Took all the trash out of the Jeepster. It has been used as storage space lately.

I'm driving over bumps in the road trying to locate a rattle.  I'm thinking it may be my rear sway bar link.  Ugh!  Apartment life sucks!  ROTFL

Installed a set of XG Cargo Gama storage bags that velcro mount to a bar that goes on the roll bar using an existing top bolt and u clamp around the bottom post.

Not at all.  Actually hold quite a bit of gear and quick detach if you want to  pull them out.

Was coming back from our herding lesson on I66E and a state trooper was running radar in the median between the FFX/PWC line and Rt 29.  I was in the center lane and I got a really dirty look from the old trooper. I guess I was just under 73mph. Now I am not sure how Trooper Sparky was going to hustle back to his car and get buckled in and come after me and catch me before I took the exit for 29E those Tauruses just aint that fast. Yeah I did consider trying to outrun him since I could have lost by diving into the shopping center right off Rt 29. Bought back thoughts of the glory days outrunning FCPD on the back roads of Clifton and Burke in various VWs and my old 3 series track day car.

Hey its a holiday weekend and I knew the revenue agents were out so I was watching my speed and I know where they run radar on I66E. Just hope the poor old guy didn't have to sprint to his car to give chase since he may had to medevaced to FFX hospital.

Burned he serpentine belt off this morning in a matter of seconds.  Now I'm relegated to using our minivan.  It's as if the pulley is tight against the housing.  Not sure what really happened until I pull it off.  I parked it working fine, went on vacation until this morning, and now I need a new belt and probably a new alt.  Just love Jeep life.....

Installed my 36-tooth speedo gear this morning, and also diagnosing a clunking noise I'm hearing when coming off throttle.  Trans mount is new and motor mounts are good, as are the front U-joints.  It's slight, but there does seem to be some play in the likely OE rear driveshaft U-joints.  Being as they are the originals, I'm having a heck of a time knocking the old ones out.

Anyone in the Reston area have a standalone press that I could borrow?  If not, a large vise would probably work.  Hammering away on two blocks of wood on my floor isn't giving me the power I need...

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

A large socket under around 1.25” and one on top approx 1/2”dr x3/4” will create a press. Smash it on concrete with a BFH.

This method has worked for me as well. At home or on the trails. Of course I used the bench and vice at Rausch last year.

Tuesday night I hit a raised manhole and the rear wheel came off the ground a little. Then I heard a loud clunk when it landed and a horrible grinding noise as the wheel rotated all the way home. Took the drum off to see the adjusting screw at the top and the clip that rests against it to adjust the screw was ground to crap. So I used the spare parts I had from April to get myself going and purchased a full set of parts (left and right) to swap out the screw this weekend.

And then I started researching disc brake conversions.

LOL, that's why I told you I always have a spare set on hand. It's always something Dain.  Cheers

For what the Disc conversion costs, I would consider getting a replacement D44 with discs already on it. No need to waste even more $ on a AMC20's weak axle housing. With the costs of gears, locker, shafts, and a disc conversion you are at the price of a D44.
