    It was like trying to paint a mud hole , It took us 5 hours of grinding and brushing to get all crud off!


    Casey brought us 4 huge steaks, how awesome. Casey,s meat is huge, probably sweeter than phillips.

    You're not supposed to wash underneath unless you're getting ready to work on it.

    How do you know what to do when you're told to keep the dirty side down?

    Well got a little further tonight. @adamk got the ring gear on the carrier. While I cut the old brackets off the other side. Found out the drivers side tube had been replaced at one point. Passenger tube is 1/2" wall while the driver is 3/8" Also found out the pinion races had spun, bores look to be ok but definitely gonna need a little green lock tite.

    @Joe J. came over last night and we got a lot accomplished. Gears are set up, covers on, brackets tacked in place and lowers tacked together, plus we killed a lot of Corona.

    Picked up some new knuckles today from @amcjeepman Should get the ram mount fabricated in the next couple of days. Hoping the track bar and upper link will clear everything in their way.

    O No! He's at it again. First you take your 1/2 plate, that's laying around, mark & drill 5 9/16" holes. Started with a small hole & worked my way up. Took a lot of damn Batteries! Now I need a bracket, which necessitated a spacer between 2 1&1/2"sq. tubes. Hey, use what you got! Broke out the Hobart 175, this time. Don't worry, this will be lightly loaded, when used, & it's Not for the Edger!:lol:

    Replaced both of the hubs. In doing so I found the u-joint on the driver side in this condition. The passenger side is old (probably original, like this one, 158K miles), but is still functioning. Was going to change it, but while assembling the driver side I screwed up the new u-joint meant for that side, smh. I'll take care of it soon, but had to get it on the road today.
    Also, being the dummy I am, I accidentally ordered the wrong hubs (they changed mid-99, mine was built 01/99). I ordered the older style instead of the newer style. Luckily I was able to rob the brake rotors off the ZJ to make them work. I don't feel like spending the $80 to get new rotors for the ZJ, so does anyone by chance have a decent set of rotors from a 90-98 Dana 30 in WNC? Not asking for free, I'll pay, just need cheaper.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    2 questions.

    1. Why use a battery drill when you have a drill press in one of the photos?

    2. What is it exactly?

    Fooled you, huh? That's the reason, I took the pic, with the drill press, in the background. Figured it would come off as a joke! I made up a new mount bracket, for a pick-up swing hoist. Once I get it completed & mounted, I'll snap a picture.

    Went back to my old routine of 5:00am waking up to work on the Jeep while it's cool enough to.

    Swapped out my Wrangler's battery that's been dead since Nov. Still under warranty. :)

    Flushed the coolant.

    Looked at all the other odds an ends I need to do. But first, cross my fingers and get it inspected. Second, looking into my steering linkage. I'd forgotten how scary it'd become until I swerved back and forth across the road on a test run. Squirrely is putting it mildly. :)

    Moved it the hell out the way so I can start on my canopy/carport build. I've been collecting parts for a while. Today, I scooped the structural poles for all four corners, concrete, welding rods and new pair of post hole diggers. Time to bust it out.

    3" rectangle 3/8" wall verticals
    2x3" 3/16" angle overhead runners
    Galvanized commercial tin.

    I'm tired of sitting in wet Corbeaus! IMG_20190629_101335953_HDR.jpg

    Got a full rear brake rebuild kit for me Chrysler 8.25 but I was hoping the kit came with new hardware like the e brake cables and new tiny metal pieces.

    Any advice before I start this next weekend? [​IMG]

    Keep one side together so you can reference it when assembling.
