I am planning on heading up to my dad's 12th-14th! I am sure he is wanting to get out and hit some trails too. Maybe we can give Rock Front a try!

I took her out on the beach. She did great. I have a few pictures but they are on Mia's phone and she has no service. Ill get them on when I get a chance. My dog freaking went insane in the sand though. Rolling around, digging, just having a ball. So far so good vacation.

Got them for $670 after tax and installation with my $75 off coupon! Couldn't be happier. It feels so firm, a ton of roll in the steering is gone, and it actually has nice feedback when I try to steer. They are so quiet also!


That looks good. Are they bigger then what you had before? They look like they fill out the wheel well better.

Thanks man, ya they are 255/70/17 vs. 245/65/17. I really love them can't wait for it to snow now. And they do fill up the wheel wells nicely.

Plugs

I changed my spark plugs today. Got 16 from Pep Boys for $24. Did not put dielectric grease on them, nor anti-seize. Chose not to based on all of the reading I've done. The local dealer ship wanted $339 for changing out plugs!

Have 31k miles on my '08 wk and the plugs came out with no problems.

I think I had the most trouble trying to line up the Hemi plastic shroud at the end - that was a pain for some reason.

It's easy to do if you have a bunch of socket extensions and universal and wobble joints. The magnetic sockets helped a lot too - those plugs are in deep.

New plugs, air filter, diff fluids, transfer case fluid, and a fresh oil change. Doing the transmission filter/fluid and radiator flush this week. She's running great!
