skerr on the forum. Awesome guy. Be sure to check out him and Clay's awesome jeep.

Great Job Lou... It's really impressive how you pull this off without a garage... I shouldn't be so wimpy and complain about my workspace

No doubt. I just ate some and it's got a spice that builds on itself.

Thanks Fernando. Everyone's workspace is different. You just make due with what you got.

Well I haven't done anything to jeep. Too much going on. I did, however, get a flasher for my LED tail lights and a hole saw from my buddy and Best man. I mention that because I got married this past Saturday. It was great and I'm glad it turned out so well.

Once things die down with school I can put my LED tail lights in and hopefully get a wheeling trip in before the end of the year.

Great news!

My birthday was yesterday and my wonderful wife did some research on a present. Very good research actually. Since she wants me to be safe and have a long, happy marriage she bought me the beginnings of an OR Fab bolt in roll cage! She went this route because we live in an apartment complex and I don't have access to a shop or welder right now. She got the front hoops and bar for the top and (2) streamer bars. I call them spreader bars that span the middle of the front bar to the middle of the main rear bar.

I plan on getting the other pieces to tie it into the frame and add more support to the rear.

Here's a pic from the web.
