I wouldn't call it overlanding, but rigs are similar in build to overlanders. AT tires and camping style setups. That type of wheeling bores me to tears, but I still want to be street legal. Guess I need to fix that busted taillight and put the headlights back in the grille

just curious, do u plan on moving back the rear axle to fit the 37s?

gonna have to. just hope I don't have to relo the tank.

i've always looked at some of the crazier builds and said "no way, never hacking my jeep up like that". guess who's about to hack their jeep up?

also thought about going with 35s and stock axles. the amount of work I'm about to do is a little nuts to gain 2 inches of tire size.

Trimmed my flares up a bit to make them look better

Started to do my ruffstuff diff cover on the rear, bolts were too short. Should have ordered new ones from ruffstuff. And a gasket so I don’t have to mess with rtv

Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Gave them some FLARE eh?

LOL

Started up my 85 XJ frankenjeep diesel, still runs like new. Still needs a new brake MC.

Got to test out my new heavy duty 1200 cranking amps li-ion-mini-battery jump starter battery on the 89 white xj I finished the leaf spring nightmare on elm street repair job on. Worked great. I was kinda shocked. Got it on a new China/ebay style website Bangcok something ??? with all the bells and whistles, for USB or cigarette lighter changing and for charging cell phones connection to a laptop etc, cool features. Paid about $65/delivered IIRC. Got tired of pulling out the power cord and Battery charger every time the mystery electron bandit drains the battery on one of non-DD jeeps. It is a totally random problem on one of them.

Still need to sand, prime and paint the roof on my wagoneer and fix the rain leaks before the next puddle jumping frog choking rain event arrives.

Put a new rain tarp on the remains of the 89 that got rolled, that I need to finish stripping....Lots of round-to-its on the bucket list for this old fella.

Diff covers on

Flares on the other side done.

Only parts sitting on my bench now are motor mounts and a fan timer.

Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Nice. Time to paint the roof on mine.

Helped my daughter over the phone 1500 miles away replace her first tail light assy, the bulbs, blower resistor pack, swap the dash gauge assy, replace a bad heater core on/off coolant valve Y assy, on her 89 Renix and plugs and wires. All a first for here.

Re: What was done to YOUR rig(XJ/MJ) today MECHANICALY????

Horns now work on my Jeep. I apparently had no idea what I was doing when I wired in the new horns.

Have new parking brake hardware and proper parking brake cables on the way so I can have a working parking brake for the first time in a long time.

Then its off to get the rear axle geared and maybe locked.

I've been daily-ing mine as the e30 is in the shop.

Have a bad reverb or whatever it's called. Noise coming from a speaker that is connected to how I push on the throttle.
