    A little bit of work this past weekend:

    Transmission

    With 99300 miles I have neglected the auto transmission so after some hard shifting issues I decided to change the transmission fluid. After pulling the EVO Protek skids I tried to drop the trans pan with the exhaust crossover in place, BIG MISTAKE! After washing the fluid off my face (the tranny is slanted towards the back of the Jeep) I decided to loosen the exhaust bolts. With a little WD40 they came off surprisingly easy and the entire crossover easily pivoted out of the way and allowed for an clear filter / fluid change. There was a pretty thick layer of fine sludge on the magnet but nothing of major concern. Swapped the filter and buttoned it back up then added 3 quarts worth of ATF+4 back to the transmission. I'm leaving the ProTek skids off for now to make sure all is OK.

    So far with a couple of short trip and one round trip work commute the hard shift problem has stopped. The other problem I think might be related is the P0349 Camshaft sensor code I get (93+ degree days running 75-80 mph for 15 mins). I've replace the sensor already but now that the temps are up limp mode is back occasionally.

    Bling

    There are already enough threads on these but the only install tip I have is if you have a black battery,PULL IT! I was slowly grinding away at the battery case before I realized exactly what it was. Hopefully I stopped before I weakened the case bottom.

    Still adjusting and waiting for the shocks to settle in. The initial timing ring setting in the front now need to be moved down another 2 inches (almost to the bottom of the threads). The only clearance issue so far in my FANTASTIC MidArm RK rear lowers have the upper track bar bolt contacting the passenger rear bump stop. Looks like I can shave the bolt and possibly mive the bump stop forward a bit.

    Flip the bolt around.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
