Right.

The Vanco 17" is on that list.

But BM pads and rotors first.

The plan is a Teraflex 3" with BFG 32x11.5x15 on American Racing Baja 15x8s



Can't wait to get it out on the trails and beach!

To be completely honest, I cleaned up the garage before snapping that photo. I had tools and parts all over the place by the time I was finished.

I'll check out North Shore Jeeps. Thanks for the referral.

Got home for work and put the front end in the air and put her on jack stands, took off the tires and dropped the axle as far as it would go with out disconnecting the shocks and such. Did a little snooping around and inspecting then got out my new el-cheapo grease gun and some Lucas brand "Red and Tacky" grease and put some much needed grease in the 7 zerk fittings. Man did they need it. Put quite a bit in there before it started pushing the old stuff out. Got it all put back together and put the top down and took the doors off just in time to ride off in the sunset with my co-pilot and navigator!!!!

Replaced left with right. Maybe you can see why. Was driving to a friends mountain house and noticed the subs weren't working. Pulled over to find out why and glad I did.



I do believe I found the source. That fuse was new less than 2 months ago. Put the original 3 year old fuse back in it.



Otherwise, I replaced the 4 tub screws for the tailgate. I discovered Lowes has an extremely limited number of options (1) when it comes to 5/16"x3.5" Machine Screws. So Grade 8 Hex Key Socket Cap screws it is until I can find some black button heads to replace them with. Also picked up what I need to attach the cables as well as some plugs for the stock hinge holes. Oh, and I Plasti-dipped the unpainted hinge area as well as turned over 70,000 miles earlier in the week.

Messed around with spare tire carrier. Then realized my plans won't work. Time for plan B

Replaced my upstream O2 sensor with an NTK from RockAuto a couple weeks ago. Mpg had dropped recently to 10-12, and exhaust had started smelling like it was burning rich. Never got the evil orange light either. After running a couple tanks through it I regained my usual 17 city, 19 highway mpg and the funky exhaust smell is gone. Oh, I'm running stock on 31s so don't worry, your mileage may vary as they say!

Changed the rear and front differential fluid.. I don't think it's been changed in a very long time.. Nasty! Also changed the TPS sensor, drives much better now!

Installed the Smittybilt G.E.A.R. tailgate MOLE storage system. Now have a place for a well stocked first aid kit as well as recovery straps, winch controller and gloves.

Tried to get in inspected last Thursday. I forgot and when I checked the tag, it was FEB!!! HA HA.

So being I had replaced the entire exaust and both O2 sensors, I had a check engine light that i did reset. But forgot to put on 50 miles to get to reset them. Today, its in for the inspection, hopefully no issues!!

My dad gave me his old CB radio that spent many years in his CJ5. Now it lives in my TJ.
