Most shops don't just drop one bead tho, they force the rebalance for a little extra coin. I did the same thing only when the boss was around. otherwise I did front beads. but I did recheck balance but I never charged people for it

Well today I went to physical therapy for my back. Had it needled in a few places. Doc says the muslce is partially contracted and is causing the muscles in the area around it to compensate for it.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Does that mean they'll be ok? These are for ronin wheels. Someone beat me to that auction but told seller if falls through, keep me in mind. 60 shipped for the 4 brand new.

With an open cone air filter you greatly increase the risk of hydro locking your motor when it rains.

So I'm looking online for stock srt grand cherokee intake tube and all that comes up is CAI's do I have to go to a dealership?

Alex, are you going with a black exhaust tip (eg gibson) ?

Oil.... My jeep is loving the Castrol 10w60, perfect for the hot weather, runs so smooth...

Railing under windows, mine where brushed alu, now all black (painted).

Shout if you need pics, but before saturday as im off to Cape Town -South Africa again.... Lekker!

So you're talking and a tip? Link? Thanks bro. Sorry I've been out the loop for a while been going through a lot of thinking .. If I'm going to keep the jeep or not.. Trade it in or not... I made a lot of calculations financially. I came to the conclusion I ****ing love this jeep I hold a Tight sentimental value to it... Today I got my headlights and I'm wowed to see how she will look like.. Every piece of her is a piece of me... So I will be keeping her as my dd as I get my secondary vehicle. Much love to y'all and thank y'all for years of knowledge seems like I'll be sticking around till the engine fails.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Noticed by the echoes off of the parking garage walls today that I was getting metal on metal grindings when the WK's weight shifted during left turns. The sound was obviously rotational and followed the wheel rotations. Took her to my local shop and had them throw her up on the racks. Sure enough, my suspicion was correct and my right front wheel bearing isn't totally shot, but it's sure on it's way out. Got on amazon and bought the $123 Timken for replacement

I wouldn't worry about the 3.7 failing anytime soon bro. Ive seen 3.7's as high as 350k and never once been opened up for rebuilds. The owner says it still runs strong. Mines got almost 30k just from me and a lot of it is hard driving. She's still solid.

Sorry bro. Haven't had a a lot of time to look. Ill try to find ya one during lunch today. You could also do what I did when I had dual side dump. I just ran pipe out the side and I painted the pipes. Pretty much unless you where paying attention, you'd never see em. They stuck out maybe an inch from under the body and hung an inch and a half lower then the body. But yeah bro, I look some more today.
