What did you do to your WK today?

Another forum I am on does this, its great for the little nothings not worthy of a new thread. Its a confidence booster for your WK to let it know even the little things are important... oil change, de-badging, painting bits and pieces, repairs, the fact that you finally got to drive it...

Ill start:

- considering I made all of 2.1 hrs for the 6.5 hrs I was at work, I pulled the grand in, pulled the front end off and rerouted my HID relay harnesses for my fogs and headlamps. When I initially installed them I was slamming them in with no time to worry about wire routing or ballast mounting.
-Checked all my fluids to make sure all was still good considering the open heart surgery done to her a couple months back, all checked out good other than what looks like a slight coolant leak from my radiator end tank.
-dusted her exterior and shined the tires (she got a bath last night but it sprinkled on the way home)
-Installed a steel skid plate!
-Saturday I pulled off my steering wheel to resolve my squeeking clockspring and clicking turn signal cancelor cam, In a moment of NON-thinking I spritzed the clockspring with some spray lube, good news... it is quiet... bad news, I had a "check electric brake system" message in the evic and the traction control light on following. Quickly hooking up the witech I found I had an "internal scm failure". 2 days of driving later it went off and hasnt come back (phew)

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Saturday I did a spark plug job on my 5.7.

Sunday I pulled the rear differential plate, drained, and filled.

Today I topped off tranny.

Tomorrow I will drain and fill front diff and transfer case.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Took it for a estimate for hail damage, realized I was leaking coolant. Picked up new Water pump, Coolant and some Sea Foam. Tomorrow I will put on new Water pump and run the Sea Foam Treatment.

Well...I took mine to the shop today. Long story, but transmission issues.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Stop to fuel it up at Shell today and a car full of girls said, "Wow, we weren't expecting a fine ass black guy to get out of that big Jeep!"
