Changes the oil, filter and air filter. Polished it up a bit and went to a cruise in with 200 jeeps. Every make and model of wrangler/cj/willys you can think of.

Finally going to contribute to this thread, completed the popular ZJ tie rod conversion. Very simple and actually makes my jeep ride much better, although that my be mostly in my head. I'm hoping its the last piece of the puzzle for fixing my DW

Flipped over my smiley face. It was faded bad. Now it'll be green for a few more months. Not bad for $2. Lol

Pulled my front axle shaft on the passenger side. Noticed a vibration coming from the front Driveshaft. While I was driving out of town. Stopped and found 3 inches of play in the DS when I twisted it. Turned around, came home and noticed my axle joint on the passenger side was almost snapped. So replacing that and the hub today

I've got a fire extinguisher mounted in the spot, then my mag-lite slid between it and the body.

Replaced a ton of fluids this weekend.

Front and Rear diff with Royal Purple
Transmission with Royal Purple

So far I am liking the Royal Purple, I have noticed that my transmission feels a little smoother now.

Finally got around to installing my Rigid Duallys, still need to put the switch in the dash though, its just laying in the floor right now.

The hardest thing was replacing the blower motor resistor! They could not have placed that thing in a more awkward spot. It probably took longer to do that then to change all of the fluids! Feels good though to have all 4 speeds with the A/C again.

I dont recommend changing your oil pressure sending unit either... oil pressure gauges are way over rated for the effort required to change that thing... its also the smallest $50 box ive ever bought.

Cowl Intake

I had been seeing multipul post on another forum where people were making Cowl Air Intakes on their Jeeps. Now this is not for me but I decided to look under my cowl. I took my cowl apart to look and see what is there. I have owned my Jeep 3 years now and have not explored it 100% yet.

Installed a new head unit, wired in a new sub in my center console, and bed lined my rear fender flares. Btw super hard to get off.. More trouble than I thought getting those bolts off. You have to pry off the wheel well cover

Over the weekend changed the o2 sensors. With all the parts I have changed I have solved 85 to 90% of the issues I have been having. Every 25 or do miles it throws #6 misfire and only #6.

I posted a thread but got no replies so I guess I'm going to attempt to make it fit in this thread. I am hoping to get rear corner guards for my 01 sahara to sort of patch over a dent that someone left me in a parking lot a few weeks back. On the website, warrior products says that you cannot install their corner guards on a sahara due to the sahara trim. Does anyone know why this is? I'm assuming it has something to do with drilling issues...not sure though

Yeah they're metal. I wasn't quite impressed by the fact that the plastic ones are held on by some high tech 3M double sided tape. I don't get the point of even buying them

After rattling itself loose, I replaced the hardware that locates the two skidplates.
