Buxnort Didn't do much on the XJ today... Did oil changes and other maintenance on other cars, then new windshield wipers for the Jeep plus finally mounted front "Nashville TN" license plate frame. It had been driving me nuts because the frame had holes on the bottom and the holes on the Jeep are only on top. I devised a solution using a silicone piece I bought on Amazon. Of course, I had the whole solution in my head, went into the hardware store this morning, and the guy talked me into some other half-assed solution using a completely different assortment of bolts and fasteners. It's fine for now...we'll eventually get a personalized license plate, at which time I'll affix the plate/frame/etc. properly. (I did also disassemble an old Char-Broil grill to throw away...it actually had some bolts that will work perfectly on that license plate puzzle!)

Later this week I'll be replacing the front tie rods and sway bar bushings (probably a bit more work than windshield wipers and a license plate frame), then taking it in for an alignment.

Ralph77 Just kidding. LOL.
Fluid Filming is complete and that is just what is burning off.

Thank you.
I try.
Just got done blowing off the underside.
So hoping tomorrow she will be nice and dry for the Fluid Filming.
Then get the exterior detailed next at some point.
I say the same thing every year about this time.
With any luck after I detail the exterior I won't be touching the Jeep again till Spring.
Knock on wood and all that. LOL.

Ralph77 So more October/Winter maintenece.
The underside of the Jeep is now all nice and shiny. Well as nice and shiny as she will get.
I love my little powerwasher but the one thing I never liked is how the container is set up to use a cleaner.
Thinking this is the same set up with most home versions.
Awhile back somebody posted that the cheapo $15 paint sprayer at Harbor Freight can be used to apply Fluid Film.
So I grabbed one. Never got a chance to try it because I ended up buying a bigger boy compressor and the Fluid Film gun kit.
So it occured to me to use it to apply Purple Power and then just hose it off with the pressure washer.
Seemed to work pretty good for it.
So going to blow off as much water as I can off with my compressor and hopefully everything will be dry so I can apply Fluid Film tomorrow.

Disadvantage of a 4 link front (with trackbar) is you have to pay for an extra link and two more joints for basically no gain in strength. Properly built 3 link is plenty strong and wonít bind. You can achieve the same basic geometry. Both have better handling characteristics than a radius arm setup. I personally built a 3 link for my setup based on the Clayton crossmember and have been very happy with it. I did not cut a hole in my floor for more frame side separation and honestly the Jeep drives really well. If you have any questions or want to see pics or anything you can text or pm me.
