Sparkplugs done today,
Some of the old ones i pulled had been sligthly overgaped, but looked in ok,
hopefully it helps my mpg a tiny bit.
cleaned out Airfilter and airfilterbox,,,,
Had a look at the TB, never seen it this clean, AND never had soooo much sand'n dirt in my Airfilter box, hmmmmm,,,, lets see,?,?,?
Guess That this is quite a proof That the WIX filtrates the air 1000XBETTER than the KN Shhhhty let air'n dirt thrue filter i had before.

About That new car feeling, i drove my friends NEW 2013 Toy ota RAV4 the other day piking up his new Motorbike.
Drove the Toy pc'o shhhh for about 1 hour back home, its fully spec'd, the biggest choice of Diesel engine, and it cost huge money here in Norway (650k NOK!!!),
What a boring suprice, it feels just cheap with plastic everywhere,
and weird Steering responce,
and worst, no power at all.
It didnt do anything to me, didnt give me a feeling of comfort, driving happiness or anything.
Overall the most boring new car i ever tried.

God bless my 13 year old Jeep

Still waiting for everything :-(

Back in April i ordered 3" OME lift, JKS trackbar, JKS quick discos, Kolak Exhaust, stillen pads and rotors, Addco rear swaybar. Have alot of stuff comming in, hope i will start getting some boxes soon, 'couse im running a little impatient Hehe... That's just what we have to deal with, being so far away from anything

The Jeep is running okay. But really needs new brakes, and tighten the steering up. Hope the new trackbar + swaybar can help things up.

Besides that i think i need to look into my front drive shaft( gonna remove it in the next days), and possible my wheel hubs aswell... Damn, alot to do ! Gotta love it Havent even gotten to think about new tires yet... hehe...

Got the Stillen's broken softly in,
Done about 300km/180mile with no hard braking at all, tried them harder today,
they deff Are a upgrade over stock, reduced the brake fading feeling i got after the bigger tires.
Aired up the tires to 44psi to try that today, tires started to feel alitte soft when temp comes up around here,
deff feels alot better now

Next up, tune up/service fluid filters Transmission and transfer case.

I updated the picture above, shows you the part numbers for everything. I think those are just surface cracks, I've seen those before on transfer cases that i've rebuilt and had apart. You *should* be okay. Get some new plugs though!

I can see it start to leak at the gasket to the right of the cracks and fill plug, fill plug is still stuck and i suspect cracks might open up more if i keep on hamering and use force and other violent tricks to Get it out.
