Fenders back to black
Just bought my tj, first thing i did was torch the fenders back to their original black colour. It was my first time doing it and i wasn't super consistent with using the blow torch so it did come a little patchy, but i then applied a cream that shines black plastic (good for all interior and exterior black detailing). I must say they now look great. Simple but makes my jeep looks much newer

Since I stayed up until 2AM last night doing this, you get the pics today.
The other day I found this....
Looked up underneath it to find this.....
So yesterday I grabbed my 2 youngest
and went to town and purchased a 33mm socket, some more PB Blaster, a pitman arm puller and this.......
After a little colorful language getting the lines off, it was time for that pitman arm. I broke this puller.
The second one.....
Out with the old, and in with the new!!!
Took it for a short test drive late last night and everything seemed fine. Drove it 40 miles to work and 40 miles back home. Seems softer with a little more play in it to the left. Hmmmmm...........No leaks yet though!!!!!!

Also, you would be smart to have one if you have a BL, but I do not. I have a 3.5" suspension lift on 33s...

I do not want to replace the mounts with the stock ones. These are pretty much the best you can get, based on my research.
The Super Brackets replace the engine block mount brackets. One of mine has a sheared bolt head. That means my 4.0L is only being held in place by two bolts on one side.
The Brown Dog brackets use several unused bosses on the block that are threaded but have nothing in them. One side uses seven bolts and one uses six. (Can't remember which is which.)
One of our local shops has a mechanic who moved here from somewhere up in Michigan. He says they used the brackets to save blocks that had bolts sheared off and that could not be removed. These are FAR stronger and FAR better attached than the stock ones.
I am of the mind that you should only fix a problem once if possible. These stout brackets and mounts will mean that I will never have to mess with this issue again. Unless I install them wrong, that is. HAHAHA!!!
Here is the kit I just got in the mail today...
SU2883-0HW, TJ & LJ Header Super Kit w/ Super Engine Brackets and Ultra-Flex Rubber Motor Mounts
Keep in mind that with lots of Kroil and some patience I *might* get that stub out of my block, but if not I can just Dremel it off and forget about it. The new brackets have twice as many anchor points.

I loosened all my control arm bolts, then started torquing them back down. 130ft. lbs sucks, especially after it starts to rain on your back as you attempt to tighten them. I hope to finish tightening when I get home from work. If you're wondering "why is he giving himself things to do?" Troubleshooting a clunk. When in doubt make sure everything is tightened properly.

|Blazor||Washed the Jeep, cleaned the inside out, changed the oil and filter, and filled it up w/ gas and window cleaner fluid. Jeep is happy, BUT it did say to me "I know I'm clean now and all, but cant we take the kids over the mountain next weekend" lol.|

|Mamefreak||Drove 2 hours to and from the Renn Faire. Got to test out the new thermostat and water pump I installed. Did a consistent 75-85 mph the whole time and it never broke 203, most of the time it was at 199 or so. Also decided to see how fast it would go but my girlfriend yelled at me lol|

^ sounds like a great day!
My son and I hopped in mine yesterday to take him back to his mom. I didn't realize how chilly of a ride it was going to be with the doors off!
