Well, my jeep wouldn't start, so I pulled the starter and tore it apart. Found a few things wrong. I tested it first and the bendix would extend but it wouldn't spin. After a bunch of cleaning and tinkering, it works again. I'd post pics, but the app won't let me.

Found an XJ local for cheap. Too bad I have no cash, or I'd jump on it.

I got my OME steering stabilizer today. It's yellow. Like, really yellow.

Maybe the 05 should have some yellow accents added to match it

Bleh. I'm debating on leaving it, or painting it black.

Interesting story about the length of yellow lights. I feel the red light cameras are BS.

The 3" tube makes this stuff look like less than it is. Pretty beefy, I'm happy with it! JY tomorrow for 4.10s so I can get this thing moving.

Bench seems to be working correctly.

Hell yes. Rebuild kit; check. Needs gears and some time!

Was gonna post up pics of the bench a little while ago when I built it. No time syndrome.

image-2302099661.jpg

Needs more work, much like everything else. Base is made from unistrut frame all welded and lag bolted to the wall. Top is plywood and 2x12s all screwed together and anchored to the frame. The only thing it needs now is some feet welded on and anchored to the concrete to keep it from bouncing up on a hard blow. Or the legs taken out.. And lights. And power. Lol

Currently trying to disassemble the cylinder on this jack Jason gave me. It is about to be given up on.

Chuck it if you can't use it. I know the ram needs some work, but the other bits are pretty good.
