I swapped my 3spd for a t18 in about 3 hrs but mostly because the input shaft didn't want to line up and that t18 is heavy.

Well I already have everything I need put together and sitting in one spot ready to go in. Is it easier and quicker to put in the transmission in then the transfer case or is it easier to put it all in as one unit?

I finally got all my grease fittings greased on the jeep. I didn't position the ball joint zerk fitting quite right when I installed the ball joint so I wasn't able to grease but I was able to get a long zerk fitting replaced in there and was able to get it greased. I was also able to force a grease fitting in my tie rod end-it didn't want to acceptit but I got it in there and got it greased.

Considering dropping the body lift out (PO installed) and swapping in a 4" lift. She's already sitting on 33's. figured I'd cut the crap and do it the right way.

Last night I fixed the windshield wiper fluid pump. The power wire was off and the push knob was too far on. Pulled it back and tightened set screw and now it works.

I wonder what the PO thought was wrong with it?

Umm, please read the title of this thread. It doesn't say anything about what you did last night. Geez....
LOL.... Just kidding with you brother. That reminds me, I need to work on my wiper pump as well....
