I did that too when I did the ball joints on my TJ. It may not be bad. I did two that way one is still on the Jeep. The other was bad. I have the adapter although it may be bad. I bent one of the pieces but don't remember if it was the install or removal adaptor.

i already ordered a new set, this set will go in the spare parts box, the lower is fine i think.

I'll jsut rent the adapters from vatozone when i get the press again.

One more lesson learned, right? i'm just ripped about trashing it. I know $25 aint a whole lot in the end but hey, i'm trying to be good with money and stick to my monthly budgets and that means that $25 and $65 has to come from somewhere other than "jeep repairs" this month, or i get $90 (which is like, the entirety of the budget) less of other parts i need to finish this.

And the woman is always harpin' on me to get the 'crap' off of the patio and telling me how this was the worst timing to make the jeep 2wd only for a few months....sigh.

Guess I'll be using some visa gift cards for my brakes seals and wheel studs, and a returned gift credit on amazon for the 75% of the warn hubs.

What kind of ball joints are you running? When I did the TJ, nobody had the adaptor. I just pulled out my set and the removal cup is the one that I bent.

I have conversations all the time with people wanting coilovers and when I ask them when and where they intend to go out to tune, they look at me funny and say well I read on Pirate........and then I'm done lol.
My shocks are insanely off but until I feel the truck is built enough to run the speeds it'll most likely be capable of once valved I'm not going to touch them. I'm actually a bit scared of what it might be able to do honestly! It does good right now only because it's got so much damn travel in general, that hides the crappy valving! 17" up front and 24" in the rear is decent no matter how your shocks are. Jason's truck currently is faster though... It won't be forever though even if I don't make the move to bypasses I bet.

I've got to find one, the cloth seats are not working for me as a daily driver. The cloth seats are getting a funky smell that comes off on my cloths. Not working real well at the office.....

Not done but got a start on it last night. Need to at the very least add a 3rd kicker tube and some gussets to tie it into the frame better still and give it a bit more support.

Sometimes I hate working around certain stuff. Yesterday for instance, I was going into an office where Classified information is processed. To go into there, I have to turn off my phone and leave it outside the door. As I was leaving that office, I forgot to grab my phone and I didn't realize it until I got home last night. So, I return to the office this morning and no phone. I ask the guys in the office and am told that it was "secured" by someone else that works in the office but nobody knows where it was secured at. Now waiting for that guy to get in contact with the other people in the office so maybe I can get my phone back. Then again, if it turned itself on for the alarm or something like that, it could be considered a security violation and would have been turned into the security manager and subsequently destroyed.

Thanks for the info. I'm trying to avoid spending a fortune. I was wondering if I could just buy a torn up pair and replace the leather? I know that on my F350 you could take the leather off the seats and replace it, is that possible with the WJ or ZJ seats?
