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

So Friday the jeep died doing some yard work at Deanna's. Saturday we went to the farmers market for some local produce. Then we went to Fire Fest. Saw some antique fire trucks and neat old cars too. Watched them set a mock bedroom on fire and put it out with a 1920 fire truck. They also set another mock bedroom on fire with a sprinkler system. It was neat but didn't quite go as I think they thought it would. We then headed to Twin Peaks in Columbia for lunch. It was entertaining watching the football fans watch the Clemson game. Sunday we came over to Hartsville and picked up my FSM and my FI power train manual to try and figure out what was up with the jeep. Ended up being the coil. I also learned how to test my cps which is not done like I thought it was.....

Otherwise - still sitting there racking up storage fees.
Why won't the axles work? The front is a bolt in. An Artec truss for the 8.8 fixes the rear.

Ed, I made that comment this before I did enough deep research. I can absolutely use both axles under a ZJ. I don't know about the Artec truss, but there are 8.8 ZJ weld-on bracket kits available.

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

The Artec truss is really nice and integrates everything into the axle you need. I’m planning on going that route when our 8.8 is ready to be built for the Grand.

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

Had I not rolled the XJ in July, today I would be running Imogene Pass into Ouray, and overnighting to run the Black Bear Road tomorrow.

Instead I washed clothes....
