Hate having to keep my rear seat in... stupid passengers should get their own jeeps. Definitely try to find the noise asap, my centering ball assembly in my fornt driveshaft ended up destroying my driveshaft and split my t-case in half. Its in the beginning of my build.

Well see, when my three open seats are filled with 6 breasts larger than my own, I don't mind as much. However, that does not sound fun. I love working on my Jeep when I WANT to, but when I HAVE to work on it and can't drive it, it's tedious.

Very true, the stares you get with the top down and girls in the jeep is priceless. My POS is constantly out of service for the dumbest things, really sucks.

And those stares are much more fun to get than the ones that come from people that are pointedly thinking "It's snowing...why doesn't that idiot put a top on his jeep...?"

Your jeep looks nice, too. It needs a name... Jeremiah? lol. What does that one mean Sundowner?

If you ever decide to get rid of that black top lemme know. It'd look wicked on Obi.

"God exalts" or some derivative thereof. Hey, those four years I spent studying theology have to come in handy at some point, right?

Squeaking seems to be worse over bumps...

My suspicion, then, is a suspension bushing somewhere. Mine ended up being a bad shock, but that's much rarer than a simple bushing squeak.

Well it's a good thing I'll be getting a new suspension this summer, I'll be able to get under there and test everything out.

I seem to have overlooked this post. If I ever do decide to sell it, I'll let you know

Finally ordered a Daystar 1" body lift and a seat heater. A little late in the season for the seat heater, but I'm hoping it's a great addition. Hoping for some good weather to install the BL one weekend!

Did you get one of the heaters that goes under the factory upholstery? If so, I'd like to see a solid write-up on the install, as I'm considering those for Greta and Lola.

Daystar is good stuff; you may have to touch up a body mount hole here and there with a die grinder because the poly mounts fit a bit tighter than the stock rubber units. Aside from that, it shouldn't take you more than an hour or two.

Yes that's what I got, but I was planning on taking the easy route and just placing them under my seat cover. I only got one for my greedy self anyway. Maybe I'll look into installing it in the seat itself just for the sake of things.

I'm sincerely hoping for a painless installation. I'm going to frequently spray all of the bolts beforehand as well.

Well, if you do put it under the upholstery, a pictorial account would be awesome.

I used about two and a half cans of penetrating oil before starting on the suspension/body mounts; it was WAY overkill, but I'm glad I did it for the one or two incidents where there was a bit of corrosion holding the threads tight. I sprayed oil on the top joint of the body mounts wherever I could reach them; that got it into the threads over the process of a day or three.
