If I were to bust some serious *** I might be driving it tomorrow, but I'm not going to be busting some serious *** lol .

I got a lot of parts to clean up and catalytic system still to arrive from rockauto. I would put a realistic expectation maybe Tuesday morning I'll be ready to take it to the dealer for final tuning on the OPDA.

Changed out the 1157 brake light bulbs in favor of a pair of 2357 bulbs. The 2357 bulbs are the same brightness in running light mode but are significantly brighter when the brakes are applied. I already replaced the bulb in the stock third brake light with a bright LED one so now they are all around the same level of brightness now with the brakes applied.

I found the source of the mysterious creaking noise!!!

The Rokmen uppers in the rear had wiggled loose a bit and were producing a god awful creaking noise on acceleration and bumps. Tightened the bolts all down and she's quiet again.

I spent all that time rebuilding the lowers when it was just a few loose bolts, not that the lowers didn't need rebuilding.


And now I'll be packing it and heading for a squeak-free ride at Uwharrie.

Interesting, I'm having a creaking as well. But I'm about to replace everything with a new kit so hopefully that will solve my groan as well.

Hmmm, I'd be all for a brighter 3rd brake light. Lead me to this part location and price.

I sat in a pair of those right before graduating this year. They were/are much of my motivation for a good career; they are so comfortable.

I like the tan coloring too

Just installed all the new u joints and centering ball on my driveshaft... Installed the driveshaft and took it for a test drive... Drives like a Cadillac, if you ignore all the other squeaks and clunks.

I just finished removing the chrome Jeep emblem on the front, sanded it down, repainted it textured flat black, and changed the spacing on the leeters!!
