I have 2 tiny, hardly visible rust patches. If I get those dealt with... I'll just keep it. Everything else works and I get 22 mpg driving reasonably.
Had to get a new engine last november. Now finding that pretty near all the suspension control arms are no good. Two more to go, and possibly a track bar. Had a ujoint in the rear drive shaft go, rear seal go, just over a year old wheel bearing go due to the control arm issue, front drive shaft. Just never ends it seems. Front uppers, and A-arm and the one bad rear lower all have been done. As soon as my new front lowers come in, they'll be put in. At least I get really good gas mileage!!

Sucks - it's a lose / lose. Don't want to get rid of it after dumping $$$ in... But don't want to keep it because you know more stupid issues are coming.

Installed the new ARB front differential cover and drained and refilled the transfer case. That's the last fluid change on my maintenance list, so I'm pretty happy about that. The ARB looks great, but I didn't have a chance to drive the WJ around after the install. Hopefully everything is nice and tidy!

New sway bar links will be here Tuesday, so hopefully I can eliminate the clunk I introduced when I installed the Addco rear sway bar on Thursday.

That's just being nasty in my eyes.

If anyone says anything, ask how does anyone know it's inoperable or not? Has someone violate your privacy and gone into your vehicle? Isn't that invasion of privacy? Here I think they thought my jeep wouldn't fit into my garage. They were wrong. Bottom line is as long as no one can see it, they don't gripe. Hope you get it sorted out.

Maybe we should all bring our jeeps over and visit you and really give them something to gripe about. I absolutely hate nosey *******es like this that have nothing better to do than cause issues for others that are none fo their business. People like that need a good *****slap or 10.
Unfortunately, it's too tall to fit in the garage or I would. I'm assuming the 4x4 block behind the wheel is what triggered them to assume its a non-op. But it wouldn't be difficult to see right under the front bumper and notice there is no motor I guess since the jeep is lifted so high.

I would actually love to have everyone bring some WJs over and park them ridiculously or leave them for a few days in my street and drive my neighbors crazy. The amount of HOA regulations all my neighbors break is ridiculous. They never get complaints. Pretty sure they just don't like my vehicle, and figure anything lifted in a decent suburb is "white trash". Soo... Jeep meet at my house next week?

Used to park my XJ (6" on 33's) on my buddies TJ tire (6" on 35's) all the time and we'd go have a coffee. Was funny as hell watching people. Need to do that right in your driveway and leave it like that for the better part of a saturday or something. They'd be having kittens!! LOL

Any chance to put smaller wheels on temporarily so you can fit it in? Might be a solution.

Good call. Find the cheapest, smallest size tire you can find on Craigslist and try it out.

Well, if you know how many inches you need to clear, would be easy to figure out what you need height wise maximum. Other would be get 4 donut spares from the wreckers. If they can handle the weight, and they should, you can't get smaller than that usually, and they normally can't give them away so to speak so maybe can pick up dirt cheap.

(Can you tell I don't like to be told what to do with my property? Yep, I've had a few run-ins here with those who would want everything their way cause they don't like this or that. You should see what I've done with my garden! Gotta push the envelope!)

You can also ratchet strap your suspension down with a car tie down style strap and/or let air out of your tires.

10 times better. The RC seemed like the lowest end shock. You could hear them actuating and they didn't sit right in the rear. I think the coupler was too small leaving space for them to clunk. All that has gone away and the ride is great.
