In a previous video ( https://youtu.be/rnqJSex90O4 ) I replace the front axle joints in this 2010 Jeep Wrangler and we were waiting on the new wheel bearings to show up from Napa. They are here now and it is time to put this beast together. -Enjoy!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brendan Lavigne says:

    Since we didn’t get to see him take it apart, don’t worry. All you have to do is play the video in reverse.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Best says:

    Call Mr. Plow,
    That's my name,

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raffaele Vitucci says:

    Funny videos and great work.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul joey says:

    Great vid

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Burgess says:

    Does fluid film being applied on the threads of the caliper bracket run any risk of causing them to be over torqued? I thought if bolts weren't dry the torque applied was too much

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cowboy Boots says:

    Wow, the salt really destroys yalls vehicles up there. Id be cryin if my jeep had rust like that.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars charles johnson says:

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ToXZicK Gaming says:

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Ferguson says:

    Only a little rust…

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars THE BRODNAX's says:

    Eric what camera do you use?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Hollfelder says:

    I did get an Astro air die grinder and the wizzy wheels you use .. awesome best stuff ..

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars myfastcars says:

    I "LOVE" the noise that you add when you pull the can of BRAKE CLEANER out.  You need to make one for the FLUID FILM.  That stuff is the balls!!  Love your Videos!!! I have an 08 Wrangler..  Did the ball joint replacement and had the SAME bearing bolt issue.  MAN,,, THAT SUCKED!!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael B. says:

    Another new one for the crowd..
    ROCKET SURGERY…. the man has them all ..He’ll be here all week folks…

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Adams says:

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KJ's Projects says:

    What torque spec did you useto tighten the barring nut? I had to get a 3 ft cheater pipe to do my ZJ.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Silveira says:

    Nice video. Out of curiosity, shouldn't the broken rubber seal on that ball joint have been repaired too?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Great second part brother see you next time Eric O

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jonwm01 says:

    Shouldn’t we always red lock tight all hardware for the next guy?!😈

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hugglescake says:

    What's with the on camera formalities between you and the Mrs?
    Are you vying for dominance?
    Passive/aggressive behavior?
    I find the interaction intriguing.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Beard says:

    YOU'RE A YOUTUBER YOU DONT GET NO ME TIME!!!!! SNOWPLOW SNOWPLOW!!! LOLZ!!! BUt I do have a question, what is a good 6cfm+ @90 psi air compressor for under 300 bucks? Or is that just not possible?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob S says:

    Someone paint that frame and components under there! The rust is just starting to defeat the previous coating, with another season of snow and salt it might take over

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tommyj19751 says:

    Was about to unsubscribe due to no brake clean in the last 2 videos. However, big nasty was in last video, so I will let it slide this time.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed David says:

    People that don't live in Buffalo upstate area don't understand the issues we deal with working on cars where every nut and bolt is either seized or non existent anymore that salt is a killer a 30 min job turns into 4 hours regularly

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jclark says:

    Grats on the plow, whatd ya go with?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1701:TheFyldeFlyer says:

    I'll never be able to do any of these mechanical jobs but watching your vids on how you do stuff is both interesting and informative. We could do with more honest working mechanics here in the UK instead of the no nothing rip off merchants who do bum jobs.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Calimero 1 says:

    I hate rust lmfao

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars leo abdu says:

    What impact gun you recommend 3/1 and 1/2

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Keller says:

    My Dad use to sale Kubota tractors here in St Joseph, Missouri

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Tilson says:

    Hey Eric! I've been watching your videos now for quite awhile and I am a subscriber! Just wondering, why haven't you hired another tech? There has to be at least ONE guy in your area that has the chops you require. You should be able to put out twice the volume you are now and be able to stop with the 2am quitting times. I'm sure Mrs O would like to see more of you 'after hours' (wink, wink)! Life's too short to spend all of it working, right? Or maybe I'm wrong, you might be swimming in dough from your 'monetized' YouTube content and just run SMA for shits and giggles?? LoL

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JOHN says:

    Greetings from down under, Quick question Mate has a Subaru turbo. Car idles low, can it be adjusted?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr B says:

    napa parts look good, they need start earlier lol .
    almost thought no vid intro, bit like coming home to wife and not getting a smile 🙁
    Anyway stop wasting time in the comments section and get some of that junk shipped .

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mt man 1949 says:

    Something you don’t hear very often, a wrenched using the word punctual. Does this fluid film work? Really?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harrison P says:

    You're a busy man.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Burkart says:

    I was wondering if you automatically add a can of fluid film and brake cleaner to every bill?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Young says:

    What about the hole in the tirod boot

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anonymous98 says:

    How about a special sound for the ever-present Fluid Film?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anonymous98 says:

    With YT’s auto-generating captions on, you seem to announce your channel as “The Self Pain Auto Channel.” If you’re there at 2:00 a.m. on a cold December morning, it seems appropriate.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ToAstYNaChO says:

    what do you think about anti-sneeze vs spraying everything with fluid film? Id imagine the film is way easier so that plague anti seize doesn't get everywhere

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pilot Simms says:

    So . . . . . can we look forward to some plow videos ?
    You got to keep that lot clear so the peoples can get to your laundromat, and all those bad air junkies you support.
    Come for the good service and clean clothes, stay for the bad air.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Araujo says:

    I would have enjoyed a how to install snow plow. Either way. Good video. Keep them coming.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sethinator224 says:

    How are the Napper bearings? I got a cheap Driveworks bearing on my Exploder right now, but when that takes a dump, I'm either going for a Timken from RockAuto or a Napa unit! Maybe I'll bring it to SMA and potentially have another cutting torch action video on my crusty PA Ford!!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Texas says:

    That backing plate looks like it would be a good substitute for a clay pigeon!
