Got a flat tire. I think the bead finally gave way from my wheeling trip last weekend, since there was a small pebble jammed in between the rim and the rubber. While I was putting the spare on, the Jeep fell off the floor jack and scared the bejeezus out of me. Fortunately I hadn't taken the tire off yet.

Front right tire started losing air really fast yesterday, so I put the (full size) spare on and took the tire over to the shop today. $13 to get it fixed. I guess last Sunday down at Badlands I got a rock shoved in the bead and it finally gave way 7 days later. Weird. Put that one back on because the spare was giving me some nasty death wobble at 45-50... maybe it's just really out of balance lol

Oh my KC windshield light mounting brackets came today, and since I don't have any classes tomorrow (-->no homework tonight) and my club is having our lawn show tomorrow where we park our rigs on the mall in the middle of campus all day, I'm going to go see about at least getting some lights mounted on there. Might do the wiring tomorrow during the lawn show.

Nope. Mine is AFTER attempting to clean it even.

I'm pissed 'cause I bought the $2.97 bottle of Egnine Brite with the blue cap, says it's for newer, hotter running engines... the orange cap bottle says it the original for older greasy engines... My friend considered my TJ newer so I got the blue.. turns out the blue did squat.

Going to get the orange capped one ($1.97) on Wednesday for attempt #2.

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

Just finished the exhaust manifold install. The Jeep is much quieter. This was long overdue. Finally got to looking at it closer when it started to sputter and nearly die when throttling down. All in all it went pretty well. Happy to hear the injectors clicking away again. I'm pretty sure the clicking isn't a new leak. The new manifold arrived just in time as I need to tow my daily back home after work today.

SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES. NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Put on some KC Daylighters on the KC windshield mounts. Man those lights are seriously unbelievable! I saw deer at least half a mile in front of me tonight when I went for my test drive out in the country (no other cars around)!
