Either way it isn't slipping like it was before, and I still need to re-gear.
Dang... This highline kit I have opens up the fender wells a lot, makes my 35's look like 33's! For the same look as your Jeep I'd have to go with 37's!

Tight Jeep either way!

Oh, and in order to stay on topic, I burnt half a tank enjoy the beautiful mid 70's day today! Tomorrow I'll probably polish off the tank

Nope. Hydraulic clutch slaves are self adjusting.



To stay on topic like Pumpkin hehehehehehe, I drove my TJ in the rain all day today. Going back and forth from school and home.

Temperature, humidity, etc could have something to do with the slipping. I haven't even looked under my own Jeep, but if the clutch pedal is adjustable, perhaps the clutch master is already partially depressed taking some tension off the clutch leading to slipping?

edit: and UPSucks, check your PMs.
Yes, I know exactly about this issue, and is why I know how a clutch works now!

In my '68 Commando I had about 6 years ago I had just replaced the clutch because I fried it trying to pull someone out (should have been in 4lo). Well I forgot to bolt the tranny to the crossmember, and when I went around a corner the tranny shifted to the right and the linkage popped out (had a manual clutch) at which point the clutch went to the floor and was stuck in gear. Stalled it and had to start the Jeep while in 1st gear because I couldn't control the clutch (with it bucking me) and rev the engine and shift to sync the gears up so I could push it into gear (was a *****!) Well because I couldn't shift into first again (no syncros for 1st or reverse) I did a 90* turn into the driveway going about 35, and fishtailing the Jeep on the gravel road Made it almost all the way home and had to have my dad tow me the rest of the way home in order to fix the linkage.

oh and back on topic. I welded studs to a Ballistic flex joint housing. (control arm design change, or I would have ordered it with the stud) and to two poly bushing housings.

Once in a while I will downshift without the clutch, just merely to save the clutch. Doesn't hurt anything.

Who knows,,,,,My Jeep kind of finds ways to fix itself. Except for the damn U-joint on the rear part of the driveshaft I had to replace a couple of weeks ago.

Vaccuumed the interior, applied my new registration sticker, and drove around town. Still have the soft top on but with tomorrow possibly hitting 80 degrees, it's goin' down and the doors are comin' off...permanently! Nice to see naked jeeps again after last week's snow storm.

Wave people!!

Aha! Filling it up with gas probably fixed your clutch!

Well I have a theory. When I drown my jeep the clutch went out. (among other things I am trying to forget) When I got the clutch out to replace it the clutch itself looked fine. Then I found the pressure plate was packed tight with silt from the water hole I was in. So my theory is you had something stuck in your pressure plate. Then when you toped off the Clutch the clutch was able to disengage further than it had been. This extra travel from a full clutch master cylinder freed up whatever was stuck in there and let it out.

Just an idea. "you make the call!!"

changed my oil, painted the rust-spotted rim for the spare tire flat black (I have the stock steel wheels, and it looks sick...so I think I'm going to pain the other 4), power washed the mud off it, vacuumed the interior, but didn't give it a proper wash because I am going camping this weekend!

Finally got time to do a front end alignment and I'm glad I did cause the toe in was almost a whole inch. (Installed a JKS adjustable trackbar 2 weeks ago and was driving with an uncentered steering wheel which was annoying) I also adjusted the front pinion angle to match the front drive shaft and now all of my driveline vibes are completely gone. (I adjusted the rear pinion angle a few weeks ago). While I was crawling around under the front end I found out that my left axle seal is leaking so I cleaned it up and now I'm gonna monitor it for leaks. I'll be servicing the diffs next weekend probably and if the leak keeps up I've been looking for an excuse to regear them anyway. Don't tell my wife.
