I also got the rear main seal replaced while I had the front apart.

Lets see... For the disney trip, I need to install the CB and antenna, replace tranny filter, driving and rock lites, reglue the headliner, install the trailer brake controller,and try and figure out front tow hooks. Plus a couple things I'm forgetting.

When I was wheeling the red XJ, I learned that the bumper looks great, but the approach angle is not very good, and the tired tires rub at full flex

Its been a while since I updated this post. I've been "rat"-holing some parts. I still have the tranny filter, CB and rock lites, rear shackles to install. I also have a front locker, steering brace, xfercase skid, SYE to install, and a XRC front bumper on order. Too many parts, not enough install time :(

Yep.... Its my daily driver right now, so shouldn't be apart or anything. But, that is also the reason that its taking a while to get stuff done on it.

I did get the CB done tonight though... :D

Thanks for the offer. My big problem is its hard to plan a work day with work and needing to work on the property when the weather is nice. I need a cold, rainy weekend or two...
