my jeep got a new valve cover gasket and intake/exhaust gasket and an oil change.

Also hopefully took care of some rattles that have been bugging me.


I guess ive gotten used to the small lift I installed, and it just doesnt look like its lifted anymore to me..

No its not. Shes been making a strange noise for a while and we took her to 4 wheel supply(or whatever its called) and they supposedly fixed it but shes not fixed.


-Today we picked her up from the shop and then took her right back(didnt do us any good). And then we went to the mall had lunch and went shopping. We bought something for her too.

I didn't do it today, but wanted to wait a few days to post...

Put on the Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor tires to replace the lousy Goodyear Eagle LS factory tires. If anybody is looking for a good daily-driver tire, I highly recommend the Fortera Silent Armor tires.

The Eagle LS tires were ok on dry pavement, but would give up and slide at the first hint of damp pavement or dirt, and on snow they were absolutely the worst tire that I've ever driven on...I think I would have been better off driving on racing slicks through the snow this winter than with the stock Eagle LS tires.

The Forteras are great so far...quieter than the Eagles, less impact harshness, and they handle the wet and nasty stuff FAR better than the Eagles. They seem to have less rolling resistance than the Eagles...the steering feels a bit lighter, the MDS kicks in sooner and more often, and I've noticed about a 1 mpg gain since installing them even though I've been driving a bit harder on this tank. Despite the fact that they feel like they've got less rolling resistance, they seem to stick a little better, especially in the wet. They feel like they have a firmer sidewall than the Eagles...I feel bigger bumps a little more now, but the Forteras mask the small, sharp impacts MUCH better than the Eagles.

I know...it's not a mud tire so most people probably don't care, but the WK is my daily driver...just wanted some tires that worked better than the Eagles, and the Forteras are much better on all counts.
