I'll assume its an older home if the toilet needs fixin, so it never ends.


I noticed my oil pressure is 50psi. Great!
Only problem is it is while the engine is NOT RUNNING!!

just be careful backing up in the meantime! don't want that thing to catch on something and rip it off!

It would take quite an impact to tear it off. I would be more worried about what it would do to the item it struck. With Shackle mounts holding on front, and other screws into the fenders, it stays put. Here is a Iceland Bumper vs a Honda:

I thought about 285's but I did not want to cut the bumpers and deal with them rubbing. My 265's don't rub at all.

Yeah i'm a little worried bout rubbing too,but i will be running KOR 3/4 spacers and an iceland front bumper and was thinking thar might be enough to clear 285's with maybe alittle trimming on the rear but not really sure.My lift is IRO 4in. LA dont know if that would help,maybe bumpstop the heck out of it but want to go offroad some with it to just nothing to hardcore cause it's a DD.

Diagnosed my shake when accelerating. 99% sure it's the front DS.

Still can't figure out what's clunking in the rear. But i'm strongly considering taking out my rear sway bar and shocks just so I can have the chance of driving with a quiet Jeep for the first time in..... well, ever.

Still can't figure out why my front sway bar link keeps clunking. Probably just gonna get quick discos.

Ordered all 4 front ball joints from kolak. It's time to get started on step 1 of "Operation do Preventative Maintenance Way Too Late." Step 2 consists of control arm bushings. But I'm thinking it'll just be easier/cheaper to go up to LAs and either 4.5" or 6" rather than trying to just keep throwing stock parts back at the Jeep.

Went to Mccdonalds drive thru and no one would answer at the speaker. I drove around and the lady at the window said "your Jeep is too high off the ground and the sensor won't read that you are there" hahaha epic.
