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

took a great trip in the xj. i drove down to our property at river ranch in central florida and rode my honda atc until it was covered beyond recognition. my jeep ran great for its first ride and i was very happy with the entire day.

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

Pulled the VC. It was horrendous. It took me 2 hours to scrape all the nasty crud out of it. Replaced the gasket and such - but managed to leave out the little metal inserts that go in the CCV housing. Will my engine catch on fire without those?

Have you found the caches placed inside of fence posts yet? Next time you are out and about, look for the fence post caps painted WHITE. They have caches inside. Not sure if it's a local thing or what, but we have quite a few around us.

No I haven't ran across any of those yet. The scouts and I will be going on a hike at long hunter in a week or so and plan on placing one while we are out. I think we will be going the ammo can route.

Got my 95 yoke changed out, tried to figure out what's up with the other one now. Interesting sound.

Turned my brake drums and adjusted my rear brakes/parking brake.

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

Worked on my WJ brake swap some more. I managed to pull the stud out of the ds upper ball joint trying to remove the knuckle. Getting close now though, all components are on, was working on aligning it before I came in. Still got to refill the diff and bleed the brakes before I can test and see if anything hits/rubs in use. Hopefully the Jeep gods will be smiling upon me and everything will work out.

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

Put a Rough Country budget boost on my '97 XJ. I'm pretty happy with the looks & the ride quality. Clearance for my 30" tires is much improved. Price was reasonable, and it really wasn't too difficult to install. If the rest of the rig outlives the tires, I'd like to go with a 3" lift and 31" tires...

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

Just spent $1300.00 with quadratec.... getting ready for a major suspension/drivetrain/steering overhaul on the DD. Nothing cool though, all stock stuff. (although I did manage to throw in a new JEEP hat, and a set of tire deflators).
