What did you do to your Utah Jeep today?

With all the work done on many of our jeeps recently and all of us trying to better our rigs for the terrain here in our beloved Utah. I thought it would be great to post things we've done and projects we're working on. That way we can get ideas from each other and tips for our own work!

Also we could use this thread for questions for your rig on something your working on!

Today I drove my Wj to work... It sure is nice to have a jeep that is locked and geared and isn't overheating anymore!

I was talking about you, silly! (Although I recognize TJ sliders wouldn't do me a whole lot of good). Naw, I can't hurt you guys' Jeeps because you made mine look better.

I swore you can get those from the part shops? I know they at least come in the boot kits. Call the major part stores and see - I'd be shocked if they didn't have them. You'll need one of those crimper tools I think. Or you could just try a hose clamp as a temp fix? I don't know why that wouldn't work.

Yes, most part stores carry universal boot clamps. No, don't use a hose clamp... they throw off the balance & may not clear surrounding areas once the shaft is rotating.


Yeeaaa, my 50th post!!!
