Lol, I'm not sure I could tell you how many perfectly good parts I've replaced over **** like that
This is my first jeep and I'm pretty sure I've been hit by just about every TJ issue. Cluster issues, no blower, air blend issues, air door actuator issues, vacuum issues, etc. Should have just bought a JK
I don't really know I would say for 24 shipped its a great deal but I don't know how long they will last.
Picked up some more paint today finished the fenders and finished making the battery mount. I tried to start it for the first time in over a month and its not getting spark. I can hear the fuel pump running. I may have pulled a wire loose in the harness as a few other things are not working. The voltage gauge is not coming on when the key is on the gas gauge is also not coming on it should be sitting at a little over half a tank and the tack is not moving when I try to turn it over So it looks like I will be pulling the harness tomorrow
Added some cheap LED spotlights from Amazon to my windshield using Smittybuilt's brackets. They seem to be closer to flood lights then spots, but I tell you the first 100 yards out and 20 or so yards to the sides is like driving in daylight. Not bad for $24 per light and $26 for the brackets. I did however manage to round out two of the hex bolts on the drivers side in the process. I decided to be lazy and just mount the bracket with the two that I could get out and save the joy of stripped bolt removal for another day. It is still sturdy with just the two bolts so we will see how long it is before I decide to fix it.
I forgot to take a picture of the light output on my test drive so I'll post a pic at a later date.
Saturday: Bought her a hula girl and mounted it on the driver side of the dash
Sunday: wheeled the crap out of her and got her dirtier. Brought a work buddy who has a 2013 JK with 35's that he bought on Thursday. I think he's hooked.
Mulling about flat tail lights. Any recommendations? I am ok with having separate reverse next to them. Haven't had a chance to work on rear swingaway bumper since I had to put a shed together over the weekend as well. I has a sad.
Got the hood cowl and fenders off after much frustration. I've trashed a couple T40 bits during this tub swap so far. You folks got any suggestions for the ones on the outside like the tailgate and hinges? Thinking about just welding nuts on them to break the loctite and getting new ones. Rolled the new tub in so I can start pulling stuff off the firewall and replacing it in the tub.
