Almost done putting a new seal and bearing on an axle... ran into a snag, not sure if I can proceed or not.

Haa haa.....yeah right. Converting that to UK gallons that means you hey get a better mpg than I get from my CRD diesel.....I don't think so.

With oversized tires one can't use their odometer or info-panel so the next best accurate device is an updated and publicly available non-military grade GPS. How else is one to calculate MPG other than track distance covered and divide by gallons to refill? To test today, I filled the tank to the brim when departing and to the brim again at the same gas station upon return. I used a Garmin Nuvi to track mileage and, though I prefer more than just a couple hours of driving, it was what it was and the tank only took 3.5 to fill back up when I got back.

If you notice where I may have erred in calculation or have a better method to suggest, then please enlist in the JeepForum group of worthy members and share.

I use a program on my phone. If you know how much your odometer is off by, it can easily calculate what the actual is but it's not enough to be too far out from what I'm actually getting,

Ordered some Rugged Ridge mats for the front. I love mine in the ZJ so the dub needed a set.

Contemplating swapping the Duratracs from the zj to it for the winter. Found brand new take off steelies from a jk locally for $80 I'd put them on. Just afraid of rubbing with stock offset wheels.

First I took the tail lights off and screwed the 2 that lined up in. Then took an extra screw I had in the tool box and screwed the bottom in, right through the bottom of the light fixture. And made sure it was even and lined up. Then slapped them back in.

Got new shoes for the wife's WJ,





They are 265/70R17 Nitto Crosstek's on JK 17" rims. Not bad, $708 out the door with road hazard, mounting/balancing, and full alignment.
