I figured as much. It just sounded weird when I read it.

Got it back from the transmission shop today. Total rebuild with new TC. I also had them put in a new shift solenoid pack and the TransGo kit I had. Shifts are smooth and solid again. I also noticed that the high pitched squeal I was chasing down is gone. I thought it was under the hood somewhere as it only happened at high RPM's like when you put your foot into the skinny pedal. I don't remember exactly what part they said it was, but something was worn in the trans. Hopefully I'll get more than 70k miles out of this trans.

Alright, First Post, got to start somewhere. Changed the tensioner pulley on the front of the motor today, and installed mounting brackets for the KC lights to mount on either side of the front windshield. Also planning on running a light bar above the front windshield from end to end.

thanks, i'll do some research - I've seen them done and will check out the YouTube vault for a DIY... guess I could check the salvage yards around here too.

found a "what I want to be when I grow up" in yellow for TJ to measure himself against...

a bit more lift and tire than we want, but well done - think its 4" lift and was on 33's so it stood about 6" higher than ours.
we've got no lift and are on 29's

same flares, bumpers, side bars, etc - nice touch is they have a subtle "Tonka" decal above the rear license plate.
