I didn't take a picture of it but if you pull off the lower shaft at the gear box and look up the end inside the coupling, there is another small hole to inject grease that will fill up the lower slip joint under the rubber boot.

Mike it sounds like you had a bad start with the tilt columns. Glad you got it ironed out.

I wonder if allot of them are like that, in that they have some of the same problems. It sure would be nice to have one.

The guy I was getting them from said he had never had one returned for that problem in the twenty years he had been in business. I just happened to get two in a row. You can imagine my response to him when the engineer in me started to rant about quality control check lists that should be added to the boxes for the consumer to see. I also reminded him the fact it was costing him money to ship these things back and forth five times before he got it right. His shipping expenses had to be well over 1/3 of the price of the column. I will give him credit for standing up and keep shipping me new ones until it was right.

He's have great customer service if he'd have paid the shipping after the initial purchase. Being in business is more than just taking money from customers. At least he shipped you a good one.

Yeah, it was a good thing I was not in a hurry for it. I could see others not being as patient as me but in the end he did make it right. I paid $289 with free shipping and he supply's a return label in the box in case there is a problem or if you want to ship back an old one as a core. I think he'll pay you up to $40 for old complete columns.

Steering Column Firewall Seal

I got the steering column firewall mount installed with a new seal. I didn't torque them all the way as I might have to make an adjustment once I get the seat and wheel installed.


Here is the top of the seal on the firewall side.


A good picture of the bottom half of the seal. That should keep cold air and other weather off my skinny legs.

Everytime i get an e-mail i think to myself, "is it coiz" and when it is i get excited, i then see that there are picture links in the email and i get even more excited. this project is truly amazing and with every little finishing touch you put on this thing i get that much more excited to see the finished product and see that video you post where you fire her up and take for a spin the first time. Have you thought of name yet or does she already have one?

bs369, reading your response gave me a good chuckle. Thanks for following along and your post.

I am getting excited as I finish all the assembly details. It is fun being able to go out and work on the Jeep and not be completely filthy by the time I'm done. Working with clean parts is nice.

Yeah, it is a shame that it is going to end up dirty. Its a Jeep, it better end up dirty!

Seriously though, top notch beautiful work that you have done here. I am impressed. It will be clean enough to show it when your done.

when i see a build thread past 50 pages, I usually click through the last 10 just to see pics. but DOOD I just read all 64 pages of this. I couldnt stop!

I was just saying that if someone could bring me a fully restored v8 CJ, id trade them my 04 TJ outright and in a heartbeat. You are the one I hope would be dumb enough to go through the deal
