thedawgshow Nothing yet, but........

today is a day off from the ol' salt mines, and I still have a lot of other chores like mow the grass, take the boys to Piano and Football, but I think I have just a few hours to work on the TJ. Hmmmmmmm.......... Maybe a trip to town to get a drill bit to drill 1/4" drain holes in the frame. I hope my little 3/8 drill will do the job.

Novak cable shifter... it replaces the stock transfer case shift linkage with a smooth gliding cable.

ptoncannon ive had a rough couple of days with the jeep... I've found a few spots of rust after i had my jeep flooded with about 2 inches of water after i left my windows open all night as it rained, and isn't predicted to stop for about 3 days, so now i have to deal with the smell of mildew and nasty carpet and a wet ass along with it.. as soon as it stops raining I'm taking the seats out, drying everything out, checking for rust, using that eastwood rust encapsulator and rust transformer to ensure everything is solid and replacing drain hole caps. but then today, what i thought was steam just coming off the hood actually turned out to be my engine/radiator. my radiator has a leak somewhere in it and I'm just going to go ahead and replace it afterr 150,000 miles. I'm a little pissed because this is my DD... oh well! gives me an excuse to work on the jeep! (: haha

any recommendations on radiator types and where to buy them? I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to radiators!

Mamefreak Got my ARB sliders in, I'm not sure if I'll get them on this year though, weather is starting to change and I really want to coat my frame while it's still rust free.

So much Jeep work to do, so little time...

Raif281, I got it from Eastwoods website, there was a sale at the time. Amazon is good to check too. I think Eastwood is doing a 10% off deal if you give them your e-mail address.

Momamac Vacuumed the frame and sprayed in 4 cans of Eastwood Internal Frame Coat. Not much rust...as much sand as anything. Coated real well, glad I got it while frame is still solid!

97WranglerOhio I really don't blame ya. The black looks excellent.

NorthIdahome Nooo way. Attracts a lot of unwanted attention in the woods

97WranglerOhio That was $120 well spent although I do sort of like those green flames... You should bring 'em back!
