So, I finally got around to taking my Cherokee in to get a horrible exhaust leak fixed... That turned into a small nightmare. They ended up upping their original price by almost $100, didn't do all the work I'd asked, and it's still got an exhaust leak. So, I'm none too pleased. Plus, the idiots rewired my spark plugs wrong, so my timing was screwy when I went to pick it up, and I had to sit there in the parking lot and fix the timing myself.

Sad thing is I took it to an exhaust shop that supposedly specializes in older vehicles and has high marks on yelp. BS I say!

temporarily fixed the exhaust leak myself, today. Turns out my header's warped, and I'll need new ones. However, for now, I have some nice graphite header gaskets, and some copper rtv filling the gaps.

Also fixed my Power Steering leak, and drove it around some.

With the weather so nice, it's kinda hard to drive the SJ instead of the TJ (with the top and doors off).

Your Jeep is definitely cleaner than mine. Not sure I need any of the parts you mentioned, though. Right now, I'm still waiting to get the dang floor pans fixed. I'm about on the verge of taking it to another guy I know, and just having him do the work for me. I still drive it around some, even though I can see the road below me.

Flintstones. Its just like my 68 Wagoner. You learn along the way. I just bought a welder some sheet metal and a air cutter, die grinder and a few body hammers and away we go.
The worse case is you set yourself or the truck on fire. I did both. Keep the hose ready and close by.

Fiddled with it some more today. Glad to see it's handling the 96 degree temp without issue.

Nice. I figure as long as I can keep my carb tuned, I'll be happy spending money elsewhere.

Hey wfttalon sorry sold it about a month ago. I moved the spare tire to the inside and mounted a 40 gal Chevy tank in its place.

Where'd you get the LEDs for the interior? I've been thinking about putting some sort of LED dome light in mine.

This week I replaced my front turn signals, and side marker lenses with stuff from BJ's. Hugh improvement over the old cracked ones.

Also looking into replacing all the exterior lights with LED plug in bulbs.

Decided I need to start working on my welding, cause it looks like I'm going to have to do the floors myself... Sadly, of my two friends who had offered to weld the floor pans for me, one's messed his back up, and can't for a long while, and the other passed away about a month back. I've already got a welder. I just haven't used it for more than a decade!
