The 50 mph shimmy is back. If I hit the power ball tonight I will drop this sucker off with a specialist. all new parts on this ****** and it still shimmies, the only thing I haven't changed is the ball joints. And they're tight?

Kicking back on the patio smoking a cigar. Nice night. Picked me up an old dietz oil lantern at a yard sale for $5.00. Sucker was in new condition, never used.

The Yodeler is bumping tonight. Live band! After the RMS and oil pan gasket on the Comanche today I need a drink.

If everything looks tight with no slop, maybe it's tire balancing and alignment related?

Alignment was just done when I installed the currie steering. I also just had the tires balanced. Doesn't mean it was done right though.

Slow cooked a brisket today over charcoal and hickory chips. Turned out excellent.

Had to replace the starter in the Comanche today. I went to start it up and all it did was click once. My girlfriends dad came over and we went through the usual suspects but nothing worked. He grabbed a broom handle and told me to start it. Turns out the plastic cap that holds the connection studs was moving out and it wasn't engaging the bendix. Never would've gotten that.

how was the rms job? I am in need of that myself, as well as some clutch work. Figure i could do both at the same time, just not sure if i'm capable of doing it myself.

It's not that bad. But it'll certainly make you regret owning a Jeep while you're doing it. Because the Comanche is stock I had to undo both upper control arms, the track bar, sway bar end links, take the entire steering stabilizer stud out and undo the shock mounts and take out the starter to get enough clearance to pull the pan. If you're dropping the trans though it should be a lot easier.

Plan for an entire day to be safe. Because I had to keep taking **** off in hopes of getting the pan out, it took me from 9-5 with about an hours worth of breaks.

I'd say it's similar to the Cherokee because of the 4.0 and control arms. But I'd also imagine yours would be easier to do especially ones you remove the trans and the inspection plate thing. Plenty of room to get it out after you take out the exhaust. That wraps up under the pan, right?

I'd do it for you, but if it leaked its not under warranty

I only used basic hand tools and a torque wrench. I busted out the impact a few times to get at bolts I'd have a hard time reaching with a breaker bar and because I'm lazy.

hmm.. maybe one of these weekends we can schedule a day to do this, and i'll throw some money your way. Also a good time for a little bbq with all you mountain villagers.

I've read the clutch is a super easy swap, but I'd need some sort of tranny jack, and another person to hold the crank pulley while removing the flywheel bolts. It seems like it may be a little tricky in my make shift garage (parking lot lol)
