Had AC recharged, was leaking, put in dye, o-ring got caught on re-install, to replaced and charged again.

Next on the list is the door hem rust, installing mopar hitch (I think bolts on tank are shot), and eventually shocks!!!!
I recently installed wix fuel filter and Bosch fuel pump, i noticed a loud whine coming from rear, that is from the fuel filter?

Appears great minds think alike!

Your Jeep looks great as is w/out the need for a '04 bumper fascia refit IMO.

I do like the effect my door handles being black has on the whole overall Panda 'theme'. Looking forward to the pics of your LED strip install.

I drove about 1500 miles after changing out to the Wix fuel filter and then the whine started. Really noticeable in the jeep to the rear. Thought it might be fuel pump going bad but after search this forum, found a 50/50 split of people having a whine from the wix. When the Jeep was cold and I'd prime the fuel pump, no whine just the pump. After drove around and heated up, primed again after stopping and whine.

Only 20 miles on the Mopar fuel filter but absolutely no noise.

I replaced the windshield after a golf ball sized rock flew off a dump truck.

Did you get number or company name off of the truck? I had that happen once, not as big, but cracked my windshield. Called them and they told me to get a police report and they would pay for a new windshield.

Wow, most dump buggy tailgates say that they aren't responsible for busted windshields so don't follow within some number of feet.

I'm not sure there is any legal weight behind that.

I'm pretty sure you are always responsible for what may come flying off the vehicle you operate. I'd bet the companies just slap stickers like that on to try and prevent people from trying to seek money for windshields.

Somewhat on the flip side, everyone should use some common sense and not tailgate a truck hauling stuff that might fall off.

All trucks are supposed to be clean of any debris that can fly off while driving. I once had a rock come across three lanes of traffic and take out my windshield on my Audi.

Another reason not to drive an Audi. They're rock magnets.
