I put it to work! I had to cut a very large limb out of an oak tree in my yard so I through a rope over the limb, pulled the winch cable back across and kept it off my house while cutting it down. Then dragged the large limb to the neighbor's house. That Jeep and winch come in very handy for jobs like this. Saved me about 150.00 by keeping me from getting someone else to do it.

I haven't done a thing to mine in about a month. Been waiting on Financy to replace the radiator AGAIN. Hope to order parts this weekend finally, also converting from electric fan back to mechanical.

It had 220k on it and #5 cly had 50 psi the rest had about 100 psi. It was still running but started to smoke a little. I am sure it would not be much longer before it gave up. We bought it right 2.5 yrs ago know in would be putting a motor in it so not bad. I will be making it a stroker sometime next year. This way we can still drive it and take my time building the stroker right and not rush it.

I made my own custom grille inserts. I made them out of gutter covers. If I find the link I got it from I will post. I also plan on posting my own how to since the other was done on a new model. I haven't seen a tutorial on the TJ. I also did it with out removing the grille or rad. By the my name is Will and I have been watching this forum since Aug when I bought my 2001. I see a lot of good ideas.

Replaced the tps tonight. Got to love a 2 year free replacement warranty. It threw a code a couple months ago and I cleared them buy disconnecting the battery. The code never came back but the performance kept getting worse

How did you secure the gutter guards?

I had originally made black ones and then when I placed the in the grille I decided I like the metal look. I used some zip tie holders and some super glue. You can find them in the electrician isle at home depot. I will try today to post a thread on my build. I will include a picture of the materials.

Today I replaced my ball joints, upper and lower on both sides. I installed extended fender flares. And I put my olympic 4x4 rocker guards back on after having them off for a re-paint. Maybe some pictures tomorrow after a wesh. Finished under the light of my head lamp not good lighting for pictures. The new flares make my 33's look smaller thought, so I'm a little self conscious.

Well for starters (or lack there of ahahaha {you'll get it in a few}) The jeep hasn't been starting as quickly as it had when we first got it from my sister (3 months ago). Opened the hood to find out why. Positive Terminal had a good amount of corrosion on it and the negative... Well lets just say I had to search for it. Got them all nice and clean only to find that the clamp on the neg. was broken. Also found out that it still has the factory battery in (from 2006). Almost didn't start tonight! New battery and clamp to come tomorrow.
Oh, almost forgot Granite Alloy Wheels, and Fierce Attitude tires should come tomorrow if not, then tuesday!!
