They rebuilt my transmission, and did my diff bushings free labor. They are also are adding a line pressure booster free labor. (Just plugging something in) price is high but it's all warrantied. It will be done tomorrow

Got my Flashpaq in the mail today. I'm trying out the 87 tune and dialed in the speedo for my (slightly) larger tires.

Yeah I saw a thread about that. I was expecting issues, but so far so good.

I figured better to use my CAA/AAA towing to get it back to the dealership instead of fixing it myself!!
Ok so I was a little off in my number above. My front drive shaft invoice comes out like this:

Labor: 216.00
Parts: 385.86
Shop Supplies: 21.60
Service Coupon: -53.43
Tax: 31.83
Total: 601.86

I can't believe yours is $920 CAD!

Cut out the bad section of rubber cooling lines for the tranny and replaced with new high pressure 3/8 hose and double hose clamped each end. No more leaks. Dealer wanted $600.00!

Post-Christmas Upgrades!

The past week has been spent installing all of the Commander upgrades that I wanted for Christmas, but didn't get, along with installing a few items that had been sitting around for a month or two.

New Bilsteins at all 4 corners - Thanks Kolak! - made a HUGE difference in handling

Rusty's leveling spacers up gront - makes the Jeep look much more balanced (pics of spacers will be posted in wheel/tire thread for reference)

New Weathertech digifit liners for all three rows. Was sick of cleaning up after the kids in the backseat. I opted out of the cargo area as I've been using a liner from the trunk of a previous car (a Gorilla liner maybe?) that has rubber backing so it won't leak liquids through, and fabric top w/ velcro dividers that work very nicely. It fit perfectly, so I've kept it and will use it until I ruin it.

Air Raid "tube" (junior?) whatever it is called, I just got the tube to get rid of the baffles and make the intake track a bit more efficient. Working very nicely w/ my K&N drop-in and SuperChips tuner so far.

Very happy with all 4 upgrades!

I finally got my new liftgate supports in. I was tired of that thing bonking me in the head. It took a torque wrench to get them in, but now it actually takes force to close the gate!

Got some new shoes today. It's been raining/sleeting since this afternoon so the pics are crappy. All four would of been pretty tight in the back of the Jeep so they had to ride in the back of the truck. Gotta figure out how to fit them.

Pics ? I bought one before they closed for some future lighting additions. Not installed yet.

Edit: nevermind, just saw your build thread.

Got new rubber the other day; full set of five. Coopers. Nothing special, as he is a daily driver.
