Drove the Jeepster on the highway for the first time.  Does 60mph pretty good, but I wish I had a tach gauge. RPM's gotta be pretty high.

Replaced the driver side seat belt in my Scrambler today since it had a tendency to lock up and stay locked. Now it is nice and smooth.

But getting the mount out of the rollbar broke a t-45 bit. I am going to Home Depot to see if they warranty their hand tools. I just got this thing last October.

I think it is a Brownís dealership. And the Dulles Jeep is still open about 10 miles away in Leesburg.

Interesting and Fair Oaks isnt that far away.

I think I continue to use Saffard of Warrenton.

Thanks

Finished motor ml
Pints on one of my in-laws vehicles. I can have my garage back now to prep for the show and shine. Biggest job is putting the soft top on..... Which requires finding a missing piece of the softtop that I really hope is in a box somewhere....

The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

Joey to Mike- That's more like it! Never done.....just outta money at the moment.

Got tired of 2-stage tailgate entry and lack of clearance to see well out of the rear so Iím going to try this out for a while.  Pulled the spare tire / carrier off & threw the spare into the back. It fits perfectly under the Synergy basket and if I adjust things right the basket may even hold the spare down tightly enough that I wonít need to do anything else to secure it.

Adjusted the pinion angle after SYE/CV driveshaft install. I didnít have to adjust it much, but I went as far as the trackbar bracket would let me. I have a JKS angled bracket waiting. If I get bad vibes, Iíll throw the bracket on and potentially invert my rear shocks.

In addition, I took the doors off and put the mirrors on.
