I taught my oldest how to do an oil change on the GMC and the XJ.  Did more trimming on the front fenders to clear the Rubicon take-offs.

The black trim is a lot nicer looking.  Mine is all paint matched, and I can't stand it.

Yesterday I washed and "conditioned" the soft top and washed the jeep which really just exposed how badly the hood needs to be repainted, lol.

Agreed.  It’s all fading though.  I need to repaint everything.

Rotated the tires in my driveway.  What a pain in the A$$.  Also greased everything on the bottom.

What made it a PIA? I was planning on doing my own driveway tire rotations to save some money.

Not enough jack stands?  I loosen the lugs on all five, lift it on all four corners, play roundabout with all 5, then hand tighten all lugs, drop all four corners and then tighten all down. Takes a little time, but not so much of a PITA. I do need to get 2 more taller jack stands. I have four that are 3 tons and 2 6 tons. 2 more of the 6 ton jacks would make me feel better

Heavy - I'm getting old.  Jacking it all up with jack stands, dragging the jack around.  Lifting them at 90lbs to line up the studs.  Taking the stands back out, dragging it all back to the garage again.  Simple, just tiring (and it was hot and humid at the time).

Edit:  My driveway is angled also so it has to be chocked and moved around as I go.

I hear you. Especially about the weight. And a sloped driveway?  Heck no. I would find a parking lot or the street at the base of my driveway.

replaced the transmission pan gasket and filter (#4 on the list). Not hard but sure was messy. I was surprised at how many holes were were threaded to accept the filter torx screws. it took me longer than I'd like to admit to figure out which were the correct ones. I was glad to be able to do it without having to remove the skid plate.

1. replace a/c compressor, dryer and a/c liquid line. evacuate and recharge system.
2. replace radiator and thermostat (flush cooling system)
3. replace drive belt, tensioner & idler pulley
4. replace transmission pan gasket & filter
5. replace valve cover gasket
6. replace tie rod ends, drag links, and sway bar links (requires sub alignment)
7. replace rear shocks
8. replace two downstream oxygen sensors

Yesterday installed front bump stops, Rockhard engine skid, and diagnosed and corrected why the damn thing wouldn’t start. Today confirmed my heater core has a leak.

Installed heater core, thermostat, flushed and replaced all the coolant. Tomorrow I'll replace the coolant temp sensor. I've had enough for one day.
