What did I do to my WK today?

Just doing the same thing everyday here lately...
Driving, adding miles, and chasing down that 230k mark!

Finally got around to changing my passenger side exhaust manifold/gasket and bolts today. The rear 2 studs had broken and it was ticking pretty bad. If I can offer any advise to anyone doing this in the future...I tried to be stubborn and remove as little as possible. I quickly realized that the little time it takes to remove the airbox and alternator, it makes this job not so bad at all. Without removing them, youíre going to want to set the Jeep on fire and take it as a loss. I got lucky and my studs had broken right at the head so once I got the manifold off I had plenty of real estate for pliers. Didnít have to do any welding. Itís funny though how open it is once you get the airbox and alternator out, yet itís still a ***** to get a wrench in everything. Even my rear broken bolts were deceivingly wide open but then you go to put the pliers on them and thereís not really any good angles. But of all the small hassles doing this job, one the of the biggest pain in the *** parts was getting the bolts/nuts back into the downpipe flange. My neighbors met a whole new person during that phase of reassembly. And donít even try to get them off the conventional way. I spent a whole 5 seconds on that before I went found my oscillating tool with a metal cutting but. Took about 30 seconds per side and I was done. All in all it wasnít near as bad as I thought it would be.

Might as well do headers while it's apart.

EGR Valve. Curses upon the man who put it at the back of the engine. I had to have my 12 yr old help me as I couldn't get my hands back there!

I installed a back-up camera as well as a dash-cam along with a rear-cam. Hardwired into the electrics of the Jeep. All wires properly hidden and tucked away. Working perfectly!

Here is the dash-cam kit.

Been running 3-way active up front for a while now, and while I got things EQ'd pretty well, I still know it could sound better. Tweeters flush mounted into the A-pillars and 3.5's in the factory location leave a bit to be desired with staging. I'm also switching to so higher end drivers here soon, so I figured I'd start working on some a-pillar speaker pods to bring them more on axis get the most out of them.

Made a couple templates out of cardboard, traced to MDF, cut out with a saw, smoothed and shaped to better match the contours of the dash, cut the speaker holes, and then duplicated the piece using a router with a flush trim bit. I also made a set out of PVC board, though a bad bearing on one of the bits caused it to melt down into the material in a couple spots. Neither panel is perfect anyway, so I'll be remaking them. I have speaker alignment down, but I'm still experimenting with design. Next set I make I'll be cutting the inside corner after the 3.5" and angling it inwards to lessen the amount of the dash it covers. Once I get a design I'm happy with I'll make a few extra sets before I start fiber-glassing and matching it to the a-pillar. Been going well so far, but this was all a random Monday morning idea, I really have no idea what I'm doing, so I'm bound to have something mess up eventually. Spares are good!

I've started hauling food from my weekday home to my weekend home using an electric Coleman cooler. Having the cigarette lighter in the back of the Jeep is great and the plug doesn't pop out over the 3 hour trips. The Coleman isn't as good as the 3-way fridge in my van but it is good enough. The drawbacks being that it has a fan running continuously and you need to leave your vehicle running for it to work without killing your battery.

my son has a 55 qt arb fridge / freezer that we borrowed last year for a run from seattle to Yosemite ca. left it plugged in for the 6 days we were there and it didn't kill the battery, kept every thing cold / frozen and the best thing was not having to buy crushed ice for coolers every day.

Farming with the WK on the 4H ranch 🙂

Yes we are city people. You real farmers are going to laugh. But it worked amazingly well and gave us a chance to put it in 4low.
