To be legal like that you must have approved eye wear on, and that will keep your eyes from watering.

Yea I was thinking that. I put on wide lens glasses and that worked alright for me.

grill hood and bumber plasti dip

I didnt really like the way the hood came out. cutting with the x-acto knife is extremely hard in a straight line.

replaced the blower motor resister, replaced the fan switch, replaced the cd player housing mount thingy, and am about to go wash it so i can FINALLY take some updated pics!

oh, and since i didnt update last weekend...

did an oil change, oil filter change, spark plug change, installed lower fixed control arms front and rear, installed upper adjustable control arms front and rear, 4" front lift springs to level it out after my recent axle swap, extended front brake lines, adjustable track bars front and rear, slip yoke eliminator, and a custom adams drive shaft.

This week (hopefully wednesday or so) i'm going to be installing a new OR-Fab rear tire carrier and front stinger. Then i think i'm gonna chill for at least a month before looking at my tummy tuck skid and gas tank skid lol.

Continuing my quest to kick this 2003 Sport (which was beat to Hell when I bought it in June) back into a safe and reliable DD while correcting driveline issues with the idiot-like lift it came with.


So far, to include today, I have done the following to this old TJ

2003 TJ Sport

Flipped rearview (done while at dealership, prompting hilarious look from salesman)
Installed 5 new BFGs @ 33x12.5 - tire place
Front end alignment - tire place

Installed 4 O2 sensors (Bosch, so need to replace with NTKs ASAP) - dealership
6 plugs, gapped properly (OP's were RUINED - cannot believe it drove) - dealership

Replaced silly AIRAID CAI with OEM box, filter and hose (FREE on craigslist!)
Reconnected several vacuum hoses that had popped off
Repaired several small wiring problems
Removed craptacular disco floor lights (WTF? Seriously?)
Replaced HVAC blower motor resistor pack
Removed idiot stickers from all over the damned vehicle
Replaced missing floor lamp beneath glove box
Replaced multifunction switch unit
Purchased all rubber OEM Wrangler front floor mats
Replaced all nine rubber floor and bed grommets
Replaced six burnt out bulbs
Fully rewired junkyard 3rd brake light
Replaced craptacular front bumper with old AtoZ one
Liberated, rewired and installed fogs from old TJ
Replaced craptacular rear bumper (ruined tire carrier) with old AtoZ bumper (no carrier)
Liberated old TJ's spare tire carrier and 3rd brake light and installed
Replaced rubber shift boot and plastic retainer clip
Burned disgusting, dog-smelling, stained carpeting with much gasoline and rejoicing
Liberated roll cage covers and padding from old TJ
Swapped gas caps with old TJ
Repaired jammed stereo faceplate (nice!)
Bedlined grille (wonderful!)
Painted headlight rings glossy black
Repaired transfer case actuating linkage (will go Novak at Christmas)
Did some minor repair to the frame with a BFH (a 16 lb sledge, baby...)
Cleaned out enough sand and dirt to build a house - The PO was a pig.
Tied down flapping rear seat belts with Velcro straps
Repaired damaged soft top zippers (still a problem with un-tracking on rear window)
Replaced thermostat with CORRECT one - Idiot PO!
Replaced water pump
Replaced iron pipe from pump to heater hose
Replaced fan clutch
Replaced serpentine belt
Back flushed entire system (radiator needs replacement - disgusting)
Replaced radiator cap (AutoZone, probably will replace with OEM when I get OEM radiator)
Cleaned up very gunky, sludgy overflow bottle (needs replacement as a lot is still in there)


Still needed at this time:

OEM radiator and cap
Five black steelies @ 15x8
Locking billet gas cap cover (black, of course)
Five DuraTracks @ 32x11.5x15
Sell 5 Mickey Thompson Classic Lock rims @ 15x10
Sell 5 two month old BFG TA/KO All-Terrains @ 33x12.5x15
Swap seats from my SE
Strip poorly done Herculiner, prime and re-line with same spray-on that I used on grille
Get new bumpers from AtoZ Fabrication (with rear tire carrier)
Get new rock rails from AtoZ Fabrication
Replace EVAP crap in rear fender well with new to stop damned air codes
Replace O2 sensors from dealership (Bosch) with new NTKs
Replace both good and blown steering stabilizers
SYE
CV shaft
Ditch stupid-looking TC drop
Get tummy tuck (like a boss, baby!)

Lower on my list, but will eventually get done:

Replace junk aftermarket shocks and springs with OME
Replace lower control arms (at least) with some nice, adjustable ones to get axels back where then need to be
Correct pinion angle (Stupid PO!!!)
Correct rear spring perch angles (Stupid PO!!!)
Install LSD in rear Dana 44?
Install Detroit locker in front if I get the LSD on rear?
Maybe put a Dana 44 on the front when I get the Detroit?
CJ-style flush-mounted rear lights
CJ-style front turn signals
Flat plastic front fenders (with markers, like in Jerry's write up)
Different rear fender flares
Steering gear skid box
Beefier steering components
New center console with sub
CB and antenna
Warn winch
D rings
Hi-Lift jack
Tools
Tools
Tools
Tools
Tools

I am getting there, but have much to do. It now runs really well (mostly). The O2 sensors should solve my CEL woes and the radiator should solve my cooling ones. My MPG currently is 18 @ 60 mph and 17 @ 70, which I feel is GREAT for a decade-old TJ. It currently runs smoothly, quietly, and very strongly.

