    Overall the top did pretty good. I found out the passenger window frame is busted and it just so happened that the passenger side seat was pretty wet. Other than that everything else was dry! I was pretty shocked the entire inside wasn't soaked...I dont even have drain plugs!

    Did a little work to the steering, also sent the sway bar to get sand blasted. I kinda like the bronze and black combo.

    Whats up yall, as you know it got freaking cold in Texas and to no surprise my heater didnt work. I flushed to coolant and put a thermostat IN. Yes, there was no thermostat in the Jeep. lol Now the heat works great. The little Jeep gets nice and toasty. I actually had to turn it down. On the down side the heat doesnt come out of the actual vents. Just the floor and the defrost. I have read a few things on here about fixes but was hoping hear from yall. Let me know what yall think I can fix to get the heat coming out of the vents. Thanks.

    Probably need to check the blend doors or whether the duct is blocked /disconnected. However having ventilation to the floor+defroster is a win.

    San Antonio the beautiful city that has encroached the once free ranges of the Alamo. "Remember the Alamo" sort of fits the YJ which is the closest thing to the CJ.

    You're telling me, this city is growing out of control. Most of the new comers dont keep our good Texas values in mind neither. Oh well what can you do.

    Whats going on Yall?! Sorry I have been gone for some time. Things have been crazy on my end. I had a quick question in regards to fuel pressure. Im sure its been discussed before but I just wan to be sure. So, in my 1995 2.5L 5speed I am getting am increasing amount of hesitations when giving her the juice. Especially in 1st and 2nd. I already replaced the mismatched fuel injectors along with the fuel filter.

    Im thinking my next step my be the fuel pump and the fuel pressure regulator. Lastly, I am finding conflicting information in regards to what the fuel pressure should be coming from the fuel pump.

    Thanks for yalls input and I hope everyone is doing well. If yall have some time check out the video I did where me and buddy Raptor line the interior of his JK. YouTube sxs texan.
