Sorry, I didn't say things so gud , it was after the SL that the DW got angered

2" OME springs. Not real bad driveline vibes even before the MML/BL, but the DW reared it's head in the first 1/2 mile of test driving Then I drove it all over town yesterday without issue, but got on the highway for the ride home last night and had to pull over 3 times in 5 miles

Put the MML/BL on it just because...I'm gonna need it for the 33's anyway.

Anyway, yeh, I got slop at the trackbar, and possibly the tierod at the draglink...so all that stuff's getting replaced tonight/tomorrow. Then align and balance. Hopefully my control arms will hold out for a while longer after that.

Install a set of Rear adjustable Control Arms.
Got rid of the Transfer Case drop.

Greased her up while I was under there.

Next are skid plates for the oil pan, transmission and a better transfer case skid. I need a sale dammit.

I'm too old to play with Lego's, so I got a Jeep. 97 TJ club member

I hear ya. I hate to say it just makes sense right now. I'm not going to volunteer how much I drive a week, because I'm sure someone else is driving more. But it's killing me. Mostly highway too, with traffic blowing by me during 9am rush hour like I'm standing still. That, and I can't keep a THING in the Jeep at work or school. So I'm forced to carry around all of my belongings all day long. Textbooks, notebooks, laptop, clothing, etc.

I'm dreading the day it sells...

Go to tractor supply, purchase an under the bed box, bolt it securely in your cargo area with door facing tailgate and placed so that tailgate has to be open to get to lock on box.

went home for lunch and mounted the hi-lift on the hood.

As usual, a ****in 15 minute job takes an hour and 15.

Picked up trackbar bushing. I can't drive this thing over 40mph and it's starting to get a little depressing

I made this same mistake when i started college and sold my first jeep. You will regret it. I bought a motorcycle when I had my land rover to save gas...I would still ride it if I hadn't been hit by that car and flipped it. That being said, my buddy bought an '84 Honda civic hatchback, put an aerodynamic wing thing on the back and averages 50-60mpg...you can get cars like that for next to nothing, turn your jeep into a weekend warrior, and just suck up the loss of curb appeal on the car
