Heat AND cold can surprise once in a while. Many moons ago as a kid, My dad's company was called to pull a splined taper fit bull gear on a IH dozer. We were Caterpillar guys, never worked on the IH stuff. Well the IH guys had tried with their 70 ton ram and I had a 100 ton'er. I went out all cocky and embaressed myself when it would not budge. It was over 110 degrees that day and by noon, we were still heating with a rosebud. The main problem was this trunion/ball thing that was super expensive could not get over 350/400 degrees or it would anneal. We went to lunch and left the pressure on the ram, when we returned it was still at 85 tons but the temp stick marking (old school, no IR temp readers back then) we used as a heat indicator was melting telling us we were over heating this trunion. Someone grabbed the water jug (freshly filled with ice) and threw the entire contents on the area. Immedietly it popped loose, with force like I had never seen before. The 1" x 3" arms were flying all over as the ram hit the tarmac. No one was hurt but it sure made an impression.

When I removed the computer it left a hole where the wiring harness came through the fire wall. In addition I misplaced the cover below the heater when i did the upgrade so it is time to make some covers and fill those holes.



The best way I have found to make a pattern is it use masking tape, draw want you need, remove it and stick it to the metal you want to cut out in the form of that pattern.

A test fit is then required





I love powder coat. It is the best form of protection, put it on, cure it for an hour, let it cool and you are done, unlike paint where it can take enamel 7 days to fully cure.



A little red sealer and wipe it clean and all done and sealed. The Powder is a better match than what the picture represents. I took this with a flash, with normal light you can not tell the different between the powder and the paint. Those are stainless screws.

I did mine the easy way. I bought a new steering box at Autozone and made them take it off.

They grabbed a puller and big impact and started to pound on it.
I walked away fearing what would happen when something popped.

It finally came off and the weight of the impact kept things from flying....

I always use an impact. The added bump from the gun moves the arms off way easier than the constant pressure from a wrench.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

With the drag link at that angle you will experience bump steer when going over bumps.

I had the exact same angle and got rid of it by doing a tie rod flip. There is no down side to it.

See this post http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/cj...l#post13369194 to see what it takes.

I will loan out the reamer, so you do not have to buy the tool, all you have to do is pay the shipping and insurance both ways for the tool (I think the small flat rate USPS bos is no 5.95 one way) so all you have to do is buy the inserts.

My web site has additional pictures

I also just did the front steering stabilizer shock (stock)

Would make a nice addition to your '7 IMO!

GlennLever,

I saw your pics on tying your driving lights into the high beams. I have been trying to figure out how to do that for some time now. Do you have a schematic for your setup? It looks pretty slick. I need to get a couple of those old GM buss bars from a junkyard first.
