Most likely later but then what will I do in my retirement? LOL.
Redjeepster1 is like me minus the bouncing off of every rock and tree he can. If you wanna improve the handling look into building a nice lift with some quality components

kadetklapp Over the holiday weekend a friend and I managed to get the “new” junkyard transfer case installed. We popped the old original one apart and were dismayed at finding nothing obvious wrong with it. This was odd since in 4hi the box was screaming at 20 mph and as soon as you let off throttle it would pop the case into neutral and you had no go. Only thing that worked reliably was 4-lo. Upon opening the case we only found a noisy input bearing and some slight but uniform tooth wear. There was a lot of chain slack however. Anyway, new case works great and the Part Time light works which is a first. While on the test drive (about 20 miles of highway and trail) it up and died. Crank sensor.

The rest can be done by the future owner of my Jeep. LOL.

Have a picture before the talent ran out and I almost flopped it on both sides and ended up hitting it with my purse until it went.

Ralph77 The more I think about this the more I think I have to talk to my buddy about doing this.
He knows how to weld and has lift in that awesome garage he just had built recently.
He does work on the side to help pay for it but works for the town now.
My old boss at the store.
Definitely cut me a break but even if he did it for free, which there is an outside chance
he might, I would still have to give him some money anyway. LOL.
Figure I would do all the grunt work and let him trim the stiffeners and do the welding.
Then I could deal with the seam sealer and chassis paint/undercoating.
He is the guy who gave me that drill press. It was not even the cheap HF one but the next
one up. They still sell it and it costs $140. Of course that is before you use a coupon. MLOL.

Ralph77 I might have to do this sooner rather then later.
Just doing the centers for a DD seems like a really good idea.
Of course when I say sooner I mean maybe next year. LOL.

Yes because I wanted extra material to weld the floor pans to as the were getting replaced. Though I also have cross braces that go to my 2x6s

RedJeepster1 New tires on my fiancé’s DD. Went with 31” Falken Wildpeak AT3’s. We like them on our chevy. Hopefully they will be just as good on the Jeep.

curtis2010 Found the electric cooling fan fusible link on my 89 XJ!

https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/top...ink_source=app


Two years later I finally found it!<br />
<br />
Im renovating my Jeep now so had this on my to fix list. Sure enough the positive wire for powering the fan runs all the way over to the passenger side of the vehicle! It terminates at the starter motor relay (not to be confused w the starter solenoid) as do several other positive leads. The fusible link is right there between it and the starter motor solenoid. T'was a ***** to trace down.<br />
<br />
The fusible link had done its job and fried. However, it is apparently common for them not to break the connection entirely. I was still getting a few volts over at the fan relay.<br />
<br />
The positive lead runs across the front of the vehicle in the wire harness which is secured behind the bumper/grill. <br />
<br />
Just before it reaches the starter motor relay it comes to a narly wire harness junction in a hard to reach spot which makes it difficult to track down. <br />
<br />
The red positive lead termniates near the starter motor relay in a fat black rubber splice cover. Here it connects to the fusible link wire (green) and on to a ring connector which attaches to the starter motor relay stud. <br />
<br />
Tagged w green tape as I tracked it down.<br />

Ralph77 So I used some of that rust converter stuff, Duplicolor Rust Fix, and it did turn what little bit of rust left that was black yesterday.
Waited the 24 hours and painted it today. Just used some primer, black paint, and clear coat (no idea why I clear coated it)
that I had around.
Let it dry, then get the seat cleaned up best I can, and get my seat cover on it.
Maybe tomorrow.
