Not one broke, i was amazed. I would read on the TJ forum guys swearing by heat and now i am a true believer. I will go and get myself a torch before having to remove bolts that might give me problems.
I was trying to pick up a winch today, but now im not sure if I will be able to. So if your around and wouldnt mind giving me a hand getting the BL and MML on I would really appreciate it.
Jeff, thanks again for the help today and sorry it took so long. If you are gonna do your brakes tomorrow let me know, i have nothing planned.

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.
Yeah. There's a couple threads about it in GD.
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.
Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!
Zombies hate fast food.
Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion! RJC#512
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.
