Taking the wheels/tires to be mounted tomorrow. The gal @ treadwright said to request a 'static' balance instead of a 'dynamic' balance. (Anyone who has vibration issues with the retreads is apparently not having them balanced in the correct mode) Did some research and it makes sense to me.

I was also a little creative with some rubicon hood decals....

We have a blizzard warning right now. Pics are en route!

I have never seen a TJ with these wheels.

I think it turned out OK!

The NORUBI budget build. I think that's what it will be called.

Lots of wind and snow today. I will try to capture some photo opportunities.

Looks really good! Confuse the heck out of some guys when they see 'BF GoodRich All Terrain T/A' with the original Goodyear MT/R tread pattern!

Cheap! I've paid more than that for a 3.5" lift kit - more than once!

Well, the heep has been spewing coolant like a baby throwing up....

This is on the driver's side of cylinder 1. You can see where it is drying as it falls down the block.



From the underside. It is tough to distinguish where the leak is originating. Although, where the coolant is most green, it looks like a small crack is present.

Just to make sure the number 11 head bolt (closest to the front - Chilton's) was coated with sealant, I pulled it.

You can see where the head bolt taps into a section of the coolant galley.



Bolt was coated with something, but I do not know what it was.



I coated the bottom 1/3 of the bolt in high temp RTV and installed.




It was worth a shot. The RTV will be cured tomorrow morning, so I will look at it while it's running and attempt to find the exact source of the leak. I have a bad feeling though....

Still leaking. It seems to be coming from the head gasket. The #11 head bolt was a bit loose, and that could've initiated a gasket failure.
