I quit that job a long time ago. I have had a few jobs since but nothing steady.

It's really nice not having to pay bills.

Fo sho. Hopefully I have the time to do the SYE and get the front axle in tomorrow. Never done a SYE before so we'll see how it goes. It doesn't seem like it will be too difficult.

It's not hard to do a SYE I just did one. The hardest part is having a big enough snap ring pliers and a "C" clip wrench. I dont know if that is the correct name or not. There or two rings without holes in them to get out and I used this tool to take them off. It looks like a bent needle nose pliers with a spring on it. So it works like a snap ring pliers without the holes. Other than easy to do.

Front axle out. I can't get the t-case skid off because of a stripped bolt. Not sure what to do to get it out because it is really in there.

I would grind the head off the bolt and use an easy out on the shank

you could just weld a small piece of steel onto the bolt and then put a bar on it and turn it out. hahaha. but I would try another way first.

Welded a wrench onto it and used a 6ft cheater bar. Broke the wrench/welds.

Well damn. Weld more! Hahaha. May have to drill it out. I think one of my friends on here had a similar problem but in his transmission. Jkaufman. You could ask him about what he did.

You could try welding an impact socket on and use the gun to knock it loose. That may work better than just a big cheater.

I tried welding a wrench onto it again but welded it fully, instead of a few tacks. Ended up snapping the wrench and it went flying across the garage. I'm going to try to drill it out later.


Front driveshaft Ujoint cap. Can I replace just this or do I need a new Ujoint?


Front axle almost in. A few more spots need to be hooked up.


Also, the end on my draglink(where it meets the knuckle) spins when I try to tighten the nut. What do I do for that?

The bolt on the skid is not stripped. The nutsert on the inside of the frame rust and the end of the nutsert has broken off from the rest of the nutsert. You may have to cut the heads off the bolts and then grind down the outter flats of the nutserts. Then you can knock the nutserts into the frame.

You may also try a tire tool in between the skid and frame, then use a impact.
You can get new nutserts at the dealer, but they aren't cheap.

Not the nutsert that's stripped...

I drilled out a little but couldn't get the last, biggest one to drill at all so I started beating it with a BFH and it turned a little. I need to shave the lip down a little so it does not interfere with the broken part of the wrench. I will do that tomorrow as I am respectful of my neighbors, and don't want to disturb them at night with my loud tools. I'm pretty pissed that this one bolt is messing with my schedule so much.

Now I see the bolt head has rounded out.
Have you sprayed it with some PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench? Hopefully you can get it out without busting the nutsert.

GOT IT!!!

Drilled it through a few times. Once the bits started to get bigger it was nearly impossible to keep drilling. So I ground off the lip on the skid plate, got the broken wrench off, welded a fresh wrench on, turned it a little bit and this is the result.



Wrench No.1


Wrench No.2 + bolt head. Broke the bolt and not the wrench this time.

Worked on the SYE all day and would have kept going, but I was supplied with only 1 speedo gear snap ring. It needs 2. I am going to call ECGS on monday to see if I can get it through them. If they cannot provide that I will call Advance Adapters. Other than that the install has been fairly easy.

Nice work! Chase at ECGS hooked me up on a bunch of parts for my HP D30 build, give him a call and I'm sure he'll get you what ever you need to finish installing your gear.

Yep I'm going to give him a call a little bit later. ECGS is a great company and I am glad that I did business with them. The quality of their work is outstanding and the price was not too bad, considering what I purchased.

I quit that job a while ago. They cut all of my hours(why I was only making $25 a week) and treated me like shit. I'm currently unemployed, which is good for my jeeps sake, but sucks not having an income. It also sucks finding a job in this economy. How I've been buying my jeep parts with no job? One of my past employers had me do lots and lots of work, and didn't have the money to pay me. I stopped working for her over 3 months ago and she still owes me a little bit. Hopefully I can get that soon so I can get a BL.

I've always found that reading a build thread would inspire me to go work on my jeep. That also applies to mine lol. Another reason I made this thread is because I don't know everything(like some people on here), and it is a good place to ask questions. With that said thanks for the help everybody and I hope I can return it in some way or another.

EDIT: I also got a GOPRO hero2 camera for christmas so once I get the Heep back together, I'll make some videos of me tearing it up.
