Talking Backup

Today I simply watched my daughter get more comfortable with her Tj as she backed up the driveway (5 speed) Proud dad.

Awesome! Thanks for help! I might just have to put one of these things on then since it sounds like a really easy project!

Made a gruesome discovery.
Looked under the jeep to see a leak. From where the right control arm meets the frame? WTH!!!
Fluid is bright yellow/green. Grab a flashlight to inspect, following the trail. Right up to the evap drain.

Sunny Beach, hop in the jeep and fire it up, crank up the a/c and get nothing but hot air.

Just finished ordering a new evaporator/dryer/orifice/oil/freon. And not looking forward to doing this repair.

I'll let you know when it rains!
Want hurt anything. I had an old Chevy truck that was a show truck and the entire hood was louvered and it never did anything to it, except spot all the chrome up that was on the engine.

I also installed new autolite plugs. Really simple job. Also removed the Sport and 4.0 decals.

Replaced the Factory Cig Lighter with a 12v receptacle because the previous owner cut the wires to use for the radio. I Didn't want it to run through the ignition anyway. Ran it hot with a 10 amp spade fuse. Should have been easy but nothing is ever easy on a Jeep especially when it's 95 degrees in the shade (more like 105 in the garage). Oh well, at least now I can charge the cell phone (thats a good thing I think? )

Replaced my bent stock tie rod with a ZJ tie rod. In doing so, discovered that the ball joints are just about shot...awesome.

Bored during this damn hurricane so I went out to the garage and tinkered with her checked my plugs to see how she's running on this new engine they looked like brand new. Checked all the fluids and cleaned the buildup off the throttle body next week I think i'll take it off and give it a thorough cleaning. Maybe it will help with my slightly high idle

Painted my headlight bezels in Rustoleum bedliner. They look great! Also removed my rear center tail-light and cleaned up the spare. Bought spark plugs to change tomorrow, and if time permits, I'll be painting my flares in bedliner as well.

Went riding around after the hurricane and could only find one road flooded. State had it barricaded so tight couldn't even get close enough to see the water

Installed a Spiderweb Shade, put in a new set of spark plugs because the idle was getting rough and had a new thermostat installed because by the top of a second hill it would run insanely hot! All fixed and running like a champ now!!!

M Found that the issue was not the loose bolts in the front diif. but that one of the gear fins in the rear diff. sheared off and was laying in the bottom of the diff. housing.

Traded it in! For another Jeep though, none the less. Even swap, and now there is a lot less on my to do list! The before is on the right, the after is on the left!
