I know exactly what you mean... the more pieces I remove the more hack jobs I find.

Swapped out my T4 tranny yesterday and installed a T5 that I just rebuilt.
Drove the Jeep around today, since it was 62° F and sunny, and it is much better driving down the highway now with a lower rpm doing 65mph.

Keith, I hate that every piece of your Jeep looks cleaner than my dining room table.

Changed the fluid in my transmission and cleaned up the tunnel cover. How come I didn't know the T5 used Dexron III (ATF)?

The boy mounted his spare tire rack and tire and installed a CB and antenna (I still don't know for what). I cleaned the shop the majority of the day and change the hooks of the top hoist for chains, just trust them more.

Reworked my Lokar kick-down mount at the carb linkage. Used a nifty little aluminum crimp thingy to create a loop in the cable to fit over the linkage.

Also cleaned up some wiring under the hood and stared at my MC2150 debating whether to take the plunge into the JY TBI after spending hours researching in binderplanet.com

Decisions...it runs well, just want optimal fuel efficiency since it is pretty much a DD thess days!
