Drove around for about an hour on very, very slushy roads and looking at our once a year or so decent (for us, of course) snow. Qtrac was in its element today... glad my locker wasn't in, I imagine. Oh well, it's going in soon anyway.

i moved the Waggy from one parking spot to another. was going to change the alternator belts but f&*#ing Autozone only had one, gotta pick 'em up in the morning.

supposedly my dad is taking my J20 to his car club meeting tomorrow. i haven't driven it since Thanksgiving, it's being stored at his place for another month or so.

re-reinstalled the driver's side head after a not-so-successful 1st installation of both heads.

finished up my newly rebuilt transmission install. OH SO NICE!!

nothing like going from a warn-out trans that slips and doesn't shift,
to a super-smooth shifting truck. can't wait to put some more miles on it.

picked up a razor grill in good shape complete with headlight doors, and headlight buckets and headlights and retaining rings, all for 38 bucks in TN. Now all I have to do is strap it to the trunk of my wife's cobalt and bring it 800 miles back home to Tampa!! LOL

What I wanted to do on my Jeep this weekend.
Crawled under it, looked up, saw all the leaks and then had to remind myself that this is the way these things marked their territory.:D

I'll say this much the only thing thats not leaking is the cooling system, knock on wood.

Worst part is that the parts for the job won't get here til Monday.:mad: :banghead:

And I really wanted to be:drivin: it on Sunday.

Pulled the front bumper off. Removed fog lights and brackets. Polished bumper on vice. Took factory tow bar off. Re-mounted front bumper. When I bought this rig it was missing the passenger trim, but the guy gave me a set which I installed today. Polished rear bumper.

Tomorrow I will be replacing all of the outer window wipes / rubber. Cleaning the rest of the glue from the tint I removed. Kicking back and drinking a cold one and will contemplate what I will do next.

Pulled the rusty,holey coffin shaped fuel tank out,In prep for the grand cherokee poly tank behind the rear axle!

duncanstives 03-21-2009 06:28 PM

Drove the crap out of it...

So I could go pick up the 33in TSLs I bought for it :D

Fired up the woodstove over at the shop and finally took care of some unfinished business I just havent had the time for.

Finally got the proper size of replacement screws to fasten the center hub rings to the stock rims after the boneheads at the Tire Shop in the next town over lost 4 of the 6 screws while mounting my M/T 35' tires.

With that taken care of, I could finally get the rubber on, and it made a real difference in motivating me.

Next, I got around to getting the centerlink back on and finally spent a couple hours (I work alone and work slow, afterall) wrestling with the front outter U-bolt on the pass side which had gone cockeyed and keeping me from getting the axle mounted up properly on the springs. Once again, the ratchet strap, floor jack and a really long screwdriver got the job done, but it was a far cry from what I'd call "effortless".
