Added a shorty antenna then dropped off the WK to get ball joints/UCAs replaced. Went with RRO after dealing with the dreaded squeak for almost a year

In regards to tpms sensors. After about 60 miles miles my left rear was showing on display. ANd then turned back to -- and the annoying chime is back. I've heard maybe could be a receiver. And there are 3. What do they look like? Where are they located? Is it something I can replace myself? If I can does anything need to be reprogrammed?

Went on a small road trip up to Helen, GA and drank some German beer!

Thursday I broke a valve spring, dropped a valve and poked a hole in number 6 piston. Time for another new motor.

How many miles and what motor do you have? Were you hard on the skinny pedal when it happened?

Just got my flush mount Rigids and the brackets from Jonathan at Steel Armadillo for the brush guard. Didn't get a chance tonight to wire anything up, but they are mounted and ready to go...and it looks fantastic IMO! Just waiting for my grill inserts from Crawl Offroad, then the front of the Jeep will be complete (although I might have to replace the factory fogs with some Rigids too after I find out how much light these things put out!)

Sorry about the picture quality, but at least I have a picture!

130,000 on the Chrysler reman motor that was put in at 48,000. I had been on the highway for 2.5 hours which is where it spends it's time mostly and turned it off for 10 minutes at a customer and wouldn't start again. When it did it was knocking and smoking. I have the 5.7 QDII Limited.

I'm religious on my maintenance too.

Swapped back in my Philips bulbs and ditched the HIDs.. Would have thrown my 3000k HIDs in my fogs but they sent the wrong bulbs!
