so, my WJ has treated me more than well, I love the thing so far. Very great ride, I've had some chances to push its limits on handling and the such
I got the rear sway bar moog bushings from AAP and as I went to install them found out that they weren't the problem. The problem is where the bottom of the links attach to the sway bar, for whatever reason there seems to be a decent amount of play. So I returned the moog bushings (need every penny lol) and I'm going to eventually order two new sway bar links to fix the issue. I was so relieved to actually work on suspension that wasnt welded over in rust.
I'm picking up a new stant gas cap tomorrow they are on sale at AAP near me for a great price, only $5!!!! Hopefully this will fix my check engine light otherwise I am going to be an extremely unhappy Jeep owner tracing down the p0456 code. http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_CAP-GAS-Stant-BP_18481529-P_112_R|GRPCAPSAMS_1601063706___
Oh and other stuff, who the hell thought it would be funny to switch the standard for the windshield blade connectors on the WJ. I had to pop and replace those stupid clips on the rain-x wipers and even still they dont feel as secure as the ones on my XJ. Also I found out the cheap so called "-20 freezeproof" stuff from autozone just doesnt cut it in this 15 degree weather. I spray the stuff and within seconds of it being on my windshield it glazes over and makes it impossible to see. Grrr. Going to have to blow through all my washer fluid and buy that overpriced Rain-x/prestone crap
I'm really upset, waiting for summer I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to use the sunroof bad and also have functioning Air Conditioning. My XJ it never worked, the ZJ I fixed it a month before I got rid of it, and now I'm excited for WJ auto climate. I also want to be able to do a complete in-depth cleaning of the whole Jeep I'm talking about every single crack and crevice I can find. I want it to be completely spotless, including the door sills and the engine bay, the fuel tank filler area, all those places I can tell you have never been hand-washed before.
I also did some WD-40 rust proofing with comptiger, we sprayed it in the bottom gutter drains of the doors and hatch, and I coated all of my wheel wells and visible suspension components and pinch welds in it. heheh. My Jeep kinda sorta reeeeked like WD-40 for the couple days after that but it was for a good cause
New speakers sounding great still but I did notice at loud volumes in certain songs I'm vibrating the door panels. Damn, I knew it wouldnt sound perfect after breaking half those stupid clips. Anyone know where I can find a bunch of them for a reasonable price??
I also need a Mopar trailer hitch setup. I really do not like the way the U-haul hitch hangs down low and even so I do not trust it structurally (chunks of metal fall off of it every couple of days and its completely rusted through) I also cannot even get the hitch pin out so that ball mount is stuck in there. Obnoxious.
