I have an off-topic question: is there a cabin air filter in the 2005 KJ? If so, where?

The DK365's have a very good Euro B rating for both wet grip and economy which is far better than most A/T tyres...The latter usually have an average F rating for both wet grip and economy, which is poor.
Thanks to my manual six speed gearbox and the DK365's, I'm averaging 38mpg, in US gallons (45mpg in UK gallons), dropping to a minimum of 33mpg, in US gallons, if I use the aircon all day. (Which I have to at the moment as it's the height of summer here and averaging 31'C outside).
Alfamotors tyres are also known under the brand names Double King, Zestino or Lakesea, all of which are made by the Qingdao Keluck Tyre Co. Ltd, in China.
You can find them on Alibaba, but alas, they have a minimum order of 200 tyres, so look for your local tyre supplier that stocks at least one of those brands. They are very high quality tyres but cheap to buy too. The treadwear rating on the DK365's is an impressive 440 and they come with a 50,000km (31,000 miles) warranty.
I bought four online from a tyre company in the UK, over 120 miles away, on ebay for £118 with free delivery, and they came the next day by courier! I had to pay a further £49 for one more for the spare wheel.
