You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

1. painted my claddings and bumper covers with Rustoleum Bed liner (that stuff is amazing i use it for everything)
2. painted my rear tow hook glossy red (total rice move, i know... but it looks tight)
3. sanded all the rust and grime off of my tail pipe, then took steel wool and made it smooth to the touch. (looks good, kind of glossy but not chromey)
4. took out my sub, pulled all wires, stripped moldy carpet from my trunk. vaccumed it out. probably going to just put a carpet down back there to cover the surface

and my transmission problems (long story, dont even ask) are slowly healing themselves? shifting smoother day by day and mysteriously going back to normal. looks like the jeep gods love me this week!

Does any one have a left handed metric adjustable jeep wrench. I guess you need one to change the blinker fluid.

I used some aviation snips to cut out about a 4" by 6" section of the hood liner and bracing. You also have to replace the bolt on the TB to hold the hat down, and change to a longer tube from the airbox.

Can't wait till someone farts and blows a semi off the highway.

You'd be doing me a favor if you called me Mark or Tombstone, but not both.

Well DUH! But after a while the sticker-vehicle weight continuum gets all out of wack and throws off your turbo-timer. Unless you wanna start running a higher octane you gotta seek out other options like cold air exhausts and an anti-swirl throttle body space-reducer.
