Here's the gauge:


95-100 F temperature today. First picture is idling with the A/C on, after idling for 30+ minutes. The second picture is after driving 50-60mph for 15 minutes.

Straight down, driver's side

Straight down, passenger side

Through the gap where the hood latch is

Through the grill, no idea what the blue ball-like thing is

Other side, through the grill

Both of these are looking through the gaps at the bottom of the bumper
That looks pritty bad in the pic. How'd it get like that?

It looks worse in person. It's bad because it's 12 years old, and nobody was good to this Jeep until I took possession, and even I'm pretty hard on it.


I'm waiting until it gets here to add a plate & fin type trans cooler as well, that way I've only gotta take the front apart once. (not that it's that hard, having done it 2341241241234 times)

Hey if you can, throw your temp thermometer in the AC vent to see how cold your AC is now prior to swapping out the condenser/propane and again after wanna see how cold the AC gets after the swap

Will do.

I need to clean out the EVAP drain, as it's not as cool as it was a few weeks ago, and when I turn it on I get a musty smell. I'm sure there's mud up in there.

I had to realign my steering wheel today after swapping the TREs on my drag link the other day. I snapped one of the clamp bolts, so I replaced them both with brand new grade 8 hardware.

I moved all the stuff from post 1 of this build thread to post 2, so I can use post 1 as an index for projects throughout.

Got my oil analysis kit from Blackstone today. Good thing too, as I was planning on changing my (overdue) oil today.

I just got the kit in today. Sorry if that wasn't clear. I'm going to change my oil today, then overnight it to them Monday.

Still waiting for my results. It's been a week but that's about right for 1st class mail. Overnight? Save the 10 bucks, it's only going to Indiana.

Figured I'd throw up pictures of my tablet+mount in here, since they were requested in a tech thread.

Here you go. Pardon the mess.








I also changed my oil today (overdue) to fill the test kit for Black Stone. I normally run Valvoline Max Life, but Autozone had a $20 rebate if you bought this: So I'm going to run it for this interval and see how I like it.
