Now to do the SYE/driveshaft and hopefully I can then drive over 60mph haha

Also bought the low side horn(driver side) for the jeep so that it can pass inspection...that's been out since September lol
Sweet! Sounds like it was an easy fix too.

I'm running this: https://www.ironrockoffroad.com/prod...nator-kit.html

I also have this if you wanna use it: https://www.ironrockoffroad.com/prod...27-spline.html

Got the transfer case back together yesterday.

They had to rebuild the transmission. The clutch packs started to disintegrate. So the new torq converter also had to be replaced

Hooked the new horn up and it was touching other metal and blew a fuse...didn't have extras. So today had to go and get some fuses and then install. Now both horns work!

Took it in to finally get inspected, been out since September, and it PASSED!

As for the SYI, I think I'm gonna go for the whole shebang...I'll see how it goes. If you'd be willing to help that would be great

It would probably sometime around spring, not gonna do it during the winter.

Will check.

Noticed the brakes are being funky. When stopped with the foot on the brake pedal, the pedal slowly sinks to the floor. Guess I get to do the master cylinder again.

Oh did you hear Bridgeport decided to not up their prices?

Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Spent a bunch of money today:

TUPY 0331 Head
Magnaflow Precat Assembly
Banks Torque Tube Header
Head gasket/bolts and spark plugs

Debating throwing in a THOR cowl intake and the Viper coil mod while I'm at it.

Most of the parts should be here by next weekend. Borrowing a buddy's engine hoist so I can make head removal a one man job.

Hopefully I can knock this out over a long weekend and then turn my focus back to the long arms.

Installed all new steering tie rod assembly only to find that the boot for the drag link ball joint was ripped when it started spewing grease as I greased all the ball joints. Bites.
