For my needs, probably not. I'm just using it to fill the tires!

Its a wheel speed sensor, so in my case it was the snapped wiring. Take a look at what code you have, and look up the code on google. Then it will determine if the code is triggered from the right side or the passenger side. Mine was the passenger side rear. Just look under each corner too, dont scan for something thats wrong, I didnt even notice it until I was powerwashing it.

Also, if its not that, it could be a broken wheel sensor itself. Not expensive I dont think, but the lame part of having the code is that it only tells you if its the right or the left, not left front, left rear, right front, or right rear. So its like a gamble picking which sensor has gone bad. Have many miles on the jeep?

Ordered my ARB brake booster bracket so I can get started on the air compressor! Need to get a gauge pod too, debating if I want to go with the one down by the shifter, or the one on the A pillar. Decisions decisions..

Installed the spider web shade today that I picked up off craigslist for a steal. Practically brand new, still has the seam marks in it

Install took 10 minutes, best money ive spent so far. I would recommend this to anyone! Also I ordered an ARB bracket for the compressor, and my fire extinguisher mount should be here within the week. Still waiting on my seat covers :/

Pictures for everyone!











And a random pre-shade flex shot at my girlfriends horse ranch

Made my custom rear cover today out of 5/8 plywood and some outdoor carpet. Pretty easy, just time consuming. Will post more pictures tomorrow!
