Went to refuel and go for a cruise; the "Miles Till Empty" on the dash computer was jumping all over hell. I put just over 50 miles on and I went from 412 miles to go from the gas station to 397 miles to go by the time I parked it. Yeah, we got some long hills here; went up & down them.

Just saying it was jumping around like crazy since I changed my fluids.

Must be all the power in my Power Wire.

That was a joke but I did just change my differential, transfer case fluids and oil.

Taken from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AwW...ure=plpp_video

This is a way beefier transfer case than what I got. Plus, mine had a counter-weight on mine that I had to unbolt first.

Got busted racing a SRT4 neon (full exhaust, cold air, tune, and a 75 shot of spray). We stopped middle of the highway (dark, no one around... We thought!) he beat me by about 5 cars, then the blue lights came on! I had 3 other guys and a full tank of fuel so not bad for stock!

Great driving awards = 96 in a 65 (first read was 107 but he "gave us a break" and a C&I for drag racing! I tried the ole "but sir it's a Cherokee" but it was a no go.

It probably didn't help that my brakes were literally smoking like hell when he came to my window (107 down to 60ish in a HURRY!)

Agreed, I usually take out my CTS-V but it was kind of a funny situation. The guy I raced has a nice T/A but the SRT4 is his daily driver, So we were just joking about racing my jeep... It did good but I knew we would lose! The cop part just sucked.

No. Because the largest hill here in the part of mid-Michigan is probably 10 ft, I don't even remember using it for a long time. Even so, I checked it when I found the rotors frozen.

Been thinking overnight: Could there be a ridge inside the top hat drum braking surface for the e-brake shoes? Sort of like the one on the rotor outside diameter where the pads stop. If that were the case, it might prevent them from coming off. Anybody experience this?

I read somewhere that taking a bolt and threading it through the back to push the rotor out works very well if that makes sense

Here is my baby! It's stock right now but it still gets the job done! Once I get the Cherokee lined out I will begin mods on the car!
