I was worried about that I was also throwing around the idea of a custom 1"-1.5" spacer in the back and some longer shocks for better drop

With 240k kms I thought I should change the plugs. I've only had the Jeep for 5 months and have no idea when they were changed last. It hasn't been running right at idle in gear and mileage sucks. I found the center electrode is nearly gone and the gap is 0.080"! I guess somebody got their money out of those plugs.

Gave her an oil change for the first time. Installed a fumoto valve. Also replaced the wipers and did the HIR mod. I also changed the oil in the wife's Civic while I was at it and put a fumoto valve on there as well.

You'll like the Fumoto drain valve. [Actually, what you will like is the lack of mess.]

I'm anal and installed the spring clip over the valve handle (see the Fumoto site instructions). Cheap insurance against Murphy's Law.

Yeah, I put clips on both of them. Like you said, cheap insurance. I just wish the filter was as easily accessible as it was on my WJ. I'm definitely looking forward to the lack of mess!

The ole Hemi hit 130,000 miles today! Also developed a new grind when stopping, but all the brakes are new, so that will be fun to track down!
