well I found out that I am going to have to rebuild Eagle Eyes motor sometime in the next few months as she has started to blow white smoke out the exhaust while under throttle (yay me), other than that she still runs really well.

well I scored a skid plate today for Eagle Eyes and while I was trying to find some u-bolts that would work to hold it on I found out that one of my swaybar bushings was M.I.A. so I decided that rather than wait for some new ones to be shipped to me I would just buy one of the poly-urethane sets that the parts store had sitting on the shelf, they fit quite well but I don't know how they will perform till tomorrow. here is what the bushing and it's housing

here is the skid plate after a good cleaning


and here is the pile of gunk that I cleaned off it.

I usually scrape them onto an old tarp. Keeps the greasy guck off the driveway!

it's been awhile since I posted in this post. during my absence from the forum I have replaced the entire rear axle in eagle eyes as well as the steering box and rear hatch seal as well as rebuilding the steering column as well as rebuilding the steering column. I have also replaced my steering wheel with a Jeep sport wheel, as well as the transmission mount.

yeah I'm still around but I only have Eagle Eyes now.  The rest of my cars were sold by my family without my permission and they probably would have sold Eagle Eyes too if they hadn't needed a way to get around.

hey guys it's been a little while since I last posted and I figured I'd give you a little bit of an update on what's been going on with Eagleeyes. Since my last update I have installed two 6 inch LED light bars on the front bumper, as well as four brand new mud flaps that I painted the word Eagle on in white lettering that is in Eagle script (don't ask me how long that took to accomplish). I have also replaced both hatch hinges and have also installed a f150 tac where my none working clock was. I also had to replace both front brake calipers after breaking off both bleeder screws.  ::) I then replaced the entire driverside front hub because when the machine shop I took the old one to went to press the new cones for the bearings in they just kind of dropped in with no pressure applied to them.  ???

hey guys just a little bit of an update. Yesterday on my way to work I had a minor accident involving an 18 wheeler. For the most part Eagle Eyes is alright, thankfully the only real damage is to the lip on the left front rim and the corresponding strut rod bracket.
