Cheap: Your Jeep is getting a serious overall. How you feel about the Long Arm Kit so far??

Eh...just seems like it bro. I work out of a union hall so I rat hole all this junk when the cash is flowing and I have no time for when I'm laid off and have time but no cash As far as the long arm setup I've got all the mounts done so the hard stuff is finished but I want to wait before I cut the factory ones off till after we move.The WJ's got a lot of work to do and I don't want to be dialing in a suspension during that. Also I decided to keep my Zone Offroad track bar instead of the R/C one but I want to retrofit it with Kevin's big bolt super hard bushing kit so I'm gonna be waiting on parts.The Zone bar is a lot beefier. Probably install the disco's this week though. The other thread has some updates if you haven't seen them yet.

Home made bro. Recipe is a spare cap,a steel tire valve with the core removed,some hose,clamps,a small shut off valve and a quick connect. A combination of Advance Auto and Lowes. Just regulate your compressor to under 20# and keep an eye on the fluid level in the m/c. Works like a dream. Also the....."helper".....well she can stay in the house

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

That's a good idea, the "helper" isn't always that "helpful"!

That is indeed a great idea Dave. My experience with my "helper" is probably the same as yours, i ended up by just gravity bleeding, but it takes quite some time.
Seeing the color of the brake fluid it seems that it was about time for some fresh fluid as well he.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Believe it or not Frank, that fluid is only a little over a year old. I did a complete fluid change last spring when I changed all the brake lines.It's not as bad as it looks in the pic though it still did get darker than I expected already.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Cool thing about the bleeder is you can use it on anything. You just have to get the matching m/c cap.
