Yeah we tried that first but as soon as I tore the front cover off of the diff I could see the wires were broken... I replaced the solenoid just to be safe!

You can probably change it without dropping the dif like I did, it might be worth checking the next fluid change.

On a side note, having the solenoid replaced I am getting 4-6 mpg higher now.
Its funny you mention mileage because mine gets 9mpg around town and best I see on highway is 17-19

I was getting about 12-13mpg but now it's hitting 16-17 but that's on some big hills so I'll see what the true mileage is on the highway tomorrow. I'd be really happy with 17-19 out of that Hemi lol

Well,
I got bored, decided to plasti-dip my stock chrome wheels. (I hate chrome)
Im on my second coat.

My plan was to make them flat black with silver nuts, and the center "Jeep" cap silver with the writing in black.
Its also like 30 degrees outside, so im painting them in my garage, which is probably around 40. So hopefully they turn out ok.

I did mine that way but didn't clean the corners well enough so they peeled in a couple days. Looked awesome tho.

Damn those look really nice like that. I didn't leave the ring on the edge. I painted that.

I also like your wheels a lot better, my 2008 has a different design, I'm not too fond of.

I washed them pretty good first.... but I didn't get in there with rubbing alcohol or anything. I really hope they don't peel on me, that would suck a little.

Alright, finished the plasti-dipping of my wheels today. I think it turned out pretty good.

The plasti-dip of the actual wheels was easy, although I did quite a few coats just to be sure that not silver shined through in the inner parts of the wheel.

The harder part was the center cap. i wanted to keep it silver but paint the "jeep" logo black. My first idea was to just plasti-dip the whole center cap, then take a razer blade and cut out the letters and peel the rest off. That didn't end up working like planned, and the razer wouldn't cut the plasti-dip well, it just kind of pulled it off. So my second plan was to tape off everything except the "jeep" logo, which took a good 30 minutes of real fine painters tape and razer work. But in the end, when I pulled off the tape, it still pulled the letters off with it. So I just went basic, and took some flat black paint, and a paint brush and I brushed a few layers of black into the "jeep" logo of the center cap, then I sprayed some clear coat matte on the center caps, to remove some of the chrome mirror finish. That actually worked quite well, and made the chrome cap look more like normal silver.

Here are some final pics, it was dark out when I finally got everything back together, so I will try to get a daylight picture tomorrow.
