Yesterday I replaced the waterpump (old one was leaking). Replaced Idler and tensioner pulleys. Replaced serpentine belt, lower radiator hose, flushed cooling system several times and added the correct GO-5 anti-freeze. Repaired (JB weld) the plastic lower portion of the air filter box that the PO ripped out for reasons unknown, then I replaced the air filter. Changed the oil and filter. Reattached lower portion of front bumper cover (hanging down) to the sheetmetal bracket. Repaired the broken grill (JB weld). Started at 9am and finished at 9pm, a long day for me. This Jeep has "Whiskey dents" on all 4 sides but no rot what so ever. Today I'll rattle can the dents where the paint is missing before the winter salt turns them into big holes.

Ran errands with the wife in it and it died out sitting at stop light. First time that's ever happened. Everything seems ok, weird that it happened.

Took her to the local OHV park where I got a little dirty. I actually think it's the first time the WJ's been dirty since it's been lifted! Got a video of me running through their sluice box, you can hear my friends making jokes about a minivan fording through water

New heater core over the weekend. Agree with several on here that it isn't that bad.. just time consuming. OReilly has a lifetime warranty one for about $80 and it is made out of brass like the original factory unit.
