Thanks to everyone at Jeepforum

Longtime lurker, this is my place to go for research for my LJ. I have been fighting a belt squeal, even after replacing belt, idler, and tensioner. Yesterday, I checked fan clutch again (felt ok last week), and it was bad. replaced it today, took 10 minutes, fixed my issue.
One of my no name rear shocks blew out the rubber on the upper mount, driving me crazy. Installed (yesterday) 2 new Savvy/Fox shocks, immediate improvement, cannot believe the difference. Will be ordering front 2 soon.
I already have the Savvy Black Magic brakes, can't say enough good things about Savvy.

Finally finished my tire carrier hi lift mount the other night. I like how it came out, and that it locks the spare on. Still going to try to figure how to lock the jack as well.

If your lock is long enough drill another hole in the plate the jack is mounted too and lock it through there

Always look both ways before crossing the stream.

That is what most on here use. It's pretty popular.

Mr. FedEx man showed up with my eBay winnings...



4 for the price of 1. Brand new.

We'll see when I might get the 5th. Might turn into 5 for 2...

Well I had the night to do a couple projects. Only ended up finishing one, the easiest one (external cb speaker). I almost finished my windstar intake, but the noise from drilling through the firewall kept waking up my son. Soooooo it will have to wait for another day. Man I sure miss having my own shop. Oh well the wheeling out here was worth the move !!!
