Fixed a clunk in the rear that turned out to be easy! Loose shock bolt! Also installed a quick connect for my jumper cables and 1500watt inverter.

I lost my rear drive-line today. Luckily I was only going 5pmh as I was at a stoplight and just started going. Could have been a LOT worse had I been on the freeway.

No cap but I was thinking the same thing! I did solder and heat shrink the cables going into the quick connect plug tho and the metal inside is non corrosive so let's all hope itll be fine lol

Just greased the front end up. I've got 220k on all original ball joints. I grease it 3 to 4 times a year, the only thing I had to replace were swaybar end links.

There was nothing wrong with the factory cat and down pipe. Just didn't fit with my tummy tuck.

Talking

Replaced the pedal pads. PO had some silly AutoZone covers on and when I removed them I noticed the originals were a mess.

Also grabbed a K&N replacement filter. Now is there a huge difference in getting the factory replacement I have versus getting the whole K&N system(or air raid)?

I fixed my rear drive-line that "fell out" only a $20 fix for new u-joints and redone with u-bults vs the "straps" and nuts and bolts that came with it. I had to drill out the threads on the yoke.... wa-laa.

Hey where's ya get the pedal covers and how much? I bought the replacements from Quadratec and they wore out to look worse than the old ones in under a year and I only put maybe 9000 miles on the truck since!

hitch

Installed a hitch with a D-ring for rear tow point.
4 heavy duty bolts right in to the bumper, piece of cake.

Nah, just the 3. My entire e-brake assembly is less than a year old, so that pad is good. I'm sure you can find just the pad for the e-brake on the bay somewhere.

Just went outside in the rain & zipped in the 3 windows. Wasn't suppose to rain until next Weds!

Good thing I picked up the rear windows this morning & threw them in the back of the Jeep before I left for work today! Although, the back seat could use a good cleaning!

I got to wake up to my wife bum rushing me this morning with,"the jeep...the jeep...it's raining!" I'm pretty sure it rained in a one quarter acre area over my house only, honestly couldn't see drops on anybody elses house/cars/streets...etc..etc. Sooo, at 6:00 this morning I was drying, febreezing and putting my windows on.

ps #1 - The weatherman missed this rogue shower...dirtbag.

ps #2 - funny fact, bees seemed to be attracted to Febreeze. Seriously.

Replaced the entire rotor, hub, break etc assembly on my wifes Cherokee. She likes to take her truck offroad often and snapped a damn tire off. The studs were probably 16 years old though, so it had to happen eventually.
Good times.. on the brighter side...
I found an excuse to buy more/new tools!
