Haven't been around in a while. Hi y'all fellow Jeepsters.
Spring time check up before boat towing season: oil change, all fluid and all visual inspections, 5 tire rotation, inspect brake surfaces and apply disc quiet again, still squeaks. Thought I destroyed the parking brake shoes after my wife said "whats that smell"? They are ok and checked the axle seals while i had the plate off.
Clean all the wheel BACKSIDES. It makes me very nervous snapping out and moving the wheel center cap to the spare from the new spare position occupant.
Having the idle jump up and wander again on start, after 2nd TPS replacement, this one IS a MOPAR TPS. On vacation this week, if the temps go down below 90F I'll pull the throttle body and clean it and the IAC again and re-check all vacuum fittings.
Sunroof leaked like a MF recently, wife wants to sell it.
She is a bit quick tempered. 0- FML in 10 seconds.
Pulled the A pillar trims and inspected the drain tubes, repeatedly and carefully snaked the front drain holes with a small pipe cleaner style brush and some canned air, garden hose test results: Flow so good it made me have to go pee.
Spring time wash/wax with attention to all door jamb areas: you know, the stuff you can see with the doors or hatch open.
Still on the detailing list: clean / detail / underhood, silicone all rubber weather stripping, air intake, hoses.
Most recent problem: Sunroof track binds and makes a pop, snap noise when opening. What the H, lets call it a Snap, Crackle, Pop noise. Track doesn't appear damaged but there are some knicks where something is binding. I wiped it all clean while dealing with the leak, I'll try some white lithium grease sparingly on it soon.
She's not a showgirl, but she plays one in my life.
Almost forgot, my wife's ride so I don't really drive it much. Took it out and let the V8 sing a bit. OOOHHH that feels GOOOOD.
