    Got a call from the shop today:

    Them: "I have good news and I have bad news"
    Me: "Let's hear it"
    Them: "The good news is that your drive shaft is ok. The bad news is your Ox locker grenaded completely"
    Me: "Uh... well... I guess that would explain the weird noise"
    Them: "Uh..... yes, yes it would"

    Well, that would explain the clicking noise

    Time for an update, I can't believe how time flies!

    I have an Iron Rock off road 7 inch lift long arm kit on the way, including new Bilstein shocks. The front diff was, surprisingly, repairable and now locks and seems to work. So, with a little bit of luck, I'll be coming to Moab with the new suspension all installed and ready to test.

    I will be needing new drive shafts to accommodate the lift, and very likely also a SYE.

    Makes changing the fluids and filters seem like nothing.

    Well, the long arm kit is on.

    Remaining work:
    Limit strap in the front
    Belly skid
    Fender flares

    I'll see if I can find some dirt to play in tomorrow to test out the new setup. So far, having driven the Jeep a bit around town, there's huge difference between the old "frankenstein" suspension and the new Iron Rock stuff. But then again: New geometry, new bushings, new shocks and springs SHOULD make a difference.

    Oh, and, the shop had to re-route the exhaust pipe so they needed to put a new muffler on. Turned out all they had was a Magnaflow. Hate it when that happens

    Got a small amount of dirt on the Jeep today. Got it all cleaned up too.

    After the trip to the spa, the Jeep decided to start misfiring on one cylinder. I never found the bad one, but the problem is gone again.... at least for now.

    Couple of pictures:


    How she sits now, definitely taller


    Front suspension close up


    Rear suspension





    Double!
    Seems to be spraying a bit of fluid, gotta get that looked at

    Sold my Jeep this weekend. Little girl named Marie bought it. 5' 100 pound girl said she likes to go mudding. Runs with the military Jeepers out of Ft Hood. I think it went to a great home. 2004 LJ 4.0L lift, 35" tires, rocker panel protection, off road lights, CB, steel bumpers, etc.

    Yes. It was a cool looking ride. Never drove it much though. JJ wouldn’t drive it, didn’t even like riding in it. Just one more thing for me to maintain that I didn’t have time for.
