Did you check for a squeaky dog toy wedged up there? That might be the problem
I tend to wave at all the other Jeeps on the road as well =) My girlfriend is always like "You don't know them" I tell her she's just jealous that she doesn't have one too.

on topic: went on a quick wheelin trip. sadly this is the only pic i got...
any excuse to post pics of the Jeep right?

The coupon deal is for any part(s) purchased on Advance Auto.com. If you're spending $150 then you get $25 off on down to like $15 off.... just depends on how much you buy. The deal is currently listed on their website, but I don't know how long it's going on, but check it out if you've got things to fix. I bought my booster online and drove over to pick it up for free at the store. (I called first just to make sure they had it though.)

Changing out the booster was a lot easier than I thought it would be. If you've got sqeaky/ squealy brakes, I HIGHLY recommend doing this. Trust me when I say that the quiet, smooth braking is WELL worth the $100. I'd never messed with my brakes before except for rotors and pads and this job only took me 30-45 min ... tops.

I'll post something of a write-up later today.....

I welcome all critics. Everyone has an opinion. I wasnt saying any of you were snobs. i apologize about that. i was simply informed to be careful. I like a Jeep no matter what model. Personally I would have loved to find a Limited that wasnt ragged out. This was the best deal could find. Sorry for the misunderstanding and I appreciate you alls feedback.

I bought mine! Well...strictly speaking I bought it the day before yesterday. Today I ordered a transmission speed sensor. I will be getting the sensor and fitting it Friday and then taking the Jeep for my first proper drive in it!

It pisses me off when the windows are shut and the radios off, I have a video. I should have had my blinker off I know but i took this video while I was waiting to leave an intersection..

It's all good man...I've actually been looking to swap out my cladding and bumpers for ones like yours, but actually for the darker ones that are on the freedom edition (maybe they are just darker in my head, but they seem to be)..."

and about the one's who "informed" you
"F the nay sayers cause they don't mean a thing...this is the style we bring"

so what did you do with your OEM headlights? snap a pic and send me PM, if they are as they should, I may be able to take them off your hands...

Transmission input/output speed sensor, the 42RE has one and the 45/545RFE has two. I got a P0720 fault code which suggests the transmission output speed sensor is dead...either the sensor or the wiring to it...I hope it's the sensor because I really don't want to have to find a wiring related fault!
As a result of the failed sensor my jeep is in limp mode and will not go into overdrive and is hard shifting whenengaging drive or reverse. Apparently the transmission speed sensors are a relatively common failiure part.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that that's all it is!
