LoL Well yesterday I installed yet another one of my 4spd Auto Shifter Linkage Mod's. Gideon's Jeep still had the original OEM bushing, and as soon as I touched it, the bushing crumbled in my hand!! It would have failed in no time leaving him stranded. I think I really should start selling it as a kit with instructions lol.

Exactly! We also installed some new speakers in his LJ today, and while it was cooler outside we installed a set of 2inch BB spacers to the front end to level the LJ out. She's sitting darn near 100% level now. Nice to have spare parts laying around some times!

Yea! My AC works again. I had bought parts earlier and we put them in today. We pulled a vacume and put some AC oil in first and added about a can and a half of R134, which turns out to be about to be the right amount. All of the pressures came out to be near spec, so I think we are in business.

I'm at a bit of a stand still right now. My house got broken into on 7/29 so no jeep stuff for right now. On top of that, the land lord wants to sale the house now so I have to move soon. I'm thinking I may buy something if I can, but I don't know where yet. So goes the rollercoaster of life. WEEEEEEE!!!!

To bad you can't move closer to me!!! After all you've been through with that place and now the owner wants to sell it vs lease it?? Sucks man!!!

I just installed the Bilstein 5100's on the H3 and my G2 Diff Guard/Cover.
