If your new Moog parts were anything like the ones I recently installed on my TJ, they come unpainted with only a bit of protective oil coating. If you want them to not rust, you must clean the oil off and paint them like the original components were.

Took the top off for the first time in a while, forgot to put on sunscreen. Took it to a drive in safari.

Used paint stripper to remove the remaining paint/power coat on my after market stainless windshield hinges. I wash it a ton in the winter because of the road salt. The car wash began to strip the paint off, so I finished the job. Now have stainless steel hinges, and they look pretty great. (No idea why the pic is rotated 90 degrees .)

Installed a hand throttle from Tera-flex. I'm liking it so far.

Swapped in some new Spicer ball joints yesterday and noticed one of the brake piston rubbers didn't look right. It's not sat evenly and the pads are wearing slightly unevenly on that side but getting near end of life anyway. I'll swap the pads when I get replacement seals from rockauto as I already have new BM pads, ordered as an extra set to have spare to save shipping/import costs.

Just when I was leaving work where I'd been doing the ball joints, I pulled my outer door handle and it went clunk and wouldn't close. Luckily the window was down so could open the door from the inside. Today I've removed the outer handle, bent the parts that were slipping past each other, and refitted it. I now know how difficult the wedges are to get out/refit as I've seen mentioned many times on the forum. The handle works like new again with everything lubed up too.

Replaced both of the hubs. In doing so I found the u-joint on the driver side in this condition. The passenger side is old (probably original, like this one, 158K miles), but is still functioning. Was going to change it, but while assembling the driver side I screwed up the new u-joint meant for that side, smh. I'll take care of it soon, but had to get it on the road today.

Replaced all 6 plugs with new Autolite XP985's. So I guess i never have to do that again 201,411 miles! Changed the oil with Pennzoil High Mileage and a new PureOne filter. Added a switch and USB ports with a dash air vent kit from Quadratec. Oh, and replaced a snap on the strap that holds the rolled up rear window.

Nice day in Florida, very low chance for rain. Decided to throw the factory half doors on.

Was hoping to get rid of the long crank, hard to start issue by replacing the Crank Position Sensor but apparently, that wasn’t the problem! Starts up the same way as before. Anyone have any good suggestions? 98 4.0 auto usually doesn’t start on first attempt but starts right up on second attempt .

Classic symptom of a failing fuel pump check valve designed to hold the line pressure after the engine is shut down. A trick that often works to alleviate the problem is to switch the ignition on but do not start the Jeep, pause a few seconds, then turn it to start -- if the check valve is pretty bad, you may need to cycle the switch on a couple times before starting to help prime the fuel rail pressure.
