DRove it home after buying it!
Not today, but drove to work in a storm...had my video camera just in case a tornado warning happened.

Replaced my rear wiper switch, now it functions 100%, not 50%.
Since we are talking about Gas MPG, Filled up today, I would say it was 50/50 driving. Internet site I track it on says I got 17mpg.

On the topic of what I did with my XJ today, hauled a mattress for a family member (he paid me 10 dollars and it probably cost me 5 to drive there and back).
Drove to work (been driving my car the past two days), but stopped at the tire shop to price new tires.

At a church members house that had a gravel pile.

What did it cost? I like it too.
Nothing, drove my other car to work today, same thing tomorrow. Both cars have full tanks.
Took off my drivers side door panel to see how hard it would be to replace my speakers. Since I seen how easy it is, that is on my list of items to do next. Probably go with Sony Explode 3 ways for now since they are only 30 each pair.
Tried to fix my drivers door lock and couldn't, then it slowed down on the rain and I seafoamed it.
Speaking of greasing. I know on my car, there isn't many or any. But how hard is it for someone like me to grease where it should be greased?
Drove to work, thinking about buying some stock wheels and some Goodyear A/T's with 500 miles on them for 300 plus my old tires.

These are the rims, should I do it?

Drove to the parts store for an oil filter wrench to change the oil in my car.
Car or Jeep?

I usually do it with my hands.
Car, a Chevy Malibu. Tried with go. Tried with cheap strap wrench, didn't work. Settled for 5 dollar filter wrench.

Jeep is getting an oil change on Wednesday, but I am taking it to a shop and having the wheels balanced at teh same time. I have a bit of shake that I hope stops with a balance. has a fresh oil change and gets better gas mpg so Jeep stayed parked. Don't know if I will drive it tomorrow either.
got the oil changed, and got the tires balanced...fronts were out of balance so bad, my passenger seat looked like it had a vibrate function on it.
Wasn't today, but a few days ago. Found out that I have one working speaker!!!
I haven't done anything with my Jeep since Sunday. I don't like letting the gas get below 3/4 without putting gas in. I normally only get gas at my work and we are getting new pumps put in. Also, Jeep has one working speaker that only works about 50% of what it should. Car has 4 good speakers, Ipod hook ups and good radio. I plan to drive it on Saturday, possibly if I don't go out of town.
If he is shipping fast again, I might order this winter from him.

I drove it after parking it on Sunday. Filled it up, cost me 17 dollars on 3/4 tank.
Drove it, filled it up, got 19 mpg. I think I am going to replace the plugs soon, how hard is it to get the rear plug, it looked like a little tight, but I only looked at it for 5 minutes.
