Ah yeah I always forget about the water pump because I already replaced mine a couple years back. Another good call greenwayer.

I got the 60k Hemi maintenance kit online for around $90 and it has the serpentine, pcv, air filter, oil filter, and 16 OEM champion plugs!
$90 is ALOT. On rockauto it would have cost you somewhere around $20 at the most $30 with shipping and everything.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I did a whole coolant system overhaul like 2 years ago, water pump, thermostat flush. But haven't topped up since then most likely lol. mine usually sits a tiny bit below half as well. Now it seems to be back at that spot. I noticed crushing around 80 on the highway it was running a tiny bit above half. but not anymore since the fill up!

Mine was a PITA to get off too. I just kept pulling on it using flat head screwdrivers to help along the way, but it just requires a little time and elbow grease

Did you bleed the system after you topped it off?

You had to take the headlight apart to get the corner if the headlight painted right?
