Re: A Teen at Work!

Okay, so here's what has been going on for the past month. As I said, my CV axle had a tear in the boot so i had that replaced. That was one issue fixed, but I still had traction control acting up when moving at slow speeds. I thought this was the usual wheel speed sensor, so I had them replaced on both sides of the Jeep. Then I figured it could have been the wheel hub as the sensors were not the fix. I just assumed that since the CV boot was torn on the driver side that I should start by fixing the driver side hub. That didn't work either. So, I moved on to the passenger side hub and that was it. Took me a month, but I got it all done. I also replaced the EGR valve, serpentine belt, and the oil pressure sender.

So, I ended up with new wheel hubs in the front and a new driver side axle.



Also, if you're wondering how to reach the oil pressure sending unit, theres an easy way to reach this guy if you take the front skid off.

Re: A Teen at Work!

Another project that I worked on while I waited on parts was a custom CB mount. I Googled hidden CB mount and saw a location from a guy on a Yota forum that I wanted to emulate. I don't use the radio too often, so I thought the area would work well and I'm very pleased with the results.

Re: A Teen at Work!

I finally got around to installing the new Bilstein 4600 struts along with Crown Automotive lower isolators from Chris at Crawl Offroad, and new Moog strut mounts and isolators. While I had everything apart, I did some paint work. Starting with a lot of prep work, I used a Rustoleum primer followed by their rubber coating and clear coat. I also repainted my stock coils just to make them look better! I'll post more pictures of the painted work soon as I just got new Rocky Road Outfitters upper control arms, again, from Eric!



I gained over an inch of lift with the new isolators and struts!

Re: A Teen at Work!

Another addition that was probably a little overdue was the Billet Tech Oil Catch Can (Catch Cans). I bought it without it pre painted and just rattle canned it with the usual Rustoleum to match my other red accents! It's very well built and to be honest, I am very surprised with the amount of oil it has picked up in the short amount of time I've had it installed. I just got an L shaped bracket from Lowes, drilled the holes to size, and used a strut mount bolt to mount the can.



This was at just over 100 miles:

Hey everyone,

If you have a WK and wouldn't mind taking this survey from Bushwacker, you could win a set of new flares! They are finally starting R&D on new sets and this survey is for more info on what we're looking for in flares.
