That's a bummer but there is usually lots of guys parting them out in the classifieds section and should be easy enough to come by

I usually fill up pretty consistently when I hit 1/4 tank for the most part. I find if I fill up when it's above half way, I don't get a very good reading and it's way off from when I do it from 1/4 tank. Been tracking since I had my ZJ. (it was a lot worse gas mileage on that one) The engine I had, then with the new engine. Best mileage I've had is slightly over 10L/100KM. Worst has been 15.7L/100km. It aveages about 13L/100km which is within spec.

Finally finished painting my front bumper and grill last night. I used the Krylon Fusion on the grill as I didn't want a different shade of black on it. The grill came out fine. Now I only have a couple small pieces on the back window to do and I'll be done. I have to find a WJ that's being parted out near me for two small things and I can get it all done. Here's a couple pictures...





Now I just need to lift it and throw on some black JK Moabs already!!! Now that I've painted a lot of the exterior black I've realized that I need to go back to some Laredo headlights, or paint my Limited housings. Might as well go for a retrofit while in there.

Looking good! Wish I could find a brush guard for mine, but no luck so far. Eventually I will. Usually do! And yes, definitely go retrofit! As for the wheels for now, you can always just paint them. Went with a low gloss engine paint. Took me a little over a can to do all 4.

Installed a k&n 77 series cold air intake today. Noticeable difference in sound and acceleration. MPG also increased by 2

Got my zombie apocalypse response team sticker on it. And took the entire front end off to replace the belt and tensioner... Stripped out bolt on the tensioner... Just to find out it was the water pump pulley that was squealing...
