Wow. It's been awhile. After the initial purchases (rack, soft top) and common fixes (water pump, radiator, exhaust manifold), I've just been driving this TJ. I changed the oil a couple weeks ago and rotated the tires today. I also wire brushed and sprayed the rear drums flat black. I went through a year and a half stretch where it seemed major maintenance and repair was needed on my 4 vehicles at the time after time, but the last 6 months or so have just been driving and oil changes. I inspected the front brakes and it looks like there is half the pad left. The PO must have had the rotors changed when she last had them done because they look good (little lip, no pulsing). I have 136K and it is good to know there is no timing belt to be done. Same with my wife's 325i. Things are good vehicle-wise right now. Might change when the early teens reach driving age.

Dropped the jeep off at TnTcustoms this morning so they can install my new axles and long arm kit with 4" ome springs. If anyone is interested in my TnT shortarm kit with 4.5 RE springs PM me.

Rotated the tires and replaced front drive shat U-joints and a constant velocity joint as well. Drives like a champ. And no more angry sparrows.

Are you sure that they are not just tucked under the seat and or carpet? The seat does fold towards the front incase you didn't know.

Installed a JKS BL and MML. The BL went on like a champ, but the MML was a PITA with having to take off the entire driver-side MML bracket due to having AC on my Jeep. I thought I'd never get the bolts broken loose on the OEM bracket that mounts directly to the motor. Oh well, it's done and looks great! I do have to go back and adjust the linkage because I ran out of time yesterday.
