Out with the old....



And in with the new



Amazing how much better the Jeep looks without the rusty rails.

Swapped out the RBK headunit for an RAZ headunit. Cassette adapter backup for Sirius or iPod in case the box takes a dump, plus easier bass/treble and fade/balance controls.

Yesterday, the bf cleaned, degreased and lightly sandblasted the Mopar skids, then put a light coat of rust converter on.

Today, put dark primer on and let each side bake in the sun. Tomorrow, will start putting coats of Rustoleum Professional gloss on.

Looks like you'll have it all ready for winter.

Just fine, Charlie. Until this incredibly stupid winter goes away, no work on the Jeep. We're about to get slammed with more tomorrow into Mon Sad

I have quick struts, sway bar bushings & end links for the front, shocks and parking brake shoes & hardware for the rear. And front driveshaft CV head to replace. Plus, of course, to bolt up the skids.

And none of it will get done until the snow, ice and cold disappears.

In the meantime, I've replaced the sway bar end links and bushings, rebuilt the front driveshaft CV joint and replaced the passenger front wheel hub/bearing assembly. Shocks and quickstruts still to be installed.

CV head, before:


After:


End link after


Bushing after:


New bearing (Timken)


New vs old (OEM)


And a new belt and tensioner/idler assembly

Did great last winter. I'm just catching up on maintenance. My best friend & her husband are not mechanical in any way; they have to take it to someone to have stuff done, so regular wear items get lost in the shuffle.

At least this summer hasn't been nearly as nasty as last summer. We had something like 12 days over 100° and 20 days just below 100° last summer.
