I don't know if the radiator or wp is bad. going to flush it today. ruined my weekend because it was the first real outting for the jeep since we bought it.
Any signs of a weepy radiator? If its leaking at pressure it will affect the temp and let it boil sooner.

Maybe that is a bad way to explain, pressure/temp are related. If its weeping pressure the temps will rise.

Not bad at all. If I hadn't lost any parts, it would have taken 20 minutes.

The hardest part was getting the cable through the shift boot.

I made door handles for my junkyard half doors. I took a piece of plastic and some braided rope. They turned out pretty good. IMO I also painted the inner door panel black.

Pulled out the tranny to put in a new clutch and change all the fluids. It was a mess.

Been raining for like the last two weeks. Weather finally broke, top down, doors off, and took my dog for her first Jeep ride. I was worried she might try jumping out but she didn't

Oil change and tire rotation. Then the fun started: Removed bumpers, tapped off flares, and broke out the rattle can. 5 hours later flares and bumpers are bedliner black and the milk jugs are gone. I've been wanting to do this for a while and now my jeep looks so much better, at least to me. Now I have to begin thinking about the next mod. Man, I love my Jeep.

Installed my 2.5" OME springs, SkyJacker shocks and JKS track bars. Sure does handle sweet! Plus the rear JKS adjustable sway bar links cleared up a clunk I've had for sometime

So I just looked at your picture for a solid minute trying to figure out why you cut half your hood out in such a weird fashion then I finally realized it was a reflection, flares look great though

Two days ago, I put in a new stereo and new IPF lights with PIAA bulbs.

Yesterday, I changed the oil and filter, and then spent a few hours putting on a new ADDCO sway bar.
