New front calipers. So you have to take it for a test drive and about a 100 miles with no roof or doors is great therapy.

Today I changed the oil it was simple as it always is. Then I spent a few hours trying to fix the blower motor after running some wire to the battery to check it directly I found the motor was good. long story short after searching for ever I found a wire had come disconnected when I installed a stereo. I also ordered new rubber for the hard top to windshield, should be here in a few days. I'm still looking for rims I like and can actually afford and also a lift kit. Never realized how much people put into their jeeps. LOL Its too late now I cant stop.

x2 that is awesome.

As for what I did. Lets see. Painted my hood, installed windshield into new frame, installed wiper assymbly in siad frame. Painted grill and doors, started the body work on my tailgate, and got angry that I still can't put her back together cause I still have more work to do. For a sort of step by step, check out my post "Start to Finish"

Got my throttle body from a 4.0 and put it on my 2.5 along with the intake spacer. Seemed like it helped her out doesn't lug as bad going over a dune in 3rd as she did. Removed all the seats, ripped out the carpet and got half way through sanding the tub to bedline it. Broke a bolt off taking out the rear seat support so have a new job for tomorrow! Then fixed the rats nest of wiring that the PO did while he was high! LOL I don't know if he was but that's the only reason I could think of why he did half the stuff he did.

Put fenders back on after finishing hooking everything up to the new 350 I did the swap this past weekend. Just waiting on the new radiator to get here so I can hear that baby breathe. Check out my post for pics of the swap.

So not really what I did to my YJ but how I thought about my YJ today lol. Did some chicken scratch on how a home made tire carier with gas can mount would look as well as LEDs, and small additive to family cage.

Then after that one I had brought up my mystery question what is my set up going to be when I make a smoke stack and a snorkel on the jeep? Well drew a couple ideas there all very tempting...

I have some Uniroyal All Terrains 31x10.50x15 with about 60% tread that I'll sell for $275.00, but you would have to live close (or in) Oklahoma......
