I'm thinking the new design is better.....I could see the hard edge on those older styles getting hung up on the rocks and making a complicated situation.

Put new rubber all around. BFG 33x12.5r15. Sure drives a lot smoother without the worn down mud terrains that came with it.

Power washed all that thick mud hole mud off of it. Had to be 10 pounds caked on the pass side knuckle. Somehow the wash silenced down the ticking drivers side unit bearing as well, so that was an unforseen plus.

Got stage 1 of my rock lights complete... was hoping to get it all done, but the design of the LED light strip I had only allowed for two cuts so ultimately only the front and rear got done. The sides are all that's left, but I will take care of them when the lights get in. Gotta say I was surprised at the light output and how well they will work for night wheeling, changing a flat in the dark, check to make sure my tranny is still there, etc. Realized during the install that the stock fog light wires will not support these LEDs, so a standard toggle switch is what I ended up using. Pretty happy with it, and it gave me and my grandpa something to do for the afternoon.

Picked up parts from store and borrowed couple tools from friend and we mutually inspected Jeep.

Hubs definitely shot, ball joints probably not.

Tomorrow still got to pick up some hardware to replace a JJ. Gonna do that first, inspect the rest of the joints, then replace hubs.

All else checks out, then gonna order me a MC track bar. Return on the $230 Moog BJs ought to cover that and then some.

...before you say anything, $25 spicers made in Canada, $58 Moog made in USA.

Fortunately it appears I will not need to make that choice until I regear/HP30....then I'll probably just go with the cheap non-USA junk...lol.

Yea I like the bar turning in better too, the only reason I bought mine was because I had paint damage from an accident up higher than the standard sliders would have covered.

I'm going to try to siphon the gas out of my girlfriends Liberty.. We were in a bad accident a few weeks ago right after filling the tank up, and they're coming to tow it away on Monday and likely total it--so, as pathetic as it is, I'm going to try to put the gas in my thirsty TJ. Does anyone have any experience with those little hand pumps from Harbor Freight? Would that work?

Most newer vehicles have anti siphon valves, best bet is to pull the fuel pump and pump it out that way. Then reinstall the pump.

If it's going to be that much trouble, I'll just spend the $50 to fill my tank back up and let it go with the vehicle.. lol.

I watched one of my buddies use some sort of electric pump to siphon gas out of a vehicle he was trading a while back. It was about the same model year as her Liberty, I'd guess.

Oh well! Maybe I can convince insurance to give us $50 more

If there's any quick disconnects on the fuel rail you can pull that off and use a piece of hose into the gas can, then jump the fuel pump relay and let the pump do the work.

Yeh was going to say similar but hell if it's totalled anyway, just cut the line.

Got word that my Rokmen 1/2" BL and JKS Budget MML came in yesterday. Also ordered a Alpine CDE-143BT head unit. Couldn't take AM/FM radio & CDs anymore!
