I need to plan things better. In the past, I was the guy who would take the tranny out to have it rebuilt, then put it back in. a few months later I would realize I need to take the tranny back out and take care of the leaking main seal.

My plan now is to try to have it all ready for April 1 to go in. I will be buying stuff every month except April. At that point I will be missing Chromoly shafts which can be swapped out at any point (most likely during the breakin fluid changes)
Between now and mid Jan I want to have HP30 finished regearing and 8.8 cleaned up and all old brackets removed.

Oh and I need to decide on what Diff cover to get for the 8.8: Riddler, Solid or Ballistic Fab. (I like the skull but I don't see a fill hole)
I'd go for the cover with the most clearance. My riddler has pretty good clearance...but I'm not sure which has the most

Thanks bud. I haven't been in TJ tech or jeep builds in quite a while. Not much has changed, hoping does this summer though.

Made a decision to highline my ccfabs 3" hoodlines.

Planning on selling my k&n CAI, installing a wind star intake, and installing hoodpins over winter break in preparation.

Waiting on my ford shock tower to come in the mail as well which is also a step towards the project.

Used Duplicolor Vinyl and Fabric spray to bring life back to my sound bar (sun damaged) and Plastidip the speaker covers.

Got the ATK longblock mounted in. Special thanks to Stockerokie and Willis36.

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.

It wasn't today but I changed my tires from 35x12.5's down to a 29.5x9.5 for winter.
Much happier with my tiny tires.

What I did to my TJ yesterday...

Rotated tires and put new spare into the rotation, did a complete rear brake job new shoes, cylinder, springs etc.. Bleeded the brakes added new fluid and changed the oil.

Started it this morning. Not really news except it was -13 with a windchill of -31. Had to use the Jeep to jump the wife's car.

Garage
Ordered a pair of double adjustable Duroflex control arms.

Also, my cooling fan ate my radiator on Monday, so after sitting on the interstate for an hour and a half for my girlfriend and her dad to come tow me home, I got my radiator replaced. I just bought a new fan clutch (the cause of all of this), but can't seem to find a replacement fan anywhere. Suggestions?
