Always thought of limb raisers as overkill / for people with new Jeeps who wanted to protect their paint... until I came home from Potts with a few new windshield cracks thatíll cost me money if I want to pass Va inspection next month. Went ahead and added hood struts so that the hood will stop collapsing every time I bump the prop bar.

Is that hood strut thing a kit?

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.

It is. Very clever design by redline tuning but at $99 itís a bit overpriced. I just swallowed the cost by burying it in a much larger purchase. Whatís another $ 99 when you are already neck deep in paying for a steering system upgrade ? Lol - bad JEEP $ reasoning I know

Added new hood latches as the hood flutter was epic on the highway last week.

Got back from Boise and took the Scrambler in for reinspection. This guy laughed to find out I failed for the torn shifter boot. Saying the Jeeps have drain holes, so that makes no sense. I agreed, but said, whatever. It needed to be replaced anyway.

PSC steering system installed. Itís getting crowded under that hood! Had to relocate the evap solinoid in order to shoe horn the PSC reservoir into the space between the dual batteries and the high flow pump.

Pulled the old transfer case and found this surprise:

Iíll pick up the new seal tomorrow. I need to get the case in to measure for the new driveshaft.
