been a while. I don't do a whole lot to the jeep while I'm at school, especially since it's always so cold.
I have sold the BFG AT's to a friend and now I DD my MT's. Now it seems like every day a different one is going flat. As far as my antenna goes, I figured I'll just live with it until it needs replaced. I don't feel like making/ reparing holes in the tub.
I have managed to mount my hi-lift on the hood, which still needs minor mods to keep from interfering with the windshield sprayers. Today I installed a hood prop, but don;t know where it is supposed to click in to keep it from flopping down when you don't want it to. I also painted my headlight bezels emerald green to match the body. I had bought some jeep spray paint from www.jeepsareus.com
for my fender project, but ended up not using it, so I figured bezels would be a good idea. Pics to follow, but they're on the roomie's camera. Replaced the wiper motor and assembly today. Got the whole thing from davey's jeeps in Salem OH for $50. Recently replaced all u-joints in front DS and axles, a good learning experience for me.
Coming Soon (Hopefully):
Tune-up: plugs, wires, distributor. How often is that supposed to happen? I bought the jeep 13 months ago and haven't done one. Who knows when it last hapenned...
Exhaust. I ripped off about 3 feet of pipe in December, and the muffler has already shed it's skin. I'm thinking maybe even headers because any performance gain would be nice, and it should fix the leak that makes the old 4.0 sound like a tractor.
Shocks? Mine are rusty and old looking. How do you know when shocks are warn out? I have skyjunker hydros, so they probably should get tossed anyway. Anybody hate or love rancho? My uncle works for tenneco and gets rancho stuff half off, edit: dynomax too!
Alignment, ZJ tie rod, steering stabilizer.
Roll cage. After recent pics of rollovers, I like the thought of a safer jeep. I'm thinking a bolt-in roll cage is probably good for me, that way I can do it myself and have some built not bought aspect. This is unless I really learn how to weld in my intro to welding class next quarter... Maybe I'll make a steering box skid. I need some skids...
Why am I telling you this? You may not care, but this seemed like a nice place for me to put my own to-do list.
