That storm looks fun to go drive in!

OH I found out yesterday that my LSD in my D44 rear still works, and that I can burn out with 33's on

Anybody need a rear bumper for a TJ? It's a beefy steel one that you can use a tire carrier on it. LMK.

New fan assembly, aux trans cooler, OD cutoff switch, oh, and 4 open recalls that went unaddressed despite being a given a CPO inspection...

It took me 2 different cases to get the trans cooler on mine.


What do you think about trying angels peak again? I think last time we turned around right where it was starting to get good.

Well, just cleared out one parking space in my driveway!!! Down to 3 cars and a race truck build. Still own a jeep though! Nice thing is I'm now up $1300 more in savings then I was before I bought the exploder and it's still in my driveway! LOL When the jeep sells it's just that much more!

Welded my *** off tonight since it wasn't blazing hot. Got some plate work to do tomorrow night and then next week I figure out what's the next phase. Probably the 4 main engine cage tubes, then I'll get back to the cab doing seat mounts, steering, pedals, etc...

BTW, Dr... Your car adventures sound like mine. Just cleared up a space yet still had to pull the explorer into the corner of the yard, pulled the jeep out from behind the gate, decided to put the prerunner in storage behind the gate, will cover it tomorrow night, then pulled the exploder back into place and put the jeep in the driveway. Musical driveway with vehicles basically! I might actually drive the jeep a little bit next week just to get the fluids splashing around in it some!

No, not a true mandrel bender with the insert. Just a generic JD2 Model 3 bender.
