So the current plan with some Jeep buddies is to wheel Rush Offroad Park down in Kentucky at the end of the month!
I'll be hustling to get some preventative maintenance done on the TJ to make it a reliable for the long journey.
On the list is a new oil pan, Synergy ball joints, new front pinion seal and u bolt yoke, new Timken wheel bearings, new front rotors and pads, and whatever other issues pop up.
This winter storm up east is slowing progress as all the UPS and FedEx stuff has been delayed by a few days, plus its too cold out in the garage!
I will be doing a few mods along the way and this includes a UCF aluminum engine skid (need to modify it to fit the 2.4L), front Fox shocks to replace the leaking Rancho mono tubes, a power steering cooler and maybe some other doodads.

Power steering cooler is in, ball joints replaced, new spicer 760X's, front foxes on and bump stops adjusted and the trans fluid swapped.

Here's the drawing for the cooler brackets, they were cut out of a sheet of 1/4 scrap aluminum I had lying around.



And in the jeep!



Tomorrow I'll be trying to get this to work. It's for a 4.0 and the engine mounts are way different. Gonna have to make some of my own. Wish someone made one for the 2.4 lol.

The engine skid is on. Cant wait to tag it off some rocks! I ended up having to drill them straight onto the motor mounts and curve them a bit to sit flush. I had to curve the drivers side bracket a good bit to clear the driveshaft at full bump. I curved it even more after this pic was taken.



And the final result!
