Houston Jeepers

Guys/Gals--
Anyone headed to any local parks this weekend? Was thinking one of the following; General Sam's, Creekside Edge, or Down South Offroad. Just seeing if anyone else was having the same bug with all this nice weather?

6 million people in the greater Houston area, and no one has a Jeep?

Wave! Sorry that last post was built up frustration from the fact that in this section of JF there are more posts about San Marcos and Midland and other muchhhhhhh smaller towns than from Houston people It seems like a city this size there would be more.

Never mind. Ill just post it. It is from my build thread. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/...o-4x4-1332758/

"They cannot figure out why the warning lights are on. Install is done. Their partner jeep dealership was closed so couldn't read the computer. Ideas?

Attachment 352206

It drives great. Same as factory. Brake check said could be abs sensors not plugged in but I doubt that. Or a cycle of ignition on and off multiple times.

Dealership said a speed sensor went bad and it just affects other systems like that. Seems odd but whatever. I came home to eat since it will be about another hour before it is done. I will get an in depth explanation upon pickup.


Thy replaced the speed sensor most likely broken by the install shop. "Under warranty". I don't care. It is fixed now and good thing cause it is raining!"


Basically, I arrived to the shop to pick it up and they said the lights in the pic above were on and do not know why. I checked the forums and nobody else had the issue including thesiltsurfer who had it installed at the same time. I went to demontrond jeep, their dealership to take Jeeps to, and they were closed even though TTW told me they would be open. I called a couple places and they said just could be a cycle of the ignition or battery disco. Tried all those and no dice. next day I took it to Tomball Jeep where I bought my WK2 and after a couple hours they found a broken ABS sensor in the rear. They said they could not prove TTW broke it but most likely so. I took it back to TTW to tell them and they, the owner, just did not care. No apology, nothing to try and remedy the situation. Nothing. It was covered under warranty so I was only out some gas money and time but still...offer an apology or something. I didn't want anything free just someone to take responsibility. The actual tech that installed it was cool. he tried and tried to find the problem before I showed up and I even helped. He was just as confused and wanted to get it fixed. The owner, just wanted my money. When I got home from it being fixed I noticed they did not give me back my bwoody links. So when I went back to tell them about the ABS sesnor I asked for them back and gave me a dumbfounded look. They then took me in the back and picked them out form the scrap metal pile. I may never need them but I like to keep all my stock parts. Especially when it had less than 800 miles at the time. The parts are still flippin brand new!! I will only return there for warranty work on what they did otherwise I won't go there for anything. All in all, the owner is a jerk and a typical crooked-salesman only interested in the money. The mechanic (his name I forget) that did mine was a decent guy. In all fairness, this was their first WK2 lift but still...

I'm in Houston too. Moved down here last April. I don't know many places to go down here besides the coast. I heard about Down South but havent had a chance to make it over there yet.
