Hosed off the salt. Contemplated starting the teardown /cleaning of the memory mirror sensors, but worked on one of the XJs a bit instead.

Eyeballed the minor dings, scratches, chips and slight rust that is going to be repaired / prepped / and painted by the fall as I am starting some autobody / restoration classes at the local Vo-Tec.

I've decided that while I'll be changing out the low beam light, I'll also tap into the high beam wiring to pick up the + just for the signal to the relay so I'm ready to put on extra lights when I get them.
Does anybody know what's the best way to get a couple of wires from engine bay to dash? I'll be fitting a switch for the extra lights.

I'm closer to ditching the 30's on factory rims for 32's on JK's. Today I noticed leaks so bought rear axle seals and bearings and on Monday will finish the suspension tweaks and install the adj. rear CA's.

Finally checked my odd rumbling noise that I get. Figure U joint, wheel bearing, balljoint, engine mount or bushing. After check all of them i took the front diff cover off. the ring pinion and spider gears looked great. No play at all. But while spinning the wheels to check the gears i noticed something odd with the drive shaft. after further inspection it actually was the U joint But atleast I now know every things good on the jeep. And i actually had luckily my uncle had the right one. so now i have a new U joint and changed diff fluid! Total Win!

placed a bid on a wrecked overland to pull the engine out of since i'm sure my heads are warped and a few users here and further research says that these heads shouldn't be resurfaced.

I just did that, but I measured the JK's at 31". They do have wear, but let me know what diamater yours come up with if you get new.

Swapped tires front to back and vice versa on mine. I can't rotate them, because they must turn in a certain direction... anyway, I've had some problems with sharp turns (left or right), it felt like jeep was in 4wd. After some research and measurements, I found that my front tires are wearing out much faster than rear, causing different diameters and that's why VC was engaging on sharp turns. Feels much better now, I'll see tomorrow when I'll have another 100 mile trip.
