Stuff be happening




The plan is to take her up to jeep blessing in may. Just finished up with new spicers in the axles and some new balljoints. Next will be trac-bar and them lousy control arm mounts.

Plated and insured!

I picked up a cheap 8.8 from a 97 exploder with 4.10. The pinion was sloppy and the spiders were pitted and junk. Refreshed the bearings races and seals and welded it solid. Plan is to drive it up to the blessing and then install that next month.

Too high class. Keep the 35 in it. It'll last forever.

Spent the day pampering her today. Got the toe set a " in, fixed the overheating headlamp switch and dash lamps. Found a mouse nest built behind the dash board. The little rodent chewed off the insulation on some wires and shorted out the circuit.

I finally trimmed back my shackle boxes after setting them @ a 45 angle.

And it got a wash and vacuuming. I found a good spot for my flag.



I did notice this bulge in the sidewall. It hasn't affected the tread so I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.
