Had the exact same problem. That bolt nut is a motor scooter for sure. So hard to get to, 2 extensions on my ratchet, then the socket. Cut my bracket with a bremel and then the bolt with the dremel. SUCKED!!! All good now though.

Ryan Angela Drove it on the trails for the first time since locking the front end and limited slip in the rear. First time driving anything with a locker. WOW! Between that and the regear, she really woke up.

Google maps sucks

Went to find a trail I haven't wheeled on yet off of a public road and it turns out that there are separate 2 public roads with the same exact name within 15 miles of each other... google took me to the wrong one and my adventure was ruined before it started. thanks Google

Its hard to even telk the difference in pic comparison and real world comparison

Tranny Fluid and Truck Lites..

It's been a while... I do things all the time but I do not post....I just stalk ... lol

Either way did the tranny fluid and Truck Lites!

Starting with the tranny fluid - 05 Auto LJ - Here is my opinion - Just buy a piece of plastic, either a storage tub or something of that nature that is much larger than the pan.. then just unscrew it, drop it and don't worry about the mess... I tried to go slow, unscrew let it drain, little by little... used a big round drain pain... etc etc etc.. WASTE of f'ing time.. let me tell you... just go big drop it put a new filter on and fill! LOL I used Napa ATF+4..same as Valvoline.. they have a special, buy a 5 gallon Camo bucket for 2.99 and you get anything in the bucket for 20% off... so about $4.80 a quart... can't go wrong! Shifts much smoother now... the old fluid looked very brown and nasty...

Next - .... I have an older round oil drain pan... It has a top you fill up and a neck with a cap so you can pour it into another vessel...well I have had a cover on the neck for years and it always drips...low and behold - Mobil Synthetic Oil 1 quart - The screw on top fit perfectly, snug as a bug in a rug!

Next - Funnel - I get nutty, I own too many funnels.. I was worried about having a contaminated funnel getting crap into my tranny.. I found one at True Value ( always the best sh!t) for $4.99 made in China unfortunately... but .. it's the greatest funnel ever.. 5 in 1.. It has a removable mesh screen, a cap for the bottom of the funnel, it is shaped like a rectangle to fit a quart of oil, has a screw on adapter that expands and allows you to fit it in odd spaces and the screw on adapter fits 1 quart and 5 quart oil cans so you pour straight from them!!! This was a find!!

And OMFG the Truck Lites.. AMAZING! So nice and clear.. Got my wife a cherry '04 Saab convertible with Hid's, I have always been jealous, now she is! Plug and Play, they look great and the field of vision is expanded greatly both forward and laterally!

Waterloo is the brand, I will have to look at the paper in it to see if it has a model number on it. I bought it at the PX on base at Fort Lee VA
