YIKES! I hate salt as much as I do mud. Luckily down here in the south we don't see much salt. There are just way too many nooks and crannies in a jeep to hold the salts and create corrosion. Id me washing everyday if I lived up there.

I hate it, I’ve been washing it once a week. Prior to winter I soaked everything underneath with fluid film inside and out. It’s been holding up well so far. I hate mud but I’d pick that over what we have. I am extremely particular so having a black Jeep, in Maine, in the winter is a rough time. Takes me about 2.5 hours to do a full exterior clean each week 🙄

Today I got an alignment because this weekend I replaced my ball joints and the upper front axle bushings.

All I can say is if you are doing upper axle bushings, have an air hammer... I was able to knock the driver upper bushing out with just the air hammer saving a lot of time and curse words. I do recommend using the power drill method to separate the bushing from the sleeve on passenger side, then air hammering the sleeve out.

Your a brave and patient soul. My recommendation is just spend the hundred and have the shop put it in lol.

It's been sitting so long I had to go out and start it. Sheesh, that's a sad report for what I did today with my Jeep.
