Looked on eBay, there's a ton of cheap overhead computers.

My wj is an 04. Is it possible to swap an older computer to gain the instant mpg function? My xj has it, and it's really great.

Cleaned under the hood today. It looks good. I need to change the pcv valve.

I work on Mopars

Vacumed My Jeep today, put soap into the floor carpets and used a water vacum cleaner to Get it out again. Got it Really clean and smell good, need some time to dry out completly though. Got rid off alot of old stains and dirt.

Also found both inside of My front rims full of oil, thinking it is both front axles seals shoot. My cv boots Are new and was changed with My front axles and cv joints 5 Months ago. It Looks like oil not grease.

I love My Jeep.

Had the most rediculous day today... We were about ready to head to tahoe from up in the forests of north cali and my starter decides to go bad... Long story short, the closest starter was @ the napa 45 miles away and there was no car rental business, taxi cabs, buses etc... There did happen to be a uhaul across the street so I ended up renting a fullsize uhaul truck to go get the new starter, since it was all they had... My girl was rotfl when I came back to the jeep with a ****ing uhual... It was histerical! Anyways got the starter swapped and made it to tahoe... What a day...

Changed brake pads and rotors all around.
Also changed the tailgate lock actuator, which I got from a junkyard for $10. The local dealership quoted $235 for it... WTF???

My Jeep uses the gas your hybrid saves.
