My oh my had a somewhat typical day working on the heep. Went to replace pinion seals...the rear went relatively trouble free, then it just all went down hill from there.

Lost a ujoint cap, dry needle bearings everywhere, didn't feel like doing it right, so I nursed them all back in and slapped it back together. Then found snap ring had popped out on a upper axle side JJ, and that 15 minute job turned into an hour of fiddling around as I grabbed the wrong socket for the bj press. Got the front diff open, to find 2 broken teeth from the planet gears...so that's awesome.

I'm only on 2 hours sleep last night so I'm sure that didn't help.

So, you know, typical...fix one thing find 2 more problems. 2 hour job turns into 6. Baby Jeep still sits...no diff covers, still need to measure/set front pinion. Was hoping to patch a slow leak, add horsepower stickers, clean garage and pack for wheeling trip tomorrow...not sure that's gonna happen now

Anyway, sorry for the vent


Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Ah you bastard. I wish I came along awesome deals to flip like that.

Wheeled it in the local national forest. Now it needs a wash and I experienced wash board roads at 40mph for the first time. I cannot wait to get my Wayne tuned Fox 2.0's.

Well today I started my electrical project... first step was getting my aftermarket reverse lights on a relay on the reverse switch... was a lot harder than I thought (Im a newb with electrical still). Tommorow hopefully Ill get all of my lights wired up to proper switches, on a proper setup, install my rock lights, and then wire up a toggle (again) to my reverse lights.

The Homelink I installed a few months ago quit working, so I had to replace the board inside with the other one I bought and I wired it to only power up with the ignition this time. I'm not sure if having a constant 12v burnt out the board or what...?

I tried to Plasti-Dip my door hinges from where they're all beat up and corroded.. I was relatively unsuccessful. It looked too sloppy, so I peeled most of it off. I'd like to replace them altogether with black hinges, but I don't have any air tools and I'm afraid I'll strip the hardware. Seems to be pretty common!
