I looked for that tonight and couldn't find it anywhere! I'll have to look in the light tomorrow though.

OT: was driving about an hour ago and bam, my whole exhaust fell to the ground. Clean break right before the cat. Strange, it was all fine before. Hoping I can get it welded and not need a new cat. Damn the 4.0 is loud without any exhaust.

That's what I had on my zj. Still slowly buying parts to fix it. It's getting there though.

Weak dude! Can you imagine being one of the other drivers, just chilling then a zj goes cartwheeling past their passenger window. Glad it didn't turn out worse

Put an old CA bolt in the swaybar side of my driver side JKS disconnect to hold it in after throwing a bolt today :

I'll head to the hardware store in the next couple days to get one that's actually the right length.

I don't understand why so amazed. Maybe I've jus been lucky, but I've always gotten at least 14 Mpg, even after the lift and 31's! Makes me curious what ill get after the crate motor goes in!

Is this the "spring" you were talking about EJ? Mine seems to be super corroded; no way I'm getting any wire off unless I cut.

FWIW trying to boost the antenna signal.
