Fixed the brake lights at the lift gate. It was just a fused bulp.

Also thinking how to fix my differential problem, I've already posted a thread with a subject "Differential Problem".

Well...painting the bumper/fascia for the third time...this time I will primer it with plastic primer...then paint it black.

The grill will be painted too, this time I took the time to sand it and primer it. The bottom grill was the test pilot, it has a rubberized coat on it..Rustoleam Undercoating.

The grill insert will now match the inferno red color of the WJ...it is currently red...

Headed out for picnic with family only fir the bastage lump to decide today was good day for rear brake calipers to stick a bit.
Had to watch family drive off in another car while I sat with this piece of cheap unreliable junk money sink lump ,waiting for it too cool down so I could go home.

Land Rover never seemed so appealing right now :/

I still love our 2008 Land Rover LR3 V8 HSE. Haha. The air suspension system and all the off road capabilities is incredible

Go for it, but if it breaks down your wallet will beg for mercy. I would buy a range rover if oem parts were inexpensive and readily available but usually you have no better option then to go to the dealership. Unless its brand new, expect it to be in the shop once a month.

Hey thanks! Your oil usage is why gas is over $4/gallon........j/k

Get that **** fixed!

If mine starts leaking I'm going to be pissed, if I wanted something that leaked oil I would have bought an import.

New WJ Overland

Just bought my new WJ two months ago, it didn't come with roof rails so I bought a set off one from the local salvage yard for $20 and painted them to look like the freedom edition. After buying the jeep I had a new set of tires put on, the wheelcaps broke in the process so I machined new wheel caps out of aluminum and press fit them in. Then I bought a sticker set off ebay and stuck them on. So far that's my only work done to it. Also I had to replace my oil pressure sending unit one week in, apparently a common problem, and replaced all of the u-joints in the drive shaft for good measure.

After buying the jeep I had a new set of tires put on, the wheelcaps broke in the process so I machined new wheel caps out of aluminum and press fit them in, I made them overlay the front to cover up some peeling from the center of the rim. Then I bought a sticker set off ebay and stuck them on. So far that's my only work done to it. Also I had to replace my oil pressure sending unit one week in, apparently a common problem, and replaced all of the u-joints in the drive shafts for good measure.
