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.


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.

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.

Like my GrandPappy said, only way to learn is to do it yourself. Even if you break some things along the way.

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!!
