Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

For my birthday, my Beautiful Bride got a minivan. I have been D-Ding the Accord.

Last weekend, I bought a can of wasp spray for the XJ.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

A faulty Ujoint job turned in to a new inside axle shaft, u joint replacement both sides, ball joints, C gussets (weld grind wire wheel clean primer and paint), new calipers, new pads, and full on tune up.

Hoping to get it out of the damn garage and into its natural habitat soon. Any Kelly flats or moody hill runs coming up?

I can live with an ugly rig, but not THAT ugly. Every body panel that can be unbolted will be moving over. And for my OCD even found a 2004 Onyx Green grille (2004 color matched grilles are the business).

$1k for the donor, 4.7 that needs a head gasket, low compression on cylinder 8 after a belt tensioner snap.

Re: What are you doing to your rig - the continuing saga

I just put on new hatch struts I got off eBay for $18 a pair . I've been using vice grips for years I remembered to order them when I got my cooling set up which I'll be putting in tomorrow and moving my trans cooler to the rear with the new fittings . If this front mounted triple fan set up doesn't do what I need it will work great if moved to the rear ... IMG_20210721_053122954_HDR.jpg

Out of curiosity how are you plumbing the lines to the rear? I've thought about doing something similar with my MJ. read to use exhaust tubing to do it. Also are you using a high flow pump or stock?

Possibly exhaust tube on the main section in-between the flexible fittings at each eend or heavy duty marine grade hose and somw kind of flexible fitting at each end ...could just be some of the old hoses I have . The stock pump works fine for this so no need to upgrade for that purpose . I think once I open up my grill area a bit moving the trans cooler and having the hood vented while running 3 e fans the under hood should be reasonable and the big mechanical fan gone so my worry of massive collimg system failure if it hits the radiator is gone so not much reason to move it from labor to reward ratio .

Nice, I'll be interested to see how it turns out. Are you using a stock size rad or?
