Iím running H2 wheels. I love the look of them but I donít like that they need to be bored out to fit ford hubs. But, after being bored, they are great for an aluminum wheel with no bead protection.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I've been able to tackle a little on the XJ each night this week. All I've been able to do so far is remove the leaf springs/bolts from the drivers side and removed the shackle/bolt from the passenger side. I still need to remove the spring eye from the frame mount. Every bolt was rusted to the sleeve and has had to be cut out. If I have time tonight, I'll cut the spring eye bolt and remove, then I'll be ready to install the new springs.

An A-pillar? How much of an A-pillar? And I don't save them. I kill them. I'll gladly chop you out an A-pillar though.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I actually got a bit done this weekend. This might not look like a lot, but with two kids, I tackle what I can when I can. The leaf spring removal was very time consuming and laborious.

-Removed the last leaf spring eye bolt. (Extensive cutting of leafs and all 4 bolts.)
-Installed shackle relocation brackets.
-Installed KJ disc brake backing plate. More brake parts came in. I now have all I need to complete the disc brake swap.
-Reinstalled spider gears.

I watched a bunch of NickInTime Youtube videos on various modifications and repairs to his 1989 Cherokee. Very interesting stuff.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Finished up the install of my cromoly shafts Saturday morning. We then went to see the "Wall that Heals" Saturday and found Deanna's dads good friend's name on the wall. They have some Vietnam era vehicles out there including a Cobra. Sunday we went to the Columbia Zoo. I was impressed with how shaded it was and the zoo in general. Saw a baby giraffe and koala.
