Replaced the center console lid. Mines was rising up in one spot where I always rest my arm. Got a darker color than the original light khaki and matches the offset brown interior color nicely and won't notice it getting dirty ever few days ( auto repair can leave you dirty in many places)

Filled up in Chicago. 788km to the tank, 8.7 l/100km! (26.9 mpg, hand calculated) Granted, I-90 was a 45 zone for something like 50 miles, so that's probably why it's so high.

Rotated tires, checked fluids, fixed a squeaky brake, and discovered a bad speed sensor, bad shock bushing, and leaking washer fluid level sensor... Drive, break, fix, repeat!

Installed my original version 4XGuard front skid;
Painted Dark Khaki with the wheels, so it's hard to see in this light.




Next will be the OME HD, Matrix, and headlights!

A lift kit would certainly improve the look and off road ability.....

Hello Jeepers, this is my first post, though I have been reading (lurking) for 7 months or so. Usually I do not have enough time to do much to my Jeep, let alone post about it, however today I found time to enjoy both!

First I removed my grill and took off the silly restriction plate that covers the snorkel on my intake. Which took all of about 10-15 minutes, including removing AND replacing the factory grill.

Then I cleaned my spectre air filter and treated it for the first time. It had been on for only 6 months, but looked like it was 5 years old! Mostly due to the fact that I hit the trails at least once every 3-4 weeks. (This takes overnight, because I to wait for it to dry before treating and replacing it in the air box.)

Finally I changed out the spark plugs (copper core champions, in there when I bought it) for some Bosch "Fine Wire" Platinum plugs. Pretty funny, dealer quoted 2.25 hours to change my plugs for $247.50 ($110 per hour!), plus the charge of the plugs $32 ($4 each, dealer price), for a sub total of $279.50, plus tax ($304.66!) TO CHANGE OUT SPARK PLUGS! My actual cost? $27.43 (including tax) for the plugs ($2.99 each at O'Reilly) and some anti seizing goop ($1.25). For a savings of $277.22. And even though I was working very slowly and methodically (double and triple checking my work), it only took me 1.5 hours.

Took the Jeep out for a drive after and I noticed several things right away.

1) It did not get any louder, but it sounds deeper.

2) The time that it normally takes for the idle to settle down after starting seemed a lot shorter.

3) The throttle response at freeway speeds was very much improved.

Wife's front passenger side seat belt buckle broke during our move from Cape Cod, MA to Sitka, AK. Broke in Wyoming, so there was no where around to order new parts. Waited til we had a extended stay in Washington and got it from the Stealership. They wanted to charge $80 for installation because it had specialized tools required to remove it. Not exactly sure when standard screws and a standard nut became specialized. Either way it took 5 mins to replace in its entirety.

The circle under the buckle is where the "specialized" sleeved nut goes.
