Changed out the center console stuff since the lights were burnt out and the buttons were worn off. Turns out the lower section (seat heater, tow/haul, traction control) was from a WK that didn't have backup sensors or traction control. Anyone know if I can just take the old buttons and somehow swap them on to the new piece? Also if anyone knows what I am talking about, is there a name for these...panels? Anyway, its nice to be able to see the temperature at night!

Also I guess I should mention that I got an email saying my skid plate from steelarmadillo shipped. Tracking info says it weighs 89 pounds. That's...a lot.

Installed a new PCV valve, EGR valve and cleaned the throttle body on my 08 XK Hemi. Tried to replace the MAP sensor, but couldn't get the old one out...

Bought the plugs and will put them in on Saturday, I hope...

Will be getting a Superchips Flashpaq 3875 tomorrow off of clist for $150.

Rotated the tires and changed the oil. Slapped the rear Bilsteins on the 05.

Is the superchips unlocked? If not, add $100 through superchips.

It is. He returned to stock before selling his jeep. I called Superchips and they said the safest thing to do is to tune my jeep when I get it and that will confirm it is unlocked. Correct?

Yeah, or you can install the update software on a windows computer. When it updates it will tell you if it's locked to a vin or not. I would definitely update it, but plugging it into your car would by far be the fastest.

Thanks guys. That is the plan. Hook it up and successfully tune the jeep and then pay for it.
