This is what happens when I cut my thumb in the shop and don't take the time to go get a bandaid.

Hit a trash can on the way back from work, got some scuffs and and a bad attitude. Still mad but now it gives me an excuse for an 08-10 bumper. Prepped for a weekend trip up to Yosemite, San Francisco, Monterey, and Santa Cruz

Why would you want the 08-10 bumper? Just curious.

Let my girlfriend take it to work because she came home last night and her civic is making some funny noises. I'm thinking about buying her a Grand Cherokee, maybe a ZJ. Of course, I can't let her get a V8 because I only have the V6

Haha, my wife normally drives a Dodge Nitro, but she likes to borrow the GC whenever she can. For some reason I always notice my average MPG's have dropped after I get it back...

I've been getting a "Transmission Over Temp" warning showing up in the evic on my 05 limited wk. also when it happens it seems to shift sluggishly, late, and like its unsure of what gear to be in. Any suggestions of how to fix it before I just drop it off at the stealership tomorrow?

In other news bought a few toolsets to leave in the trunk for fix its on the road. Also got it a little twisted on a rock

I usually use a bandaid and wrap it in electrical tape. If no bandaids are available then I tear off a piece of paper towel or napkin, place that on the wound, and then wrap it in electrical tape. May work a little better for ya next time haha

There's no doubt electrical tape would work better, but I didn't have any in the shop. I used literally what I had right at hand. I don't think the shop towel stopped as much bleeding as the tourniquet effect from the wire tie, haha.

Got my Duratracs mounted to my Moabs. Now I need to install my spacers, and buy a lift lol.

Do I got with OME HD to squeeze a little more lift out of it with the rougher ride, or do I go with MD to keep a cushier ride but less lift?? Decisions, decisions!

New hub assembly, I forgot how quiet my Jeep is. Now if only I could get the hvac working properly she would be better than the day I got her.
