That's good to know. I guess it doesn't matter much though. It's all around the same price anyhow. I have a few quarts of DexMerc in the garage waiting for my 242 swap.

Anyone have an idea on why the gauge lights would dim when I hit a bump? Bad connection in the dimmer switch? Bad solder joints? I'll look at it this weekend.

Redid my injectors with some nice 703's, cleaned the TB with a toothbrush, carb cleaner, and some holy water (aka Seafoam).

I was going to adjust the timing but I think the distributor hold down bolt is a non-normal size, it seemed to be somewhere around a 13 or a half inch but nothing I have works... Wtf?

Got the old girl muddy.

Had a nice talk with the PO. He's one of the nicest guys I've ever bought a vehicle from. very honest and upfront. I'm going to take him off roading one of these days. May even let him drive the jeep!

That is pure badass....

Damn do I miss my Duratracs... Really sick tires.

Going to have trouble deciding next year whether it's another new set of 31'' BFG ATs or another set of Duratracs...

You're making me want to buy a set now, but I'm gonna wait until the swap meet in about a month and see if I can score a sweet deal there. If I don't, I'm gonna get a set of those. I've already ordered another set of steelies just for them lol. What backspace are your wheels?

3.75 I believe. I've been scouring Craig's and local forums for a descent used set, but haven't had any luck, and I've been on the spare for 3 weeks now, so I decided to just go ahead and get tires haha.
