As we continue assembling the Jeep we discover that the rear brake hose needs to be replaced with something longer and more suitable for the job. In this video we take care of that with a brake hose I got at Napa and also repair the damaged emergency brake cable. Oh and we check out the Iron Rock Of Road 1.5" wheel spacers that will allow me to run the stock wheels with this lift kit. -Enjoy!

    After a few years with the Iron Rock setup, have you had any noises develop in the rear suspension? I have some major noise I'm trying to run down.

    Really enjoying these. Big thankyou

    While you get that thing up in the air and its rust-free. Either use New Hampshire oil undercoating, or make up a mix, of transmission fluid, PB Blaster, and Dawn dish detergent add spray everything under that vehicle and inside the frame rails. Inside where those door weep holes are, and bore a couple of holes in that rocker panel and do the underside of those rocker panels. And then you can always add some every couple of years or so or even less.
    The mix ratio for this stuff in 1 quart would be 11 oz of transmission fluid, 8 oz of PB Blaster, and 1 oz of Dawn dish detergent. So for a gallon it would be four times that much for each item.
    It might not be a bad idea to drop down the fuel tank cover, clean up the inside of it and put some truck bed coating inside of it, and it clean up the outside of it do the same thing to be outside of it and spray the inside with that same solution before you put it back on. Otherwise in New York that thing's going to look like shit in a few years. You can also spray the fuel tank itself before you get everything back together.

    Sometimes working on your own truck can become a chore. Especially if itโ€™s taking up work space.

    Awesome video!!

    I have trouble with those e-brake shoes, springs, etc. almost all the time. Not much room to work on them. You are making progress – it's looking good

    You've not said or shown anything on the Jeep for sometime do you still own it what you doing with it

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M D says:

    When using the wheel spacers, did you use red loctite on the axle studs to ensure the spacer doesnt come loose from the axle?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Lentz says:

    I can't begin to express how relieved I was when you struggled a bit with the actuator. While I'm only a shade tree mech, I'd like to think I'm decent but those brakes kicked my a$$. First video of yours I watched and appreciated it. I also work on vehicles with my daughter Samantha – wouldn't trade it for the world.

    YOu got to teach Hanna to wear proper shoes/boots in a work area. Sneakers!?! Ouch!

    What a clumsy flaring tool. There has to be something better to do this one detail.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Bozzone says:

    Rick…You really hit on something with your videos. Nobody ever really gets to see what it takes to repair various types of problems. Viewers share a common appreciation for watching you work and the educational dialogue that accompanies the repair. Your camera work is excellent. The level of detail is clear. Including your family is a plus. I just wanted to offer some positive feedback from a fan.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Bozzone says:

    You probably should have sprayed some brake fluid on it

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Bozzone says:

    There is no easy way to install that brake cable, .

    That could be why your a jittery not enough rust no threat of tetanus

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    That would be a well rounded fact nothing ventured nothing gained and you ,your venturing a great deal. And I'm not one to criticize your work on your project.

    IN PA we have to call them adapters as spacers are illegal and you will not pass yearly inspection

    Does your 4.7 have magnesium valve covers, and if so, what brand valve cover gaskets did you use?
