|IIONLY||Adjusted my brake shoe star wheels, adjusted the hand brake cable, cleaned the rotors and drums (hoping it would help stop my squeal, it didn't), rotated my tires and sprayed underneath with some asphalt undercoating. Was going to change my spark plugs but my plug socket and gap tool have disappeared. So guess that may happen next week. Also gave "the tank" a nice wash. It was a good day.|

|Momamac||I did 3/8" holes. Figured 1/4" may be too easy to get plugged up.|

drill the hole on the top at the grill... (circled in pic)
I was changing front stock flares to Sahara flares at the time, but the fender didn't have enough metal bent down around the radius in front for the flare to reach (area circled in pic)
And the fender seems to have a slight arch to it, the hood hits the middle of it...
I can get a pic of this tomorrow if you want.

|Momamac||Drilled drain holes in the frame, wire brushed the minimal rust on the outside and rustoleumed it. Next step, vacuum out the frame...have 4 cans of Eastwood Internal Frame Coat at the ready! Frame still solid and thick, want to keep it that way!|

Seems to me that nothing under there needs to breath. Perhaps sealing off every seam, gap and crevice with RTV and then priming and painting or bedlining might take care of that. You would have to mask off a lot, though.
I had my fenders off recently and it looked pretty do-able to me. If it worked the payoff would be no more rotted fenders...

|PantherWingsfan||A little before and after of the fender paint job.|

I wonder what I can do about the rust-prone area under the fender? There's like a flat plate welded under it I guess for support and I can see how salt/water/mud gets stuck up inside causing the rust.

|BuzzinHornets||Today I replaced the cooling system. Radiator, water pump, thermostat, thermostat housing, temp sensor, hoses, belt and idler pully. Fingers crossed I have no leaks and I don't have to mess with it again for quite some time!|

The D30 U-joints kicked my ass. They were so badly stuck and rusted that the ears of the shafts ended up getting bent. The bends are so minor that I cannot see them, but the caps will NOT line up right on two of them (right inner, left outer). I have now destroyed two Spicer 5-760X U-joints trying to get them in on one side each time. Three caps seat perfectly on each side, but one bore has been bent on each axle shaft combo and the caps keep shattering. (No, no bearings fell over. The shaft ears are actually bent according to my micrometer and calipers, but I cannot *see* the bend.)
So I just bought a set of alloys off Amazon. I hope they are good. I am deficient in my knowledge of axle shafts. I know I want to beef up my D 30, but the cost had me putting that off, but the OEM Jeep parts are even more expensive! I'll be damned if I drop that sort of coin on parts with a known failure rate like the stock shafts have! So I got this kit:
It comes with China-made U-joints that I do not trust. I trust the shafts based on what I have read here, but not those U-joints. So I added in a pair of Spicer 5-760X joints. And I fully expect to have them press in PERFECTLY for that price!
Anyone here have this kit or at least the Alloy USA 27 spline shafts? Please tell me I didn't just buy a big box of crap...

|ZLSeth||Ok... It wasn't today.... A week ago, I installed my Trek Top NX, so now I can sell all of my other tops: Bestop bikini with header, factory soft top in decent condition and hard top (currently missing rear window due to trail damage).|

I let my TJ make a friend today.
And I fixed my plate/tire carrier interference issue. Pulled the plate holder off and drilled 4 holes in my plate. Added a little double sided tape to the back and stuck/bolted it on..

I installed my new Smittybilt (I know I know but the price was damn good) Rocker Guard with step. After looking at them sitting next to my faded gray fender flares I just had to rattle can bedliner them and am extremely happy with the out come.
New Rocker Guards old gray flares
New Rocker Guards with newly repainted Flares
I also installed a new stereo deck, Pioneer MVH-X360BT, along with new Kicker dash and sound bar speakers. Hands down the best mod ive done for under $180.00. Love the sounds, I can actually hear them now and my android phone will connect thru Bluetooth/USB/front jack. No CD player on the new deck but don't need one since my phone carries all the tunes I can handle.
Sorry about the pics. Not sure whats gone wrong with photobucket but cant get it to show anything but small or grainy pics.
P.S. Love the Poison Spyder hood! Looks great and you do nice work
|08-30-2014 08:36 PM|
I installed my Poison Spyder Hood Louver. The first of many more mods.
