I replaced the vacuum line behind passenger headlight that fixed my cruise control yesterday. Today I replaced tie rod ends, fairly easy jobs.

Took all of 10 min and I did the work myself while AAA watched
I suggest running 15x8" summit racing steelies with a 3.75 BS (they will clear with no caliper modifications). They cost only $44 each shipped and tires for 15s are far cheaper than those 18s you have.

Cut off the muffler and made it a side exhaust. If anyone is wondering, the V-8 with no muffler sounds very intimidating. I really like it. Orignally i was going to replace the miffler, and once I cut the old one off I wanted to start it and hear it with out a muffler. I returned the muffler. Haha.

Took it up to the mountain today, tested out my new duratracs. Very pleased with them, and im way satisfied with the smaller size tire. 33's is perfect for me, im getting 17-19mpg now! Like riding on glass compared to those stupid kevlars. Kevlars never balanced, made my jeep wander bad, now i just cruise with my thumb with no issues.

Heres a shot from my brothers gopro

did this. whole front end hanging over the ledge (someone said "DON'T" go right" but I didn't hear the "don't")

Took 2 wranglers to winch me out (and I don't have a rear hitch, had to hook up to the A-Arm) and a really bruised ego.

Guess that's what happens when you let asians drive

I really love that look. I've been looking around for how I could do this. If you wouldn't mind, could you post up how you did it in my other thread?

Installed a new serpentine belt. The old one was in really bad shape. It was not original like I had first thought but it was an el cheapo POS belt. I replaced it with a dayco premium poly belt (3 year free replacement). Advance auto could not even order my PCV valve though their supplier has none in stock nor do any of their stores around here. I will check autozone on my way home. Hope they have it because I am sure the stealership wants 2-3 times as much for a PCV valve.
