Installed a new Currie tie rod to replace the old Currie tie rod that had been bent/straightened/bent again. Just goes to show you even a solid 1.25" diameter solid hardened steel tie rod can be bent when the going gets really tough.

For those still running the lightweight OE hollow tube 3/4" tie rod on your TJ, the above should give you food for thought.

IF BL/MML, no, you should be alright without that. I am.

If you don't have the BL/MML, stick the spacers in - you'll need something.

Installed and calibrated a Superlift Truspeed Speedometer Calibrator. It took some trial and error to get it right. The instructions were wrong and the customer service guy at Superlift was a MORON. Rubicon's are different from other TJ's and the wiring harness is somewhat different. Once you get through the install and the calibrator is working properly it's a good system for unlimited adjustments for tire and gear changes.
Anyway my speedo after a tire change from 31's to 35's and a gear change from 4.10's to 5.13's is right on the money.

Got tired of Stabbo (http://www.frightcatalog.com/Hallowe...Clown-1005040/) riding shot-gun and went shopping for a full size skeleton to sit in the passenger seat of my right-hand-drive...(getting ready for Halloween!)

Since the engine is at the machine shop, I didn't do too much to it today. However, I have begun compiling my list of parts needed for the +30 overbore and all the other fun stuff (crank, cam, pistons, etc) to Stroke this bad boy to 4.6L!
I'm really pumped about having two 4.6L toys in the garage!!!

Installed Rock-trac transfer case, and Jeep-Medic Transfer Case and Engine Skids. Then took it out and figured out that I had my air lines for the lockers run in a bad location and when flexed burnt a hole in one. Time to redo those.
