I'm going to start doing some basic maintenance on the jeep. First thing is going to be getting a new trans pan. We believe the PO over-torqued one or more of the bolts and misshaped the pan, so when we installed the new filter and gasket, it still didn't fit properly. Hopefully this will fix that annoying little leak I have. Next is a tune up since the jeep just clocked over 100k miles. Then I'm going to check u-joints, ball joints, etc. Then probably changing the rear dif fluid and adding another lube locker.

I'm going on vacation a week from today (yay!) so all of this will be happening afterwards.

I'm also still unsure about whether I want the crown steering or the currie. I know which is best, I just don't know if I want to spend the money or not.

Well, I have no complaints with the Crown for the 20 hrs it's been mounted. But it's not permanent so not much of a risk for me.

Also seems like my AC is going out. Set at this is barely cool and no where near cold.

My AC has never worked. No idea what the issue is. I swear sometimes the air from outside blows colder through the vents than the AC.

My AC works fine, I just don't have the top on enough to use it. When you put the hard top on, it's like a microwave sometimes.

If your AC isn't blowing cold a recharge isn't going to fix it for long. There is a reason the coolant isn't there anymore. Need to find and repair the leak or you are just throwing your money away. Trust me on this!

Yup! What he said.

I've had so many leaks on my a/c system, it would've been cheaper to buy an a/c kit & just do everything. Haha, I've replaced every part except the condenser on mine.....it's now leaking again...

I contradict. Mine stopped blowing cold one day they vacuumed it and recharged it. Worked ever since. 2 years

A lot of times the coolant has particles in it that serves to clog the leaks. Guarantee if you asked the shop that did it they would say the same.
