Used the winch to get it out of this....doesn't look like much but it was enough to swallow 2/3 of the driver side wheel it put me on a weird angle so I couldn't even open the driver door.

Had been down this particular trail before and though I knew this was there I actually thought it was farther down. Big mud hole covered in a sheet of ice and snow.

Decided to go for a Sunday drive and some ******* had to ruin it by throwing something out their window at me.

Nice buddy. Digging the headlights. How'd you make the spacer?

I got the cargo LED mod done. The LED's I have are not as bright as I'd originally thought but they serve their purpose well. I used a relay, and a powered switch so I could choose when to turn them on and off. I'm glad with how they came out. (btw these cell phone pics don't really do the lights justice, they're much brighter than they look)





You can see in this one the red switch. It lights up when the lights are turned on. I took into account that having a little flimsy switch sticking out of the cargo sidewall was probably not a good idea, as it would eventually get smashed. So I tucked it in a crevice right where the window molding begins. This way it can't be hit or bumped, but is still easily accessible.

I was thinking the same thing for.the switch actually I was thinking right next to the window. In the window frame out of the way. Thumbs up!

Its just not ment to be for my jeep to get anywhere near 16MPG on the interstate. New plugs, clean throttle body, and fresh oil on a 250mile trip was 14.9 mile per Gal. So pissed. Hemi with a 2 inch lift and 265's should not be that bad I wouldnt think. Correct me if I am wrong but I feel I should at least get 16 mpg.

Took a 400 mile road trip to Portland OR yesterday and played with my new Diablo Intune. It was a bit windy, but my mostly stock 05 WK HEMI got 16.3 with the mpg tune and MDS on, and 16.4 with the MDS off running with the cruise at 69 mph. On the way back I ran 92 octane super and the appropriate performance tune. And even though the CEL came on, I went up to 18.3 mpg with a definite improvement in performance.
