I fogged my Jeep to get rid of all the ants that moved in.

I've been busy the past month and the Jeep has been waiting patiently behind the garage. I finally drove her again and when I got home, there were ants coming out of everywhere. Luckily they weren't fireants. They were those big dark red harvester ants.
I also went and got a bottle of orthene to make sure I got rid of my ant problem, so now my yard smells like a turd (anyone who has ever smelled this stuff knows what I mean).

Free replacements? I wouldn't think they'd warranty tires like those.

I was going to go out and put some stickers on mine, but we had a freak storm roll in just now. I hope its dry this weekend so that I can work on her.

I called them and they gave me a quote on the Iroks I just ordered. He seemed surprised that they could get them.

Yah, but don't ask them to warranty anything that is considered off-road. The previous set of BFG All-Terrains I had on the XJ they gave me all kinds of crap when I needed one replaced.

I ran into that too on the last claw I had to cert at a certain store. I don't go back to that one. Store I was at this week gave me no problems at all. Ordered my tires up for me and got it all TCO. Nice only having to pay 126 bucks for 2 new 35's.

Nice work Andy. When you getta chance I wanna see a pick of how your front dshaft turned out.
Install wasn't as simple as installing a 1 piece shaft but it wasn't rocket science either. I installed the carrier bearing to my skid. I cut open a piece of square tube and welded some nuts inside so all I had to do was run the bolts through. The angle is nice.



great protection too for a LP.



played around for almost 2 hours today and had a smile on my face the whole time.



Good picture of the front shaft.

Yup, I like that setup. As long as the shaft needs to be the pillow block and two piece shaft mean a lot more to me now than it did 2 years ago.

I had to run it. The tranny pan on the 4L60E sticks out the passenger side and you have to run a 2 piece shaft to get around it. The dana 300 isn't the best tcase behind the 60e. My front slip shaft is 38" yoke to yoke so it is plenty long. I was checking multiple times today to make sure I wasn't maxing out the joints but there is still plenty of room.

To add to what I did for my jeep today I also got my tow rig repaired.

Out with the IFS junk.


In with the new solid D60 axle and the ride is so much better then before.


The truck on the ground.


We did two axle swaps and installed the new suspension on my YJ in the last couple days. Joe all I can say at this point is thank you very much! But I will add in "LETS GO WHEELING THIS WEEKEND!!!!!
Jack thanks for your help also.

That is awesome Jim! So this weekend your testing both the tow vehicle and the jeep. Cool. I'll be at the cracks this weekend too, can't wait to check it out and see the nearly stock YJ in action. see you guys up there
