Oh, Apple isn't that bad, although there are things I like more. Things like leprosy, genital warts, explosive diarrhea, and hippies. Haha, in all seriousness, I won't debate choices of OS any more than I'll debate politics or religion. Basically, no good can come from those conversations.

No glassing needed. I'll just be doing some clean cutting of the OEM bezel and CNC'ing of new mount/pocket.

Guys just a quick question, does it matter if I use chlorinated or non chlorinated brake cleaner to clean the inside of my rear diff?

My layman's best guess would be non-chlorinated. Not that I knew there was a distinction.

Tomorrow, taking advantage of the positively tropical 43F they are predicting, it will be EGR valve, MAP sensor, plugs, oil, filter, and tire rotation.. and maybe a careful TB cleanup.. to celebrate 90K.

Spent a bunch of money that I don't have today, just to finally try and get my sound system installed. $200 to be exact. Just in speaker wire, 8 gauge amp wiring kit, two 17ft RCA cables, and a line out converter.

Dedicated a whole day to the install, only to run into a ton of problems and now im stuck with my jeep disassembled.

Basically I ran all of the wires so far except the speaker wires. I am installing a two amp setup. One bass with its own amp, and one amp for the speakers. Both placed in the back cargo area of my jeep. We ran all the cables from my battery through the firewall, under all of my trim, all the way to the back.

My problem now is, when I went to wire the first speaker (Drivers door) I also had to run the wire along the whole side of the jeep under the trim, only to find out that there is NO WAY to run the cord through the door harness. All of the stock wiring to the door (speaker, windows, locks etc) are all plugged into door frame instead of being wired through a hole. So now I have to way to wire my speaker wire into my door, unless I drill a damn hole in my door frame, which im not going to do.

So im sitting here, angry, frustrated and tired. With my jeep disassembled in the back yard

Figures, you are using a Samsung. SMH

i don't discuss OS's either, just making a comment on the use of another tablet. I do like a good debate, I just choose not to go there when it comes to Apple haters and Apples eco-wtfe. Clearly, I am not a liberal, nor am I a tree hugger.
