Worked on my replacement door a little more today. Also found some 245/70R17 with WJ Grand Cherokee Rogue Wheels for $400. Tires are Nitto Grapplers. Tread looks pretty good. 1000 times better than my current tires. Now my question is can I get by with 245s on stock suspension just long enough to order my BB in the next few weeks?

Speedbucket, thats some good looking welds to me. Since every weekend here lately is either boiling hot or flooding rain I went in early two days so I could get off early today. Sprinkling rain but it quit. But just as I was about to leave a heat pump bit the dust so I had to replace it. Then high tailed it to the JY while it was kinda cool and not raining. Pulled a alarmed pcm/ bcm combo with the key switches out of the front doors, two silver exhauster vents, front door harnesses, various plugs,an auto dim outside rearview in really good shape,a vacumn harness for manual heater control for $68. Not bad for an afternoon.

Attempted to redo the front brakes after I found the pad had no material left on the inside pad and had eaten into the rotor. Outer pad was ok. Driver side had good pads but I noticed that the steering knuckle had a couple grooves worn in it from the inside pad. PO also left a caliper bolt out. Gotta pick one up and gonna dremel the grooves out of the knuckle tomorrow. Hoping (but doubting) that well resolve my front end noise, thinking carrier bearings

Put my front bumper cover back on after a little over 2 months of having it off. Looks so much more stock now. Not sure if I like it lol

Mounted my 33's!! The rears are sittin almost far enough away from the front of the wheel well that I can fit my finger between the well and the tire, and the front rub waaayyyyy bad when turned to full lock. I flattened the pinch seams already but they are rubbin a lot more than just the seams, gonna hafta see if I can figure out how to stop that from happening other wise I may have to go back to the pizza cutters til I can afford to order the front lower adjustable CA's.

Did some wiring on my 12v breaker panel in the cabin and prepped it for a trip to Boston this weekend and the drive to Rochester on Wednesday.

I did my usual pre weekend errands, 45 - 60 miles of stop and go, now I have a slight miss at idle. Temp gauge went back into the non-functioning status. All the other gauges seem to be normal, time to recheck grounds again I guess. Could be crappy gas, the new symptoms started right after a fill-up. I miss my beater Mustang DD. I love the ZJ, but the 'Stang was dependable as sunrise/ sunset.
