I changed my oil sensor last week and broke the top of the plug while removing the red crappy clip thing. Now it's just plugged in with nothing holding it in place but thick grease.
Is this self adhesive stuff or do u use a heat gun or what? Looks great!! Key fob had to be the hardest, right?

I think this is my 2nd favorite mod so far. My favorite is pretty lame, the LED's under the mirrors. When I do a lift I'm sure that will pop up to #1 on my list and everything else will move down a notch.

Not really sure what to wrap yet. I ordered a 48 x 36" sheet so I've got quite a bit left. I don't wanna go too crazy though.

Thanks again Thomahawk.

Check out Thomahawk's Interior bezels trim thread. It's a few years old but it's a good one.

The Fob was challenging. I think I'm going to redo mine not that I have a little more experience with this stuff. The Fob is small and you have to work quick with this stuff once it's heated up otherwise you'll need to reheat. I used a Harbor Freight heat gun I picked up for like $10 on sale.

As far as the trim, I didn't actually remove it from the Jeep. I would have but I was afraid I was going to break the trim. I tried to remove it a few times and was scared so I stopped lol

I used a Lil Chizler to tuck the wrap into the crevices after I heated it up. For the faces, I just used my hand working from the middle to the outside while I applied the wrap. It wasn't a bad job to do.

I was thinking about the window hinges or the light cover trim piece thing above the license plate (where the back window button is). I was also thinking maybe the fuel door or the grill as well, I liked the way Thomahawks came out. I don't wanna give it a ricer look so I'm not sure yet.

I actually used it for a bit of 4wd action. I've been volunteering at a shelter where I go on Saturday to take some dogs for walks. With all of the snow and cold temps, their parking lot was a complete ice rink. There's a small driveway that goes to the back side of the kennels right off of the parking lot. After watching 2 morons get stuck while trying to do a 3pt. turn-around in the lot, and someone else got stuck on the top of the driveway to the backside of the kennels, they all started to look at me, like I'm supposed to help or something.

I back up 75ft, crank the steering wheel hard right, slip the t-case into 4wd part time and punch it, making my own new trail down the side of the hill and back onto the driveway. When dog walking was over, some dude with an f150 got sideways on the lower driveway and got stuck. His front end wasn't working, all you could hear was a jaw clenching grinding noise going on as he floored it trying to get more stuck. I stuck the hitch into the receiver, put the shackle through the hole where the ball would normally go, got out the snatch strap and proceeded to spin the ferd back onto the road, then I re-attached the tow strap to his front tow loop and dragged him up the driveway.

Grand Cherokee for the win!

Aye. One of my favs. Looks factory fresh. Love the subtle mods. Wish I had 04 two piece grill so I could try it. Im going redo my grill at some point but it will be more drastic . . Something like Oakley Jeep w/o the Chevy symbol. JK. LoL.

Changed out a bad oil pressure sensor with the mopar factory replacement. That should have been easy but the PO turned the nut part of the old sensor so I wound up having to use vice grips to get it out. But it works now so w00t for me.

Also replaced the resonator box with a brand new one from the dealership.....About $185 after tax. I didn't like spending that much for a plastic box but I haven't been able to find any at a pick and pull and I got tired of looking. Replacement took all of 10 minutes and now my jeep runs quieter and is breathing filtered air again.

Since I've been running it for a few months with a broken resonator and unfiltered air going into the engine I'll be doing a seafoam treatment on it in the next couple of days.

Oh yeah I also put a new set of A/Ts on her a few days ago. Cooper Discoverer ATP 245/65/r17. (Stock ride height, no lift at all).

Thomahawk have you ever done a Seafoam treatment on your WJ? Or can you even get Seafoam in Norway? I've heard it works wonders for lifter ticking and things of that nature, also to clean out your engine.

1/3 of the can in the gas tank, 1/3 of the can into the engine oil, and 1/3 of the can you suck up into your vac line going into the engine.

Anyone ever heard of such a thing?!
Why doesn't he just buy a Jeep. Sounds cheaper. Haha!
