Did some trouble shooting to find the source of the rattle in the front end. Turns out to be the upper shock mount bushings just like I thought. Passenger side was all chewed up. I ordered what I thought was replacement bushings but they're not the same and I can't find any locally. So I'm contemplating Monroe Sensa-tracs for now. Figured it's easier and cost effective to just replace the whole shock. $25 each after AAP discount code. Going to swap them out in the morning when they open.

Oh yeah, and I finally installed my Addco rear sway bar. Handles like a whole different vehicle. Almost forgot it was a Jeep still lol.

Installed a new PCM; old one crashed at 80,000 miles. Runs like a champ now and Superchips programmer works once again.

Installed my front drive shaft (FINALLY), and did some night wheeling with some local XJs. While I was out I started to roll the dub onto its side but a huge tree branch was sticking out and crashed through the rear quarter window and stopped the jeep from getting its side crushed in

Not all today but recently replaced all interior lights with LED's, got Dorman replacement seat heater elements to install this afternoon and put new Firestone Destination AT 265/70R17 tires on in advance of the 3000 mile roundtrip Christmas Trek Extravaganza to Kansas from San Diego.





Last set of Destination AT's went 70,000 miles, great tires.

Fighting poor mileage but other than that running great for 12 years old and 178K miles.

Also found a nice mount for my new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet that I run the excellent Torque app on.

Where did you find that tablet mount and that cell mount from?

Replaced all 4 shocks. Went a lot easier than the zj, although the zj had 7 more salt filled winters on it too lol.

Finally took pics of my lift parts so I can start a Classifieds ad, unfortunately I don't have enough posts to create a post. Guess I'll be waiting a bit.

Can you guys recommend a similar app for an ipad? I searched it and there seems to be a few out there but what's the closest to the Tourque?

Both were from Fry's, universal tablet windshield/suction cup mount, about $30 as I recall brand is iDEA (was in the iPad accessories area). The phone mount is from Bracketron, it started life as a suction cup/windshield mount but with the tablet mounted like it is I removed the suction cup, applied velcro, then screwed it down with one of the screws that hold the bottom trim panel below the ashtray.

Both work really well, I use the Car Home Ultra app on my Note 3 phone and then Torque on the Note 8 tablet. The Note 8 tablet is WiFi only so if I need a map I either pull it up on the phone but I can tether the tablet to the phone's hotspot if I want to.

Too much tech, but it is fun and cool to watch what's going on in realtime.
