Did you do the transfer case too? From my understanding, they're both vented on the very top. I filled my tranny full of swamp water once. Let it drain for about and hour, then filled it back up w/Royal Purple. Did the same thing with the T-Case.

I managed to find the tranny vent by just reaching up there on the very top. Sure enough, no breather tube. I really need put one on, but not sure of the most efficient way. Still have yet to locate my tcase vent

Well, this was really last night, but, drove my daughter home from dinner with my family with the top down and blasted some Phineas and Ferb songs I keep on my iPod for her. Then put the top back on because it was going to rain today. And the Hurricane is supposed to make landfall tonight and that will bring more rain to our area in the next couple of days as it makes its way across the Southeast.

Dismantle your rear drum brakes and check to see if mud has gunked them up. I submerged my jeep once and got stuck in the mud. Had the same thing happen to mine. Had to clean them out and actually replace the rear brake cylinders also.

Did you change all of the transmission fluid, or just the fluid in the transmission pan?...

I'm a ******* and there's like 3 runs on the passenger side, so I gotta sand them out.

Just planning on sanding the runs out and spraying the base/clear on the epoxy. The tub and front clip are crooked as hell on this jeep, not really gonna try to make it perfect.
Gotcha, been there done that.

I was thinking this too...especially if your rear brake shoes are not split. I had to replace mine quickly and couldn't find split shoes for my jeep at the parts store so I used regular shoes for now...could make it harder to get mud out of brakes

I hope so. Here's some pics of my normal hobby area. It's great but 30 miles away is a pain so I got the small machine for the house.
