What a very busy day, but I did get A little of the servicing done and learned a lot about my TJ. Oil changed, coolant drained and filled, and then the Transfer case. Here is where I got a little surprise. WATER in the T.C. and more than just condensation. A pink, somewhat foamy liquid. The transfer case has been working alright, but I am glad I did this. So we filled it up and I will run it for a few hundred miles and do it again.

I did not get to the D30 and D35, and after talking with the service manager, I decided to use good old fashioned cork gaskets for the diffs. So off to the store I went. Of course they only had one, but will have the other for me tomorrow.

I also learned what a fuel return line is today, and that I will need to replace that soon, as it was so corroded we were afraid to touch it. It looked like it would just fall apart if we did.

Also leaned that I will need tie rod end bushings too. Although mine are not terribly bad at this time, they are worn and will need replaced.

Here is the other big surprise and one that I do not understand. My right side front(passenger side) brake pads are wearing faster than the left side. This has me wondering. How does this happen. All though it does not need replaced RIGHT now, but soon, I want to figure out why.

I will get some pics up soon of everything and when I get those diff covers off, I wonder what I am going to find.

Up here you can get in trouble doing that. Huge liability issue if something goes wrong. That said last time we had a big snowfall, I winched one of my neighbors out of his driveway so he could get a running start since he went in too slow and ended up in the middle of his and his attached neighbours driveway.

End of last year after wheelsachurnin whole bunch of us had to do fluid changes. I had to change my transmission and Transfercase. You don't need to wait a couple hundred miles. I drove it for like 5 and drained it another two times. The transmission was 4 times to get all of the water out.
My guess is your passenger side caliper is sticking.

If you just do a stock replacement, they are cheap at any auto part store. Swap it out and bleed.

97 TJ with some stuff.

This...but imo, swap both fronts out if you're doing one. They're around $20 each, might as well do both.

The core charge is $35 bucks or something though

What about those inserts you have in the corner next to the grill, where did you get those? Never have seen them.

Yep, In every state here you assume total legal liability when you help someone out of a ditch = You tear somones unibody - you just bought them a new car.

Let them call Onstar/AAA.

Idk if you mean the lights tucked into the fender well, or the fender support.

...the lights are the stock side markers, & the fender support was already there, inside the fender. I decided not to remove it b/c my fenders are cheapo aftermarket replacements that the po put on & I didn't want to lose any rigidity in the fenders.

I just sprayed the fender supports with duplicolor truck bed coating

Bought oil change material the other night, have my parts for the brakes coming in today, and my new soft uppers will be here today or tomorrow. Can't wait to be driving the jeep again.
