Tightened the wheel bearings today. Still looked good so I just left the ones that were in there.

Got the stumbling fixed (I believe) so now I just need to get the idle right, and it seems the o2 heater isn't getting enough power according to my REM so I need to trace some wires and clean some connections probably. Got the stuff for a rear sway bar if I ever get some free time to open up the brackets for the axle and bolt it into the truck. In the write up I saw he used extended links, but I think his truck is lifted so on hoping the shorter links will work with my truck at stockish height.

Got a new o2 sensor for it and got the exhaust redone. The cheap manifold I ordered leaks worse than the old one that I replaced, but the rest of the exhaust is nice mandrel bent, leak free and actually the right size.

Thrush welded since it looked like it would hold up well and it's really cheap. It sounds pretty good and I can barely hear it cruising down the highway.

I did. I wish I took some pictures of the exhaust on the lift, but I'll take some sometime.

I autocrossed the Comanche yesterday for fun. I asked the guys if I could just do one quick run since I had to get some school work done. Messing around riding 3 wide I got a 56.3 +1 which wasn't too bad since my friend got a 53.1 in his miata with 4 runs to figure the track out. Now I've got the handling bug again and want to make this thing corner more level. I also read something about swapping in a zj steering box for a quicker steering ratio, so I may look into that.
