    Default Project 1775

    At about 5 a.m., 700 British troops, on a mission to capture Patriot leaders and seize a Patriot arsenal, march into Lexington to find 77 armed minutemen under Captain John Parker waiting for them on the town’s common green. British Major John Pitcairn ordered the outnumbered Patriots to disperse, and after a moment’s hesitation the Americans began to drift off the green. Suddenly, the “shot heard around the world” was fired from an undetermined gun, and a cloud of musket smoke soon covered the green. When the brief Battle of Lexington ended, eight Americans lay dead or dying and 10 others were wounded. Only one British soldier was injured, but the American Revolution had begun.
    Seeing as how I bought my new TJ on 4th of July weekend, it only seemed fitting to give it the name 1775, the year the American revolutionary war began

    Got the swaybar back on, highlift removed, radiator flushed and side rear windows replaced

    also spent some time just looking around underneath - not a lot of scratches or dents, doesnt look like it was abused much at all


    when I swap axles, it might take a bit more work to build up a new truss?

    Took the jeep over to michaels last night, got up to 65ish on the freeway (speedo tooth gear needs to be replaced, think its still set for stock tires)

    No wobble or issues going at speed. Only thing I noticed was the temp gauge got a bit over 210 with the AC on. It never got towards the red, but it was higher then i was used to. Might have climbed more if I was going up north and on the freeway for a couple of hours.

    So, need to chase that down, probably end up swapping radiators and adding a trans cooler. Im also guessing that the airflow isnt as much with the winch on the front bumper so that might have an affect on it

    Michael also noticed that the litedot led's on the back had several burned out bulbs. Kinda silly, LED's are supposed to last nearly 100,000 hours of being on. But talking with Bob, I guess litedot just makes a terrible product and this is a known issue with them. Gonna swap in some cheaper ones I found on amazon
