I did that for awhile then I removed the axle back. Then I replaced the mid resonator with a flowmaster 40.

Eastwood sells a nice starter kit that works very well. For the oven, you can look on CL for cheap or free one. You can also buy one of those over the counter ovens for the smaller parts. The hardest part is making sure the parts are cleaned/degreased. Get the kit and oven and practice with pieces of metal.

BTW, I don't lock my Jeep with the soft top on. Learned that lesson long ago when someone cut into the convertible top to steal my cassette tapes.

Installed door hinge locks.

Crawled around under it just to familiarize myself with it.

Powder coating is easy and lots of fun. It's a lot easier and cheaper than you think to DIY.

edit: if you don't have access to a blaster, just scratch up the fuel door bolts up pretty good and clean them...then rattle can them.

spudley After my old man emu steering stabiliser install yesterday (steering wheel was off center), found that it triggered the anti-skid system code and stopped it from working.

Found a handy youtube video about adjusting the drag-link so got out in the snow and mud to adjust that and had to disconnect battery to clear the code. Steering wheel is back to center, the code is clear and everything functions great.

I have a bit of a write-up on this on my blog at vagabondexpedition.com

You can tell whoever traded it in just had it for looks and didn't go off road because he could have used it in his new rig, or sold it on Craigslist.

That's an awesome find. Have fun.

To get your steering wheel centered is a breeze. The hardest part is not having a helper to let you know when it's centered.
