It all started when Lost the Steering box!

I went in with the new one ($170) to have it installed..THey said it was the wrong one they used one from O'rilleys @ 288, but needed to replace drag link 264$ & a bushing 42$

add labor 340$ and it was a over $1000.

so my new policy we use my parts if they dont fit were done as i shop and swap This was a $500-600job

It all works but soo disappointed ,,,GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

^that’s no good. I love the solid white lettering on bfgs.

Today I pulled the front wheels off and started polishing. Turns out they’re Alcoa’s.


Nice work! Now scrub those tires down with some BLECHE-WITE and you'll have new looking wheels!;)

Finished up installing a factory transmission oil cooler I scavenged out of the junkyard the other day. The lines were intact so I got those too and used them.

I also put in a secondary filter in the return line back to the transmission to help keep my transmission fluid nice and clean.

I got everything assembled and tightened down and gave her a test run. Everything checked out good and leak free. I believe I have about $70 invested in the cooler and filter setup.

I used my temp gun and checked the oil cooler temp and it registered between 160-170 degrees.

This will definitely help for the long haul out to Moab next week and the extra heat generated out on the trails.

Been getting the “jiggle jiggle” on the driver’s door while driving. I saw that the door striker bushing was gone and the pass side bushing was cracked. Replaced them both. That little nut or whatever it is that’s inside the body looked like it would have fallen down into the void if I removed the striker bolt, so I used the sharp end of my light tester to hold it so it didn’t fall while I put on the new bushings. A little trial and error adjusting of the exact position of the striker and no more jiggle!

EDIT: I just had to swing back by this post and say wow. It’s crazy how much quieter it is in the cab now. Even before the old bushings broke, it wasn’t this quiet. Don’t get me wrong, there are other rattles and creaks, but the cab noise is down an easy 50%, just from door rattles. Not bad for a $5 fix. :thumbup

Yo,
Unlocked Warn® Manual Locking Hubs. Then strung burgundy grape vine canes to trellis.
What a life!

Pulled the body mount bolts out. After 266k on this rig. It took some map gas to heat up the lower nuts so they would come free with the impact gun. Next thing is to come up with how I lift the body off the frame to resto the frame.
I do have the motor, trans, transfer case and driveshafts out. The seats, console and carpets are out too.
How much do we figure the rest weighs??? the only thing left is the whole body minus the front bumper, header panel. The rear bumper and tire carrier with 35 are still on it.

Maybe I better take those off to shave some pounds prior to taking the body off. Hmmmm

I had a '92, but I don't remember having a warning light that said "Overdrive Off", I'm 99% sure that it had the regular PRND21 display where you have that OD off stuff. Is that some custom dash?

Yes sir. I had to relocate the indicator light when I made the custom center console. Here's a link to the thread.

Good eye, btw. I was wondering if someone might catch it.

Went to have brake pads replaced at a local shop.

JUST. BRAKE. PADS.


$850+ quote.....:histerica :banghead

I asked which jeweler are they getting the gold-plated pads from...



Broke out my Chilton and Haynes repair manuals I did the job myself (with my son's help).
