For some reason, I think your truck looks better with the regular tail gate on it.

Try getting some White Lithium Grease for the calipers. Plus Penetrating oil.

replaced the uniballs, upper arm bushings, and front brake lines today. uniballs were super tough to get out. sam at 3B racing helped me out with his press since he was around the shop anyway. while the truck was pissing me off the CJ got some dd attention which i loved as usual. one of the uniballs required some heat to be pressed out. this melted the misalignments, not a great thing to have happen on a saturday afternoon when your truck needs to get you to work on monday morning. a run up to ruffstuff saved the day, but i should have bought 2! thought only one misalignment had mushroomed but turns out the bottom one started to collapse on the inside as well. my dad and i reamed it out to make it work till it can be replaced hopefully this week. after being heated up and drilled out itll break eventually. replaced the front lines with steel braided ones.

few pics, camera was dead so crappy cell pics is all i took lol.










pep boys said they couldnt align my truck due to their alignment guy not coming in, then some toothess dude down the street told me to come back on moday, f that, so firestone was having a sale. $150 for lifetime alignments on one vehicle. i figured that the second time i need one it will pay for itself, so twas worth it.

Every few months?! That sucks. I've done an alignment 3 times in the 8.5 years I've owned the truck
