Two words i think 'sold' and 'out'

Ho hum, shame as indeed they were the band that defined my music choices later in life!

Indeed mate, indeed. You'd never see Lemmy or Layne in flip flops

Hopefully will be able to try bring something to the forum! Think i have a few snags to sort out with the new 'toy' but i will get there - im quite hands on and would rather NONE of my vehicles went to a main dealer!

When its actually light here I will take some photos, but im sure you all know what a blue/purple WJ looks like

Re: Hi from the UK

Cheers guys!

Have two drinks for me

As this is the daily driver im still trying to keep it standard - although the broken CD Changer (well, temperamental) has sealed the fate of the standard stereo now - old top of the range kenwood going in asap (adapters ordered) with changer, JL audio amp(s) and sub will be in there shortly

Bonnet fixed, car buffed and cleaned inside and out. Actually looking very straight and not abused. All fluids seem to be on the mark and have been changed recently - might just do the front and rear diffs for peace of mind.

Geting used to driving it now - coming from a slammed 500hp sports car to one of these is somewhat of a contrast!

Now just have to STOP looking at side exit exhausts and SRT wheels ...

Re: Hi from the UK

Just a quick update -

Had the Jeep 4 weeks now and done a few things ...

Heating not working - blend doors replaced with METAL aftermarket ones. Cut an access panel and replaced, easy job really - just budget about 2 hours to do with a dremmel (although 30mins of that was getting the damn glove box out!)

No Overdrive / choppy into gear - Code P700 showing on dash, P0731 (incorrect gear ratio - 1st) showing with my OBD2 code reader. Suspected and replaced both input and output sensors. Easy job (again) do not even have to lift the jeep - now smoothly enguages and O/D is back

Incorrect lights showing on dash - noticed when the P700 code was present the Check Engine light should be on. Removed dash - noticed somone had removed some bulbs!! Replaced all the missing ones, all now functioning and one lights up that is not in the manual! (not quite sure what that one is - red in the top left of the dash, looks like a wide based beaker!)

Hand Brake (E-brake) cable snapped - well the little welded bung on the end of the front wire came off when pulling up. New cable replaced - note you do NOT have to take out the entire interior - back seats out and you can just about lift the carpet to gain access

Bulbs replaced all around - one sidelight had gone and the indicator bulbs were more white than orange. Replaced with HID-light bulbs and correct ones all around

Rear light guards - Matte black for a little protection from the bad drivers around...

Things to do

Blow in manifold - just started it one day to the sounds of a blow - suspect broken bolt or loose, hopefully not a crack in the manifold - noise goes after >1min as everything expands

Oil change - although looks ok, i have no paperwork to when it was changed. Still not sure if its a Dana 35 or 44 on the rear for fluid change

Bull Bars - just because I fancy some

Still happy with my purchase and the things that have gone wrong are really all wear and tear parts and i got it for a steal in the first place

Just hope we have some snow here in the UK this year...

Paul
