I think I finally solved my overheating issues!!! Small win in the list... But hey I will take it. Next on the fix list is the tub problem.. Still undecided on how I should fix damage. I still want to go wheeling and next week is the last week of school for 2013 so I may go celebrate it with some mud and trails!

New update going to JW jeep up in Sacramento and buying a half tub and still trying to find a good welder to weld it in. Add some armor and buy monstaliner paint the whole jeep. Sand off the old bedline on my floor and apply black monstaliner.

Just curious, but how much you pick up the new tub for? And is it the complete tub? Last summer I did a tub swap also, I painted my jeep in all rustoleum bedliner. I think it works great and the dirt never leaves a stain. It gets very very dirty but that more because I don't have fender flares. And the mud just washes right off. Just my 2 cents

That's about the same as I picked mine up for. Which is a pretty good price seems how most people on CL wanted closer to a grand and them ones had some rust on em. And thanks! It took a lot of work but it was the cheapest paintjob I could do and I love the results. If you have any questions about replacing the tub feel free to ask, might be able to help seems how I've done it before (:

Just make sure you label everything you unplug or take of. Every wire connector to every bolt and it Should go smooth

Got rear axle pulled preparing for re gear going to pull the front tomorrow weds hopefully not Friday but possible.... On a down note i found the PO kept the stock track bar with a 4 inch lift... Wedged itself in the mounts pretty good so that sucked.

Got very little done on the TJ today... Got some of the front axle stuff off the axle but got forced inside by darkness and rain the only things still attached is steering stabilizer, track bar, lower/upper control arms, coil springs, and driveshaft.

Got the Yukon 4.88 in both axles with the OX air in the back.... Now I really wish my jeep was able to wheel today... On another down note I am running a 101 fever so my build has come to a screeching halt and my neighbors are complaining to parents about a jeep on jack stands in our drive way.
Here is some gear porn

Also on a plus note I won a bet with my buddy and he bought me a PSC hood louver for him being a loser!!!!!

No major updates all the help I had to lift the tub off bailed on me :thumbsdown: so I started to remove the cage and I stripped one torx bit... Any tips on how to get it out? also there is some special torx bit with a hole in the center for 2 of the bits where the cage connects to the side of the tube.. any ideas?

For the stripped torx go get an ez out set, or if you have a welder then just weld a bolt onto it and ratchet it out.
The torx with the little hole in the middle is a security bit torx. You can get them at any auto store. They look like this http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002S...&robot_redir=1

Before leaving a week to build a house for a family in mexico I rallyed the homies and got everything off and the new tub on!!!!! :usa:
Love the no cage no rear fenders no nada look but sadly will need a cage to live, fenders to avoid tickets, and interior to drive it.... Had time to spray the frame with underbody coating so it looks niceish again :high5:

Past two weeks been pretty jeep unproductive busy with work and it was my senior ball so the I guess now ex gf was going crazy and had to help her out. Got the heater box back in and painted every single interior part except the door panels but when i finish the jeep the doors will be in my room so doesn't matter at this moment. My motivation to finish this Jeep is now greater than ever :biggrin:
