Funny how that works, ain't it

Mine was slowly leaking too so I just took the whole thing apart and replaced every gasket on it minus the head gaskets and intake manifolds because they are solid and not leaking a drop of anything

(yesterday)Installed new driver side mirror (took 5 minutes while drinking) go to install new passenger mirror….. Does not have the right angle (of course, why would it). I do what any self respecting jeep owned does and take it apart and re/drill the bracket install it (2 beers later) and can tell my driver side mirror is 3 inches lower then passenger side (son of a ……….) now its in the box back to amazon and they are sending the replacement (amazon saves the day again).

Looks good. I may have to try that.

Getting closer to seeing this build done. Motor swap is almost complete and ready to head to the muffler shop.

Picked up up a YJ rollbar last night for the CJ. Still looking for a TJ style, but the price was right for this one and it is an improvment.
