    Hey, I daily drive the TJ when the weather is nice!

    I wouldn't call it a "hardcore crawler", more like "purpose-built" lol.

    My ZJ with something like a 2" lift on 30's also has a Magnum V8 and it's not much better. Biggest problem is I live .6 miles from work so I rarely do any highway driving.

    I ordered what I thought was the Thailand made oil filter from Amazon... got a Japan 90915-30002 instead! Win.


    Decided to dig into my turn signals so I cut up the spare housing I had. I cut and bent some poly-carbonate to make a shallow housing. The plan is to mount an LED turn signal to the poly-carbonate.



    Without the protective paper... I'll spray the inside with silver once I RTV everything together.



    Sloppy side... turns out I didn't need to cut out as much as I thought. Oh well... should work when finished.

    Made the other stubby turn signal housing with more overlap than the first. I ordered some simple LED turn signals from Amazon and they should get here late this week.

    I made more progress on my turn signal housings.

    I cut a hole for the wires to pass through




    Here's what the LED turn signals look like mounted




    Then I RTV'd everything together to seal them up in the rear







    Here's a test fit:

    Thanks Bob! They have 1 wheeling trip and one car wash under their belt. Not water intrusion. I'm happy with that.

    I made more progress on the Cruiser this weekend. After installing my PDI intercooler with the integrated transmission cooler, my front grill didn't fit quite right. My relocated horns and the transmission cooler lines touched my grill and made it stick out in the middle. I had to zip tie it to hold it on because of this interference. I ground down the grill with a dremel and made clearance this weekend. It's not held on with screws and no zip ties!


    You can see how it was before (kind of) here. This middle of the grill stuck out





    Here's the after







    I need to reapply my plastidip but you can see the ground down areas and the transmission cooler lines here





    It's not beautiful, but at least it works. When I get my new grill, I'll copy where I ground this one. But, I'll use a die grinder or something with a larger radius to make the work cleaner.

    I got replacement U-Joints for my front driveshaft, from Cruiser Outfitters. Now, I just need the time to pull the driveshaft and have the u-joints replaced.

    Did a differential drain/refill yesterday. I used the opportunity to switch the standard drain/fill plugs for the Wits End allen key setup.



    Here's why allen keys are handy in the drain. I had to use a hammer and chisel to clean that up a bit.



    New drain plug did't require a socket on the outside, so clearance was much easier.



    Also, for about a month now, my stereo head unit has been broken... putting out no sound. After trouble shooting a bit and talking with Pioneer, it sounded like the integrated circuit within the deck might be bad. Repair would have cost as much as I purchased the deck for so, despite being a fix-it type guy, I bought a new deck. I got a Kenwood ddx 8905s for a decent price. One cool feature the new deck has is Android Auto (also has Apple car play). Has anyone used Android auto much? I like that I can display Google maps on my screen now. But, other than that, I haven't found anything terribly impressive about it. (maybe that's because I'm not really into all the voice activated stuff?)

    Here's my maps setup now... it is nicer than looking at a phone
