Realized the battery was dead after the wife drove it to the store last night. She left the dome light on, and with 5% tint on the front doors, nobody noticed. Jumped the jeep off this morning, ran like total ****. Went to leave work tonight, and the battery was dead again. Few minutes with a dmm confirmed the alternator was charging, and the battery was shot. Luckily, a coworker had his truck and trailer ready, as he was about to head to McDonough to pick up his mustang. Loaded her up(the jeep), and swung in at Oreillys. The dead battery was closing in on 6yrs old, and had a dead cell. Put in a new battery, and all was well. We dropped the jeep off at my house, and I rode with the coworker to help pick up his car. We decided we were now even, because it took some creative jacking skills to get a fox body mustang onto the trailer without ripping the intercooler off.

Also, I made a new wheeling buddy, and created access to a tow rig/trailer. I just had to promise him that if something breaks, I won't make him do anything besides hold a flashlight and hand me tools

FINALLY finished up my tube fender install. It only took two weeks. Just kidding, I've had the fenders done for quite some time now, but have been waiting on the genright LEDs to get here. CCFABS hoodline fenders with Genright LEDs. Excuse the poser flex shot, I was checking to see if I needed to bumpstop my rear end anymore. Those rear fenders are coming off, but I wanted to check to make sure the tires weren't gettting to the metal.

New oil pump drive assembly on 2005 LJ T 95k miles... Bought it w 80k m. P.o. Told me it had been replaced. Read the opda sticky, watched a couple of you tube videos, decided this job was more than I wanted to tackle. Hired a mechanic, he had never done one and only charged $275 incl parts.... Great deal I thought.... Question is, how long does this fix, stay fixed?

Thanks,
Larry

Ball joints? U joints?

Front cv joints, crawl under there and twist on em, twist on the front prop shaft too, it will show if the cv joints are bad.
