What did you do to your Jeep today?

5,175 posts in this topic

Did you know that your front door will hold 3 gallons of water and your rear door 2 gallons when you clog the drain holes with mud?  Does anyone else even know the location of their door drain holes?  Did anyone else know that there's a hole in the door near the latch that will let you hose off the inside of the door and that the door can hold copious amounts of mud too?

Manual replacement for my electronic swaybar disconnect. I pushed the button once 3 years ago and it never locked back in.

I pulled the motor from mine a few years ago BEFORE it could short out and cause problems. (Around the time Nascar fought with the dealership before walking into their shop and cutting his out ADA (against dealership advice)). I installed that EVO Disconnect as well. Just keep a wrench handy as sometimes it's hard to turn it initially and needs a little help.

Finally got around to replacing the faulty turn signal stick. Stops the random interior light coming on/off over bumps problem.

I packed mine with some waterproof grease and maintain every 3 ish years.  All good.

Still wrapped in a plastic bag or did you find another solution?

Did you have to bleed the ABS pump?  I paid the dealership to do mine because I understand that requires a special StarScan procedure.

Your not opening the brake system, so there is no need to bleed the brakes.

I still need to get mine bleed. She stops well but the pedal is a little soft.

Did some front end maintenance and greasing. Installed an Evo electronic sway bar delete and found out the gears and the mechanical side are also shot. Think I am going to just swap the entire sway bar with a stock non-rubicon one and just unbolt the links when wheeling. I always unbolt anyway, so no realreason to bother withrebuilding the gears.

Yes, it was filledwith water.

Rebuilt the solenoids on my winch again. Shorted out when I pulled it back in. What a piece of shit.   Cleaned the connections for my front locker too, which didn't get to engage. Not a very successful day.

Installed the mobile gmrs radio. Back to a stealth install. So easy to put here, especially with the cigarette outlet already in the console. Antenna came with plenty of cable to reach from the tailgate mount. Taking advantage of the external speaker I never took out of the roll bar padding.

For the part that the e-disconnect attaches, packed with whatever grease is used for electrical, wrapped in cling wrap, and then duct tape.

Crawler concepts.

Maybe second guessing myself but they'll be fine. A lot of places for mud build up.
