Cleared out as much room for it as I could in the garage. I'll be ready to tear out the trans and T-case in the next few days.
I really need a bigger garage.

Put Power boost in over the weekend. Now the troubleshooting begins.

Half the lies they tell about me aren't true.

what you got is good though. You can change the oil on a rainy day, leave stuff laying out if you want, you don't want to leave 'em outside because it kinda looks bad may rain don't have to lug your tools to the backyard to put 'em in the shed when you're done,,maybe warmer than outside etc, a heater will actually warm it up in there as opposed to the outside,, etc......... Not that you were complaining.

Be happy for what ya got. Up until a couple months ago all I had was a gravel driveway and a 10x12 out building.

08 WK bone stock
00 WJ daily driver
99 TJ mostly stock 97 TJ cheap jeep
81 CJ7 very little stock

If you have some time, read through skiz's build thread. What he has done in that garage is stellar. If those walls could talk!! Frame offs, frame rebuilds, etc. etc.

Now I'm yanking out the T-case and trans and swapping in Dana 18.

I still never fixed the garage door from when I backed out with the door down. The opener doesn't work, and I have to lock it with vice grips on the track.
I keep having to decide, Jeep parts or new garage door. The door loses out every time. LOL

Burnt valve! That sounds familiar, I am in the process of doing the same thing to my CJ. I found a used Snap-ON valve grinder and seat resurfacer that was seldom if ever used. Got it and the roll around cabinet for just $75. So far I have used it on a set of 345 Scout heads and now my 304 Jeep. All of the stones and extra wheels came with it, along with the diamond stone dressing tools. It sure has come in handy. I am now waiting on the gaskets and one valve that I ordered last week at our local NAPA store. It is the only place in town where they actually have parts personnel that can find what you need.

Replaced my water pump. Now I can hear everything else that needs addressed. Well, I could until I put the top and doors back on for the winter. Thinking I need to rebuild the door latch/handle. It's about to rattle off. Oh man, that creaky screen door sound every time I press the clutch needs taken care of too. Wasn't so bad before I closed her up. Driving a CJ is a five senses experience, no doubt.

Out with the old, and hopefully soon in with the new.





Found there's a lot more torque on the rear springs with a SOA setup than I thought there was.
It was stretching the eye out on the upper mount for my anti wrap bar. Guess I'll have to redo the eyes with thicker wall tubing. I have some old drive shaft tubing that just may do the trick if I can find bushings to fit the I.D.
