JK teardown currently underway with a new motor going in, and since it had 170k on it i'm rebuilding the Trans and T-case as well.

I almost feel like i shouldn't be rebuilding them (too late now though). As they were both REALLY clean inside, The fluid (last changed almost 3 years ago) while not bright red, was still red and not too brown, and no play in anything.

But, They're apart now, hopefully i don't fukc anything up putting them back together.

That's always my concern. You do maintenance because something is getting up in miles and you worry about it's reliability, but it still worked fine. Then you fukc it up while rebuilding it.

I can't believe it's June 1st. This year and the speed at which it's moving is crazy. It's hard to believe that I have been working from home since 3/19 and the last haircut I had was 3/8...

My wife has given me two haircuts. Luckily we had some clippers in the house with the guards. They are basic cuts, but at least I'm not growing out a mullet.

The mullet is alive and well here.... If something doesn't change soon I'm going to have to order clippers. I can't handle this with the heat.

My last haircut was Mid-February right before it hit. Then then they said we had to stay home I told my wife I was going full hermit and no-shaving.

She is now getting pissed, I look like Grizzly Adams. I got a mop on my head and the thickest beard I have ever had.

I did that with the beard too, but once the heat hit last week I finally trimmed it. I was sweating just sitting still. Too much hair (face and head) for "summer".

A few years ago I did the clipper cut then went at it with the razor. Felt really nice in the heat. Never really thought hair would get so hot until you shave it all off. Feels good when the wind is blowing. My wife on the other hand was not so pleased with my choice to shave.
Been thinking about doing it again.

If you mix one quart of 0w20 and one quart of 10w40 do you end up with two quarts of 5w30?
