Last night/today I replaced an injector seal, changed the oil, changed the cabin filter, checked the front diff fluid and epoxied a crack in the intake tube. Tomorrow I'm hoping to get the other rock slider on and replace the passenger mirror and the blower.

JCR, they seemed like the strongest design and they were the cheapest as well. It's only taken me 2 years to get them on!

The ridge wasn't quite deep enough to lock so I slammed the flapper a few times to seat it but I got caught when I walked to the back of the Jeep with it still pumping fuel. I usually just stand beside the pump with my hands in my pockets so they don't freeze.
After fuelling up I went through the carwash and I spotted the service station attendant inspecting the handle trying to figure out what I had done.

I have been finding the diesel pumps, at least in the gta have the locking tabs still on them, i think because the usual diesel customers have very large tanks maybe? a welcome thing in the cold.




Also, finished the 3.07 axle swap today, programmed the gear ratio with Jscan, went around the block and went in limp mode with an incorrect gear ratio code pending, forgot i had to reinitialize the transmission, Jscan did that as well and so far so good.


This weekend i will be putting my old front diff in the wifes jeep, hers howls. also front struts kit, and rear shocks.


Then hopefully that's it for awhile.

I bought a 1000 lb capacity electronic scale from an auction sight unseen...it is now stuck in the Jeep. They should have had a person standing beside it for a sense of scale, it barely fit through the rear opening of the Jeep using a forklift.
I am going to try and attach a lifting eye to it so I can pull it out with an engine crane, otherwise it's a permanent passenger. Not one of my most well thought out purchases.

Jscan is amazing. One of the best purchases I've made.

@SteveROntario at least you were able to get it in. I always get a laugh out of the people at Ikea trying to fit a full bedroom set into the trunk of a Honda Civic.

Wired up my $40 Amazon Warehouse 50" Light Bar and finished install of solar panel on my jeep. Not sure if the 16ga expanded angle will hold up, but can somewhat easily remove to replace with 1/8" if necessary. All Galvanized, of course.

Got a 48" INNO wind fairing on order that will seal things up nicely and can lift up to allow the panel to extend with a pair of wing nuts. Need to figure out the pigtail routing for my Yeti 400 too and finish install of slider rack for my ARB 50 qt.

I have mods for cars I don't even own anymore purely because I don't even have the time to sell them

What brand of panel did you decide to use? What do you plan of using it for?

Garage
Pulled the rear bumper and hitch in preparation to do the hitch mod on my 09 WK Overland. Hoping that will allow the 32" JL spare tire to fit. Bumper removal was uneventful except a broken clip on the backup sensor harness. I will have to tape the plug ends together when I reinstall the bumper - I don't see any easy way to replace the plug.
