Had the car show this weekend. Didn't get that many pictures though. Great turnout and a lot of nice cars came out.
















Rolled the 121k mark. Climbing on up there.

Over the last week or so, finished up finals, packed up and came home. Drove home in about 5 hours, 285 miles, avg speed about 65-70 mph, and console said 20.2 mpg so realistically 19.1 mpg (based on how it usually reads). Traveled to the Eastern Shore to visit friends and went to a NASCAR race in my area too. All in all about 630 miles travel from last week over a span of 4 days. Definitely more miles it sees on a regular bases. Nothing bad to really report, held its own and didn't have any big incidents.

Something I do have to say is that I am still fighting a sticky lifter, its still bad even in the summer. It sounds like death until it finally decides to pump oil through it. Which can be more than 5 minutes. I think I need to try an engine cleaner. :/

Had the privalage to drive 04Overland47's WJ last weekend. What a experience, that HO motor is just awesome and roars! Also road in his '10 WK Hemi and that was too cool as well. Borrowed the 03 E-Class Benz for the road trip from VA to NJ, a bit faster, quieter, and better on fuel than my Jeep. Totalled about 1000 miles. I've got the V8 fever real bad now!

Little mini project is coming soon with some more LED's

What about a Seafoam treatment followed by a Mobil 1 0w-30? Just a thought. I'm actually running the 0w in my 4.7 H.O. It's only been 200 miles but it's never run this smooth and hasn't burned anything yet. (I did run Mobil 1 10w-30 High Mileage prior to the 0w)

I'm probably going to have to do a seafoam treatment. There is just something that is preventing the lifter from pumping up initially. Guessing some gunk in there. I'd be leary about running an oil that thin in the 4.0.

Are you running the diesel variety if Amsoil? That's what I was running in my 4.0. It's got more zinc for one thing. It might work out for you. 10w30 ftw?

Still be using the Mobil 1 10w-30 High Mileage. The oil analysis I've done shows that the M1 HM has high levels of Zinc.

A seafoam treatment may be needed.

I love the pics. How'd the Jeep do on the sand? Then it wasn't really the type of sand that makes traction difficult by the looks of it. Random horse pic, too? lol

Jeep did great in the sand. Didn't really bother to air down but I ran in 4 low and it took a lot of load off of the engine. The soft sand was harder to get through, ie requiring more throttle. Other parts were packed hard it was like the road!

The horses are wild that roam the beaches in Corolla!

That's pretty cool. I didn't realize you had horses there like that. I'd have figured it was best to keep your speed up in sand, thus staying in 4-hi, but I'm nowhere near a beach so never driven on one. Is that a house with the horses in front of it, or some type of visitor's center?
