I dropped a door. Pi$$ed. Then drive to beach in RI. Check engine light came on hesitating bucking the usual drivability issues. I'm really starting to hate my jeep.
Don't know what it could be. Auto zone said lean condition. Fuel pump maybe injectors fuel rail spark plugs Ugh. Diag time. Getting sick of my tj.

Installed some new shoes and they installed the weights on the outside which really pissed me off since they were slammed and I didn't have time to wait so they will be fixing that tomorrow

That looks like way too many weights on the back tire. Make them rebalance that one when they put the weights on the backside

Well over the last few days I've noticed my battery is dying and barley has enough power to start it. I'm thinking Diehard Platinum P4...

Replaced my wheel bearings today and my pinion seal. Everything went well except the rotors were rusted to the bearings.

My brother did this to my Jeep. Pissed is an understatement of how I'm feeling right now....

Sorry that it's sideways. Not only is it scratched to the primer, but it's also dented in about 1/2".

Smaller diameter tube next to the axle. It gives you more room for articulation without hitting the axle tube, or outboaring the shocks. Plus, it protects your shock body from trail debris.

That is what I thought the others just have one or two.

Knock it back out. Seems easy enough since you can get to it from the interior. Then some touch up paint

oil and filter change plus lubed all zerk fittings on Thursday. Yesterday I took the right front brakes apart to try to get rid of the squealing. Lubed up the rails and put some permatex? on the back of the pads. Damn thing is still squealing.

+1 I suppose....I don;t have a dent like that, but I have plenty of pinstriping

Sometimes jeepers are funny though, went wheeling a couple weeks back and some chick was out in her brand new JKU Sahara, dealer modified, and some dudes were like, I wouldn't bring my $35k rig out here, and I told them hell yeh, that's the first thing I'd be doing...

Badge of honor or whatever...

But they did have some trouble getting the TC engaged into 4wd...makes me wonder if the dealer lifted it knowing it was only gonna be crawling mall in 2wd.

She had an absolute blast and saw what her rig was amazingly capable of...the first time is the best
