I started it up (first time in months) and drove her from the old garage to my new garage! She ran a little rough but now I actually have a place to work on it and fix it up a little more.

Kidding. I love beating the dead horse.

Well, not today, but last night I broke it. Was accelerating up to speed on an on ramp, suddenly started bucking and missing real bad. Pulled the codes as I coasted into a parking lot, P0300, P0301 and P0306, misfire in the cylinders. Been doing a lot of research on here to find out any answers so going to start throwing parts at it and see what sticks. Sucks cause it was running fine on the way to work, at lunch, and before I got onto the hwy. No clue, every step forward is 2 back I guess.

In the past month I installed smitty rear quarter panel armor, put in a new headlamp, redid my turn signals, washed it countless times, relocated my rear bumper, painted my doors, mounted my power tank, installed my AEM cold air and had the exhaust redone. I also painted up all of the scratches!

It looks like the one that's on my TJ. Google AMI Jeep Gas Tank Door and it will pull up.

Took apart my intake to see why its running like crap on the first start up of the day. Found the throttle body dirty (which I cleaned less than a year ago) and the ccv hoses and intake box has remnants of oil coated along the inside. Cleaned all that out with b12 chemtool and also sprayed it into the ccv valve like it directed. Runs much better now. For now....
