Changed the Oil. Lubed the front end. Tightened the bolt to from the exhaust manifold to the downpipe to eliminate a leak. Seafoamed it! LOTS of smoke, and now it's running GREAT!

You may not want to do that for driving on the street. Get or make your self some quick disconnects, having no front bar will make it sway a lot with out it and makes it easier to lose control when driving.

Put the rear upper & lower control arms in today. Still working on the rear upper shock mount bolts, broke both off. I was able to cut an punch one factory bolt yesterday, the other is more of a challenge but I'll get it. I'll measure so I can get the XJ CV shaft shortened this week. Need to put the new track bars and drag link/TR on yet. I'll be ready for some fun once that's done.

Took off stock sidesteps and the little flare pieces on the front, Blackend my headlight bezels, repainted my Flares and Mirrors, removed the sad looking Visors and got the two milk jugs off my back bumper.

Drove a bit with the soft uppers off and took it to a car wash and let my 6 year old daughter go to town with the sprayer, the wet ride home was well worth the laughter.

Started my frame restoration project. Did the passenger side rear to just in front of the door and my t-case skid.

Pulled the drain plugs to empty out all the rain water. Then I cleaned out the interior!

Looks good. So what are you using for the frame and how did you take the plastic inner fender out?
