All I did to her is drive but I did order a new amp for my 15s tonight, finally made up my mind to just run two subs instead of three, at least it be a lot cleaner install, not sure if I am happy about that or not, I just need more cargo space

Got the TPS from Kolak today and put it in Took all of 15~ minutes .
It's running so much nicer now. I did notice something that caught my eye when I was working on it though, the little metal pipe sticking straight up seems to be missing a cap, or I'm just paranoid, anyone got any ideas?

Put on a trailer wire harness. Then hooked up a trailer and took the couch and coffee table that's been sitting in the basement for 3years to the lousy in laws.

Yea I don't know why it looks like that. It was taken from a bike. But it does look funny.

It's some kind of distortion. If from a bike, possible to do with being too close in relation to the lense used and the angle the photo was taken. I've screwed around with wide angle lenses and macro shots. Get some pretty interesting effects.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

Did a few things

1. Replaced my old rotting tranny crossmember with a newer non rusty junkyard one
2. Drained the rad and refilled it with mopar hoat
3. Rebled brakes since theyre still squishy after my rear brake line blew
4. New rad cap for good measure since the stock one looked like it needed to be retired

Jack of all trades, master of none

Radiator started leaking, checked and the fitting for the tranny line was loose and leaking. Tightened and good to go hopefully


Also just scored 4 265/75/16s off craigslist for free! Still some decent tread, more then whats on mine

If you're not fixing it, you're not driving a Jeep.

Wj Donor axle prep

Well, not today but Sunday. My differential is going (gone) bad in the front. So I found a used front axle assembly with a good differential. Spent most of Sunday fighting the ball joints. Those things were IN THERE. Only one came out with the actual ball joint press. I bent my Craftsman breaker bar (using a 4' pipe on it) trying to press out the others. Ended up just taking an angle grinder, cutting them off and grinding the surface flat, perforating what was left with a drill and then beating it up with a cold chisel.

The next step will be to permanently repair the rusted coil spring perches. Turns out that mine don't look any better. Thanks Michigan Winters! Hoping to fabricate and weld up new ones this weekend. Will probably spend a couple of evenings removing rust and prepping the surface for sealing and painting. I have new ball joints, am going to replace the pinion and axle seals and put new coil spring insulators on. I don't want to ever have to do this again. lol
