What I did to my jeep today
I finished hooking up my front sway bar quick disconnects, installed a aftermarket temp gauge, installed two 12 inch fans.

Also, You could have cut you a fuel pump access hole while you had the tank out. I've had my pump out a couple of times. I don't need to drop the tank to do it anymore. Cut the hole big enough to where the fuel pump assembly comes out. Cover it with a metal plate w/RTV around the edges.

|crash007||Finished the lift for the YJ. I had the rear lift installed and had to get the fronts done, so I did them Sunday. It's a Rubicon Express 2.5" lift but it looks like it gave me more like 4" versus 2.5"|

|Danbury95yj||Fixed my 95's heater. Thought it could have been the blower motor resistor or the fan itself. Turns out there was a corroded wire connection going to the blower motor.|

Checked/re-did numerous connections trying to figure out why she wouldn't start the other day. Replaced starter wiring, new battery leads, oil/filter change. Installed tailpipe hanger and painted the entire tailpipe black with hi-temp spray paint.
Yesterday I got the quarter windows and vented installed in the hardtop. Need to re-do weatherstrip and then it'll be ready to go on the YJ....even if I'm not ready for hardtop weather.

Got a 3/8" thick custom cut plate then mounted the ENGO e9000 winch onto it, then welded the plate onto the bumper. Needed a place to mount my roller bearing for the cable so I cut up two 3/16" thick angle steel then welded it onto my bumper. I think it turned out great.
Now I have to decide between making a bracket to hold the solenoid box above the winch since its too tight or to mount it under hood.

|TigWizard||Since I took the tip off my thumb yesterday, I won't be doing much. Maybe I can bribe my neighbor with a case of beer to change out my slip yoke and universals?|

|RawhideClab||^yeah. First one had a faulty voltage regulator and would spike for a couple of seconds then be fine for a few minutes then spike fine spike fine. So warranted that one and the second one charged for not even 5 minutes and died. I think I am gonna save up for a mean green one.|

|toddster8||^ Dunno... the one that was already on the Jeep? It seems to be sized specifically to fit on the Jeep frame and bumper. The bolt holes all lined up, however, the bolts that came with the new winch were not long enough to go through the plate and the bumper. Had to use the old ones (barring a trip to town to buy more.) Also the fairlead is wider than the old one and since the plate wasn't quite flush with the bumper, it required some spacers.|

Replaced the non-working HF winch with a new HF winch. (...er, yeah. Slow learner. And cheap.) Didn't realize that I was going to have to take the whole bumper assembly off to get access to the bolt heads.
Then I took the old winch motor apart, blew about two spoon-fulls of corrosion product out of it, and freed up a couple of frozen brushes. Gotta go to the boat and borrow a big-ass circuit breaker to test it with. If it works, I'll mount the old one on my equipment trailer.
Speaking of circuit breakers, the goofy one that came with the new winch doesn't fit any way any how in my engine compartment. (The old one was installed without any kind of circuit protection at all !) I sent away for an appropriately-sized fuse holder and ANL fuse. But now I'm thinking maybe I'd better get a Blue Sea circuit breaker. I can just imagine being stuck out in the snow and popping my one fuse...
BTW, the Blue Sea battery-terminal fuses are pretty slick - I have those on the boat, but WAY expensive.
