    Re: I bought a TJ

    Thanks for the offer. I might be looking to buy someone's used suspension kit in a year or two, but at the moment I'm trying to keep it low enough so I dont have to start messing around with the...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    I think I'm going to avoid going down a rabbit hole here and just replace the rear, upper, axle side bushings on both sides. Laying under the jeep with the parking brake on, I can roll the jeep back...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    It seems like this shouldnt be so difficult, but its unclear to me which control arm bushings are common with which on a TJ.

    This is my best guess currently:
    Front upper frame and axle are the...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    Thanks, Steve. Your spacers should be 0.25 taller than mine. I think I'm going to need a little bit more than that. I found .75in spacers for $15 online. Probably going to pull the trigger on...

    Re: Harbor Freight Jackstand Recall

    I kinda like northern tool as a better compromise for cost and quality, or at least I that's the perception I have. For all I know they are made by the same factory in china. These 12ton stands were...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    Got tested. The jeep passed emissions with a decent amount of margin. I was a little worried. It does have 236K on the clock.

    Now I need to make an appointment with Jeffco DMV to title and...
  8. Re: Rear Main Seal replacement - dig me out of a hole??

    How many miles are on your 4.2, Jim?
  9. Re: Rear Main Seal replacement - dig me out of a hole??

    If you had to do it over again, what would you think about using a brass punch? I'm thinking one could swing at that a little harder without worrying about marring up the block or the crank... that...
  10. Re: 05+ superduty dana 60 solid axle swap question

    Do you mean a dana 60 out of an 05+ superduty or a super 60 out of a 05+ F450 or F550?

    I am not a fabricator, but I swapped a 05+ superduty axle into my van, so I spent some time trying to wrap...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    So the body lift and motor mount lift are installed. This was a classic 80-20 principle type of project where I must have spent a whole day trying to get two broken body bolts out. I ended up taking...
  12. Re: Theft of $5 Million in CO OHV Funds at Stake!!!

    Well, they may take my money after I spent it on an OHV permit, but they cant take my time after I spend it cleaning up our sponsored trails.
  13. Re: Theft of $5 Million in CO OHV Funds at Stake!!!

    Another thought... now if it were executed as a loan to the general fund to be paid back over 5 to 10 years, I would be quite a bit less upset about it.

    But I'm not holding my breath.
  14. Re: Theft of $5 Million in CO OHV Funds at Stake!!!

    I feel like I need to know more about this before I can form a complete opinion. If the state would be exhausting all other forms of budgetary wrangling from tax-generated sources (as opposed to...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    Sure, thanks! I was going to try and replicate that with a couple layers of 1/2" plate and some roll pins, but this would save me a few hours. I could drive up into Denver in the morning if that's...

    Changed the oil in the diffs, T-case, engine, and flushed the brake system with a half-a-gallon of fluid. I'd like to change the oil in the transmission, but I read AX-15's dont fare well with GL-5...

    I appreciate anyone's two cents. I am no lawyer or expert either, but this is what I think I know so far:

    More tinkering... there was a sizable leak out of the end of the steering box. I think the issue was a damaged o-ring on the cap opposite of the input shaft. It was easy to remove and would have...
  21. Re: FrankenJeep Parts Ident plz - Idler pulley bearing replacemen

    If I had to wager a guess, i'd say that they crimped the bearing into the pulley because it would be cheaper than a press-fit. Press fits can be tricky to get right, and tool wear would be...

  25. Re: FrankenJeep Parts Ident plz - Idler pulley bearing replacemen

    If you can not get it to go back together, maybe consider replacing the stud with a shoulder bolt. You'd have to drill the flat out of the mounting hole, but that wouldn't be the end of the world.
