+1 - looks great!
Let me know how the ATM's treat you - I've heard good things about them, and the TB needs new shoes soon.
Installed some spacers behind the top two mounting points of the spare carrier cradle so that the upwards-swinging rear window clears the tire. Works well. Probably will switch out massive stack of washers with rubber bushings sometime soon so the nuts don't work their way loose as quickly.
I've been trying to diagnose a rear wiper motor issue (doesn't work at all), so I swapped out the motor with a good one, still cooked. Argh - suspecting the switch which was already on order because of flickering interior lights. I guess electrical problems are a Jeep specialty.
I also had it e-tested and it passed...which surprised me since I have 2 codes that reoccur: EVAP solenoid and slow O2 code. Good for me though.
Replaced another front DS CV. Damn those things wear out too quickly ...I basically rebuild it every fall/winter. Plus they are way too fiddly. Allen key heads on the CV/TC end, and 8mm hex heads for other. There was a ton of play in the cv side, lots of rattling/chinging when moved by hand - it was just about to get 'sticky'.
With the replacement parts at only ~$55 a year, doesn't make sense going to a custom DS does it???? One of my most disliked regular wear parts on it.
I plan to install the CB antenna (4' firestick) some time this winter, but a bit wary of the load on the mounting surface as I don't have a solid piece (solid bumper) to attach it to. I thought of installing it on some of the thicker layered sheet metal just in between the driver's door and the front wheel (lower down), but I worry that the SWR will be wacked out with half of the 4 ft antenna aligned with the side of the body. About 2.5' would be above the hood opposite the radio antenna. Or, maybe I should wait and install it on the homebrew bumper...
