Got a little carried away in the dunes and discovered the limits of my rear suspension. Bump stops need some adjusting. I blew out both rear shocks. No worries though they were tired old Procomps installed years ago by the PO.

I do that too, but occasionally there is no choice.

Fixed the reverse light switch coming from the transmission. Hasn't worked since PO, now I can see what's behind me at night.

I was getting tired of running over small cars I couldn't see without even noticing. Probably pancaked two smart cars and a prius.

Trying again to replace my rear driveshaft ujoints... bolt head is rounded on the top strap and I can't seem to get any room to pound on a socket, and the open ended 8mm wrench isn't turning it. Any advice short of welding a nut to it? I don't have access to anything beyond basic tools right now. I've gotta get this thing replaced ASAP. I don't want to end up stranded on the side of the road, and the weather is too perfect to not be driving

I got the rear straps off finally... Is it going to be okay to not pull the driveshaft itself to change the joint?

Pics of the Poison Spyder louvre install. I put a piece of reflective blue vinyl under the Poison Spyder logo.

Let us know how the monstaliner turns out. Is it rubbery or soft? I was thinking about linex or something thats hard.

How are you going to do it? Under the Jeep? If you got the straps off why can't you just slide the DS out and do it on a bench or a press?

It's no mine but its my bosses sons TJ. Installed a BB with Bilstiens and 32x11.50x15 BFG all terrains. I'm very happy with the way it looks and rides. He just needs to paint the fender flares.

Well it took a little bit but I finally realized it was okay to pull it out completely. I was thinking I'd have to pound the caps off of the front (rear ds) ujoint and get the joint loose before pulling the shaft.

Cap is still seized on the rear. I beat the hell out of it with a socket and hammer on the bench and still can't get it out.. so I took the driveshaft to a shop with two new ujoints and I bought new straps too. Waiting to hear back from them to see if they're able to press it out for me. Assuming this guy is doing this for me under the table at a moderately common franchised automotive repair shop, how much do you guys think is fair to pay him? He didn't mention any sort of payment, and I was thinking about giving him like $30 unless there's a legitimate charge. Is that reasonably generous considering I took the shaft out and brought it in?

Using the Bore Scope from work to make sure there is nothing wrong internally while its out for a new Luk flywheel and clutch kit. One perk of being U.S. Army Aviation.
