That is the lower control arm. The zerk you see is on a Currie JJ.


I buttoned up a few things on the drive line and fired it up for the first time in a month.

Eventually those zerk fittings will get replaced for 90 degree fittings so I won't have to drop a bolt to get at them.

Drove mine to work like i do everyday, but i was bored today so i was looking up reviews on what people had to say about the Jeep Wrangler. I found one guys Cons statement interesting.
Cons.
Vehicle pulls towards mud and dirt. Vehicle often doesn't like to wait in traffic and goes offroad to avoid it.

I thought this was an awesome review.

I gave her a good 8 mins at the power wash, cleaning every last spec of mud and grime off her, so she is clean for at least a little while before the nasty roads of winter get her

I drove with a light foot and got good mpgs too gota love it. Getting ready for some big mods.

oh made this video too...

Nothing exciting, but my coil spacers and locking gas cap showed up yesterday. So the gas cap was put on. Now I've got to find time to get the coil spacers installed.

Good vid. But I hate when people put music on it. I want to hear the engine and suspension working.

Bought diamond plate cover for lower windshield frame on my 91 YJ and painted it black (looks sick when painted black), and bought some tube steel for front and back towing/ hitch bumper, along with 30 ft tow strap. Now saving for my lift kit, tires and wheels!!!
