Heading out to the park this weekend. Had to get a battery hold down bracket and some new terminals because mine looked like this (and this is after hitting them with a brush):

Now everything is new and shiny

Since the X didn't have a subwoofer console I bought a used one. Everything went together well until I tried to bolt in the back of the console through the rear cup holders. I removed the rubber plugs from the floor expecting to find threaded holes but instead found hexagonal holes. What am I missing? Were there supposed to be nuts tacked there? Or caged nuts, nutserts, brackets? I'm at a loss...
Those are suppose to be nutserts.

Space is not cheap in highly available environments. As a systems engineer, I am in servers all day long, and know this fact as well as anyone.

Leave all the pics there and make them pay!!!!!

Still fixing the little things...
Installed some plastic license plate "nuts" into the front bumper...(and properly installed the front plate).
Changed the unknown quality oil & generic white filter and put the correct gasket on the drain plug.. "fixed the drip"
Found both transmission cooler lines leaking at the radiator, will make a trip to pickup some #8 O-rings to fix it this morning.
Fought with Sirius radio over the phone until they cancelled my "free trial" (called back later and verified that it had been cancelled), and got them to promised to stop the telemarketing harassment (will have to see if it actually happens; need to find a class action lawyer)...
Removed the radio and unplugged the satellite radio/auxiliary input plug (will need to find the module, remove it and and cut off the antenna)... need to research to find out if I can attach a Bluetooth module)..
Enjoy!

'06 TJ Rubicon; seemed like a good idea at the time; had many CJs...

The module is behind the driver's knee bolster. Just reach up under there and you'll feel it. The antenna is the lump on the roll cage bar above the driver's door. I don't know of any Bluetooth modules that plug into the factory radio.

Thanks!
...found the antenna already. I'll probably just get a cheap (amazon) Bluetooth 12 volt module and try it using the satellite radio plug (found some pin out diagrams, last night, for Chrysler products that are probably close).. . if the levels/impedances match great if not I'll make another plan.
Enjoy!

Took out the back seat!

I took out the back seat and got a special mat to put down for my dogs! I don't normally have more than one other person riding with me and this new mat makes it easier for me to keep my dogs safe while Jeeping!! Love this new feature!

I think I fixed the medium emissions leak that was throwing a CEL and creating a noticable gas smell while driving. I didn't have the parts to build a smoke tester. So, using an old gas cap, spare pipe fittings and hot glue, I made a pressurizer to connect to an air compressor.

I turned the regulator down really low, inflated the gas tank and listened for leaks. I heard a light hiss by the pump near the charcoal canister and found two leaking hoses using soapy water. A little silicone was all it took to re-seal them. So far this week, no more stink and the CEL hasn't come back.

I learned a lot about how the emissions system works and how it knows if there is a leak, so that was a little bit interesting.

Fixed my A/C. For a few years, my A/C would stop working if it was above about 80 degrees and I was driving greater than about 50 MPH. Turns out it was the low pressure switch, which had some sort of temperature-related fault. Troubleshooting involved an LED hooked up to the compressor to tell me when it was engaging, and a length of telephone wire shoved into the pressure switch connectors so I could short them out to determine which one wasn't working (couldn't just use a continuity tester, as the problem would go away when I opened the hood and the hot air escaped). $18 for a new switch.

Found out my 42RLE is slipping but now that I know what a transmission slip is, i think my transmission has started slipping since probably the beginning of this year, hopefully and transmission flush and putting in a new filter will fix it along with a transmission cooler, and hopefully calling it a day fingers crossed...**** Florida hahaha ever since I moved here I've been having nothing but heat related issues e.g. fuel vaporization (fixed), misfires(fixed), thermostat blowing out and having my jeep overheat on the side of the road(fixed), and now my transmission is slipping probably because its getting really hot. Didnt think that I would need a trans cooler because since I've moved down here I've been focusing on school and fixing things on my jeep and havent had much time to offroad but these highways and hot temps in FL has been heating up the clutches. I really dont want to rebuild or possibly swap my transmission because who ever wants to lets be honest hahaha

Almost finished with my TeraFlex SSSYE and 2low. I had to order a new oil pump and wait. This thing is short! I decided to do it still attached to the trans. I think it is easier this way.

I did mine attached. Not sure it's easier, but I don't think it's more difficult, either. Definitely would have been easier if I did my 4" lift first.
