Mines the same. If you give it load on the highway, it goes to upper teens and drops back when you ease up. Air temp was worst tho, got it up to 150*. Def not CAI

Just ordered my analysis kit from them too.
How much do they require for the sample?
Jeeps in need of an oil change and I want to make sure I set enough aside.

They send a 3 ounce bottle, and state that you should try to fill it. It also states to drive on the highway (not idle up to temperature) to get it good and hot, then while draining, get the sample from the "middle of the drain" I drained out what my eye-measuring cup said 2 qts, then held the bottle under until it was full.

BTW, it's already 80 out, and I drove it on the interstate HARD this morning, and could only get it to 215, but it seemed like it liked to sit at 212. As soon as I got off the exit, it dropped to 210.6, and then varied between there and 213 while driving 0-30 through a few lights to my office.

No I got it, everyone goes for broke at 3K just for suspension upgrades..... I guess if you got it then flaunt it

Personally I have family obligations so adjustable shorties is how I roll.... Fexin in the garage when I put the rears on (no tires on) I was able to flex about 12-14 inches.... I am sure I will have to trim back fenders when I mount my 37's this weekend. plus I don't like all that junk hanging low under the WJ waiting to get cought up on something.. IMO

BIG fan of "high clearance/Big tires/Low Center of Gravity"

sorry for crappy pics
hanging on shocks


full flex

x2

I do plan on the RC long arms when funds come available. The RC dealer can get me the upgrade kit for ~$800, and I'm trying to work with RC to get all the crap that I already have (that they include with the upgrade) pulled out to make it even cheaper.

Nope. Just a bluetooth OBD-II reader. I used one from ebay with the "elm327" chipset. I think it was $15, then I paid $20 to 2-day ship it. (I'm impatient)

Torque for Android.

I have it on the tablet pictured and my phone.

It's free, and there's a 5 dollar pay version too

waiting to hear back about your oil analysis, with these heat problems is like waiting to hear from the vet whether or not your dog is going to die....
