What would anyone consider to be a good price to re-attach the vacuum lines, replace front main gasket and valve cover gasket? Anyone please answer.

the gaskets should cost about 10-20 each and the vacuum lines you should be able to reattach for free.

Today I put in my new Sony Stereo and iVault and installed new KC windshield light brackets and mounted the lights, but did not wire them yet. I'm taking the winch and front bumper off for rewiring and refinishing and the other pair go there. I will wire them all at once.

Claims agent came to the house today. $7500 in damage.

I also retired her today from being my daily driver. I bought a 08 f15@ Lariat 4x4.

Now when she is repaired from the flop the real mods can start. I see metal cloak getting my credit card # soon.

Topless!

I made Last Mango topless for the first time! Then we went to look at a soft top (agreed to purchase and install tomorrow evening) and celebrated with Carl's ice cream (local joint, nationally recognized). Here she is!!!!!



Oh...I also filled the tank!

Drain the oil into a oil pan by taking off the drain pug then take off old diff cover. Put new cover on tighten bolts then remove oil pug on diff cover. Make sure the drain plug is fastened . You will need a oil extension for the oil cans so you can pour the oil into the small fill plug. Also you will need to get the capacity of oil amount recommended for your diff covers becuz the New covers are High volume, it's very important that you have the right amount of oil in. If have too much you can blow a gasket. It's not hard just time consuming. . The best way to find out is to call the manufactures of the covers and tell what kinda axle they will be installed on.

Heres what I did for my Jeep today, sinec I am not made of money and live paycheck to paycheck I found a staging area at a local school where they were replacing sewer pipe, I asked and the foreman said yes take a piece, the pipe is roughly 3'3" (apx, with a 2" tick bottom made of wood recessed up in the pipe so water doesn't rot it out, it does two things since I have no garage to put my doors and window's in I have them on the back porch, the window holder keeps little mouths from using my windows for chew toys, and keeps them in one convent place, the only thing that is not in the picture is the cover I made out of believe it or not a folding chair case.
Just imagine what you can do when you have to do something and have no money to do it with

Today I took off the wheel and sprayed the rear brakes with flat black rustoleum, I forgot to take picture of it before but it was all rust and stood out really badly. so i put a good 4 coats on each and it looks way better

Here the pictures with it off and on the wheel. Tomorrow im going to get an early start on the day and hopefully mount and balance my new wheels and tires, put my 2" lift on, new bumpers (some welding needs to be done for that), fender flares, and a new air intake, hella supertone horns, and a cb radio. All of which came in the mail today, yay.

So if all goes according to plan there will be more pictures from me tomorrow.

Yes sir. Sam in PA.

Great value. Just have to paint them.

I am a little concerned about the placement of the fog light holes. I'm anxious to get them mounted.

Cut a 16" circle of black plastic corrugated cardboard and installed it behind my spare.
It matches my jeep and I have a place to store my tow strap. No one can see thru the spare now.

That sucks. First thing yesterday they were back off. Might rain the next couple days so they will be on again. It just feels so small with them on.
