Pushed my stock suspension and street tires to the limit at the lake today
I brought my co-pilot.


Stock flex!


Hard to tell. But this is pretty steep. I was VERY surprised.

You will be amazed at how capable the WJ is even in stock configuration and street tires.

Trust me I'm still in awe. My buddy came in his lifted tacoma, half the time he would refuse to follow me ifs...
I also watched an Izuzu try something i did, ended up popping a tire. I was nice and helped them change it. I'm waiting for my copilot to send me those pics. there are also a couple of videos too.

Yea WJ are very capable out of the box and then adding a few mods here and there sure make them even better. One of the best all around vehicles in my opinion.

Today: painting rail and running wires for roof lights

This week: replace seized caliper (actually doing both fronts) and new front pads

Thinking about painting the new calipers Patriot Blue to match the body... Just a thought, and just because

Cleaned up the battery terminals and replaced the PCV valve. Removed the ski rack too. Nothing too fancy today. Lots to do in the near future though...hopefully I'm up to it all as I'm a total novice:
  • spark plugs
  • front shocks
  • drop the pan on the transmission
  • new dash speakers
  • seafoam it

I just changed my brakes. rotor and pads. First time doing it and it kinda suck but i got it done. also Change the engine oil. switch over to royal purple. The oil is really purple cool i guess. I got 10w-30 I guess thats good for a 4.0 next 2 weeks I will change the shocks.

Got my windows redone with 20% on front and a 5% brow.

Replaced the rear rotors and brake pads nothing to hard took me about 20 min a wheels. Also found out my front left hub is bad so going to be looking into those soon not sure the brands for the WJ but I've usually gone timken on hubs.

Also I'm getting a popping sound when turning at slow speeds like into the drive way or just slow corners almost like a spring is popping. Did a dry park inspection nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

New Monroe monotube gas shocks up front (stock replacement for up-country according to Rock Auto), did the rears last week along with coolant flush, t-stat and lower rad hose (top appears to have been replaced by po). My radiator drain petcock is mucked up, nothing comes out. Any easy cure for that? (My XJ Sally has that too....)

Anybody else have to cut the top of the shock shaft off in the wheel well?

New hvac blower motor, still have to address controller / resistor connector issue.

Hammered out some of the dents in the drivers fender. My wife 'modified' it and the basketball post / net. The b-ball thing got the worst of it.
