I wish. I'll try and go back to the area with a camera this time. None of us even thought to bring one, since we didn't figure anything interesting would happen.

Same thing was happening to me, then I used a screw gun and they came right off.




Ohh, "only" paid $2.83 per gallon today. Another $0.10 down from last week.

I made a little shelf out of wood and covered with carpet to cover the "trunk" since the top will be coming down soon (as soon as its under 100F its coming off ).
Put a cap to a dasani water bottle on the lock for the center console so i quit burning my arm on it
Finally got my death wobble fixed. it only took $300 and a good talking to the manager at the stealership. made out with 4 adj. lower control arms, steering box skid, new shocks all around and a new steering stabilizer. not too bad all installed for the price

oh and saw gas at 2.59........... but i had just filled up for 2.75

That sounds like it might be worth the trip to AZ. Now who is this manager, and how long did you have to service him sexually?

His name is Chris, and luckily no sexual service was needed , just 3 days of constant phone calls and suprise visits (i like to keep 'em on their toes ). at first he said he couldnt do anything and there was no way to fix it without putting on a whole new lift (he offered me a teraflex kit for "his price" of $1600 ), but after a day of calling him and offering to pay $300 to fix it right and all of a sudden he found the parts and then had a guy that "specialized in lifts" that could put everything on the next day .
It just reminded me of how much i hate the service department at dealerships

I drove it for the first time in nearly two weeks. I had to wait till I got a day off to go and pick up my permanent tag. My 30 day tag expired but I couldn't get off during normal business hours to take care of it. I missed my Jeep.

All salesmen suck/try to screw the customers. It just seems like car dealerships tend to do it more, because they can.

if im thinkin right, there is plastic "nuts" on the other side of the screws that hold the fender ext. on. On the rear you have to take the fender wells and move them to reach the "nuts". on the front just reach around the metal part of the fender

Aired her down, only to be told the beach was closed due to the storm. Guy made us wait till 5 when it opens, then his supervisor calls telling him not to let anyone out. Aired back up, and hit the road.
