Well, lets see. I did a tune up on my zj (5.2) the other day. I got the tune up upgrade from kolak. I can tell a diff in it such as minor throttle response. I took the front drive shaft out because the the d**** thang started vibratin' real bad. Now I'm driving a freakin 2x4... sucks!!!. Trying to figure out what I want to buy first: DS from Tom Woods for $359, exhaust upgrade from Kolak because my cat has died and I want a good soundin flowmaster on there, and if I do the exhaust I want to buy the headers next, so $800 or so, put the 3" Rusty's Offroad spring lift kit on with all 8 adj. control arms which I have sittin in the the cargo space of my jeep at this time (install for $250 excluding the front trac bar - I have the the rear bracket for the time being), or put new mopar pcm and K&N fipk on it... ect. AHHHHHH..... decisions decisions. Why can't it be easier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just ordered some stuff for it...I'll actually do the work within a week or so once everything gets here.
Ordered new tires...nothing special since I do mostly street driving and not looking to lift anytime soon...Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor in the stock size. I can't wait to lose the stock Goodyear Eagle LS tires...they suck on anything but dry pavement, but the Forteras are rated pretty well for dry, wet, snow, etc. Gas mileage and tread life were factors here...I didn't want a larger, heavier tire with a really aggressive tread pattern...just doesn't match up with my driving needs.
Ordered an exhaust and air intake for the hemi...Gibson single in stainless steel and an airaid. I liked the gibson on my Dakota that I used to have...louder and deeper than stock, but no droning and it doesn't rattle windows, so I think I'll be happy with it on the Jeep. The airaid...I wanted a K&N FIPK, but none available for the hemi Jeep yet, so I'll give it a try.
Installed my new front sway bar. Changed the tranny fluid. Got the tranny cooler installed and ready for hookup once I find the fitting I need.
Tomorrow the new Brembo rotors go on and I re-charge the AC. Might try to find the fitting I need too so I can get the cooler hooked up.

Drove it .3 miles to the gym, then .3 miles back. That's about all she's done for the past 2 weeks, been taking public transport to work and getting groceries and stuff on the way home. Haven't put any gas in her in a month - and still have 1/2 a tank! That's gonna change this summer, though, big trips planned!
I hate you... anyone who has ever even been to AZ knows that we have the worst mass transit in the entire lower 48... it's not the traffic that is that bad, heck Tucson has worse traffic then phoenix, ask Woody... but everything is so far apart and busses are as reliable a cheating girlfriend and only they go as far as you can throw her...
I haven't done anything to my WJ since I washed her last week and I've driven to Tucson twice since then, she needs a bath and some new oil... I'll prolly do that in a couple days.. man I'm so stressed, I hope nathan is still throwing the BBQ... I'll bring the potato salad or something.

I daydreamed about driving it. It's at the dealership to replace the front calipers and master brake cylinder because of river water contaminents. I was really happy to re-work my Jeep loan at the bank to include the $1,100 on repairs. I used to have equity and now I am breaking even.
