Re: Important

Spent the weekend up in Lake Geneva for my wife's family reunion. Good times. Good people.

We set up tent with other family members in grandpa's backyard. My air mattress went flat and I had to sleep on the ground with the baby next to me. Add a case of beer before hand and you have a rough morning.

But

They had A LOT of thick cut bacon as soon as I was up.


Going back to WI this coming weekend. This time to Two Rivers to see her other grandpa. We may make our way up to Door County. Not to sure yet what he has planned, but I know he loves it up there.

Re: Important

Had an interesting summer job opportunity pop up...I am usually not very busy I'm the summer so I've been looking at anything that seems interesting in the area so I don't have to leave town so much. There was an old posting for a boat rental and maintenance supervisory position at one of the resorts next to home. Sounds like it pays okay and would be 7-3 Monday through Friday from June to Sept...mostly changing oil and spark plugs, but the owner got really interested when I told him him how much work I've actually done on boats and wants to have an interview soon. Last guy was there 17 years and the resort has great reviews....

It has piqued my interest

Ironrock has a sweet exhaust system for it. Most zj guys usually use car sound or magnaflow.

Hobag is a dealer and can usually do better than what iron rock will offer you.

The damn lower radiator transmission cooler line.

When I did the radiator in the 2000 rebuilder xj, it was a pain, but I got the four prong connector off with a small screwdriver. It helped that everything in front of the radiator was gone.

But this one as having none of it. Tried the plastic QD tool, the metal QD one too, and some handheld ones too. But no luck on any of them. Quite frustrated at this point.

So I borrowed a cordless angle grinder(omg, where have you been my life), and just cut the damn hose. I will get some 3/8" or 5/16" trans line and some hose clamps and call it done. Some say that fix won't last, and it might not. I'll just keep an eye on it. If something happens, I will get a new line and be done with it.
another reason that manual transmissions are better. I hate that line.
THe radiators wit ha screw in fitting are way better, at least then you can unscrew the barb and deal with the fitting. I nearly cut it off the last one I did on the 01. After I broke the metal QD tool I had and had to resort to the plastic one. Somehow I got that bastard off.

Re: Important

Yea ive seen those that iron rock has. Thought about them but don't know if i will really see that much gains going with a performance cat over a oem style cat. Plus i already have the muffler so mainly just need a good cat to go with it. Might try to start adding a little power to 5.2 in the grand.

He would be better off going straight to them on that, I have to charge in state sales tax to anyone in Indiana...7% adds up.
