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

For the winter/sooner the better:
Replacing rocker panels with square tubing and round kick outs so as to piviot in the rocks better
Retubing rear wheel wells
Quarter Panel guard+integrated flare (I have a two door so I have more room to work with)
Hunting down a short/bad ground that is causing my O2 sensor to malfunction
Fixing two axle shaft seals (such a pain in the Dana 44 without a press)
Need to get new ring gear bolts in as I reused them on the aussie install and it makes me uneasy.

Although im sure no one cares about my list, it has been good to organize what I need to do

It's not too often you see them in this good of a condition. I'm feeling pretty lucky to have found them.

my list is full of tiny stupid crap - mainly to get ready for winter - most of which i'll forget to write down but here are a few things:

service both diffs and replace front breather hose
flush tranny
drain/fill xfer case
fix whatever leak i have up front
fix my driver side brake/running light issue
figure out why my rear defrost stopped working and fix it
get an alignment
replace a stuck caliper and wheel cylinder

and the only thing im looking forward to doing..... BUY BUILD AND INSTALL A NEW AUDIO SYSTEM!

firm believer that carpet should be cleaned daily. get rid of all the road grime, else mildew sets in.

if owner is not cleaning the carpet, or there is a concern that they may not be cleaning it, then i dont even consider going in it

Last summer I saw a nice set of leather two-door seats...with razor cuts in them. The same puke has left his mark on some really nice sploder seats too.

I've made a dollar or two off sploder seats with the air cushions. I wish they were easier to stuff into an XJ.
