Put in a new Transmission Oil Pressure Sensor & Sonax Trans Booster. I snapped the old sensor when I was trying to put in the the Sonax because I'm an idiot. Autozone wanted $125 for the 2" plastic sensor. Found it on Rockauto for $60 which I still thought was expensive but I needed it. The remaining half of the sensor that was sticking out of the transmission was a serious PITA to get out. Took me two hours and I ended up having to make a custom tool to pry it out because of the insanely awkward spot it is in. On a positive note I am liking the Sonax so far. I disconnected my superchips tune for a little while until the transmission gets used to the booster line.

In the past three weeks I have replaced the following:

- MAP sensor
- upper control arms
- lower ball joints
- transmission oil seal at the transfer case
- transfer case seals and oil
- EGR valve
- transmission oil filters
- front and rear differential oil
- spark plugs

I am sitting at 137,000 kms and the ball joints were complete ****. I'm thinking I might need to replace the stabilizer bar bushings as well.

Still on the chopping block:
- Pull passenger side exhaust manifold off and remove broken studs...
- Replace coolant

Hopefully after I complete these two items I will be good for at least a year.. I'm tired of spending my weekends replacing everything. I have a long list of things to replace on my E36 BMW that I haven't even started yet because of all this Jeep stuff.. arg.

Looks good, Im gonna have to do that soon. Mine is looking a bit faded.
Your interior color is nice. I like the black look on all the plastics. My limited is mostly the light tan on all the plastics.

Expanded sheet metal grill mod - Pretty time consuming with all the coats of plasti-dip and spraying the sheet metal too, overall result is pretty good though.

Also bedlined my rear step, Was pretty sun dried and nasty.


Plasti-dipped every piece of chrome aswell but too lazy for pictures. It's beer time.

It's extremely easy, just pop the push pins out with a flat head and pull it from the pins in the bumper. Wipe it down and spray two even coats of bedliner. Only drawback is the cost $7.47 for the can.

Great minds think alike , just did the same. No pics of the rear step but I also picked up a full size spare and threw it up on the roof rack

So Friday I randomly came across this Mojave Edition concept art, as well as had my 3rd person stop me asking if ORT was an edition.


I been wanting to do something to the WK now that the weather is nice, so I set out to try and reproduce the hood and bumper.

Opinions?
