so no pics, but V8 ZJ steering on it and new tie rod ends and boots, it made a noticeable difference..... looks the same though..... about all I have done lately. New gears soon so I will throw some pics up tomorrow.

Lots of pics and videos!!!!!!


So the GC is like a different Jeep now!!!

Put all new pads, front rotors and front calipers, and checked the fluids and the powers steering was about dry, so the breaks and the PS got a full flush and new fluid.... It has twice the torque and pep now!!! So stoked, and hopefully my mpg's go up from 5-8mpg cause the brakes are not dragging now!!!

so lets look at some pics cause we can lol

The old and new stopping stuff


Old rotors were warped and pitted really bad, this is the better of the two


Jeep has some bling now!!!!!!!!!!1


V8 Steering and fluid make a world of diffrence turning the 33's. I was thinking about getting a better steering box but it has no issues cranking the 33's tith 2 fingers now!!


and some random pics:
Pic of the Grand next to my Master Sergent's H2 with a 8'' and 38's (which has never been off road)


all muddy


GC and a few friends including Jeep_Shaun after a great trail ride


note to self..... don't go mudding alone without my recovery kit or another truck..... ohhh and if 4wd is broken this was a really long afternoon cause I had 3 kids with me....


water was only like 3'' deep too, the mud/clay was nasty


and a few videos from some summer/fall trail rides with Jeep_shaun:


my little girl getting mud in her mouth


little fun
http://youtu.be/0uerK5ypV2M

up a fun little hill, with 2wd, was strait soft sand. Vid doesn't do it justice
http://youtu.be/eMAvGokKLCI

Jeep_shaun in the little deep mud pit
http://youtu.be/12Nb2D7AXE4

http://youtu.be/P4Laa0e3F6M

Part 2:
another of the same pit with a few of us in it.... the red Cherokee is on a bronco frame with a big block twin turbo direct injected.... damn thing is mean... and I mad it once with broken 4wd drive lol

So the other day I got a hair up my ass and was tired of looking at all the chipping paint and surface rust....... time to black her out....

With the help of 1slo_camaro we did it today.... $25 worth of rustoleum triple coat flat black, $10 of sand paper and a $0.79 roll of tape.... we got to painting!!!

Crappy pics but I will get better ones..... turned out WAY better then I hoped!!!







little better pics:








looks a million times better!!!!
