Just some GM on the recently purchased CJ. Changed oil/filter, checked fluid levels on the front/read dif's and tranny. I did remove the swing arm towing hitch from the front bumper.

Lower radiator hose sprung a leak, so I bought a new hose and replaced that today.
Also put some more DEX II in the transmission.

Had an awesome time wheeling then after I got done washing it, it wouldn't start. Bad ground somewhere or starter I get that click when you turn the key. And ofcourse it starts lightning and pouring rain as I'm hooking up a tow strap to get it to the garage.

if nothings breaking your not wheeling it hard enough

Never understand the hood louver thing. it's not exactly a sealed compartment and destroys another hood.

Hood louvers kill the heat and they don't look bad so why so sad?

nice looking louvers, although i hesitate to cut my hood. maybe i'll just get the side panels only. will call gen right. top louvers seem IMO to allow water, leaves, etc to get into the engine well.

Look it's a 4.6!
