Havent posted in awhile but here goes. So Just wanted to start a thread showing the many problems my jeep gives me and hoping for some advice. I dont know if anyone saw the thread of my frame rot problems but thats been fixed
. At the moment the shit i need to get done asap and also want in the future are as follows:
1)No rear track bar attached: Recently put my lift on and realized zone never sent me the rear track bar relocation bracket in the kit. Tryed to call and they never called back on this issue
. Does any one know the exact bracket i need for my 98 tj sport with 3" suspension lift, cant seem to find it. Also with install is there welding required or is it just straight bolt on. If anyone has a link to a video that would help.
2)Left rear shock not attached: After the lift in stall the bolts on the shock broke off and are now stuck in there( again the rust up north is awesome)
3) minor oil leak: looking like the seal on the oil pan might be going something i need to fix pretty soon.
4)Rattling in engine area when starting/accelerating: thinking it might be loose motor mounts.
5)Holes/Rust on floor panes: not really major just want to weld and line the whole interior anyway.
6) the Rear diff/axle: its looking just to rusty and sad for my eyes, plus i need to re gear after the lift and new tires. I was thinking of getting a whole new diff but i have to many other problems for that right now. Also which diff does this look like to you guys, im thinking d35 but im no expert on them.
7) Wheel hub/ brakes: if you cant tell from the pics there just the rustiest things ive seen in awhile and its kills me looking at them.
8)Upper and lower control arms: Honestly dont need them just want a JKS set for it.
9)intake/header/exhaust system: Want the banks power set up for this, heard good things about it.
10) Fuel tank skid plate. Got a pretty good size hole starting in the one that was on there when i got it.
Thats not everything just what the undercarriage has in-store for me. I recently sparyed most of the frame with rustoleum rubberized under coating after I had the frame welded for rot and put the lift kit on with the new 33s and no i didnt do a good job prepping. I recently took off the fender flares expecting the new ones to arrive but instead they decided to send me the yj flares instead so i had to send those back. When those arrive there the 6" extended set so I was thinking about cutting them to flat and i wanted to know if anyone has done this and had some pics/advice. Oh and i would like new speakers(blown), seats(bought the besttop vinyl seat covers) a radio and to plastidip alot of my interior things such as door hinges/handles, and dash. Kinda wishing i never had my parents buy a jeep for me while i was in basic training but hey now i have a project so thats good. Im hoping one day to do a v8 engine swap but thats WAYYYYYY down the road. Im not made of money here the air force doesnt pay us lowly airmen much but i do have access to a full shop with lift and tools so that helps. Any help/ suggestions would be appreciated from you guys, its definitely helped in the past.
All in all
with her but theres just alot i want to do to make it a better drive and not kill myself driving down the road.
