Time for all you '08 WK owners to seriously consider battery replacement before the electronic gremlins start to come out of their hiding places (e.g., PCM and CAN bus).....thought you'd get a charge out of that.
Agreed Walt mine is also done

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Rebuilt REN MyGig head unit installed (warranty - 4th one).

Tightened the bolts between the exhaust manifold outlet and Y-pipe inlet. [Trying to eliminate minor exhaust leaks that cause O2 sensor slow response DTC's (P0133 & P0153) at cold start if I idle over 30 sec.]

The '08's 5.7L HEMI's have no gasket at this joint.....just metal-to-metal ball & socket. I this doesn't work, I'll start looking for a more positive sealing method (i.e., custom high temp gasket).

Have to give it a week or so until the LTFT adaptives return to an equilibrium value after the battery disconnect.

Walt,
The '08's 5.7L HEMI's have no gasket at this joint.....just metal-to-metal ball & socket. I this doesn't work, I'll start looking for a more positive sealing method (i.e., custom high temp gasket).

There is an exhaust paste that comes in a tube for joints like that. You apply a bead to the female side then squish it together during assembly. It's worked for me at times when this joint didn't seal properly. I can't remember the name I'll try to think of it, or try your local parts store.

That looks really gorgeous mine looks the same minus the lights, and white of course. About a week ago I saved a website that sell similar lights. I think I'm going to be ringing them up.

I got mine off of ebay, city of industry California.
They seem really well made and haven't got that "startled raised eyebrows" look of some that I've seen.

Looking into the lamps at the cut off point, they produce a beautiful prismatic rainbow effect even with halogens.

Hope you like them.

I used to like their stuff. Then I learned what an epic dbag the owner was. Now I won't support them.
