Just finished cleaning up the garage and pulled my 2000 XJ into there for the time being. Not sure when I will get started working on it, or how long it will take me……but it’a going to be in the garage for a while so I can fix a number of issues with it. Maybe even upgrade a few parts at the same time 😉
Hopefully I can get it out of the garage and back on the trails sometime this year….but we’ll see….
Back in the fall, I ended up replacing two of the tires on my Jeep because they were in bad shape. I never did get around to replacing the other two, but the time has finally come. I just received my two new Maxxis Bighorns and will hopefully get them installed next week after my Kokopelli trip.
As you can see, it is time!
If you remember, a few weeks ago I broke a leaf spring in Moab on the White Rim Trail and had to replace it with a new one. With the new spring and the old saggy spring my Jeep has been a little crooked. I finally got sick of it and ended up ordering another new spring from Jason at JeepinOutfitters.
The leaf spring showed up today at my office. After a dentists appointment after work, I managed to get the new spring installed in about an hour. Now my Jeep is pretty much level again 🙂
New and old spring
My new leaf spring did show up today…
..and I got it installed after work. Now that side of the Jeep sits a little higher than the other. We’ll see if I can break the new spring in this weekend in Moab 😉 I may have to buy another new spring to even things out in the next few weeks, but I guess I’ll see what happens…
According to UPS, my new leaf spring is supposed to be here tomorrow. So to prepare, I went ahead and pulled out the old one after work today…
