Unhappy 1 Problem fixed, 1 unresolved, 1 created

Today I replaced the oil pressure switch in an attempt to fix oil i found pooling in the area and to fix my oil pressure gauge which did not go past 20. It fixed the gauge but I do believe the oil leak to still be present somewhere.

I then tried to replace the bulb to my left turn signal blinker on dash. I opened the dash up and noticed one of the two cable connections was not connected on left side of steering wheel. When I reconnected it both turn signals worked. I closed it all up and low and behold neither dash blinker worked. Blinkers on back of Jeep still work just not on dash. Checked for blown fuse, no luck. So now I have no dash blinkers. Oh well such is life.

Today I cut out the rotted frame sections right above the crossmember on my 92 islander, and I fit the replacement pieces. Still have to do the rear main seal before I put the trans back in.

My son and I did the front brakes on our 88. I did the passenger side and figured out the clips etc... showed him how they went. Then I had him do the drivers side on his own. So at 13 he's done a full brake setup for the front. We put on new rotors, calipers and pads and he did a GREAT job. Just asked all the right questions, cleaned up as he was going along, put the pan under the whole wheel setup when it was time to bleed them. he's gonna be all set when I give this to him when he's 16.

i run the same one and have used it multiple times. as others have said, harbor freight is hit or miss. miss mostly with power tools and things along those lines. but ive seen most other things are the same that are sold under other "brand" names. be a smart shopper and hf can save you lots of money

We've had up to 10 cars at one time but only 1 was a jeep (because that's MY addiction) but that's what happens when you're married to a car guy. Tell her there are worse things =)

Well, today I put my console and rear seat back in. Had to remove both last weekend to pick up a work bench. Then I installed my "new" rear bumper. It's much better than what I had!

Just changed the last fluids in my newtome 06 Unlimited. Oil, coolant, diffs, xfer case, and finally trans (manual). Unbelievable amount of shavings on trans drain plug. Fluid was like black water. All good now though. Did plugs and air filter too. Anything I missed?

Also tried replacing my Driver's windshield hinge. I have officially joined those who hate torx bolts now but actually only had a prob loosening one. Then got stumped with how the lower ones come off. Checked some threads on the subject and found out that's a bigger job so we'll hold that for another day. =)

New Drums...


New Power Booster...


Still have to bench bleed the master cylinder, get it installed and then bleed the whole system. Hope to be back on the road by the middle of this week.

Here is what I did Friday

Got me 4 boxs from UPS Friday, 2 new Bestop Trailmax II seats and 2 Rugged Ridge seat sliders. No more splitting seams and no more duck tape!
That and I can now adjust both of my seats.

I found the seats to be well made and easy to put together and the sliders were more of the same. Took around an hour to remove both old seat/slider combos, put the seats together and install the sliders, and install everything in the Jeep.

I did find that these seats make you sit much higher and a little more upright than the OEM seats which causes you to hit the steering wheel as you get in and out. Not a big deal, just something you have to do now is all.

I did have one minor issue with the drivers seat, I had to add a washer to each of the 4 bolts that mount everything to the seat base as the adjustment mechanisim was sitting on the frame making it very hard to move the seat forward or backward. That and the slider instructions tell you to re-use the 4 nuts that mount it to the base but I could not. My base has SAE bolts/nuts and the RR uses metric nuts/bolts.

I took some pics but of course I left them at home. I will add some later.

about to do some seat shopping myself. Driver seat back is getting pretty week and bending on steep hills. Glad you posted this, you never know what you are getting till you get them.
