Actually yesterday (sorry):

Turned left in front of an F150 (still not sure how I didn't see him). Not a lot of damage - that stock bumper is stronger than it looks - low speed I was stopped & he almost stopped (if only 1-2 more ft.).

Just some scratches & an "almost dent" - time for a "front bumper project" I guess.

After switching to 285/70's a few months ago, finally got around to massaging the pinch weld some more. This time with a mallet vs the BFH.

Got a CEL on the way to work today. Did key dance and got P0128. Basically saying the engine didn't warm up to a certain temperature in a certain time and could be a bad thermostat. It was abnormally cold this morning for Florida and I didn't let her warm up at all and blasted the heat so thinking that may be some reasons. I pulled the battery to clear the code so we will see!

Installed a set of these...





Custom brackets worked great.

But, I am replacing them with a set of 1600 Lumen 6 Cree LED Spot beam pattern lights tomorrow. These are flood and 1200 Lumen. Flood beam pattern is way too wide for daily use. Same size, 18 watts...crazy bright!

Finally got around to doing my oil. Put in 9L of Mobil1 0w40. I had originally gone to the dealership to see about the OEM MB oil filter. They wanted 45$!!! Picked up an identical (MANN HU821X) filter from PartSource, minus the MB tri star. Price? 9$ with tax. I put just over 14 000 km on this oil change, about 11 000 was straight highway. I'm sending a sample into Blackstone to see how the engine life is faring.

Lesson learned; no more dealership purchases unless I'm feeling particularly wealthy that day.

finaly got my DPF delete pipe installed. Could not get sawzall under the jeep to zip off the rusted bolts, so i had to take it to an exhaust shop.
Also bought a set of BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain TAs, 265/70/17s and had them installed on 2013 rubicon rims
Saturday installed a set of 5100s up front set at 1.5 and put on the new setup

Looks good! I wasn't sure how the newer rubicon wheels would look on a WK but they look really good!

I've never even heard of a spark plug breaking off while driving. I don't see how it's even possible.
