I installed factory 2003 Headlights with the clear turn signals in my 2000 with LED marker and turn signals. The front of the Jeep looks much cleaner.

I've been looking into buying a boat myself. Would've been real nice this past weekend at bud bash of Houghton Lake.

Only problem is I have nowhere to work on it.

I pulled this around all weekend. We got laughed at on the water. :/

i really dont care what people think though. I've gotten more heavy into fishing within the past year, and just to get out into the bay and into places where you cant from land would be nice.

Hi. It 4.0 L gazoline Engine, Tires like on the picture Goodyear all terrain, might switch to mud. Have also Pirelli All season scorpio... Are those better for snow? I do have synthetic old...not sure about anti freeze.... I should be fine till november then I will get minus 30. daily might get even 45....

Is there any heating system to the engine. There is a company AEV which put hemi on jeeps and does other stuff in the US...they include some engine heating on its service..... But my car is here in Paris.... What who'd be a problem to start in extreme cold minus 40, how about transmission fluid (automatic transmission) brake fluid, how there work in such a temp

Looks like Google translation didn't do a good job, but i'll try to answer all your questions. Basically all your questions seem to refer to preparing your Jeep for cold winter conditions --

Tires - for lots of snow, you're better off with all-season tires, with lots of siping. BFG is good, but i prefer and recommend General Grabber AT2 and Firestone Destination AT. Since you're in Europe, I'd also look into the Nokian Vatiia AT (I personally have the Vatiiva muds and they're awesome)

Oil - the recommended is 10w30 and yes, synthetic is fine. but for colder conditions, you may want to consider something lighter such as 5w30.

Antifreeze - use whatever is recommended for your Jeep. if you haven't done so recently, do a complete flush and fill with new coolant.

Engine heater - Mopar actually makes an engine block heater for the 4.0L. part no. 82201506, and cost about $40USD. Here is one place that sells
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/mopar-e...-82201506.html

Brake fluids -- use whatever Jeep recommends, which is DOT 3

Transmission fluids -- again use what Jeep reommends, which ATF+4, and synthetic is fine too, but not necessary.

Miscellaneous -- don't forget to also check and change the fluids in your transfer case (ATF+4) and your front & rear differentials.

If you don't already know about it, WJJEEPS.com is a great resource for your Jeep's care and maintenance.
