I think the hose is missing completely, someone got a pic of it going to the dif?
You should see what remains of the hose or the nipple it attaches to on top of the differential. Just crawl under the Jeep and look at the front axle from behind the driver's front tire.
Found out the ECM on the $900 WJ was DOA, I had it narrowed down to either that or the SKIM. I noticed SKIM light was constantly illuminated and CEL was not on with the igntion on. I also wasn't getting any reading from my fuel level and battery voltage gauges, the other thing was the fuel pump wasn't running either.
I pulled the SKIM apart and noticed the capacitor on the circuit board looked a little discolored and bulgy. Went ahead and replaced it with one from Radio Shack for $1.50, but unfortunately that made no difference with the no start condition.
Swapped out the ECM for the one in my wife's WJ and got my dash to come alive again. Just to double check I put the ECM out of the $900 WJ into my wife's and had a dead dash. Found a used ECM at the local wrecking yard and tossed it in, decided to try starting it and it ran for a few seconds then the SKIM shut it down.
Just need to get the used ECM flashed for the correct VIN and it should be up and running.

Just did front brakes and rotors. I really do hate Chrysler and whoever thought putting the bolts where they are. Simply replacing the pads was easy, getting the rotors off was much more fun. Good news is my son and I got it done and now no more squealing and superb stopping. I think of it as a win.

I disagree with wasting money. I will run 91 shell for a bit here and there, and been testing mileage vs price. in tracking mileage I typically break even or get better mileage. What I do gain regardless is that the engine runs much better and definitely more responsive. Part of that is supposedly due to it not having ethonal in it.
The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
