    Default Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Replaced all the steering linkage plus a Monroe steering damper that had less than 15k miles on it but was leaking all over and had a dead spot, used a Drag link from a 30,000 mile TJ but the guy who gave me the linkage bashed the still good TREs out with a hammer so the threads were all mushroomed and deformed on the tie rod.

    So since I needed the rod ends same day and NAPA was closed I bit the bullet and went to Autozone which had one Duralast Gold TRE but not the other side so I went to Orileys and got their only avaliable one for the other side which was their house brand. We'll see how long they last. The steering damper I had picked up already before starting the job and just grabbed it from Napa.

    Dropped in a salvaged efan from a 2000 into my 95, the one in my 95 had a broken frame. Replaced the old pin style front wiper arms with 97+ j hook style wiper arms and replaced all 3 wipers at the same time. Also went ahead and adjusted my driver's side door pin in just a hair so the door would fully seal in the rear.

    rear disc brake conversion is done, donor was ZJ and feels much better braking. MC and brake booster previously upgraded with WJ ones. and replaced leaky steering gear pinion shaft seals.
