thats the best i can get for now...from my phone

this will change peoples minds about the "flat" or "semi gloss" colors out there on the wj's this one you almost have to see in person to see the shine of the semi gloss. its almost like a pearl in the paint when you look at it.

Ordered engine oil filter and oil pressure sending unit. Hopefully i'll get them by saturday, so i can do both over the weekend. Hoping to finally change out TC fluid, since new has been sitting in my garage since october
Also cleaned front of the engine. Just sprayed with engine cleaner and hosed off, I want it clean for when i'll change pressure sending unit so i can see it it's still leaking. Plus engine bay could use some cleaning, so i'll propably do a whole engine.
On that note, any suggestions on what to protect from water when i'll do it? Alternator comes to my mind first, battery, fuse box?

LED bulbs came in to replace interior & gauge cluster lights. Now they are sitting in the garage next to the new tie rod ends, rear upper ball joint, transmission filter/fluid, Redline diff fluid, coolant flush stuff, new PCV valve, and 4" lift...

Having a new-to-me house that needs work really cuts into my Jeep time!

HAH! I listened that on my (also iphone) phone speakers and I was like whoah that sounds good... so congrats your Jeep sounds good enough to make iphone speakers reproduce a good exhaust tone... then I listened to it on my monitor speakers on my desktop... HOOOLY crud I remember why I love magnaflow (and the 4.7) so much.

thank you! and it only cost 60 bucks haha. But yea, magnaflow and Borla are i think the best sounding mufflers out there for the 4.7 and Hemi, But borla = too many $$$$

HEEEYYYOOOOOO 700 pages!

Anyways, washed and tried out Liquid Glass. So far I'm pleased with it.

Also gave up using the headlight restoration paste and instead used just run of the mill polish for paint, wow worked 100 times better.
