Gas is now $4.74 a gallon here. Don't want to fill the truck so I'm driving the Jeep for the next week until I head down to the US.

Got my foad money for it. $1600 shiny from AAA to cover the rear end damage from their unfortunate client.

On the 9er, finally fixed the map lights (LED's!), both shifter bezel lights, swapped out the rear hatch hardware so I can now open the flipper glass, and replaced the rear passenger window switch.

Niner gets new tires soon so it can be take over DD duty. For the trail jeep I gotta fix the power steering pump, install new LED fog/aux lights in my bumper, and do something about the smashed to **** rear end.

I paid $4.30 per gallon. The owner's manual says something about when you drive harder, to use 89 or 91. I usually start putting 89 in before I do something like wheeling or towing a couple hundred miles before the "event" to get the Jeep used to it. I'm going to Bundy Hill in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make sure I get some mileage in on 89 before I go. 87 was $4.10 per gallon.

I think i paid 3.86. That was with the fuel light coming on on the way to town. I wanted to see how far I could go on one tank since its warm now. And almost 100 miles more a tank than during the winter

found my trans fluid leak...
after swapping radiators, the wrong brass fitting came attached to the upper trans port on the radiator. Swapped it out, no more leak.
Also cleaned my IAC

Replaced my plugs and wires. I found out that the previous owner had the wires for cylinder 6 & 8 switched (dist. post 6 running to cyl. 8 and vice versa), but it doesn't seem to run any different. Any ideas why?
