Put the Superchips back in. Now that I've ran 5 tanks with the winter blend fuel and stock tuning I'll do the same with the 87 tune. We'll see how the mpg does. Not looking for huge improvements at all...just a test. However anything is better than the last 5 average of 13.17mpg lol.

I showed up a transmission repair man.....felt good to see his eyes pop out when I explained to him (from a woman) all about the quad drive and how you CAN drive without a front drive shaft and on how easy it was to remove and he could stick his $300.00 quote cause I could do it myself with a 8mm wrench, a small pump(for the oil), and a allan key....and I give all the thanks to everyone on here with there help to make that happen........

2 days ago - Installed new custom seat covers from CarCoversPlanet. Black with "a different color" insert.

Dropped it off last night to get vinyl wrapped, from Flame Red to...a different color. :-) Before / After pics to follow.

I put my new Flowmaster Super 44 muffler, I kept the stock cat. converter and changed the muffler only for aggressive sound reasons, no gains were intended. The sound is so sweet with Zero drone noise while cruising.

And I had codes for the four O2 sensors (P0051, P0141, P0151, P0152 P0161), and rough idle, checked the harness for short circuit but it was ok, so I ordered one Mopar O2 sensor, the one sets upstream of the cat. which is on the passenger side, they had sent me the one upstream of the cat but on the driver side, both are the same but the wire for the passenger side supposed to be longer, so I had to splice my new 77 USD sensor wire and extend it, so I extended the wire, plugged it, disconnected the battery for five minutes to clear the codes and check engine light, then started it up, then drove it for 100 mile, now it idles better and no check engine or fault codes so far. Just one advise, if you wanna buy the Mopar O2, it is better to buy the Denso O2 sensor, because both are Denso and exactly the same sensor but different packaging and the for sure price, the denso is around 50-60 USD cheaper.

Trying to get a photo up.. "plasti-dipped" the stock rims matte black on my 04 WJ HO, tinted the front windows, and put some AVS window visors on for the winter. Then of course the WJ got a nice bath haha

Stripped the tint off of the front windows to pass inspection.

Did you not keep all that stuff from your previous WJ? Thought you had stripped it to virtually a shell before you sold it!

Sent from the Dark Side using only the Force.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

Well...my blend doors have graduated from minor moans and groans to the sounds one would make from having one to many White Castle sliders. I suspect that's my final warning before they take a crap on me lol.

I sold my 03 overland. Sad day, but it had to happen. I keep hearing "you can get another one SOME DAY". I don't quite believe it! :-(
