Just drain the fluid into a clean container and re use it if you just changed it. Put some thread sealer on the petcock, and if you used worm clamps on the radiator hoses, toss them in the trash where they belong and install the factory spring clamps to stop your leaks.

Hey thanks!

Right now It has two 1/2" x 2 1/2"L bolts and nuts with rubber washers for vibration isolation. I plan to spring for the $20 pin set one of these days haha

Yea my brother keeps telling me to trade it in for a JK. I told him no thanks I will stick with my TJ. Lol but I will need to start putting money aside for the engine. It's going to need a full over hall soon.

Just swapped the rear U joint, would of taken around 40 minutes if I had my grease gun. Had to finger pack the bloody thing until all the packing grease oozed out. Now no more vibes and quite.

I think it actually makes more sense to flip them. I've never looked inside my door panels yet but was it an easy mod? I mean it can't be too hard kust wondering how you did it.

I had some 31x10.50's put on and now I'm getting ready to tear the tranny out to replace the fork return spring (a $5.00 part) Just had a new clutch kit put in about 1, 500 miles ago so I will be tearing the tranny out ONLY to replace the fork return spring.

The other day I took off the rubber bumps on the tailgate. I knew I had a dent in it from earlier but when I took them off I found more. Pretty sure they've been there since we got the Jeep though...

Perfect excuse for a tailgate skin.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
