DoodlesTJ Super easy one today - "Big 3" Upgrade. Partially because I've added my own amp and custom stereo set-up but also because I eventually plan to get a higher amperage alternator to speed up winching.

Pretty much just replaced everything with 1/0 AWG wire

DoodlesTJ Been a long time since I've worked on the Jeep - I've been doing a bunch of motorcycle projects.

Anyway, here are my Currie Anti-Rocks!

Long Beach

Went to Long Beach yesterday. Patrolled the beach and rescued some woman who got stuck with a Toyota Camry

wildman4x4nut Glad I was able to help.

For axles don't forget that some 4cyl TJ's came with 4.10 axles unless you are trying to get that D44 front axle. And IMHO I wouldn't waste my time on the TJ D44 front.

Have you regeared your Jeep yet? If not then when you get ready if you want help I'd offer my place to do it. We would have to move a few things to get you into my garage.
Thanks so much!!!

Checked and I had water in the transmission. Flushed both that and the transfer case today as well as extended the breather vent hoses for both. Will do the differentials next week even though I'm pretty sure no water got that high.

Also I appreciate the offer! I'm leaning towards buying a junked rubicon and stealing the D44 4.11 axles then eventually regearing to 4.88 in the future. Really just waiting to see how much longer I'm going to be stationed here, don't want to buy a junk rubi and then PCS

DoodlesTJ Haha nice, I had to get winched out too. No damage that I can tell though other than the fan clutch. It was fun, I nearly made it through on my second attempt

07wurubi Oh man, sorry about you sinking the Jeep. That hole is deep. Seen someone go in it during the "Snow Run" earlier this year and they had to be winched out. Hopefully the water that got inside didn't do too much damage on the inside.

wildman4x4nut Nice job on your Jeep so far and I enjoy the videos too.

Replacing Fan Clutch

Per 07wurubi I decided to check out Elbe ORV and might've sunk my jeep...

Filled the interior with water and also burned up my fan clutch. Glad I had bedlined my Jeep! And here's the video of my replacing the fan clutch

07wurubi Good job. Nice light covers, too.



I feel your pain on the nutserts. I planned ahead on my install and got the tool and appropriate threaded bit for it. Made it so much easier. The tool will come in handy for when I do the corners.

MetalCloak Rock Sliders

Finished up my full cloak install with the rock sliders. Surprisingly, this turned out to be the biggest pain of them all

Nutserts. God I hate them. I'd recommend to anyone doing this to buy an actual nutsert tool to punch/press them into the sheet metal otherwise they will spin and make you want to scream... 0.0


Also... here are some 3D printed tail light covers I made

Yours is bad ***. I follow your build thread. Something to aspire to for sure.
I was referring to yours in that post. And thanks.

07wurubi Are you familiar with Elbe ORV area? There is a snow jam run there on the 19th this month. I am planning on doing it. If interested, I can pass on the info to you. It's on Facebook as Snow Jam 2019! put on by the County Line Offroaders. Requires a Discovery pass. Check it out if on FB.
