using a torch (i use mapp gas) is great for getting stubborn bolts free, anti-seize is amazing for KEEPING them free

No pictures. The body lift took about a half hour and the MML took about 3 hours. Turns out you have to take the bracket off the engine on the drivers side so the bolt can get out past the A/C. Then, even though we only had one side out at a time we had huge problems getting the new mounts lined up so we could bolt them in. Even after all that the two top outside bolts on the MML are now one-time-use only. Good times.

Of course I did not have to be anywhere at a certain time, unlike Kal.

On a lighter note I finally got the hot tub moved onto the new porch.

I like the motor mount lift, it got rid of the minor vibes i had a 50mph. The body lift looks great, but it makes me want new tires( ) and I havent had problems getting into 2nd 4th and Reverse.

all in all it seems as though the Jeep is driving better. My steering is a bit tighter, but thats probably from the lack of power steering fluid.

My fluid level looks ok and i didnt see anything on the ground from a leak this morning. I hope its alright.

I remembered when I got home that I didnt tighten them so I went out and took care of them. It would have been ****ty if I would have lost a bolt.

Really sux.

It's amazing more people don't die tho'.
In the Baja 1000, people lay down on the track and let the trucks and buggies jump over them. They put crap in the middle of the track on curves to cause accidents too.
A friend of mine was racing it on a 650cc dirt bike and a Mexican cow herder walked his cows out onto the course in front of him while he was going about 60. Messed him up pretty good.
I flew a camera guy in the helicopter in a couple of the races here in Cali. It always amazed me how close the spectators were to the vehicles, even on the outside of the curves.
Tragic.

If it's not one thing....................

Plan for today was a tune up. Plugs, cap, rotor and fuel filter. Step one is the inside of the dist cap is soaked in oil. No big deal I can get a seal too. Then two of the ends pull off the plug wires. Then I discover the existing rotor only has one screw and the other one has been bouncing around making a hash of things. Its been running, but not that great, and it's no wonder since the other parts in there are beat up pretty good. So, order a new dist, got new plugs and wires and that was Sunday.

One other thing that went well was replacing the lower steering column bearing. I had to dremel out the old one but it's nice and smooth now.

Then it got better. Went to Cass Street Bar & Grill for a nice dinner; one of my fav places in SD.
