Then I let it cool down and made it home at normal 200 degrees. But when I got home my upper hose was all sucked up. Air maybe??

That sucks.

However I'm sure you'll be fine. It seems the overwhelming majority of people that have issues dropping valve seats have hit the area in red on the temp gauge one or multiple times.

Took a pic of it with some HDR effects for my iPad wallpaper and then picked up some recovery gear I ordered off of Amazon. A quick stop at Home Depot for a smoking deal on a new, and quiet, 12v pump with glow in the dark pressure gauge for 15 bones. Score!

I don't think it was too bad. It definitely didn't get to the red. Think I caught it in time but I guess I'll be bleeding the air out if the system little research shows that the hose blowing off like that could be a new rad cap. That is the second time it's happened and the rad is only 2 years old so I doubt it's blocked

So autozone rad cap that's on there now shows 20 pounds and I just called Chrysler and OE is at 17. Hopefully that's why I'm blowing my upper off and attest to the only by mopar parts debate.

Put this in and love it. Bluetooth built in and comes with a cable for iPod directly and option for aux in front. http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/products/22...00BT/page.html

Kenwood looks good... this only has one front USB port... did you want one in back too?

I think WJ's take 6-1/2" 2-way speakers in the rear doors. I'm not a speaker expert so I go by reviews... those look good though.

I witnessed/performed a miracle today. I removed drivers side exhaust manifold and all broken studs and bolts came right out! (4.7) Tomorrow the manifold will get re-surfaced, and I'll get new gasket and hardware from the dealer and then put it all back together! What fun. Both back studs were broke. Manifold is warped about .020",

Painted gas tank cover/skid plate (whatever its called) with black rust converter (3 coats). Huge improvement already over the rusted out crap. Ill probably paint it with a stronger material before winter.
