Took Jules for a run today...

So after installing the F&B TB for some underhood bling and giving her a quick bath last night I thought with the nice weather today I could check out my handy work.

All I can say is wow. Low down she hauls ass and can easily chirp the tires. Idle is now fantastic, super smooth and stable (used to flicker +/- 50rpm before cleaning the IAC). The CAI is also a lot more noisy than before and throttle reponse has picked up a lot too.

Didn't really get beyond 4k rpm between shifts due to Sunday drivers on twisty single carriage roads. Doing 40 in a 60 sucks...


Here are some pics of her in the sticks:










Decided to remove the roof rails (again), makes it seem lower and shows the black roof off a bit more. Can never make my mind up on some things tho..

Re: Took Jules for a run today...

Looks sweet man! Love me a WJ done right! And you my friend did just that

My ideal stable is one of each Jeep models from diff eras all stroked out and slammed with a track/street setup. Say a CJ and TJ Wrangler, WJ & WK Grand Cherokee and probably and Old Willys and maybe even the new Wrangler, Black Ops Edition

Thanks bro, means a lot! The amount of time, effort and money I've thrown at this so far, getting comments like that make it all worth while, although just seeing it parked up somewhere makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside too.

Had a few flies on the front and a little dirt on the tires but the camera can hide all that stuff well! Thanks!

Hmmm, never considered entering in that to be honest Rob. I'm gonna order a suspension upgrade either Oct/Nov. When thats all on I will take some real pictures of the beast and have a go, probably won't stand a chance tho!!

Re: Took Jules for a run today...

What, you don't need license plates in Scotland?
Or you somehow managed to get a "V8" vanity plate???


But wow. So clean. Might be my favorite WJ right there.

Yeah, got it vinyled with some 3M metallic vinyl. Don't know if I'm 100% set on it TBH but will see how I feel Spring/Summer. Loved it to begin with but the flame is dying. Don't have any better pcis, will take some tomorrow after work - dark out now.

You S.O.A.B. Hahahaha, j/k bro!

Yup, those are my plates. Cloned out the last three letter. My dad's are identical but its V6 xxx.

Thanks for the kind words too, I do my best!
