    Well ordered the Rhino rings and strap...
    I'm looking to get a beaver tail as well to keep in the jeep.
    Kinda sucks I have no front recovery points on the 02 but I'll manage

    installed new rear rotors and pads. Pulled DS rotor, emergency brake lining fell out on floor :(.

    looked on line at Advanced Auto, either I can't find it, or they show nothing.
    So I call them and get told, "please hold"
    This gives me enough time to search rock auto, 5 min later I hang up and order everything from shoes to hardware from Rock auto.

    I got my shoes at Advance I think and my hardware from Napa. Not that it matters.

    Today on the KJ: finished replacing the driver's side front axle seal

    You don't need D-Rings with the Beavertail

    Sent over some coin to JAB for a Silver 2-1/2" coilover kit. Added LCAs and LBJs to be thrown in the box too. Ole Gal just rolled 100k with original stock suspension, so thought I'd smooth her roll a bit. Day off Friday, so guess it's wrench time...

    You'll love the " JBA " coilovers
    Don't adjust shocks setting knobs until completely installed
    Then sit height
    I can give you some reference measurements to start off with
    It will ride way better than it did even with 1 mile on her
    Did you get the adjustable rear shocks as well ? Really adds to the rear as well

    I finally got my transmission oil changed...

    The shop that I had to take it to - to remove the plug - couldn't get it out with their snap-on extractor set. He had to heat it up with an electric heating element and then wack it with 3 different metal punches. It turned 1/8th of a turn every wack for nine threads before it came out...

    The oil change took 20 minutes - super easy to do. There is anti-seize compound on the new plug now so hopefully in 50-60k miles when I do this again, it will come off just a tad easier.

    and you know what the best part of today is?? I noticed a small coolant leak... it never ends...
