Also, you'll need a second person to help you remove and install the dash assembly.
I flipped my dash onto the seats and had enough room...i'm on about 7 hours now and its time to put the dash back on

Gotcha. My friend and I are setting aside a weekend to do both of our WJ's. Mine has crapped out and his is showing signs. I can't wait to fix this! Mine actually would blow smoke when you turned the heat on so I didnt use it. Thank god for my heated seats!

When I bought mine the PO just said it didn't work. So I put a can of 134 in and turned on the fan. Ended up with a nice face full of it and the wonderful smell, it was awesome...

Exhaust hanger on downpipe broke off so theres a hole where it's supposed to be, pipes are newer, need to see if it can just be welded.

Mine looked like I had a fog machine on. It would slowly creep out of the defrost and then really start pouring out of the vents.

I had to replace a blower motor and heater core on my 65 mustang last year. That only took a few hours. Not much to mess with there, also no AC to worry about breaking....simpler times..

Washed the bird poo and beer can rings off her and all shiny after the lift. The soft 8s are MUCH easier to clean then the stockers were.

Removed 2'' spacer lift and installed 3'' OME spring lift with Bilsteins and JKS Track Bar. Had an alignment. Installed 2 of the 4 roof rack lights. Now I am getting ready to give it a wash. Eventually when I am not broke, I will put some 30'' tires on it.

Don't you just love that setup. I'm on day 2 and in love. I went with 31s though and am seeing some rubbing.

Gave it a nice wash. But I also has it parked sligtly on a hill for about and hour, I can back and went to start it and it was dead. I checked the terminals and they were hooked up fine and tried it again, and all the gauges were going nuts. Then I sat there for a few min and tried again with my foot on the break, and it started, why did this happen?

I put it on yesturday and so far I am loving it. I figure I would go with 30'' to give it a little more height and so that I can keep the spare in the spare tire compartment.

Put on a new wheel bearing on the drivers side. Didn't totally fix the squeak/howl and I'm not sure if it's a little better or just my head telling me it is so I can justify the $83.

My 31s on soft 8s fit in the spare tire well too. Its the largest tire I see using.
