Talking Hi, Finally Joined, Own An 06 WK, Project Also

This will probably get lost amongst the many other new posters but here it goes. I got my 2006 WK 4.7 in April 2012. Before that, I had a 2000 WJ 4.0 for over 4.5yrs. I'm a Jeep guy, through & through. Only thing is, the electrical systems in Jeeps SUCK. Most of the time, it's fine. But, every so often, it's real annoying & can cause your Jeep to not start up. Thankfully, if you're a mechanic like me (or mechanically inclined at least), you can fix those type of issues easily enough.
My 2006 Jeep is a standard 4.7 V8. I got it with the original 235/70/17 tires & it had a K&N air filter that I clean every few thousand miles. I went ahead & upgraded to some 245 tires late last year though, the 235's looked too small to me. It's relatively rust free but under the gas cap area, the metal/paint is messed up from the years worth of gas that has eaten at the paint which is common on Jeeps. My Jeep is also a Project & I've already done some stuff to it that I can discuss more if you folks wish to hear about it.

Re: Hi, Finally Joined, Own An 06 WK, Project Also

I've done a few things to my rig so far, to help it go abit faster, save weight & get better fuel economy too, as long as I'm easy on the pedal which is most of the time.

My Project Jeep Bravo began in April of this year. So far, it's been slow going for the last 1.5 months, ever since my heater core began going bad & then it exploded all over my passenger side carpet/rear carpet where it leaked into also. So I'm dealing with yanking it out to put a 2nd new heater core in. The last one I did was in January 2015.
