Today I went to the local hardware store to buy 4 new bolts to install my new high flow cat. Also took a trip to AutoBlown and got a new catalytic converter gasket.

Might start my install of my high flow cat and flowmaster super 44 today

Took my throttle body apart, replaced my ISA, cleaned up TPS, and took a jeep that wouldn't start readily, and not idle at all to one that starts right up and idles. (once warmed up its idling a little high, but its running, and thats good enough for me for now)

Dropped the tranny to install new clutch set. Internal hydraulic actuator sprung a leak. Someone should start a thread to document bizarre things done by PO. Not that my work is perfect, mind you. Just shooting for mechanically sound.

Put my light bar in yesterday. not today, but yesterday. SOO much better sound coming out of those 2 4" speakers than the 8 home entertainment speakers I had in it before

Need to replace the dash speakers with something more powerful and she'll be set to go for partying.

If somebody wants to start a new thread, I'll repost this. Here's what my PO (a jan-yoo-wine rocket scientist) did for for every new accessory - added another wire and inline fuse. The yellowtop was covered by a web of fuses and wires. A Painless fuse block and a few hours of my time made my YetiJeep more electrically sound.

Ok heres the low down, in May I traded some young kid my 95 V8 5SP MUSTANG for his 91 YJ, He got a SWEET deal! Meaning the mustang was Cherry! The YJ on other hand was a mess! Needed, complete exhaust! Seats put in right, doors to fit hard top! A spare tire, some gaskets, flares, a stereo, and was in need of some serious female touch! So after about 4,000$ a great mechanic.....me and John Diaz!! And my female touch my YJ is running deep, bumpin some tunes, no more leaks, and has now got seats for my 8yr old lil man, and Daisy, our Boxer. also gave it a better lift and bigger tires! Here are some pics...

Hey, man, I have the factory dash still in place, but I put some Clarion 4x6's and 6x9's in boxes in the back next to the bench seats and they sound cleaner than the sound bar.

Those 4x6's are loud and if you get a good deck, you can modify the EQ pretty good. Trust me.

I have a Clarion CZ300 pushing all four speakers. Mad nice.

What is the material on the roll bar?
I sure do like all the personalizing of jeeps. I sure could use more money for all the ideas I'd like to put on my yj.

Its a soft but thin flannel like material, from wamart 4.19 a yard, total of two yrds for roll bar and back seat, used some peel n stick hem 3.77 per roll used two rols to do hems and 12 ft of white peel and stick scotch brand velcro 4$ per 6ft, very easy! Bout 25$ for total job! The shade top was just a sheer piece at around 4$ a yrd, some velcro.

Finished installing new clutch and hydraulic slave cylinder. Had a defective part and had to pull the tranny a second time. Aligning it to the engine is a serious PITA. Took a celebratory victory ride this evening. Luckily everything works just fine now. Next project: replacing the cheesy patch panel in drivers floor installed by PO. Another hack job that needs correcting.

finally put my 31" superswampers on my jeep....goin to a truck show with it tomorrow so i'm gonna def have to clean it up tonight when it cools off....i think it came out nice, i had to trim the rear fender flares a little but the front is fine for normal driving, going to do a small shackle lift for now.



for the record yes those are lug adapters....they are 5x4.5 to 5x5.5 so i can swap tires between my jeep and bronco(was the cheapest route when i got the jeep so i could use my stock bronco wheels/tires for daily driving)

when I bought my jeep the guy before me had trailer lights on the back instead of the correct tail lights, so I took them off and put some I had laying around on it today... In the process realized that I don't have a reverse light on the passenger side so will have to trace wires another day :-(

Wired up my electrical fan and mounted it, wires are a mess, gotta straighten them up tonight. Ran 2 separate toggle switches to it. 1 is for a main on and off switch all though it will still turn on automatically whit the thermo, and the other is for a bypass, if the thermostat kicks it on I cam turn it off, or turn it on whenever I want.
