the KJ behaved today. :cool:   91* on the return trip from the junkyard and the engine temp needle stayed put and she never went into limp mode.  guess it really was time for a new fan clutch. :laugh:  the AC still doesn't work when , but one thing at a time.

been thinking about adding some decals to spice it up a bit.  maybe a military look with black star decal on the hood.  like this, except flat black on dark green.

Well, yours is the right color for military insignia.  I say go for it.

 

I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon showing mine some love.  The paint on it is in good shape (no rust anywhere) but it really needs to be clay-barred and refinished.  I like doing that about as much as going shoe shopping with my wife:laugh:, which means I've never done anything to it except wash it.  I pulled it in the garage and waxed the whole thing while watching football and drinking beer.  4 hours later, it looks alot better, but I need to take it someplace and have someone detail it.

I instantly added front/rear lockers, 37's and a crawl box to the KJ over the weekend, courtesy of the junkyard.  LOL.  Had to get a new head unit to replace my (failing) one, and the KJ I got it from had one of these on the fender.  Can't wait to see how much better it does on the trail now......:laugh:

but it only produces extra HP if you take it on a trail  :L:  

 

as for CRD news, I picked up a transmission skidplate off a junkyard crd on this latest trip north. :banana:  gotta clean it (had like an inch of sludge on it) and bend the one tab a bit, but it's rust free.  I wasn't even the first to find it in the yard, but I was the first to show up with a grinder to cut that last bolt that was spinning 'round and 'round. :D  battery powered grinder for the win!

Newp...she's a pavement queen.  In fact, I haven't even pulled it out of the garage since I waxed it last week, lol.  I was gonna take it to work today but it was raining all day, so I just ran the Focus. :laugh:

 

I still need to get under it and measure for the TC skid plate.  I'll probably do that tomorrow while I drain the trans pan and add new fluid (ala redneck transmission fluid flush).  My buddy down in the Tidewater area needs my help fixing a 96 XJ that has a vacuum leak...I need to roadtrip down there Sunday to fix that.  Its his son's vehicle who got into a fender bender and munched up the front end.  My guess is the vac canister behind the bumper got munched.  I'm gonna grab a new one from the junkyard and head down there with my tool bag.
