I've said goodbye to 16 of my Jeeps that I said I would never sell "at the time". You have solace at least in knowing that your TJ did more for Texas than the Cowboys ever have in the past 21.5 years.
p.s. You don't want visitation if you really liked your Jeep. I've sold all but one of mine out of my county for a reason. It kills me to see them and the $h!t condition people keep them compared to me. I still miss my 1st TJ.

After I got that mess cleaned up the best that i could- I resumed the process of trying to shove the plug in-- no go, to old and lost my youth. BUT-- not all of my brains and experience. Ended up having to take a pry bar and pry off the frame to shove it in

Its hell getting old

Arty McGeep Wow awesome looking rig you got there! This is my first Jeep. It was bone stock in super clean condition when I bought it from my ma a couple months ago. So, needless to say I’m still kind of beginner as far as Jeeps go, but it’s coming along pretty nicely. I’ve been an automotive technician for 30 plus years, so not totally green...

NEVER! Those are post install pics and checking for rubbing, interference, etc.

With a forklift, you can go right to the limit and watch the opposite wheel lift, set down an 1" and check for bad juju. It is better to find the bind, rub, bend here than on the trail.

My rigs are always on jackstands and sometimes, I'll use the lift to fit under bumper, just in case. For EXTRA safety.



Note jackstands and forks:

Ya, I could never get it right, it either looked like it is waving at you or lifting it's leg on you

hubbabubba Also
Had no idea that a bunch of oil would drain out-- figured some, enough to make a puddle a foot & a half in diameter-- so best to put a catch pan or a huge doubled up old shop rag your gonna toss

Once I did those two things the job went way smoother.

Arty McGeep I was checking the articulation. I recently installed a RC x-series 4” lift kit. That RF tire was 28” off the floor with all the other tires still on the ground.
