If i could find the picture of my new lift i will upload later. But after steering box fix and Wooly's wheelin trip i saved up and lifted jeep. I went with the 4 inch suspension lift from Rough Country. Ended up running 33 BFG A/T's. This is the first 5 mins with the new tires on the 4 banger.
:punk:
I don't have pictures of us replacing the raditor but it was a 5 hour process and many many many cuss words were said :whistling:. Replace the raditor cap 3 times. I have had hoses come off driving :nonono:. But this one kept the jeep alot cooler, the old one was missing 3/4 of the core.

This was the first time i have ever been disconnected. About a week later i was jumping off a car at work and i had to pull upon the curve to get too the battery. Well after i jumped him off i discorved engine coolant pouring out from the Jeep. Took it to the shop and found out i needed a new water pump. :banghead:

Another week passes by and the volts on the gauge went off the reader haha. Had to get new battery terminals. That was about the 3rd or 4th week in a row in the shop :nonono:.

About 1 week after that, my Check Enigne Light come on.. Back to the shop she goes.. :facepalm: Was told to run Seafoam through the system. And it worked :dance:. A week went by and it came back on. Took it back to mechanic shop and found out that my cat. converter was trashed. :banghead:. $450 dollars later i had a better running jeep!

On November 10th, 2012 me, drake, david, and logan all went to wooly's and had a really good time. Got a little bit of mud... Everywhere :facepalm:.

Sunday afternoon I decided to at least wash the engine off because of all the mud from Wooly's. Well the check engine light ended up coming back on again..... notice a trend? Took it to the shop yesterday and found out that the distrubter was just cached in mud. Got that fixed and went out in town and raised a little hell.

As stated earlier i'm running 33's on my jeep. Well i haven't gotten around to beef up the rear end. Thought about my options and decided to go with Superior's Axle and C-Clip Eliminator Kit for the D35. I'm getting the stuff from Quadratec for around $700 and having 4 Wheel Parts install them as soon as i have the money. Decieded that locking the rear would be a waste of time right now as i don't really need the D35 locked.

After the rear end is upgraded, i want to lock the front D30 with Detroit Locker. But I'm stuck on what all i will need to do the front end. I want to run 30 spline in the front end with the locker but, i can't find the 30 spline locker's for the D30. :nonono:

You can install those parts yourself. Very easy. Keep that money in your pocket.
we dont have the tools nor the know how to install lockers or the rest of those parts.
