Cool pic! ^^^

Drove the Jeep yesterday for the first time on pavement. The steering is squirrelly and the front brake pads are so worn down that the driver side caliper piston got pushed out a little too far. Yay. Had to ORDER brake pads from the parts store, they'll be in today but I've got an all-day fundraiser to go to.

Yesterday took her out front figured out why the wipers wouldn't work, not tight enough to ground it. Got them working yay! Painted inside windshield frame (it was red but the rest of the jeep is pink & black), steering column too. That was driving me crazy. Closer & closer, but these little things take time. Plan to work on steering column bushings later. Maybe a ride.

How much pressure in your tires? Too much will make it squirrelly.

Got some more of the compressor hooked up. Still waiting for my pressure switch.
I didn't realize how much work it would be.

Changed the oil, changed out the PO's porsche seats for original CJ seats. Need to sort out my messy steering column/shaft next.

Thanks, I'll have to check it out. I think the toe is out too. All I know is on a bad section of road yesterday, the bouncing around sent me into oncoming traffic.

I installed all new stainless steel brake lines. They are prebent but they get a little twisted and tweaked for packaging and then you have to do some forcing and tweaking to get them installed. They're not a perfect match. They are the CLASSIC TUBE brake line kit from 4wd hardware. I'm disappointed they're not bent the same as the factory ones and removing and reinstalling the power steering lines on the steering box is such a pain I had to walk a way for a while. So if you're thinking about doing this yourself. I would not recommend it unless yours' are leaking, stripped or whatever.

It leans a little to the passenger's side. I'm trying to level it back out.

I originally planned to put it on that side, but figured the closer to the compressor I could keep the oiler, the better.
I wasn't sure if it would hurt to be that far away, I really don't have a clue as to what I am doing. As usual.....

Put a disconnect up at the front bumper so you don't have to open your hood every time you need air.

I also have one in the back.
