Well yesterday on my way back down Bountiful canyon my rear brake line sprung a leak.. That was fun!! But I finally stopped and rigged it so i could get home... $30 later I now have a Double flare brake line tool and a Jeep with brakes!

well today I tore into my trans and rebuilt my Valve body hoping it was my problem... While I had the pan off I noticed the clutches had started to burn.. now that I know the valve body isn't the problem I get to rebuild my trans... Im thinking about getting a monstor in a box.

Well today I got my DOM and weld in Bungs for my new steering set up, and I ordered a Zirgo 16" 3000cfm electric fan, and a BTF optima battery box.

Well in the past week I got a new radiator (warranty), trans cooler, 2 electric fans, BTF battery box, 2 power steering boxes, 1 PS pump, 3 PS pressure lines, 1 custom PS pressure line, JB4x4 steering bracket, Temp gauge, and tachometer. Its finally back on the road and staying at the proper temp. I cant believe how easy it is to turn now that I have Power steering, Now I just need to go wheelin and test it on the trails!
