Went on a road trip of about 400 miles. Averaged 20mpg on one whole fill up. And that is actual, not from the overhead display (always wrong). Now if I could get my every day mileage up a little! lol

Diagnosed engine shutdown....... Found out that the 4.0 litre isn't as bullet proof as I thought :-(
Turns out you can grenade the engine.
I used a diagnostic camera and when I looked in from the spark plug hole I found only the top of the piston rod. Where did my piston head go???? Lol

I found the Grey Goose build thread where he installed the Aux jack in the RB1. Does anyone have a more detailed write up with pics?

I want an Aux jack and Sirius! I just got my dub and miss them both!

How often you get out in that area? I haven't found any local WJ's to wheel with.
