What did you do to your Jeep today?

This is a wildly successful thread on another forum I'm on, so I thought I might as well start it here.

Today I traced down a loud squeling coming from the engine that I determined was a result of a cheap belt. I determined it was the belt by spraying the grooves of the belt with WD40 while the engine was running. If the squeling is the belt, the sqeeling will stop when you spray it.

Next I found a location to install my catch can. To do so I had to cut two bolts and trim the head of one of them. For those that have removed your stock CAI, there is a bracket just waiting to be put to work.

Here's some photos for the hell of it. I know it's not the prettiest thing you've ever seen, but it functions nicely.

Man I'm glad you got it figured.All I did was look at it while it was under the carport when I went to work.Until I figure out a way to keep water out of the Venom hood vents,it will stay parked in the rain =(.Catch can looks good,but why not on the driver side of the head/block?

I mounted it there because there's plenty of clearance for me to easily remove the bottom. This area is wide open and needed to be put to use.
