I can dig it

I certainly can't deny the advantages of being knowledgeable and doing your own work to save tons of money from bulls*** dealers and service stations.
Like Tony I have learned a lot from my father growing up, and also from my grandfather. I'm lucky enough to still have my dad around, and his general repair knowledge along with my jeep knowledge from this forum has helped us solve a lot of problems. Its also something I take pride in, its a good feeling to know you were able to fix something rather than paying someone else to do so. I also know exactly what was done to the vehicle and quality of the parts, I trust myself enough to know that the repair is going to last. And if it doesn't, I usually have a pretty good idea of what I did wrong lol.

Hopefully they just have to settle in a bit. Any luck with the tranny?

Re: Addcos? Who needs em? (Aaron's attempt at a suspension upgrade thread)

Ha, I forgot to post back on that. I took off the superchips programming and used my dad's code reader to clear the tranny code (p0750). It stayed off for a few days so I reinstalled the 87 octane tune. Still no codes, not a single problem. Seems to have just been a fluke. Or it will come back as soon as I give back the code reader lol.

For some reason my reader wasn't good enough to pull the tranny code, I may have to look at upgrading to the model my dad has.

I will have to try it again next time, but the first time I tried it said no codes. I think its time I start a new thread here...

Re: Addcos? Who needs em? (Aaron's attempt at a suspension upgrade thread)

How's the squeak issue Aaron? If those bushings are gonna be trouble I might try drilling out the Addco bushings and give them a whirl. I'm relying on you to sort this out buddy cause mine hasn't made it past the garage door yet

No squeaks that I noticed all weekend, other than my 3 year old niece in the back seat . Either I was being overly sensitive to noises from my Jeep (my wifes theory, a whole other ) or it took some trips to settle in.
