    Driving it to work.. still trying to figure out what is going on with this pop in the front end... I know it's related to the Lokka... but it hasn't done it at all, to include on the drive down from DE... just started about a month ago... So guess I'll have to scrape together some cash, and take it by the shop to get them to take a look at it and hopefully it'll be an easy fix... Got to try to figure it out quickly, as I'll most likely be taking the XJ 3.5hrs south to GA for my first UTA weekend, as I finally got everything done and lined up to get back into the military, while only the USAF Reserve, it's better than nothing, gets me back to working on aircraft, and my retirement... and gets my foot in the door to try and get a full time position either as a civilian working in the unit, or full time reservist... So hopefully she makes the trip there and back safely.... Made it 13hrs down to NC from DE, so should be good... With having quite a few small things, that I can't work on where I live... it kills me every time I drive it... and I keep thinking about letting it go, and picking up either a 00+ GC or a Commander to have... but as I don't really need a comfy family car anymore (since I traded my Ram in on the WRX (once I get the brakes done on it, I'll be able to drive it again)... but I know if I do let it go, and get a GC or Commander, I'll regret it and want to get another play toy... so might as well just keep her and work on her as I can, and still keep the HOA happy...

    decided to add secondary leaf spring with half wrap for my rear to:
    - decrease axle wrap,
    - prevent leaf sliding if primary leaf broke (had once, last year)

    found a rubber hose fault at top of the evap canister, cut at good point and connected back. It seems to going to fuel tank. My snake in fuel tank stopped hissing long time ago, hoped to hiss again after reconnecting this hose but still quiet there.






    Also replaced ignition coil with NGK one, now she idling more stable and felt a some increase in skinny pedal response.

    EDIT: do I need a reset the PCM?

    Once again NOT driving my 93 2 door.
    Drove it for 3 days and lost the clutch master cylinder. It was the only part of the clutch system that wasn't new.
    Replaced it and got about 15' before the new slave cylinder with less than 150 miles started puking.
    Long story short I found out I have too much crankshaft end play and pulled the engine yesterday. Going to replace the thrust bearing, maybe all the main bearings and hopefully everything else is good, otherwise....

    knock knock! anybody home?

    With cool weather coming, that means wheeling season is here. Headed to Disney, OK in 2 weeks so today went to check out the jeep and get her ready for some fun. Not sure what's drawing power down with everything off, even CB unplugged, but I've got a Bosch AGM that was new in May that's deader than Elvis. Looking at battery cut off switches while i charge up the battery. Looked at a few solar chargers as well. not sure what i'm going to do yet.

    Also gave the Dana 44s a gander to see what all is there and what's not. they came off a waggy so setup for leafs. Did notice a lot rust pitting on the knuckles and tubes so these are gonna need some serious work with wire wheel and flap disc. But everything's there and will start tearing them down soon.

    yall do any wheeling this summer?

    Unfortunately, no due to the Jeep needing a new engine. Been getting the kids TJ going with a 5.2L V8. Finally got it positioned like I want it. Will post pics after weekend

    battery dead was DEAD. got a Champion AGM replaced for free, same 4 year full replacement warranty. also bought a 12V switch so I can interrupt the circuit when i'ts gonna be parked for a bit. the solar charger was a cool idea, but I can see the neighborhood kids messing with it.
