Atempting to replace the steering gear box. 2 sheared bolts on the bracket? Check...seized bolt on the pitman arm? check. This is becoming a nightmare

Soak those broken bolts with PB Blaster for a few days. Use heat and a HD easy out to get them out of the frame. Drop the shackle out of the way and soak the last bolt that's now holding the shackle bracket. Once you're done, chase the threads & use grade 8's. Been there, done this, never wanted the T-shirt!

Thats what im doing right now, in addition to waiting on another pitman arm to come since even with the puller i can get it off the old steering box. so I guess its getting a new pitman too.

With the puller torqued down, tap the sholders of the pitman arm with a hammer. It should pop off after a few taps.

I replaced my front break hoses as I learned my last set was not long enough. . . pop squirt squirt

While I was in there, I replaced the front shocks, as they were still factory length.

I replaced the worn out radiator (it needed replacing even before that big mean bush ran out in front of me, but really needed iit after) replaced the hoses and tstat while I was there. Always wondered why my CJ was so cold blooded, even here in the desert, P.O. had removed the tstat and just run without one.

Installed new set of OEM fender flares. Threw on a new swing away spare carrier I got from 4wd.com - you get what you pay for. Continued to scratch my head about my fuel line routing in the front.

Tomorrow looks like a grounding kit for the fiberglass tub and throwing in the rear wiring harness.

I replaced the wiring inside the steering column because my lights were shorting out and that was the only original wiring left in the entire Jeep. It worked. WOOP WOOP!
ALSO straightened out the steering wheel. Still don't have a working horn but I can scream pretty loud. HA HA!

YAY! One less thing, one less, one less.

I dressed up some of the wiring. Routed a wire through my windshield frame for my new rear view mirror with map lights.

Getting close to turning the key in it for the first time since tear down.
