I installed a brand new rear driveshaft. Put on a new glovebox door and grab bar. The jeep did not come with them and now the glovebox door hits the grab bar. It seems that I am missing a dash brace. Also found out that the front and rear are geared different. Good day Bad day:suicide:

Yes....it took 3 hours to get it....and I agree it was the biggest sticker I have ever seen on a Jeep

The sticker was kind of baked on the hood from the heat of the engine so even with using a hair dryer to make it more plyable it still would rip every inch or so...

I tried WD40 and Goo Gone on the sticky stuff after I got the sticker off, neither worked very well so after an hour or so of messing with that my wife suggested one of those magic erasers....it worked like a charm....took 4 of them to get all the sticky off.

I buffed the hood with Zymol cleaner wax and put a coat of Meguires Show car polish on it....looks brand new.

Turned the garage light on, looked at it sitting there half torn down, on jacks. Sighed, turned the light off. Went back to figuring out how to buy "must need" parts as cheap as possible.

Marching or fighting, it all pays the same.

I went and pushed on the brake pedal to see if the brakes decided to fix themselves. They did not sadly so I guess I will be trying to determine which wheel cylinder is bad and fixing it. Jeez.

Removed the ignition switch so I could gain access to the brake light switch to adjust it. Had to remove the spring on the brake pedal to reach the switch. Got the switch adjusted but am now having installing the spring.
