Ordered a set of rocker guards from A to Z Fabrication. I can't wait to install and test. Members of this forum rated them extremely well.

Ordered some new stuff from Red Rock. A complete set of Currie control arms, 1 1/4 body lift and 1 inch MML. As soon as the weather warms up a little, I'll get this stuff on so I can mount my new 35 inch BFG KM2s.

started the day by dropping a girl i met last night at the subway then went for an oil change and car wash. stopped by autozone and bought an air filter, plugs, wires, cap & rotor. now i installed the factory air box back in the jeep. the guy i bought it from had a k&n type cone filter. got the air box used from ebay. also the guy had one of those air tornado's installed too.. i didn't put that back in. i did all the work myself except the oil change. now, is it necesary to check the timing? i installed one of the cheaper bosch plugs.. i think it's called super power. then filled the tank. i'm getting about 185 miles to a full tank. let's see now.. did i miss anything else for a tune-up?

Well, I have no pics, but I bought my first Jeep just about a week and a half ago. A '98 Wrangler Sport. I have driven imports for years but have wanted a Wrangler for a long time and have given it thought off and on. My wife and I decided it was time.

It had an engine miss, and it had all the original ignition stuff, so I figured a basic tune-up was in order. I was going to start with the cap and rotor. The screw on one side of the distributor cap did not want to back off, and it eventually came off with a nice *snap*. The distributor body broke right at the threads on one side, so I found myself installing a rebuilt distributor. I would have liked to have installed an upgraded distributor, but the new vehicle purchase was enough expense already. All of the plug wires were pretty well baked on and I had to slice down the boots to get them off. The number 1 wire was a joy to get off. The air conditioner compressor is so close to it that I could not really grasp the boot and there were some wire looms going through there also. It took me a few days of changing a few things at a time since the holidays were upon us and since this is my daily driver.

Anyhow... I love the Jeep. Love it.

The float is bad in the gas tank, but I am going to live with that for a while. For now I am going to read and read a lot and decide exactly what I am going to do to this beast. I want it to be backroads capable but I don't need a rock crawler. My wife and I both know this is my hobby car, so some things might be done that are not entirely necessary.

i took my Jeep to the Gruber ORV park and went thru some pretty cool stuff....i'm pretty new to all this trailing and rock crawling stuff, but i imagine it was some moderate level stuff, but on the way back from there once i got back on the my Jeep was vibrating like crazy....its not the steering cuz i let go of the steering wheel and it drove straight so i think it is the tires, maybe due to the terrain they are off balance or something....does anyone know about that??....i also adjusted my rear brakes, now my e-brake works awesome!!
OH yeah, i also broke my red front tag off today on some rocks, and made use of my gas skid plate and back bumper!
