Replaced my spark plugs back to factory setting from what it had from the previous owner and did an oil change. I sure do love that 22 mpg, I have now!

Everybody loves black wheels. I'm not a fan of the black wheels. I don't know why...

If you have the rear addco swaybar, the wj drives just fine with the front disconnected. I think i will only reconnect mine when i tow. Fwiw, i have the rc discos and disconnected them because they clunked after about a year.

Rust sucks!

Well today, I fought rusted threads well installing ,my new front skid plate. The passenger side threads in the welded nuts were really bad. I thought at one point I was going to possibly break the grade 10 bolt! Thankfully taking my time and lots of lube, paid off. I then cut $30 worth of plastic rivets to remove my front bumper to install my tow hooks. I installed my hooks with all new hardware, since the used bolts were a little shaky due to rot.

I ended up buying push pins to replace the rivets in the wheel wells. The push pins I got were a little large for the holes in the bumper, however I made them work with the help of a vice.

I moved my front axle forward a half inch to eliminate some rubbing on my factory rock sliders.

It's not r12. That's OLD school stuff they used before the 134 came along. This newer stuff is r12a.

Went through that myself. Ended up using some really good penetrating fluid and heat. Worked really well.
Never did try replacing the rivets at all. I just tuck the wheel liner underneath the bumper. Worked well thusfar.

Removed the rear axle bearings again (shop installed them backwards, idiots) and installed the axles with new bearings and collars.
Tomorrow a friend of mine is going to weld a 10mm allen to my Transfer case filler plug and I can finally change the transfer case oil. Curious how dark the oil is going to be......
