How do you adjust parking brake? Any special tools needed

Just got off work, long day but anyway; today I bed lined front flares with rust oleum texturized and also did the speaker covers. Also talked to a buddy of mine who sold his jeep for a new truck and found out he had a set of bestop tinted windows. Met up with him, tried them one and they fit! He had no use for them so I got them for free! Best jeep day in awhile. Oh and I also took out blown sub and painted center console. Good day.

It adjusts in reverse when you have it pulled up and you can take a flat head and spin the adjuster through the hole in the back

For those who have a 8.8, the parking brake adjustment is in the same location. It's just a mini drum inside the disc brake.

How much better does it feel with the 4.56? Do you think 4.88 would have been too
Much? I have a 2.4l and going to re gear but going between 4.56 and 4.88

I have a 4.0L with a 5 speed and 33" tires. For me, the 4.56 gears seem to be a very good balance between power and economy. It is slightly more on the power side but that is what I want for off road and towing. The jeep is a little lower geared than it was with stock 30" tires and 3.73 gears.

With a 2.4L, I would go with 4.88 with 33's.

I replaced all the tie rod ends and front track bar last night. Everything went smooth with the tie rods but the track bar bolt snapped on removal. I even soaked everything in Blaster for a few days before hand.

The track bar and new bolt solved my bump induced death wobble and the tie rods brought the accuracy back to the steering. She drives dead straight down the road now. This gets me one step closer to putting a lift on my new project.

I just used regular GUNK engine degreaser...Let it sit for about 20 min or so, then washed it off...Works like a charm.

Well Scooba, I copied your idea and modified it a little, instead of just screwing the mirror onto the aluminum, I drilled and countersunk the rear view mirror base and bolted it to the aluminum, plus I taped the holes out and used bolts to hold it to the windshield frame, pic will be posted if it works.
Oh and I didn't put the windshield hold down strap bracket back on either, no need since I never drop mine

Ordered the upstream o2 sensor from rock auto. $40 cheaper than advance auto even after shipping. And it is the OEM NTK sensor

Changed my front steering stabilizer. I couldn't get the old bolt out so I ended up drilling it out.

IDK exactly, (but it is electrical,) but I do know that mine has gotten soaked in the past but I wouldn't recommend doing it on a regular basis...leave the carpet out and bedline it!!
