I picked up the muffler from eighty feet behind me on the road and put it in the rear after pulling up some of the carpet so it wouldn't melt like the gym shorts i picked it up with.

I kicked it. Hard.

I shampooed my carpets and seats for a 2nd time, and the soft top for the first time to get rid of the cigarette smell from the previous owner. It was a success, no more smoke smell.

basically i been working on my dana 44 here and there all day. Pulled all the cables and lines off. I popped the diff cover and I then sprayed and cleaned it with brake cleaner. I then went to harbor freight and bought some wire brushes and stuff to get to it. You can read more and see more pics here!/

Your Jeep came with a transmission temp gauge new from the dealer? I didn't know that was an available option (not trying to be a jerk, I seriously didn't know). That's awesome, I had to get an aftermarket AutoMeter for mine and it was a little bit of a pain to install.

From Automatic Transmission Fluid :

Most ATF can withstand normal operating temperatures of around 200 degrees F for tens of thousands of miles. But if the temperature of the fluid rises above 220 degrees F the fluid starts to break down quickly. Above 300 degrees, fluid life is measured in hundreds, not thousands of miles. And above 400 degrees, the fluid can self-destruct in 20 to 30 minutes!

If his transmission is getting so hot that it is melting coins into his center console then I'd say he is on borrowed time until things start going south.

One of the first Jeeps I've seen with smoked signals that look REALLY good.

It's a junkyard hard top was long gone along with anything in the dash. Life is that simple. Anyway only paid $500 for the hard top so it was a steal!
