I drag raced my wife's TJ. I am hugely disappointed to note that my YJ lost. :(
The real test is who wins the next race with her in the YJ and you in the TJ. I suspect that if she wins again, we here will never know.

I'm almost done with my new transmission to transfer case adapter. I just have to drill the 4 holes through from the transmission side and countersink them. I really hope this fixes my perpetual transmission leak.

I drove my Jeep around. It’s been awhile but finally got the air cleared out of the cooling system. The temp sensor didn’t go over 200 even when idling. Now that is the stock gauge so I trust it’s reliability like I trust a fart after chili but still prior to the system refresh I was always at 215+.

I am going to drive it some during the week to see what I need to fix next. A local Jeep club is having a cruise in, yes I know it’s a Jeep but I do need some regular miles on the Jeep as well.

I did test out 4hi and 4lo on a ditch in the field next to my house. I need to see if one of the kids will take a photo of the Jeep actually doing Jeep things.

I drew and printed some spacers to use for clamping the shock reservoirs to the chassis.



Playing musical chairs with these reservoirs. I've tried 3 different locations, but I think I like this one. I've got 1 more spot I might try them tomorrow

That right there is cool stuff. I love doing CNC work.

New transmission, new adapter, and old t-case are back in the Jeep. I didn't get it to the point where I could spin doughnuts in the snow as I had planned last night, but progress was made.

Thoughts on a low buck limited slip in the D35?

Got a lead on a OEM LS set up from my friend that owns a garage, he got a customer vehicle in Jeep XJ that has it in the rear and likely the thing is leaving his shop for a trip to the scrappers. If thats the case he said I can pull the rear carrier.

Since my wife and I increased the worlds population this year the jeep budget was cut to basically $0 so I am keeping that D35 for a while longer. But for basically the cost of diff fluid, a new clutch pack, and some time (free) I could get a limited slip in the rear to help out with the front being the D30 with a locker... Or do you think Ill blow it up? Running 33*10.5s and I am not a hard wheeler, more of a good line, light throttle type.
