The overhead is not always an accurate gauge for your mileage. You are better off hand calculating it.

Found a surprise 245/70 as my spare during tire rotation. ..wasn't so much as bad news as opportunity to upgrade slightly.

Antenna wire ended up being completely corroded and inseparable. I got one side off, but unfortunately not the side with the spring. Going to have to pick up a new wire at the JY I guess.

went to the junkyard and ripped off all jeep emblems and them on mine. my jeep has been blank until now. it's nice to see the familiar "JEEP" logo on the hood.
