changed the oil and oil filter today. it was cheaper to have someone put valvoline in it than do it myself.
had them check the a/c. they said it has a leak. time for soap water.
wanted to go to the junkyard to buy door clips, an alarm wire to the key lock (caught it in the window when i fixed the door lock linkage), and the door softener hinge thing (it pops everytime i open and close the door because the plastic hinge broke), but i failed to do so.
went to jeep dealer/mechanic to ask him how much it was worth. said it was clean and leather was in good condition but said it was only worth $3500 after a new $400 junkyard transmission because the liberty is more popular with women (even though it blows around in the wind and is more uncomfortable... well, no solid axle to worry about).
How do you like the Kolak exhaust? I seem to have lost a little bit of power with the lift and tires and was wondering if the exhaust would help get it back. I don't want to go the Superchips route just yet, unless I can find a cheap one. The Kolak exhaust will most likely be my next addition.
We've the exhaust for 4, maybe 5 years now and really like it. It's held up to our winters and salted roads really well, only the very tip of the tail pipe has some rust on it, which I plan on refinishing this summer.
We went with the 70 Series Flowmaster vs. the Magnaflow since Kolak felt it was a little more tame and comfortable for freeway driving. There is some slight drone, but it's not bad and even on some of our longer road trips its never bothered us or the kids.
I did the install myself, and if you search here you should be able to find the write up, all the pictures should still work too. I did however go back a couple years ago and replace all the u-bolt clamps with some nice stainless steel band clamps as I was having some issues with the muffler shifting and rubbing against the rear bumper cover.
A tuner of some sort is next on the list of upgrades. I'm torn between the Superchips handheld or the Vivid Linq.
