Today I'm repainting my grille insert, looks like the previous owner tried to clean it with brake fluid or something! No color changes, just the same satin aluminum color.

I'm home again so I did a wash and wax. WOW almost forgot how well the WJ cleans up. I was going to take pictures but I didnt finish until after it was dark out. Maybe going to test for more rubbing/flex and take some poser shots tomorrow. I have a sinking feeling my 32s are rubbing on the fender liners right where the windshield washer tank is. Might have to do a ZJ relocated washer bottle mod.

No, they will fit, just won't be able to turn.

I replaced hood struts, TPS and driver window regulator. My baby finally doesn't hit 2300 at startup, jump when shifting or stutter shift at speed.
As soon as my window popped the other day I let off the switch so the cable wouldn't get borked, but it still happened. I tried to re-spool it but it was too far gone, so I bought a new assembly.
On the docket for sometime this week(hopefully tomorrow) will be the dual zone blend door repair, replacing the clockspring and replacing the u-joints in my front driveshaft.

So I took the family's Prius (not near as fun to drive as my Jeep) to go pick up a pair of new speakers. I found some inexpensive 2-way Pioneer's to put in there.



Got everything all changed out and buttoned up pretty quickly. And they sound just as good as stock if not a tad better. I'm just glad to have all my speakers working again.
I need to fix my dash tweeters as neither one works I need to figure out why. Just another thing to add to the list of things to do to my wj and I have had it just 2 weeks now. I have two small pieces of vac hose I found that I have to replace as they are cracking.

Going to the dealer in the morning to see what ALL is leaking, i told them im leaking from behind the oil filter its pretty bad, 500 miles and my dip stick says to add oil. Filter is tight and not a double gasket. I know my ps pump is leaking but i really care more about the oil leak. I would like to be able to park on the drive way and not worry about oil marks every second. Any ideas i should mention cause they think its just the ps pump but i know its oil too
