Had a tire pressure sensor replaced due to a crack in the valve stem. Whoever designed these expensive litte sensors and valve stems as one piece should be shot. I used an aftermarket sensor with a replaceable stem and had a local tire shop install for me. What a pain.
On a more pleasant note, I started making plans for a homemade belly guard to help protect some of the areas that jeep neglected to cover. I'm actually considering 1 large skid plate that covers evrything from the front suspention, out over the cats, and all the way to the back crossmember before the fuel tank. I think it would be a little stronger than the stock skids, and maybe help a little with gas milage too! Just in the design phase for now, but keep a lookout for a thread on it in the near future.
I had my TPS replaced today. When i got my tires last week the dude told me mine was coroded. Hee said $56 installed he just had to order it. I told him not to and that i could find one cheaper and id bring it to him.
Yeah i was wrong, called him up the next day and had him order it.
Decided to go out wheeling with some buddies and put a little mud on the tires, had a chance to take a great pic of the WK by our swimming hole but thought I would share the pic of my buddies Cherokee getting some air! (btw, I'm 5'10" and the camera was eye level )
I did this today....brand new DuraTrac...pretty much made useless by NC red sticky crappy mud....
