Put in my new Hella horns on a sweet custom bracket I made out of a home depot shelf support, wired the horn connections in the steering wheel after dismantling and polishing the connections under the steering lock ring, and replaced the bent steering wheel with a grant GT 771.

I'd post pics, but... I'm still too new.

Had the new M.O.R.E Offroad spring hangers welded on. At 3/8" steel, they should hold up better than stock.

Now to strip frame back to shackles to clean up and paint new metal ans frame. Then i can put pn new rear springs.

Looked at it and cried. Still having timing issues, so I just watched it sit in my driveway on a perfect day to celebrate Go Topless Day....ugg

Me three !! If I ever get the chance to go to Moab I will have to drive mine there.

OK... I finally got rid of those lame strap yokes on the front drive line. I also replaced an improperly installed front output seal. i think that was my transfer case leak.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

I went to Moab with some buddies in high school. We went for the rock climbing (hands, feet, and chalk style) and the mountain biking. I felt like I was missing out huge sitting there watching a YJ crawl up some nasty route while I sat on my bike seat. Needless to say, SUPER jealous!

Today I replaced the BS mid-sized sedan shifter knob on my T 18 with a homemade 8 ball one I bored and threaded (bought the ball from a billiard hall $8).
