did a little flex text to see if the new Spydertrax I installed would still let the 35's stuff......not too bad for the front still being connected...

Looks good dude.




Today I tightened my lower radiator hose clamp up cause it was leaky....and bought and installed a new battery...got rid of the crappy interstate and got a advanced auto one with 1000 cranking amps and 850 cold cranking amps with 150 amp reserve.

Picked it over the optima yellow top because of the "no questions asked" three year warranty and the additional 5 year pro-rated warranty after that....

Optima just has a 3 year warranty

1st thing I did was the gas struts when I bought our '02 WJ. After once being clobbered in the head, I learned the hard way. AA has lifetime warranty on theirs !

The crud is above the block/head surfaces, I was very carefull with the gasket, and double checked the torques. I'm gonna pull the valve cover to see a little better. Hopefully the head is still under some kind of warranty. It was from clearwater.

Got "new" ballast from hidkitwarehouse.com
It was dirty and one of the clips was broken lol
It works, so I don't care. Just don't buy there. My next kit is coming from ddm.

Wish I went with 5k again. The 6k washes out really bad and is off from the other LEDs, but I doubt this kit will last so I guess that's something to look forward too.

Coldest day of the year and today is when my thermostat starts pissing. I couldn't feel my hands, made the repair a pain in the a$$. Here are some pictures...

The second and third pictures are of the tabs on the fan for removal. It would've been such a pain to do the job with the fan in there. Taking the fan out took 5 minutes and saved a bunch of time. I reccommend it to all.

In the quest to vanquish the transmission gremlin I replaced the Fluid Pressure Sensor/Transducer, the last of the possible external fixes and unfortunately, the issue remains. This means all that remains now is dropping the pan, filter, valve body and solenoid pack to replace the solenoid pack.

Pressure sensor appeared original and the o-rings had shrunk a bit so at least I won't have that to worry about later.

Timing sucks since I am on a 2-day trip to Mojave tomorrow and Thursday, then leave for a week in Shanghai on Monday. Will order the replacement solenoid pack before I leave and put it in after I get back from China. Only question is whether I do the OD/Lock Up Solenoid as well as the solenoid pack - don't really want to drop the coin, but also really hate being inside the trannny.

You took out the fan and shroud just to change the thermostat? Unless you did the water pump too, that was way overkill.

BOT: ordered rugged ridge floor mats and took it to the river to catch this nice brown trout.

Been cold as hell here in Jackson hole. Getting ready for oil change thin weight if cant afford synthetic and will also be tracking down a block heater. Got a little time in the neighbors garage so gotta utilize it. Jeep starts like a slug and sounds like a murdered prostitute. Power steering pump is so loud
