Looked for parts to make a Chrysler Differential Bearing Preload Wrench for my 4:56 gear install tomorrow. Got real close. I have to go to Fastenal(sp?) in the morning to get a couple of missing parts, then off to the shop.

I'm excited to see what it will be like driving my XJ with the 4:56 gears.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Got my front axle positioned under the XJ, built and positioned the outer halves of the radius arm frame-side mounts, started to build the radius arms, taught my two-year-old to pedal his bike...

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Sat:
Installed a AA SYE on Mark's 231 T-case. Sure is nice having a 2-post lift in my shop. Made that job sooooo much easier. Ordered a Detours USA Backbone and a Superwinch EP9.0 for the Crawl. These will go on Mark's rig for the Crawl and then find their way to my ride afterwards. Got more donations for the Crawl.

Sun:
Used a weedeater and shoveled river gravel. Yuck!

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

New to this forum, just thought I'd chime in.

Brother in law and I put a 6.5" lift on my recently purchased 1999 Cherokee Saturday.

Broke it in on Sunday with a trip down to the Harpeth River. Fun!

On hwy 70 just East of White Bluff there is a trail head that takes you down there to a nice little camping spot. Get to watch all the drunk canoers pass by. It is almost an hour ride depending on how fast you like to go.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I got the 2.5 in Monday night.

Last night I hooked up most of the other junk just to fire her off and make sure all was good. She fired with a jump and ran perfect!

Tonight I will button up the rad, dust cover, heater hoses, exhaust and motors mounts. Then it will be test drive time.

Shrek, You still don't have that thing back together and running. Might as well throw it in the Harpeth and use it as a canoe.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I got the evrything bolted up and tight. Time for fluids,

Oil... check
power steering... check
brake... check
coolant... WTF?

As I was filling it coolant it was dumping right out the water pump.
Swaped pumps real quick and lit it off. Runs great. It sounds as though it may have a slight knock in the higher RPMs but that just may be the exhaust hitting the cross member.

All that is left is to get some cheap Summit gauges, replace the fragged motor mounts and she should be ready in a few weeks for the trails!
