I'm starting to build a laundry list of things i need to do on my jeep. Change brake fluid, change differential gear oil, body lift, change serpentine belt, change transmission fluid, do something about my front springs. i'm also realizing how little money i have. I got my work cut out for me at the next party.

Jeff, when you end up geting new tires keep me on the list for your old tires. Wouldn't mind taking them off your hands.

I'm not sure if i can make it this weekend, also due to short funds.

You know it.

Really, I guess there's something about waking up knowing you might make a difference.
Everything out here just kinda sucks in comparison.

Stay away from a body lift more than 1". Save your money for a proper suspension lift.

It never ends. The good news is that elbow grease is free.

I want to change my brake fluid too and I gathered up a bunch of parts to make a pressurized bleeder. Hold off until I get that organized. Longshot to get it ready by this week.

Do you need brake pads or just a bleed?

I hate it when that money thing gets in the way

The fluids change out isn't something you need to wait on though. You just have to get some sort of hand pump to fill the transmission fluid. Either that or take off the shifter boot and remove that plate from your floor board.


On a different note.....

For those who either don't work a regular 9-5 or just don't want to go to work one day next week I am planning a weekday run. It will be either Tues, Weds, Thurs of next week and either Coral Canyon or a desert 'circuit' run (squeeze, sandstone canyon, diablo dropoff, mud caves). I have all of next week off so the day of the run depends on what day the most people can go. Let me know if you can make it on any of those days!

Im not taking that shifter boot and floor board off again! that thing is a PITA. Im going with the pump, plus they are pretty cheap and handy.

I just need to do a bleed, my brake fluid is pretty dark/black. Sounds good though, just give me a heads up when you finish it and are ready to give it a go.

We can add the black Jeep to the bleed list, Jimmy and Jason did a brake job on it last week and the pedal is super soft, needs a bleeding.

And seeing the pic of Jimmy blasting thru the creek, nothing subtle about that water crossing, reminded me that we should do a diff/trans/etc fluid check after having everything underwater for those that were out there. Maybe do a fluid day when Todd, umm I mean Nate, is ready. Get a big jug of oil, some RTV and do them all.

And I know that I could use an oil and filter change too

a total toxic waste day
