The owner drives the green Rubitrux with a 5.9 hemi. The Boss Huff had a sold sticker on the front window.

I changed the exhaust header a few months back and CEL came on, I tried to locate the leak but no luck so I kept driving her since it did not affect the performance.


Well it fixed it's self.
CEL went out.

Mine had a k&n on it when I bought it, can't seem to find any jeeps in junkyards around here to grab a stock one. Also need rear seat belts as the PO must have had a dog that they allowed to chew on the belts...

Need black ones, all black interior, I could get new ones but I don't want to pay 100 some bucks. The one JY I thought would have some wranglers only had one and said it had been sitting there for a long time and not much left to it.

Think I may try to go there next weekend anyways and see if they have any jeeps regardless of what the guy says on the phone.

Should probably check out daveya jeeps since they are in Ohio and see if I can snag a pair from them. Jut hate gettin on there site because I see a bunch of items I want to buy lol.

For seat belts (or anything for that matter) check out http://www.oly4x4.com/ go into "vehicles for sale" then click on the "parting out" tab. They usually have a lot of wranglers. Once I have the funds for a hard top and full doors and a full console, that's where I'm calling.

OT I put the windows back on yesterday as the rain season started. Makes me want to cry.

I'm staring at mine out front. I have nowhere to go - even though the weather is gorgeous today!

Gutted the front diff to replace axle shaft seals and also replaced the air fitting for my locker that I broke while doing the upper CA bushings a few weeks back. Then refilled with fresh royal purple.

Anyway I needed a new adjustable track bar and their sales guy told me on Wednesday that they had Rubicon Express in stock but when I got there today, they had used the last one earlier this week. Oh well guess I'll keep trying to find a used one on here for cheaper.
Quite a few years ago some Marine buddies and I took a road trip up to Boone. There's a "christian" school called Lee's McRae, where our buddy knew some girls. It was a good weekend

OP: I didn't do it today, but I put this on. Pretty sure mileage has gotten even worse since I applied it. Ha!

fair removal

Started to try and remove the screws that hold the wheel flairs on. So they supposedly upgraded, sort of, from the wacked plastic back retainers on the YJ's to metal ..stil a major pain in butt to remove plus the side extensions have scews where there is no access to the backs so your only option is to cut them off ..now figure out how to get up under the flair with a cutting wheel or grinder ... what a waste of time ..sorry for winning ..but still sucks......somebody needs to kick some Chrysler engineers in the ***...that's what happens when you have non jeep/truck/car guys who never work themselves on these vehicles doing the engineering...

Yeah hahaha , Boone isn't exactly where you'd think a Christian school would be. I mean it's nothing bad going on there but not your typical Christian school place I would think.
