Next time make yourself a mix of ATF and acetone it works better than any penetrating oil on the market and can be made for pretty cheap.

I read about that and was considering it...but the spray is so much easier to use. I need to mix some up and then keep it in a small oil can that makes for easier application.

They make solvent resistant plastic spray bottles that work well for storing something like that mixture just label the bottle!!!! Don't want to apply that to anything else

Yeah definitely be cautious when applying it do not want it to touch the paint job (undercarriage is no biggie to touch up).

Did a sweeparound of the vehicle today inside the heated garage (first time I've been able to check since the weather got super-cold) and found some leaks. Very small puddle of antifreeze that I can't determine the leak from yet (might have been spit up from the rad cap), AND my stinking steering box is leaking. Again. Had the dealer put it in 3 months ago, but the part that annoys me the most? The fluid dripping out of it is red. They put ATF+4 into a new box, and what do you know, now it's leaking from a seal. UGH.

Installed my new Carolina Driveline rear drive shaft and yoke.

Question for you guys, if my axle side upper control arm bushings were toast what are the chances of the body side being just as bad?

Drove the KJ to the dealership to pickup the WJs breather and bought some 247 fluid. Serviced the transfer case and installed the breather. Also got my amsoil delivered. Now to get paint for the covers...

i like it, i was thinking of in the middle of the front windshield at the top maybe. i saw somebody had a mallcrawler.com one there and it looked pretty BA but then again it was bigger and in a funny font.

i like your partially blacked out taillights too did you use that VHT Nightshade stuff?

I did the same smoke for the lights, except I left a vertical strip about 2 inches normal. Just because the cops round here dont like the smoked lights. In colorado you have to be able to see them from 300 feet away. But I also left the back up lights un-smoked. Because, unlike other cars, they actually do help on the WJ.
