got the 784 injector swap done. noticed a 250-300 rpm drop on idle and lower rpm while freeway cruising, runs little butter now and a little quicker throttle response. no mpg gains that i can see. took her into a shop and had the alignment done, apparently my passenger front was rolling on the front side of the tire. they adjusted the caster and voila, amazing difference. just did the air filter and greased the front end today. time to go play! next step is the C-Rok front end stiffeners with the steering box plate.

I'm bad at updating things, new cooling system minus heater core, rear diff cover painted, fluids changed. Figured out I have an oil leak somewhere. Thanks to some of the members on here who helped me with some diagnosis. The next is sealing up the engine then start working on u joints and bearings and bushings etc etc..... this jeep thing is awesome lol
