Cleaned up some surface rust on the drivers side frame rail. Going to do the passengers side tomorrow. Looks like I'll be performing a frame swap next spring....
Idk how a tj could ever survive up here in the NE.

Coated (internally) my new 'safe-t-cap' rails. I used this Eastwood stuff last year, before replacing the metal. Unfortunately, it didn't save the steel that was already corroded.....honestly, it was wishful thinking. Applied to fresh, clean steel is better than nothing. I plan on a second coat of 2 more cans. AFTER it cures, I'm coating the entire (inside & out) frame with FLUID FILM.
No slacking this year. NE salt and snow are murderous to our Jeeps.

It's not fun. I broke all four of mine about a month ago. buy plenty of cut off wheels. When you're done, just use some 1/4 20's with flat washers and lock nut. I had to "customize" a wrench so I could get a hold of the locknuts.

Speedo Gear swap
My new to me TJ was going faster than indicated according to my GPS. I read up on WF about cause and fix right here on WF. I ordered a new correct 31 tooth gear and fresh O-ring from Quadratec for $38 and had it the next day ground.
Found the ratio while searching for reasons for incorrect speedometer readings. Figure it had to do with 33" tires PO put on. Took about 12 minutes as I had to get up off the ground twice to get a pick tool to pull the oring off and a can of brake clean to clean up the little bit of fluid that came out when I pulled the stock gear out of the TC. Now the MPH is spot on. My fuel mileage will be accurate now and service interval will be correct. Don't hesitate to do this simple mod. 1/4 drive ratchet, 1/2" socket, brake clean, new o-ring, rubber gloves, pick tool to get o-ring off.

I rotated tires.
Took the rear shaft off the tail of the transfer case to check the torque on the yoke nut and while manipulating the front DC joint noticed that it has a bit of a notchy spot in it. Since its a relatively new shaft I'm going to call the shop I bought it from and see if they'll replace it. Since I think that's what's causing my 65mph vibration.
