This is a myth. I've seafoamed a number of vehicles from a number of time periods, including my 1997 Jeep, 1994 GMC, 2002 Saturn, 1990 Nissan Pathfinder, and my friends' 2002 Isuzu Rodeo, 2005 Scion tC, and 2009 Silverado. Not a one ever had O2 sensor issues. Seafoam is petroleum-based and only goes through the system once in a blue moon, so it's a class of chemicals that don't damage O2 sensors and they're not exposed to enough anyway. I practically swear by the stuff, it's awesome. (I also suggest using a quart of ATF+4 or Dexron III in the crankcase with your oil change; it's basically 10W40 with dye and a couple detergents which keep sludge in solution instead of building up. You can tell the difference)

no bs about doors open, coolant sensor, washer level, yadda yadda. me likey!
That's the Graphical Display Module. My Jeep has one. I hate it. The plastic in the display fades easily, the lights burn out, and the internal circuitry goes bad, which causes none of the lights to work on mine except the "Part Time" and "Full Time" ones. I hate it when little things like that don't work. If I get my hands on a VIC, I'm reflowing the solder and setting up an Arduino to mock up the signals that go bad most often. Boom da yada.

Threw my TJ bezel on; lil bit more of a project than I anticipated; but it looks great and gives the Jeep an even more rugged look.

Well, today I decided to finish my tune up and tossed on a new set of wires, cap and rotor.

I had to use a pair of pliers to break the rotor to get it off the distributor shaft. That thing was so old and worn it practically melted to the shaft. In the process of doing that I managed to break the oil pressure sending unit.

I was at the junkyard the other day grabbing a few random WJ and ZJ things. On the way out I happen to spot a t-case laying on the ground near a ZJ. Turns out somebody pulled the tranny and left behind a perfectly good 242!

Not having the cash at the time, I walked it to the other side of the yard and left it under an Isuzu Trooper. Wednesday is half off day, so $35 for a 242 is hard to pass up!

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff

Yeah I hope! I have brewed 1 successful batch so far, hopefully this will be my second! I received some good brewing equipment for Christmas and this Nut Brown Ale kit. About a month and a half I'll know how I did...

Me and my dad started last year before Christmas. We brewed one batch that had to ferment for 6 months. It's somthin fun to do. We are currently looking into kegging systems. Good luck on the next brew.

That Trooper wouldn't happen to have been a 95-98 automatic 4x4 would it have? I've got an Isuzu buddy looking for a manually-operated Isuzu transfer case to replace his Torque-on-Demand electronic case and we just can't find one. Just figured maybe you'd have got a look at its case while you was hiding the Jeep case.
