Got my 31's put on!!!!! Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs...They are a bit more meaty than I originally thought, I'm totally okay with that. Pics will be coming later. In class right now.

Ran a new wiring harness for my headlights and put in the autopals the nice fedex man dropped off earlier today. For once I can't wait for it to be dark, haha.

Got any advice for the u-joints, I'm really not looking forward to them and need all the help I can get

five bucks says you blew out the fuse. Those things are fused for the stock amperage ya know


Today I played the mileage game, and I found a good technique. My normal commute uses about one notch of gas daily.... well its been two days and I've gone down almost but just under a notch

I left earlier in the morning and later in the afternoon (after the school traffic clears) and I can hold a nice steady 35mph with coasting instead of bumper to bumper traffic. Now if only I could get my cruise to activate under 37 my life would be just perfect haha (my friends ridgeline activates at like 18, only good thing about the "truck")

if you straight pulled power you probably blew the fuse, you should run a relay, use the stock lights to activate it and pull power from something that can handle it or better yet pull a line back and fuse it by it self

'94 XJ with 165,000 miles on the original engine. Gas light came on and pulled into the station, 15 gallon tank / 330 miles = 22 MPG! And that's all stop and go traffic to and from work.

Filled up the tank and it took 15.9 gallons. Riddle me that, kids.

Don't see how. I did 80% highway and 20% city and only got 19 mpg. Miles seems right, I got about 222 to a 1/2 tank of gas. Was about 11 gallons of gas. Maybe it is right, but doesn't sound it.
