I washed my Cj today for the first time since spring. The humongous walnut tree over my driveway has been dropping crap on it all week and I finally had enough...

Drove it back and forth to work, filled it with gas and changed the tail light bulb as water likes to get in there and fill the whole damn taillight assembly and blow the bulbs.

I am driving to the west side to meet up with some other syty guys, so I vacuumed and cleaned it up. Although I am sure it will rain at some point and ruin all my work.

I used to have to climb under my s10 and grease the throwout bearing through the inspection cover every other week to stop it from squealing.

CJ's don't have that problem.. They oil themselves quite nicely..

Yeah it failed at oiling the rod bearings also, hence no more s10.
