I'll start this one off with a funny story.

Going out on a date tonight and didn't want to make a bad impression by showing up in the RustBucket (YJ) so I decided to tackle my WK's starter problem. Ended up finding out that one of the bolts for the plastic splash guard was gone, and I broke another one taking it off. So now that is sitting in the junk pile in the basement. Checked the starter wires and they were all tight, wiggled them a little and it started right up.

Went to the gas station, got some gas, started up again. So I took it to the car wash.... (the kind where it is on a little rail almost). So I pay and walk outside. **** looked like hell. There were 5 Mexicans trying to push my Jeep while one inside was trying to start it. Meanwhile there was a lady screaming because her Jaguar Coupe was about 3 feet away from the back of my Jeep and coming out fast. Thank god one of those speedy guys jumped in the jaguar and hit the brakes just in time. I ended up opening the hood, pulling on the positive wire, and it started up. Got home and i cycled it 4 times and it was fine.
Wow, that was nice of em to do that. In my town the people would just stand and watch.

As most know I removed my bull bar and air-dam. It will be missed. And doing an oil change on the XJ as soon I get back from my camping trip.

I have had my WK about 7 weeks now.

Since I got her, I have had a class 3 Reese hitch installed to tow my 16ft boat around and added a set of wheel locks to the rims.

While she had almost everything, she did not have a navigation system, so, I bought a Garmin Nuvi 1350 with 4.3" touchscreen display which is very cool & user friendly.

I have a set of custom camo seat covers (front & rear) on order which should be in this week - already have a camo steering wheel cover.

I also purchased a 4yr 48,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, so, I don't think I will be doing much to it mechanically - don't want to risk voiding the warranty out.

After the seat covers come in, I may look into a ROLA roofrack to add to my factory roof rack.

Just went out and grabbed a K & N air filter for $52.00 and put it in, just so I could say I did something TODAY.

Just drove it a couple of miles locally, hard to tell with such a small sample and I seldom put my foot in the gas tank.

Changed the front differential fluid today and went wheeling at the local spot. Still need to get a road force balance, these chrome clad wheels are a ***** to get balanced correctly.

Bought but not yet installed a new pair of 9005s, have a pair of 9006s waiting too. Mounted up the new Thule 887XT boat loader though! Like it a lot. We ordered a second right away as vendors are raising their shipping rates. Speaking of which, gas lept overnight to 4.269/gal. Couple cents higher at the major stations.
