Got it unstuck out of a 2 foot rut of mud, water and ice... I need to have the vari-lok checked... something did not not seem right. This was my break in as I only had my WJ for a month. Wish I took pix and a vid of the water fording that my buddy thought was awesome....

more pep, how so? an extra 35 amps from the alternator can do that?

when i pulled my belt off (i heard a belt noise) i couldn't hardly turn the water pump. even when it was out it was a pain to spin. so theres the big power robber there.

plus, having all new pulleys on belt helped reduce friction i'm sure. either way, my jeep honestly dropped about 200 rpm at 65mph... and the worst thing is, because my jeep was "running fine" and not overheating, i never would have known....

sometimes noises aren't bad i guess?

Crappy cheap LEDs overvolted due to improper resistors so they look brighter and die sooner. Suggest replacing them with some nice ones from superbright or sumfin the rubber grommets should pull straight out and the bulb will be in a socket. For whatever reason the middle ones on my friends' WK went, but only the middle ones... the outer ones have been working great. Weird

Relevant, my WJ headlight aiming is outstanding, going from crappy XJ sealed beams to this was just godly
