Anyone have any experience with the plastic cladding on the top of the rear bumper coming up? If so how did you fix it? I am thinking at least a pair of bolts (to make it symmetrical) and a couple washers and drilling a small hole through the cladding to insert the bolt and hold it down.

Gotta clean it though after all the snow we got here.


Also anyone else noticed WJJeeps having issues loading pages and especially images?

Put on the Guard Dogs 265/70/17 E, tallest 265's I have seen. Put almost 400 miles on them as soon as they were put on.

I got underneath and had someone play with the wheel. Its kinds like the noise is coming from somewhere around the pitman arm...I believe that's what it is...on the drivers side.

Re wired my after market yellow fog lights so that when I turn them on the factory ones turn off . That way I don't have more than four forward facing lights and I stay nice and legal.

Spent the day working on my wife's Pontiac G6 and my WJ. Her car got a new oil filter adapter seal (what a strange thing to be leaking, right?) and a new serpentine belt. I kinda like driving her car sometimes... I almost forget what it's like to drive something that isn't slow.

Then I got to working on the WJ.... I turned these 200k+ stock shocks into nice purty new Monroe Reflexes. The drive home was a nice test for the new shocks and they are AWESOME. Exactly the ride I was looking for. Nice fast rebound but smooth.

I also dropped the tranny pan and did a new filter and refilled with Valvoline ATF+4. Nothing serious. I thought about doing the bands but didn't have specs or a torque wrench handy. Someday down the road, maybe.

What else... Oh yeah, I took the dumb horribly designed spectre "cold air" (more like hot air) intake off and put the stock system back on with a Wix filter. Much better. I like it quieter and I don't think that other one gave it a performance boost of any kind, not to mention, again, it's terrible design.

I need to find a gas tank pan. Mine is very rusty (the only rusty thing on my whole Jeep, strangely enough). I'll have to check around.
