Took the drivers seat apart this weekend to repair two breaks. JB Weld is amazing. Now the seat back is straight.

Topped off tranny fluid (never got it to the right level when I changed it. Replaced both crankcase breathers because they both snapped off when I was trying to replace a length of hose.

well today i got the oil filter adapter in finally. so i went ahead and routed the wires and hooked up all the sending units for my 3 a-pilar guages. still have to figure outhow how to ground the trans temp guage since its hooked up to the line going into the cooler from the tranny. guess with it being connected to rubber houses on each end its not getting a proper ground. but the fuel presure is working, used the test port on the fuel rail to get that to work. and the oil temp is working with out issues, well except being really HOT, a steady 240ish. im guessing either the oil needs to be changed (1000 miles early), getting higher than actuall heat readings then normal due to the adapter. or that is the 4.7L normal temp.

anyone know what the oil temp in a 4.7L HO should be at with normal driving?

Took my Jeep in to get the left rear axle seal replaced. I payed $175 for them to do it the first time. It comes with a one year warranty. This is the third time they are trying to stop it leaking.

this was supposedly 790:




this was supposedly 1123:




i think the guy saying he got 370 looks more like a 670.

2 years of work including going from 4.5" to 6", heavy trimming, changing to JK axles which changed all the mounting bracketry and bump-stops, changing front upper axle-side control arm bushings to Johnny Joints, optimizing shock mounting and lengths, etc.
