Went wheeling today with a local club, alot of Jeeps few Toyotas and Nissans. Not much to report other than mine did very well, I spent the least amount of time on most obstacles. Talked to one of the guys and he said that putting the little black door trims on the light bar can stop the whistling, I'll have to give that a try. Can't wait for Hidden Falls next weekend.

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

Removed the OEM steps. One bolt came out a couple revs then wanted to stay in its nutsert. Cut the head off. Wiggling the remaining shank side to side and up and down got the inside half of the nutsert to fall into the frame. Fished it out with a magnet. I know they aren't worth anything to most, but the old steps are available for free. Pass step is metal with a plastic skin and unusable, except for the arms which attach to the frame. The driver's side step is molded plastic and must have been changed by the PO and is in good condition. Dropkick Slyders to be ordered tomorrow!

Best grease I would suggest is Mobil 1 synthetic grease. Look on the back of the grease tubes. You should see a symbol on the back like the pic below. Give's you a good idea of what to run with.
Thank you!

Jeepers do it in the mud. ;)

That's always scary to me. If there's anything I have learned from working on Jeeps it's that problems never go away.

Yeah, tis the nature of jeeps. But i think it was due to bad fuel sitting while i went on a vacation. It went away halfway through a new tank of gas, so im hoping that was what did it.

I always use fuel stabilizer if it has to sit for a while. Mine sat for a year while I was in Hawaii and only got driven 3 or 4 times. I filled her up, added fuel stabilizer and changed the oil. Not a single problem except she needed a new battery.

Good news is I swapped the speedo gear as I went from 33's to my winter 31's. The bad news is I saw whiteness in the fluid. I assume this means I got water in it at some point. Any suggestions on how to flush the transfer case? Mostly how many times or is once enough?

Found this stuck in my tire this morning, guess that's why it's been losing air.
