I pulled the leveling spacers out of mine. Ran into a nice lifted WK at Oceanside harbor

Got my Spare tire mounted onto my roof rack last week. Was worried about MPG's BUT, Went from getting 13.6 MPG's to 13.3 after both roof rack and tire up top and that is after about a whole week!

I actually have a 2" Rough Country lift sitting here. Just hesitant because I dont know how dumb it will look with factory sized tires. I dont want to buy tires right now seeing that these have less than 300 miles on them.

My Hankooks came in and the lift is waiting to be installed. Just have to make an appointment at the local garage.

Replacing EGR Valve on 06 XK Hemi.

Had to beat my alternator with a hammer... then I had to beat my alternator with a hammer the other way to get it back in place.

Don't know if that is the proper procedure...

Started looking for a totalled SRT for a potential motor/axle swap. Going to need a complete donor for the swap since I will need the complete wiring harness. Hopefully it will still have srt seats too

Is it a Ford alternator? Seems like there was another bolt that still needed to be loosen.

Spent a couple of fun hours with my WK today. First I started re-painting my grill inserts. I was too excited to get them in when I first did the mod so I didn't paint them as well as I should have. Then I changed my oil for the first time since I installed the Fumoto drain valve. Boy is it a breeze to change now. No mess! After that I rotated all 5 tires, loosening and then re-torquing each lug on the Spidertraxx spacers. Then I installed my grill inserts again, took her for a test spin, and called it a day.

Without pics, I have to call BS on the grille insert modifications.

One of the bolts has a stud, which also needed to be removed. Probably didn't liked getting beaten with a hammer...

EGR is in and working now.
