Plugged the switch in and pressed the button for one second to test before I bought the rig. But that's all it runs for - one second. Then nothing. Switch is good, Solenoid is good. Fooling around with it for half an hour, I got it to spool in about five feet of cable under no load.
Also, when I spooled out enough wire, I could see that there's a kinked/frayed spot halfway down the cable.
BTW: If you want one, the coupon in the HF flyer is $50 less than their "labor day sale" price. Good to the end of the month.

I decided to see whether this Harbor Freight winch that I've been driving around with all summer actually works.

Finally added TJ flares to go with the 33s. I had to test them out so I did Cleghorn Trail in the morning.
Awesome day on the trail!!

Just ordered my Dana 60's front and rear with 35 spline axles and Detroit Lockers, very excited, 4 weeks out but patiently waiting.

Annndddd... $20, and a bend in the bench vise later...

Bed-lined my hard top.
Now I need to re-do the side windows. The glass is good but not attached too well on one side and out on the other. Anyone got any tips on doing this?

|shelby987||Completely unglamorous....but I finally traced my turn signal issue to my turn signal switch, and my YJ can finally pass inspection and be street legal again!|

Had some LED light left over so decided to use them for reverse lights. Took the bulbs out and twisted them apart.
Then soldered the LED wires to the base of the light bulb and put it back together.
These things are bright!!!!

Finally got the doors off. Goo gone on the nasty weather strip, and the next generation Jeepers learned all about white lithium grease.

I was looking to do that to mine... Let me know if they're any good and where to get them. They look pretty cool.

Finished making my own sound bar...

I took off track and sway bars... Much better. I fabricated a winch bumper out of my stock bumper and installed the winch and lights.

Did the Family Rollbar swap!

Haha I think I'm the lucky only one. They will need an XJ but I think he's got that lined up.

Changed trans fluid to royal purple 75w 90. Shifts easier and runs quieter.
Also had a noise that sounded like a plastic bag blowing under the body. A plastic piece on the air cleaner box had come loose. Pop rivet it back on and all is quiet again.

So today my jeep got Sponsored by an LED company. Black Mamba Off-road is using my YJ as a test fit for some new custom LED headlights. Super psyched to show u guys a teaser photo. If all goes well by early next week these will be functional and will soon be available. Once they're done and lit up I'll post a thread showing them off but right now here's a teaser pic
What do you guys think?

|TigWizard||Let my 15 year old son drive it around the neighborhood (not ready for traffic yet). He did surprisingly well. He only stalled it once, wasn't too heavy on the clutch. I'd rather have him stall it than ride the clutch. He just needs more practice, and I think it won't be long until I'm driving the van again! Or looking for another jeep for me! It might just be in my head, but I think there are noises the rig makes that can only be heard from the passenger seat!|
