What did you do to your Wagoneer today.

Just bought it so I changed oil, trans fluid, topped off the brake fluid. Brake fluid is real dirty looking. Should I suck out the old fluid and put in fresh then try to bleed the lines?

may as well. No telling what the PO put the jeep through. New fluid = 1 less worry

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

She started up without having to even pop the hood...
I'm thinking I flooded it yesterday and she was a bit upset????

Bought a new gauge cluster from the junkyard. Will be putting it in tomorrow and hopefully stop the speedometer from jumping all over past 40 mph. Also changing brakes out tomorrow.

Shut the front door! lol

I'm waiting on a new gauge cluster from ebay for the same reason... after changing both the upper & lower speedo cables! I can't stand that crazy speedo needle!
