Re: What did you do to your XJ today

while it's been in the air on four 6ton Stands, and the axles are dropped, I sat in it, started it and let it warm up (first time in 3 weeks) and blared some sad country music..


then realized i hadnt opened the garage door or window, and began to fall asleep while it was running

This happened to me 3 times until I installed a set of MORE motor mounts. Hasn't happened since. One time I had to have a bolt extraction expert (yes there is such a thing), to extract one of the bolts cause I couldn't get it out of the block. My advise, put some after market motor mounts in it now rather then waiting for it to happen again.

Re: What did you do to your XJ today

I finally put mud flaps on my jeep! lol now i know the cops are just messing with me if i get pulled over... Cherokeefever, what size fittings did you use to hook your airlines to the ac pump? Is that orange part a water air seperator or an atuomatic tool oiler?

unbolted the 609 and measured for front axle shafts. Gusseted the trackbar mount.
