Yesterday I finished the rear calipers and brake lines, changed fluid In rear diff, painted cover, painted rear shocks, washed it and vacuumed inside, found the clicking noise I've been looking for turned out to be a loose front track bar bolt

When you get 15.1 MPG average and are proud of your Jeep, since it has 225000 miles on it.

That happened to me once at a car wash I pay monthly for. I pulled up and it read my RF tag. The gate opened as the guy came over to tell me to leave. Luckily for me, they'd rather let me run through than mess up their sequence of purchased washes. Needless to say, I got through and the manager on duty came and had a "talk" with me while I was vacuuming. I honestly felt kinda bad that I did that, but it needed to be cleaned and I didn't feel like doing it by hand. I normally don't mess around too much in mud because it's not fun to clean...

Before I started fixing things myself, the Color on the invoice from the shop was "Mud/Black". Now our ZJ is "Mud/Green". I LOL every time I look at the old receipt.

When you absolutely HAD to try on your new 32s during a slow spell at work, just to see if they fit with only the Upcountry Package.....

Which they do....

And then couldn't resist "climbing" something.....

Depending on tire width, it might. It probably hits the LCAs up front and the bumper cover, but that's fixable. They should clear pretty well in back though.
