    I just wrote a quick guide on how to upload photos - How to upload photos to Jeepz.com

    Take a look at it and reply to the thread if you have any problems. If I had to guess, I'd bet that the little window that pops up (i.e. the popup window) is being blocked by your browser.

    going to get the tj this weekend. meeting my son in Lubbock or Amarillo and he is taking the Mazda back with him and we are taking the tj home with us. he said he cannot afford to drive it on e3 pay in the winter. i told him that is fine, we will swap back when summer gets here.


    plus, i found a two inch lift for cheap because a local guy swapped to a four inch

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    holy cow. i don't what happened but this jeep is in terrible shape now. its going to take some work to get it back to a nice jeep. something is wrong in the driveline now, bad u-joint or bent drive shaft, i don't know yet. it vibrates from 5 mph up to highway speeds. it was a long long drive from lubbock back to corpus with it vibrating so bad you couldn't use the mirrors. i found that at 72mph it vibrated to least so that is what i drove at to make the 10 hour drive. it got between 13 and 16 mpg depending on using overdrive and if there was a headwind.

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    it wasn't vibrating when he took it after christmas though. i drove it all over before he took it and everything was fine. i am going to start easy and work back though. check the u-joints and the driveshafts first. since the transmission cross member has a big bend in it now, maybe he also hit the driveshaft on whatever they were going over.

    i tried to look at the wheels to see if they were spinning true and i didn't see any issues but i could only see the back. i think its related to the back though because when we would go through small dips in the road and the back springs would compress a little, the vibes got worse. it made me think of when a lift is put on but the trans and rear diff aren't lined up properly and you need to shim the back and lower the transmission crossmember.

    i will start messing with it sometime. i have to move the washer and dryer from the front house to the garage and cap all the lines going to the house because we are knocking it down to put another one up. i imagine it will be slow going on the jeep

    Installed a set of next venture skid plates on my 392. Needed some persuasion and had one wrong part, but not too bad so far. Have to see how bad the squeaks and rattles are.

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Got two new 1310 spicer u-joints to put on. But, for some dumb reason I didn't block the wheels when I backed the jeep onto the ramps so when I asked my son to pull the ebrake, since the trans was disconnected, the jeep rolled off the ramps and crushed me under the fuel tank skid plate. I was on my back, kind of leaning left when it started to roll.
    so I tried to yank myself out of the way of the diff and was on my left side when the jeep came down and pushed my shoulders together.

    The emergency room said unbelievably nothing is broken but since it's a crush injury, tomorrow is going to be really bad, pain wise.

    I thought my left collar bone and shoulder snapped because of the horrible noise it made. It sounded like when a dog is chewing chicken bones, that snapping sound. But, luckily nothing broke

    So, moral of the story. Put the wheel chocks in place. Don't forget or get complacent and think nothing will happen. This could have been bad with broken shoulder and collar bone probably being the least of the bad things
