Over the last couple weeks, I have changed the oil, changed the brakes pads all around, changed shocks all around, installed 2 inch coil spacers, changed out steering damper, tie rod, tie rod ends, drag link, sway bar bushings, and had it aligned up.

Then my son wrecked his truck so heís borrowing my Jeep. I havenít driven it maybe an hour after doing all this work

Ha. With all the cash you saved on that winch , you could afford to loose 10 bucks on a chance .

Phone call to Dad; "Hey Dad, I think there's a problem with your Jeep. It's stuck in 4WD."

Those of you that have done the wj swap, with a thicker diff cover, can you run a straight tie rod or does it need to be bent to clear?

"Flushed" the coolant system today in hopes of it helping my overheating problem. Turns out I need a new rad sense this one is plugged and not letting coolant flow thru properly.

I always wonder how a back flush after a drain opener soak would work for 'reviving' a plugged radiator .
Since you're contemplating a new radiator , maybe you could do a test for us ?

whoops, forgot to correct myself earlier I jumped the gun on wanting to replace the radiator, we got the block, heater core, and rad flushed out with straight water using the 'back flush' method and the temp gauge was still tapped out at 260 with water in it all while the upper hose was cold to the touch, both heater core lines hot and the lower hose hot (and not collapsed). let it cool off for awhile and filled it with about 3 gal of coolant started it back up and suddenly the upper hose is hot to the touch at full temp and everything is normal, apparently it was the t-stat being all screwy all along.

I finally finished installing my new battery cables and alternator. I originally bought a 120 Amp replacement, but it was too big for the bracket so i had to settle for the 90 amp one. I even started it up and nothing caught fire or exploded! I hope this fixes the issues i was having. All seems well so far.
