Meh, it's a minor side effect.
Neat, you get a few weeks at or above 90.

We get 5 months at or above 90. And 3 and a half of those are spent higher than 95. This was a cool year, but last year we had something like 75 days above 100, and something like 69 of them were consecutive.

Sure our winters are super mild compared to yours. But after such a long summer, it's not a fun transition.

Replaced the heater core and AC evaporator - what a job. Had to rip the entire dash out completely. Took the whole weekend. But it is back on the road now!

Last week i was in shorts and t shirts now im in jeans and a hoody.

I dont complain cuz my zj loves the cold it never runs hot no matter how hard i push it and that cold air does wonders for the 5.2. Only that sucks is i dont have defrost.

Like they say if you dont like the weather in texas, just wait a minute.

Replaced the thermostat in the ex's 5.9.... As it turns out, her 5.9 needs the coolant bypass hose replaced as well... Trying to get her to have me change out the water pump while I'm at it...

WHAT A DAY, the ZJ ran like **** this morning, CEL came on again. Double checked my work and everything seemed O.K. NOT AT ALL! new DTC read 21,27,42 "x2", 43, and finally 47 "x2". Keep in mind all this at work this morning. I went straight to the PCM/ECU and behold, burnt up circuit board. Now, I have to wait for a new PCM and re-flash everything to get her to run again. WHAT A DAY!

I thought only '96-'98 PCMs needed to be flashed? Or was I thinking of something else?
