Re: What did you do to your WK today?

well if you don't have a good ball joint set don't even attempt it... to install both of the uppers it litterally took me applying all the pressure my 1/2" impact would apply to the ball joint press then hitting the back of the adaptor with my air hammer and a flat bit... it would move a mm or 2 then apply more pressure with the impact followed by more hitting with the air hammer. Not easy, but its done! The lowers were MUCH easier than the uppers.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Busy day for the WK yesterday – Got in touch with Kolak and ordered some Bilsteins for both my Jeep and fiancé’s Xterra, plus picked up a Daystar BB. Super excited about getting those installed. Have a week off from grad school next week and would like to cross this project off my list. Also installed a new PCV valve and tried to change out my EGR valve but don’t have the tools to get back in there.

On a kind of semi-Jeep related topic, I decided I was going to start working on finishing up my garage. The previous owner or builder installed sheetrock throughout the entire garage (minus the area above the garage door, about 4’ from door to ceiling) but only the back wall was started to be mudded and there’s quite a bit of aging on the drywall paper (yellowed). I picked up some tape and mud last and started in on that project. One wall is taped, and ˝ way mudded so not a bad start. I think I’m going to go with a light grey for the inside with maybe a black stripe around the wall where it meets the concrete (that will be epoxied, probably grey, this summer) or go with a 2 color theme, split around 4' off the ground.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

replaced some of my interior lights to LEDs. Map lights, under dash lights, and glove box light. Just waiting to get my other LEDs to change out the others. Its crazy how much more light the LEDs give off!
