This will be a great thread that we can keep going. That way we can keep up with the small day to day tinkering of our members.

nothing special, just something to keep this going, i finally figured out that i have the 8.25 ... oh and i think i fixed the little tube that supplies the rear wiper with washer fluid so no more squirting the car behind me (as much fun as that was)

I'm a 9 to 5er, so my work really has to wait until this weekend. My plans are to install a new 41 tooth speedo gear. Tired of going 65 mph and speedo buried past 85. I just had 4.88s and a lock-rite installed. The guy that owned it before me put a new speedo gear in for 33s and stock gearing, so that is why it is so whacked.

I have a Renix era XJ and today I replaced the plastic football tank in the coolant system. I put an aluminum tank with a real radiator cap. Still have to find a hose for the neck overflow.

more just what I found out today ... there's a wrecker/dealer/aftermarket supplier pretty close to me that only has jeep stuff. I'm sure that if any of you are from the Toronto area that you already know it, Just Jeeps, and if anyone from around me has first hand experience dealing with them I'd like to know how they are.
