Changed water pump. Four hours on my 2.5 TJ. Cold weather here in the Northwest sprung a leak.

dont feel bad, it took me 3.5, mainly cause I'm 5' 3" with a 4 inch lifted tj with tube bumper and 33's. I couldn't reach anything...

Tossed new plugs in(APP 985), got the P0303 code to ski-daddle for ow. Also, tossed a wee "thermal insulator*" over injector #3. Hope it stays gone.


*it's zip tied garden hose.

Finally decided to install some in cab winch control switches. The radio shack illuminated and protected on/off switch I bought was DOA so I just used an old rocker switch I had lying around for now.

Took both of my full doors apart to repair and lube the lock mechanisms, not that I ever lock it. And installed a new pitman arm, steering is sooo much tighter. No more white knuckle drives over windy bridges!

Way to overreact there bud. By the way, bypassing the language filter is a big no-no.

Made this paracord grab handle today. Need to make three more for the rest of the Jeep. As you can see, it's a bit more heavy duty than most of the ones you see on here and online.

Installed my Trek Armor seat covers. Black/Coyote. These covers are well worth it.

Looking good. Mine were well worth it as well. Coming up on a year and they are holding up great. Zero problems with them.

Have you done a try steer test? That way you have an idea instead of just replacing things randomly.
