Got the oil changed for the year, alignment done so now it drives straight finally. Took the soft top completely off and the doors off, love my best top dust cover for this time of the year. Hope to keep the top off all summer, maybe fall unless I need to drive more than an hour.

As far as I can tell, this used to be green at some point!
I started getting ready for some serious work this month! Started flushing the crap out of the cooling system in preparation for new radiator, water pump, fan clutch, thermostat and hoses next week. While all that is torn out, I'll be replacing the 210k mile timing chain, timing gears and the seal/gasket on the timing cover too. So over the weekend, I am running Preston Flush+Clean with distilled water for the weekend commute, then another few flushes of fresh water before I start demolition work.

It always feels good to get this kind of stuff done. I need to go through mine and do that.

I got the new platform carpeted today and added some tie down points. I then built a tailgate table. I've been wanting to do this for a while. It came out great!
Epoxied a hard drive magnet to the wood and it snaps closed perfectly. View attachment 4431788
Nice work! That set-up is really coming along!

My Vision X headlights came in earlier this week and I put them on today. I have yet to test them out, but I've been plenty happy with the JW Speaker Evolution J2s I previously had on.

That said, I'm not sure which I prefer aesthetically. I like how the Vision X blends in with the chrome grille and goes back to a somewhat stock look if you don't pay too close attention. However, the grille contrast with the black headlights and matching the black paint looks good as well.

Replaced the timing chain/gears in my ‘01. Had the pan off about 6 months ago and noticed a lot of slack (close to 1/2”).
Pulled the font of and put the new one in. Old one was worse than before. Guess it was to be expected after 16 miles short of 179,000 miles.
Back together and running well. Front end is quieter, but still noisy in back. It has always been a ticker, since I got it.
Also found out my alternator is cracked on the bottom. Guess I’ll be getting a new one, soon.

finished wiring the twin compressor under the hood and removed the throttle body spacer the previous owner installed. Those are the dumbest things ever sold for cars, especially straight six tractor engines. Pretty sure all it did was move the throttle cable bracket so it pulled on the cable slightly. Like I was always slightly on the gas. Engine idles better and the trans shifts smoother now. I have to say, the M.O.R.E. under hood mount for the arb twin compressor in a TJ is top notch. Just don't have a throttle body spacer (which you shouldn't in the first place) I'll upload photos in a bit when I get home.
