Well, my WK turn 100K on Wednesday and the d@mned A/C went out yesterday. Since I don't have room in the garage to work in and it is going to rain every day this week, the repairs are going to have to wait until after we get back from vacation...

Just finished changing out the front diff fluid. Up next the transfer case, and if i have enough time before the game, start sanding and prep work for the underside so i can get it painted before winter gets here!!

Installed new BT catch can. Used the sidewall of the K&N CAI to mount it. Worked out pretty well.

What does it do? What is the significance of this item?

Finished up a weekend of driving around on forest service roads. I guess my sway bar is hitting on something...anyone else have that problem? It clunks when I turn left so I pounded the sway bar towards the passenger side and it goes away until I go through big potholes (articulation seems to mess it up). Wish it would stay out of the way.

As a side note, I also got my catch can late last week and I am trying to figure out where to put it...I like what you have done eggink

The reason for using an oil catch can on a 5.7L Hemi:

The factory PCV, or positive crankcase ventilation system has the bad habit of recirculating oil vapor into the intake, resulting in dirty, performance robbing 'gunk'. A catch can puts a stop to this, ensuring that only fresh clean air is passed from the PCV circuit to the incoming air mixture.

Thanks for the props on my catch can install. I thought about all the ways to mount it and this one was the simplest.

Holy tires batman! What size tires are those. Like the Jeep btw.


As far as the rear stance of the WK's on +4" of lift.. It's just a matter of getting an adjustable trackbar. I didn't know the super lift was still available for us. Or is this a different 4" lift?
