Well, if I had run through some leaves a felt a thumpity-thump (no disrespect or fun being made of the situation) , I would have gotten out to see what I hit. I have three girls, two in college, now, and a teenager, but I remember when they used to love to play in the leaves, but we would never let them go near the street. I realize that you can walk inside for a minute thinking nothing will happen, but it does. It's a sad situation all around. Nothing would be more painful than the loss of a child, much less two.

I FINALLY, finally, finally got around to building the extender cable for my Mopar Integration kit last weekend and installed it this morning. I hooked my iPad up to it and it works perfectly. I can raise/lower the volume and flip through the songs using my steering wheel buttons. I still have all the previous functions of CD and CD-changer. I can now flip through AM, FM, CD, CD changer, and Satellite/aux. Which is the iPad/3.5 mm jack function.
I had to hide it under the center console, because that was the only place it would fit. I ran the cables out of the side, below the cubby, so that any passenger could also reach it.

So after all of that I ended up ripping my Air Dam off of the bottom of the Dub, and I'm wondering if this skid mounts in the same spot where the dam was?

I gave my big guy an oil change and discovered a coolant drip underneath the passenger side. Fun day.

I think it mounts behind the air dam. I don't think it would have saved yours.

Damn, well I wasn't too worried about the air dam, just was hoping to replace it with something sturdier.

Ummm, nothing....But I did run a trail that I have been avoiding since I bought my WJ after watching several youtube vids. I continue to be surprised and amazed at what this WJ will do with everything stock (including tires) like mine is. I watched a vidya with a stock wj on stock non-ATs climb a trail fairly easily that a Toyota...whatever their midsized suv is called 4wd with ATs was only able to get halfway up and I said You know what I bet the old black beauty could do that so off I went. (that was before the beers of course LOL)

I also need to replace part of the intake...I forget what it's called but it fits over the throttle body.....Dangitt I can't remember what it's called.....Diffuser or volumizer or something like that....LOL Too many beers on a Saturday night watching the game.

Brought it home! Traded mt 97 tj for a 2004 wj. Also ordered a pioneer radio with bluetooth and ipod connectivity to replace the stocker. Super excited and time to start saving for lift and tires.

Yesterday I replaced the waterpump (old one was leaking). Replaced Idler and tensioner pulleys. Replaced serpentine belt, lower radiator hose, flushed cooling system several times and added the correct GO-5 anti-freeze. Repaired (JB weld) the plastic lower portion of the air filter box that the PO ripped out for reasons unknown, then I replaced the air filter. Changed the oil and filter. Reattached lower portion of front bumper cover (hanging down) to the sheetmetal bracket. Repaired the broken grill (JB weld). Started at 9am and finished at 9pm, a long day for me. This Jeep has "Whiskey dents" on all 4 sides but no rot what so ever. Today I'll rattle can the dents where the paint is missing before the winter salt turns them into big holes.
