Re: What did you do to your XJ today

I got some new window decals that I ordered in the mail today, and I'll put them on as soon as I get my Jeep out of the shop..... does that count as anything?

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

I should probably do that someday. Got pulled over yesterday for doing 6 over, and I'm pretty sure my speedo was right at 25.

Then I got hassled for having no mudflaps as well.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Went and bought Big Pete's D44. Turns out they are 3.07 gears so I'm going to have to regear to use them
The list of crap to do before NWfest is getting big.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Yesterday I installed some new coils in the front along with a new tracbar and a shackle in the rear. Also some new bilstein shocks for the front. The shocks made a world of difference for the front and the tracbar totally eliminated the bump steer and other horrible noises coming from the front end. Now Im trying to remove those studs from the tcase crossmember so that I can get the drop kit in there until I can afford an sye and new driveshaft. Then tommorow I will install my cool new shackle brackets so someone can pull me out of the crud. Assuming that this tcase drop ever gets in Im pretty sure Im gonna be done wrenching for a while

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

not much today... went and picked up Josh's old doors, tried to get the windshield out also, but gave up after about an hour. Swapped out my old tires for some temporary rollers (thanks Nick) till my new ones show up. Took the old ones to the shop to have em unmounted. Sunday i will be trimming the bottoms off all four new doors to clear the rocker replacements, then ripping out the rest of the interior, front seats, and whats left of the carpet.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

Installed iron scorpion steering box brace, new RC quick disco's for a TJ (great design) and thought about tearing apart the front end to put in the new locker, instead installed the sticker and finally went and picked up my 68 el camino from my uncles property
