I'm a little concerned. Although, they have a pretty good feedback score, theres still a moderate amount of negative reviews.

So STS says its the idler pulley. But a local trusted mech says its the alternator. Not too happy considering STS charged me $400 a few months back for the job. Paint came in yesterday, i'll try it today.

Been traveling around the last half of my summer and the Jeep has been neglected. I tried the touch-up paint on the still busted up corner and my hinges. It didn't match that great, a little too dark, but I can live with it. I'm working to save for a new fuel pump and some other maintenance related things... possibly an SYE/DS. Also trying to find a good deal on Centric premium rotors. No one local seems to carry them.

STS called me up and said that they'll warranty the alternator and belt... plus they'll replace the idler pulley for part cost only. Pretty happy about that. Rotors ordered from Rockauto. Next should be fuel pump...

Repainted and remounted the trunk. Still using ratchet straps, but I used rubber table leg ends cut down to 1/2" for the trunk to rest on. It's a little more quiet now. Still need to mount the sub box in a sturdier way. Ideas are welcome. Just tossed my new rotors on yesterday, so braking no longer blows my ear drums.

Trunk and new bike carrier. Parents didn't like it scratching the new car.


Bling.

With those rubber pegs it killed most of the rattles.

How do you get there? I've looked for it before. Can you pin it on google maps?

Coming North out of Beech Creek, take Monument Orviston road, get on to Beech Creek Mountain road, then turn right onto Sand Spring road. That should get you to the trail system. At the end of Sand Spring turn left and then your first right will be Furnace Hollow Rd. If you follow those directions on google maps, you'll understand.

Yup recognize all of that stuff. Really fun up in the quarry area, can't say I remember how to get up there. I'll recheck google maps after my Lit class.

Back at school. I made a list of parts I want to be installed before winter. It sucks when the jeep barely starts, leaks form multiple seals, and the engine chatters like a can of bolts. No one likes being stuck on the turnpike in the dead of winter. So far, I think I'll need:
1. Either a new fuel pump assembly or pressure regulator
2. Low mileage Durango steering box
3. Timing Chain kit
4. Timken unit bearings (stripped studs; still original stuff)
5. Front crankshaft seal, front and rear pinion seals

First challenge is affording all this (which isn't that much, but, you know... college). Second is finding time to install. I'll be reading up on all the procedures like a fiend so Murphy's law doesn't bite me in the ***. That said... someone buy my YJ corners and rear seat!

I finally sold the corner armor after a year, my parents were just about ready to toss them. New FPR, Timken hubs, and timing chain kit waiting for me back home. Hoping to replace as much as I can during fall break. I also hope to make it out to Rausch Creek this fall. Stress from school has me really itching to get out there.

I plan on picking one of these up this spring as well...
