I swap out the air in my tires every time I go wheeling!

And what did I do to my WK today? Nothing exactly, but I just spent a lot of money on it!

This whole change the air thing sounds like that time we told this high school kid that he needed new muffler bearings. He went and ask his local dealer. That was hilarious.

My older rubber mats were falling apart on me, so I put in some new Husky Liner floor mats in the front. They fit like a glove and are well worth the $60. Looked into Weather Techs, but I really couldn't justify twice the cost for a similar product. Now hopefully they hold up well.

38? My door jam says 33 so that's what I filled mine to. What's everyone usually run at? When I had my new destinations installed last week, they only filled them to 28...I was surprised they were that low.

The tire place filled mine to 38. Ran them at 38 for a while and backed them down to 36 the other day just to see if it would change anything. Last thing I want to do is burn out my tread prematurely.

Lifetime warranty on a part you replace every year eh?

Looks pretty good, Its to dark for the finished pic but here are some prep pics.

yep - replacing it before it goes obviously bad (leaking, bearings making terrible noise, loose shaft) is on me. But if it does go bad before I have a chance to swap it out - then it's on them. This is one of those parts that's cheap enough to replace that way. Water pumps start going bad way before you see any sign of it. Just me being OCD.

Installed a new battery from AutoZone. 8 year warranty. 3 year free replacement. 175$. Price kinda hurt but it paid off with warranty and free replacement. It was the Duralast Gold also.
