I changed my rusted out oil pan after pulling into the garage 2 days ago and a hour later there was a oil puddle about two quarts, Upon a heart beating out of my chest inspection it was several rusty pin hole in the pan. Mid week I plan on changing the front axle joints before the weather gets really bad wish me luck.

What product did you use? I have an 8 gallon compressor and rustproofing sprayer kit (gun, wands, etc). I sprayed the inside of the frame, other boxed in areas, along the perimeter of the underside, up in back of the tail lights, and in the doors last week. I still have to spray the brake lines and some other areas I didn't cover. I used Rust Check - Coat and Protect which is the most reputable product in this neck of the road salt area.
Not sure. Had my exhaust replaced a few weeks ago and the guy at a shop owed me a favor. Wasn't expecting that but he offered so I graciously accepted. Scraped and cleaned the entire underbody and sparayed and brushed it on.

Today I cleaned up some wiring. I mounted my iphone (which is now my ipod) to my dash awhile ago but had wires all over the place. It was always plugged into the cigarette lighter in plain view. The battery is just about crapped out (gets about 15 to 20 minutes of play before it dies) so I need a constant power source. To make it work I had to plug the Aux wire into the power plug and then into the radio. A separete line goes form the plug to the iphone.


I bought a fuse adapter and installed it on the fuse panel. I hooked it up to the rear defogger. I don't have a hardtop so i have no use for the circuit. The curcuit gets cut off when the key is out so it will not drain my battery if left on.


I hooked the ground up to a gounded bolt under the dash. Its up and to the left of the fuse panel.


I then connected everything and tucked it up under the dash behind the glove box.


I ran all the wires behind the dash so they are out of site. The power is behind the glove box. The aux line runs from the plug itself, behind the dash and into the ash tray. I open it up and can plug it into my radio. The line to the iphone is to the left of the fog light/ rear defog / rear wiper switches and tucks in between the radio bezel and dash.

I cut out part of the rear of the roll cage so I can fit a single PRP racing seat back there between the king shocks that come through the floor.The littlest kid's so excited to have her own spot back there.

I removed the pinstriping that was on there since I bought in 2000, washed it for the first time in about 10 years, and cleaned my rims for the first time in about a year.

Bet it rides better, is quieter and has more power after that work. Something psychological happens after a vehicle is recently cleaned up.

Bought a new to me 97 TJ on Sunday. Today I went outside a few times to stare at it. Put up an ad for rear seat belts, and off to SOS to register and get a plate for it tomorrow.
