Oh man. !

Was it unexpected? I'm so sorry to hear that...

That's rough.

Fixed my headlights and turn signals. Put my stock fender flares back on (Very Sad) and wondered what I did wrong with my Bushwhackers.

Why the 4" bolts? Not sure if you are planning on going all the way through the frame, but it's not a good idea. The bolts will just be pinching the 'tubular' frame, and under stress, will pinch that 'tube', and work it's way loose. drill the second hole as required and then you can get an open-end wrench up into the tube of the frame through a hole that is already there to hold the nut onto the bolt. Somewhere there's a write-up that explains it better than I am doing here. I'll keep searching for it...

Changed the oil and using a new Wix filter, see if it’s as good as everyone says. Was going to do the air filter but Auto Zone gave me the wrong one.

Put it on an RTI ramp. No actual measurements, but I was told it was about a 950. No, we didn't have a tape measure! I have no idea how good that is for a short arm lift:

On the way up..


And then the RF coming off the ground. Time to stop...




LF not quite on the bumpstop. No pics of the RR bumpstop...



My buddy scored what looks to be about a 1000 with his Skyjacker long arm:

Put in the new fuel pump. Dropping and installing the tank, with about 5 gallons, wasn't that bad, but getting the fuel pump retainer ring off was a pain in the you know what. Fixed the cold start problem, and the gas gauge is reading differently now.

Before I dropped the tank, it was at 1/8, and post pump change, it's up to a 1/4. Filled the tank to make sure I didn't have any leaks, and am going to run a tank through to see when I run out. I get 265 miles to E, which is about 16 gallons (in the 19 gallon tank). Thinking maybe it'll just read more accurately, but we'll see.

Tomorrow is the rear main. I'm going to miss the thing, but this will not be my last TJ. Too much fun not to have.

I'm going to pick up a second house in March, and flip it. I'll be working my rear off next summer, and it'll be easier to pull it off with a truck. I'm fixing all the quirks because I feel like I got shafted a bit when I bought it, and I don't want to screw anyone over.

I'll have another TJ within a year or two.

Washed it, put the top down, took the doors off. Drove to Home Depot to get hardware to put tool box on my trailor.

Put on front and rear tow hooks...small job.

Big job...replaced steering gear box. What a pain in arze. All went well I took my time but I think I screwed up the clockspring. I even taped a freaking ammo can to the wheel so it wouldn't turn. Anyway...airbag light is on. Is that a sign?
