Guys.....some of those pics are hair raising!!!.. Dudes, a good pair of 2ton Jack stands is 20 bucks from Harbor Freight when they are on sale.....All the money we put into our jeeps...would be a big shame if anyone got hurt and couldn't use them....

Got up Sun and did all the finishing touches (exhaust back in, bleeding, etc.) Had to drill out both exhaust studs... PITA. Just went 15 mi drive, absolutely zero leaks rattles or anything... clutch feel is a dream. You can modulate the thing like Neil Diamond.

Me old and friggin tired... lost count of how many trannies I've pulled in the last 20 yrs... at least now I have a drive instead of gravel. Ever try to put a SM465 in on gravel? Yep I done that in my old 3/4 ton.

Pete you know the old saying, whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. So you must be plenty strong!

Glad you got everything taken care of!

Speaking of things to get done, I need to put a trailer harness on my jeep. I'm going to pull a trailer up to TN.

True. My words may have been a little too strong in the context. A little common sense goes a long way.
Its all good man, I know what you were trying to say, just took an opportunity to poke a little fun.

We have all been in a situation where we had to do something goofy or insane to get by. Not doing that when we have the proper tools at hand is the key. We al need to pass on the knowledge we have acquired over the years to the younger generations. I can honestly tell you I am a student at the "School of Hard Knocks" and have yet to graduate. I have the scars and stories to prove it.

It sometimes takes a strong man to admit his mistakes. I preach to my Marines every day; "A smart man learns from his mistakes, a Wise man learns from the mistakes of others" i have no problem explaining the dumb things I have done in an effort to keep someone else from making the same mistakes I did.

Safety is paramount, so lets keep it safe!

But hey, at least I put a chain around it so there was no way it could slide off the air jack. I was doing my exhaust all from scratch.
One other thing I always do is shake the crap out of it before I get under it, I would rather my Jeep get hurt than me get hurt.

Sounds like you are leaving GA for TN.


I would rather have a broke Jeep, than no Jeep at all.

It's better than I've seen other people do. And what exactly is wrong with it? jack stands in the back and the air jack in the front? The air jack is often more stable than jack stands. Yes I know the pads are a little unnerving to look at but I preloaded the chain around the whole setup so as it went up it tightened. It is completely impossible for it to slide off in any way.
And like I said, I always shake the vehicle very hard before I even think about getting underneath it to prove its safe. So maybe lighten up a little bit eh? Its not like I just jacked it up and slid under and trusted it to my life? I have lifted many vehicles this way and never had a problem. If I had a better spot to lift than the springs I would have. Besides it is higher in the air than it looks, there was no other way to get it that high, I had to lift the back with the air jack, put the stands under and then move it to the front. You don't have to be an *******.

Yep. There will be too much orange for me especially since I'll be starting my masters at UT.

Those shackles are pretty scary. If this was a who has the biggest shackle contest, he would definately be the winner!

Took me months to find that little POS!
