I've had Hella lights on every Jeep for 30 years and finally re-installed them on the LJ!



I wonder which are better LED 7in headlights or Hella 7 inch round headlights with a 55/100 watt bulb???

Cleaned my pistons.  Wait, that kind of sounded odd.

When do you think you will have the engine ready for install?

As soon as I can get the cylinders honed and reassembled.  So late June I guess based on this COVID crap

Would have sounded more odd if you had said you were cleaning your exhaust!   :lol

All six front bumper torx bolts on the LJ removed without cutting, drilling or welding. I consider it a victory no matter the simplicity.  :wrench

That is a win for sure. When I installed my new suspension last summer on the LJ, I was shocked I got all 4 rear upper shock bolts out without any drama. It was crazy.

Decided to give the ORI guys a try in ordering the last parts for the JKU. They were the same price as online, so I placed the order.
New DV8 track bar, TF track bar bracket, and Flash Cal in route. Almost time to get this show on the road :wrench

Felt the same way when I replaced most of my suspension components as well. Every flag nut saved, all in good shape and able to re-use. The toughest removal by far on mine was the factory torx bolt of the rear track bar. That one took days. Finally removing that bolt literally made my week. #jeeplife

I gave up on that trackbar bolt and just got rid of the axle :D

I may have been getting rid of it anyways, but it's a good way to express my frustration with that bolt

Took advantage of warmer temps to pain my TJ Rubicon flares back to black. Hopefully I can get them on the weekend.
