I shook my head. He revved his engine and smirked again. I gave in. I flipped one switch and turned my subs on; much louder than his. Flipped another switch and opened the cutout, sending a ball of flame in his direction.

The light turned green and by the time I got to 65 he was waaay behind. We kept going, but once we exceeded the speed limit a bit I slowed down to the speed limit.

I'm a little ashamed of myself but whatever.
That one got a good laugh out of me, haha, well done.

In an effort to reset the computer because I recently changed O2's and haven't noticed any improvement in mileage (I'm hoping for at least 1mpg ), I ended up rounding off one of the ancient terminals that was on my WJ and honestly should have been replaced years ago. So I took the opportunity to put on some marine terminals, no more wiggling the whole thing off the stud everytime! Hah



Also, washed her up for the first time in a month or so, absolutely filthy.

Did the throttle body / iac cleaning, swapped in a spare TPS, sprayed carb cleaner around the manifold / vacuum fittings trying to diagnose idle dips.

Oil change, fuel filter change. First time wrestling with those quick connects. Took a while, but I got it.

Need a muffler: wifes DD (WJ= Wife's Jeep), so I'll need to keep it quiet. Like to get a little more rumble though, just to let that V8 breathe a little better.

"Lay Down Sally" Silverstone Metallic 2001 xj sport 4.0L/AW4/231/8.25 mostly stock.

"Dubyuh" or "Blue Bayou": Patriot Blue 2001 Up-Country WJ Limited 4.7L V8 Quadra Drive: for now known as "Al-Dente" after my wife's "mod".

Not all today, but since I bought my '99 Limited two months ago:

1. New front rotors - Stops alot better
2. New rear pads - " " "
3. Factory CD player - Gotta have my CD's
4. New Power Bass dash speakers - Sounds much better
5. OEM floor mats - The only ones that truly fit
6. Factory hitch - Makes it easier to haul my bike
7. Drain tranny and replace both filters - Shifts better now
8. Hood struts - No longer afraid to kook under the hood

Ain't this fun!!!!!

Bedlined the bumpers, side panels, and grille. Just used a few light coats of spray-on DupliColor. If the wife likes how it looks, we'll paint her WJ too



Oh yeah, and I just completely removed the rocker panel covers...

What stickers and what wheels? Only reason I ask is I sent out some of our stickers to somebody. Lot of people put our stickers on their lip so I was just curious if it was you.

The grill comes off with 4 screws in the top and 3 or 4 screws in the grill. It just comes right out.

Is it broken?

Like pinky said, not that hard... 4 screws up top, 3 below... there are couple of round metal clips in the corners that might give you trouble, but I just snapped mine off... the grille seems to hold fine without them.

hey! I believe yours is an '04 right? if so then your grill is different.. no screws there are clips on the top if you look close and after you get those loose the you lean the grill forward to release the lower clips. if you need a better description just send me a PM cause this one isn't great ha (if it's not an '04 then sorry, I thought it was)
