popping is usually from ball joints

Yesterday I drove from Boston to NYC in my 04 grand.. Since there was a ton of traffic, I popped on a little halloween movie (Sleepy Hollow) on my Double Din Headunit. Pioneer Avic-930BT.

Definitely makes traffic go by quicker.

Well I went and made a big hole in my jeep. God it is empty, any chance of changing my mind?

Left over parts

Followed WJCHRIS' thread so not going to redo the build instructions
Here is the porn, look at that pretty diff



What do you all think, my axle was hitting the tank after I stretched the wheelbase a little so I had to do it.

Tore out my front passenger seat to try to figure out why the motor won't turn to lift/lower the front edge of the seat. It looks like it tries, but the screw doesn't turn. I can't seem to get it to turn manually either. Its a shame to have to replace the whole bracket for one bad seat motor.

I think I found the perfect axle to swap into my WJ. Who needs a vari-lok when you have this? You guys think itll fit?

Yeah...it'll fit...you will need more torque to push that weight around...

I'm sure I could wedge the 27 liter diesel in my engine bay. Or to keep true to the 4.0 ill shove in the 15 liter I6 instead. All the H.O. guys would be jealous.
