after a long weekend of driving 2-23 gallon tanks @ 3.99/gal 2 bottles of @ 5$ each and 3 quarts of oil @ 5.59/qt. I think its time to replace that plenum gasket in the niner besides that its performance was flawless and memorizing

I just did mine yesterday in my ZJ. It wasn't too bad to do plus it gave me the opportunity to do some preventative maintenance on it (thermostat and coolant bypass hose). I picked up the plenum plate from the guy over on thespeedfreaks.net. I actually bought it from him on eBay rather than on thespeedfreaks.net because he doesn't seem to sign in much there. Torquing everything back down was the worst part. The plenum plate is a 3 step torquing sequence and the intake manifold is a 10 step, increasing by 1 ft. lb. each time on only the first four bolts. If you have any questions about any of the proper torquing, I still have all the paperwork I printed off and I could definitely find it again and get the links for you.

I just go back from 3 days of 4 wheeling around ghost towns, mines and lakes up north with some friends. Yesterday did the trip from Bridgeport to Bodie and half way through we where hit with heavy thunder showers, I hate mud!

Last night stop by a carwash and spent $20 cleaning my jeep, then spent the night at Alabama Hills below Mount Whitney.

This morning went out exploring the area and shot some photos.

Sunrise at camp.


One of the other campsites, with a cave.


Hitting the trails.







Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.
