Got some new tires and finally installed my OME. If I knew it was going to add this much lift, I would have gotten bigger tires.

Looks good with those tires.

Did diffs and T case this weekend.
Diffs got Royal Purple, no added modifyer, says it's in it on the bottle and my mechanic buddy who rebuilds diffs swears any synthetic will be fine with no modifyer...
Rear diff cover came off, sprayed a whole can of brake cleaner over everything as I rotated the tires and cleaned with a toothbrush, let it dry, used black rtv sealant on the cover..
T-case got ATF+4, that's what my manual calls for but I have seen elsewhere Mopar T-Case fluid is called for....
Put a half a bottle of the liquid Seafoam into the crank case and gas tank, will do oil change in a few days...

I don't think being synthetic will matter, but if it already has LSD additives in it then I think it would be fine. I couldn't find plain fluid when I did mine so I didn't add any modifier to the LSD fluid and it seems fine. I'll be doing the front again in the spring so I'll look for regular fluid and add the additive then.

Blacked out the Chrome. Was thinking of painting the bottom molding the same silver as the body.

My '10 WK 5.7 goes to the shop in 12 days for a Superlift it install. Working on wheel and tire options in the meantime. I'll post pics when it's done. My WJ is sold but it's good to be back!

Spent the week prepping the rear frame and chassis components for application of rust treatment and undercoating. Finished it off today with a new set of Bilstien 5100s.

2008.5 CRD Laredo North Edition with 177,000 km is replacing 2005 Pontiac Vibe with 420,000 km

Just completed the safety inspection for ownership transfer and it only needs new tires and a pinion seal. Cost of vehicle was $9500 CDN and I think the tires/seal is going to be about $800 taxes in. I picked this one over more extravagant models due to its lack of rust in comparison to more expensive options. I think I can get about 5 years out of it but time will tell.

Will be taking delivery on Wednesday if all goes to plan. I think the transmission in my car will fail on Monday by the way it is behaving. Maybe I cut things a little too close on this one...I just need another 1000 km out of the old girl.

5 years? My first grand cherokee was a 95 5.2 and I had that for ten years and 3 cross country trips. I should have kept it!

That's an Ontario Vibe with 420k? How the heck is it so clean? We've got a Matrix (same car underneath) with 180k on it so it's good to know it should be capable of doubling its current mileage and still going.

This is/was the best car I will ever own, Toyota used very good materials for the fasteners, exhaust, suspension, rocker guard, seam sealer, etc. I believe they are building the Teslas in the old Vibe/Matrix factory now.

Not only is it an Ontario car, it is a Sudbury car which should normally be avoided at all costs . It does have some rust but it is hidden behind the plastic rocker covers and the windshield is getting ready to fall out due to the top window frame being rotted out. You can't see it well in the photos but there is no clear coat on either bumper or the hood and the windshield is caulked in...it is a total rat mobile. The front bumper has so much paint damage from road grit that it has worn down to a white inner layer on the drivers side. Oh yeah, I have to drive with the windows down because of the exhaust leaks... I should have parked it at 400,000 km but that' still quite good.
