Was going to bleed the brakes, but stopped before rounding off the bleed screws (both rears).

Bought a small jack (perfect for hauling from the basement to the parking lot). Got the 3T stands though, as I do plan on a 4" lift one of these years

I do have a bad axle seal (for a while now). Sure is messy back there.

Since I didn't bleed the brakes, I washed the old girl instead. Doesn't quite look like 205k hard miles, does it?

the issue is you may be setting yourself up for a new axle period, the seal goes bad the bearing goes bad and than wears a groove in the axle. At that point you HAVE to change the axle. Money may be tight, but I would rather come up with less than $50 now vs a few hundred later.


Ask me how I know !!! (not literately)

Definitely! It's not just a leaking seal. The metal wire/spring thing on the rear caliper was rubbing on the hat of my rotor so I got it done right away. Was lucky and no damage, but could have been bad if I kept driving it that way. Turns out that mine was done at sometime before, but wasn't done right so it wore out prematurely. Has been find since it was done beginning of the summer.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

Hire a professional to do the gear swap. This is NOT a DIY type of a job.

Got a passenger side heated mirror that works with the memory function and got a driver's side front door harness to make the side mirror dim with the auto dimming rear view mirror I installed. Wife is a happy camper!

Yeah, I know, mall crawling mods, I don't care! I'm trying to add as many OEM options as I realistically can on this '04 Laredo.

Changed the plugs on my 2004 4.7 I bought just a couple months ago. Don't know if they've ever been changed w/75K miles and the center electrode was burnt clear down to the ceramic insulator. Has to help some on gas mileage in changing the plugs out. Kind of spoiled by having plenty of room to work on the 4.0's I've had for years and the 2 rear plugs on the passenger side were kind of tricky.

Don't know if there's supposed to be a small gap around the module connector on the passenger side fender near the firewall but used electrical tape to close it off. Don't need any water/salt in there corroding contacts. I'm also going to have to get some new hood struts since mine aren't strong enough to hold the hood up.

what was your milage before I changed them and what is it now. I'm bringing my car in for a tune up on Tuesday. I have 100k on mine and I don't think the spark plugs have been changed ever. Soo hopefully I can feel a difference and see some improvements in gas milage.

I LOVE MY JEEP MORE THAN MY GIRLFRIEND :p
