Drilled the holes for my Rocker Panels, Got them Bent Up... OH Yeah.. lost my Job so no more FREE steel or parts for me... Oh well..

Adjusted rear pinion

Finally got around to setting by rear pinion after installing a belly up. Wow what a difference, it is like a brand new jeep.

Can't wait for Thursday. 33" swampers get sold and 35" MTRs with Kevlar arrive.

Replaced the rear pinion seal...again. Previous seal lasted 2-1/2 years. Installed a new Mopar one this time.

I don't normally go for the various engine cleaning aids, but with all the Sea Foam comments, I had to try it.
At 126k miles, I can't usually use 5th gear on the highway, it just loses speed and I have to drop back to 4th. Added Sea Foam to a tank of gas and drove her around town a bit, then took her on the highway. No major acceleration difference with the little 4-banger, but I put it in 5th and was able to hold speed! Major accomplishment. I was even able to accelerate somewhat in 5th gear, that was unheard of before!
I will give it a few tanks of gas, just to make sure the Sea Foam itself isn't adding to the hp, but I am definitely impressed!

Installed new driver's side door window after busting both door windows. After getting stuck and locking my keys in the Jeep in the middle of nowhere, and trying to figure out how to open the Jeep for two hours, I had to bust one window to get inside. Unfortunately I ended up breaking both windows. Don't ask, it was a very bad day.

Taking it to the dealership to have the passengers side rear axle bearing and seal replaced under warranty. Started leaking grease into the brake rotor.

well,i guess that means your injectors were dirty then..im gonna have to get a can today and see if t makes my 135,000 mile tj run any diffrent as it does run so good i wouldnt think it could get any better..
kinda like my 3 chevys with over 200,000 miles on them,,ive ran lucas every few months and they couldnt run any better so i try to stick to a good thing.
but seefoam will get a shot again today just for my own satisfaction..