I love working on this Sport. It is far more fun than working my my SE; the 2.4L engine is not fun to work on at all, ever. Not designed with home repairs in mind; pretty stupidly set up in a lot of ways.

Sweet! I've been wanting to do that to my hood! I wasn't sure about getting a clean cut around it though... Any thoughts on how to make it easier now that you've done it?

I think that if I had let it dried a little more and used a straight edge as a guide probably would came out better. I'm thinking about peeling off and putting in the black out hood decal. Ill take close up pictures and post them tommorow so you can see it.

Last week I installed a set of KC hinge light mounts for a set of PIAA lights I ended up getting pretty cheap. I had to go to the Home Depot and get some longer bolts, as the factory ones didn't have enough teeth to work on my Jeep.
Today I figured out how to route the wiring for windshield hinge mounted lights; I didn't know how to remove and reinstall the wiper cover piece. I fought the weather stripping at the front of it until I realized that I should install the cover with the weather stripping out of the way first.
I ran the switch and trigger wires from the engine bay inside through the blockoff plate that would hold a clutch, but mine has an auto so it worked out great. I tapped into the black/orange wire at the column for the trigger to the PIAA relay, and mounted the on/off switch above the left side vent on the base of the P/S roll cage.

What I did to my TJ today.

Removed Rocky Road Outfitters shocks that came with my 4" lift. Damn things were made for a log truck or something. The ride was severely harsh. Installed new Procomp ES3000s all around. Definitely tamed the ride quality! The OME springs are HD and that contributes a bit to the stiffness of the suspension, but with the new shocks, it rides so much better.

While removing the rear shocks, found a nut missing on my gas tank armor. Promptly replaced that. Can't lose my skid plates!

Ordered Advance Adapters SYE and a Tom Woods CV rear driveshaft. Can't wait to get it installed! The crappo transfer case drop kit is causing my shifter to hit the opening and makes it pop out of 2nd, 4th, 6th and most importantly, reverse. Grinding gears ain't good. The SYE will allow me to get rid of that damned drop kit and restore my shifter position.

Got a Hi-Lift Jack. The longer one. I kind of want to install it on the rear roll cage legs, but I have no idea what brackets would work for that. I have no problem mounting it on the hood hinges, just that I really would like to keep it inside, rust free. Western Washington state with all the rain/moisture, it really takes a toll on external mounted items like that jack. My KC Lites Brackets I have mounted on the windshield hinge plates are only 2 years old and already rusted all the way around. So, tomorrow ill be taking them off, doing some rust removal and repaint them.

Anyone have any advice for gear sets, ring and pinion? I have a stock Dana 35 with whatever gears it came with. I am running 33x12.50x15 MTs. It is a tad slow getting up to speed and I cannot drive on the interstate in 6th gear, bogs down. Any help would be awesome. Thanks in advance...

Finnaly found time to clean/buff/polish all the dirt and scratches out of my windows. They look 100x better now!

I just wish I could sell this damn spice super tip so I can buy a brand new black frameless softopper with tinted windows

Maybe I'll get lucky here in Daytona and find someone who needs a solid top.

General Maintenance

Pulled all the tires, checked the brakes. Greased the front end. Checked the oil et al, getting ready for hunting season.

Hi alanc110, I bought the "Rugged Ridge 11586.02 Hi-Lift Style Off-Road Jack Roll Bar Mounting Bracket" for my Hi-Lift Jack last year and it has worked out great and pretty affordable. Also live in Western WA and wanted mine inside.

Of course the Jeep supermarket (Quadratec) has some. Mount to the sport cage just above the tailgate, look really nice. The jack and those mounts are on my wish list.

As for what I did to mine today, just fed it and drove it over to my mom's to help her with some things. Top down, stopped to get some sweet corn at the stand. Nice day.

For the hi-lift jack u can mount it on the good, just do what I did.... Plastidip it or spray it with rustolium paint. Still functions ok and doesn't have a single sign of rust on it.

Piston Locked up, replace the caliper, it's $20 and takes 15 minutes.

Got a new bumper from Ares Fab the other day, now installed.



I will eventually tie it into the frame, he makes a kit for that, but this bumper required four additional holes to be drilled.

Cut pinch seams off a friends JK today. As a TJ guy I've never done it before....wow, that was simple, and a really poor design change from the TJ.

Drove my friends JK today too. I might have to buy one of these rigs....super smooth!!!
