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.

Changed front diff fluid from sludge to RP max gear (rear was next but it got cold and dark). Well, I changed almost all of it. One bolt was totally stripped so i had to pump out what i could.
Rear fluid swap is tomorrow..

So my left rear axle seal is leaking. Anyone use this kit? http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0078U...I2TMI3VDGGU4NL
When I added it to my Amazon wish list a couple weeks ago, it was $237.79. Now it's $145.94 (38% drop in price). No reviews listed. Just wondering if anyone else made this purchase and had any input before I purchase. I'm not an axle guy so I don't want to order the wrong stuff and not realize it till I take it to the shop. Btw, it's an 03 Rubi.

Today I unbolted the seats and center console, cleaned everything, and sprayed dupi-color bed armor on the whole thing (about 4 cans, $12 each). Looks great.
Yesterday I fabbed my winch plate and welded it to my bumper and installed my new 1200 lb winch, I have the same bumper as the guy with those kc lights and winch from CL (awesome sounding deal btw).
Over the weekend, I painted my jeep from forest green to army green. Refreshing change.
Also my friend gave me this sweet grenade shifter knob, it's real. I love it.

Been putting this off for too long now.

I went a few months with out a top on at all and put the soft top (no hard top here, sold it for parts money back when building axles) back on last month. Boooooo....NJ life.

Got everything disconnected in the back. Rear uppers, sway links, track bar and shocks.
Broke a couple upper shock bolts, not sure what to do now 😞
Any advise would be welcome.

|Rock Kicker||Ordered Flowmaster Super 44 muffler. Love my Fm Super 40 on my XJ, figured I'd like this too. New injectors should be here today. Debating on K&N setup to compliment the exhaust but not sure. Sounds good on my XJ, but not really feeling any difference, especially for the cost. Any suggestions on similar, less expensive setups?|
