Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Looks great Travis, really nice work.

Dustin, that was one thing that really annoyed me during Winter cleaning under the hood. One minute its all fine then bang, hoods on your head. You will love the Addco and good choice on the bushings - they are a must!!

I start so many jobs that should just take about 1 minute, 2 hours later I'm still at it.


Got the Gen 3 projectors and XenonDepot HID kit back in today. No more carrots before night driving...



Just got some AC clutch to remove from the block and my polished pipes...

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Ha, thats the problem with working at a construction equipment dealer. If its wet its muddy if its dry its dusty. Hard to keep clean either way.

I like my jeep both ways, clean or dirty depending on my mood.... just like my wife....

There's hope for you yet son Oh and when your wife sees (or I tell her)your comment above I'm afraid its back to manual sex for you bud More mud pics! You wouldn't happen to have an extra Kobelco key laying around there would ya? It's the only one I don't have for my ring.

Lol thanks but I usually do a good job of getting myself into manual mode

We don't do much with Kobelco, we are a Komatsu dealer primarily.

That sucks ass dude....I'm pretty sure those are dealer parts unfortunately. Check out justforjeeps (on the vendor forum). You may also want to check the classifieds on here. There's at least one WJ being parted out on there.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

I'll be continuing the plasti-dip badges along with replacing rear sway bar links, rear axle seals/bearings, front pinion seal, and upgrading to a Rancho steering stabilizer.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

My Jeep currently looks like its a mixed race between newer and old. I have the back bumper painted, handles and mirrors plasti-dip'd.
From the rear doors to the front bumper, thats is to be completed hopefully this weekend.
Also got a code p1281( thermostat stays open) bought the thearmostat and then lost the code. Am still going to switch out the old thermostat, not taking any chances.
Wll also Dip the wheels.
Also got the "darkened" license plate holders. Makes it look much better.
