I have no idea why most of these are uploading upside down, but yal get the idea. I feel like everything you do is a reflection of your character, i know that i did the best i could with the tools i had available. I could have done a lot more with a media blaster at my disposal, but this will do for another 340k miles.

One more thing to check off the long list

Since I rebuilt the box I decided I want to replace the power steering pump and pulley. They are the originals from 99 so figure I'd use my employee discount and get some duralast goodies. Currently cleaning up hoses, got a new return hose, the pressure lone looks good still but I may replace it too. Tomorrow that part of the jeep should be all buttoned up minus fluid since I have yet to fire the motor, I don't want to forget to bleed the system

Honestly I am having a hell of a time rebuilding my steering box. I am giving myself another week to get it before I send it to be done by a shop. Damn ball bearings from hell...

Plus side, no more miss matched spare tire/rim. Got tired of running 16" rims and a 15" spare, and I wanted the ability to rotate spare in on reparations. So found a deal in a local off road club for four more icon rims. $100...

The guy was asking $150 I asked what's the lowest he could go, he said $75 so I gave him $100 for being cool about it.

Side note, got the steering box back in finally, now on to dropping the fuel tank

If you take it off, make it look better than it was before putting it back on.
