Post up readings! I'm curious what an actual gauge shows under different loads.

78k and some change and what do you mean pink and purple. Hell bro I've had that thing for 7 years.That is the longest I've ever kept a vehicle in my life. It's just sad that Jeep doesn't make anything that can tow a lot. Since we got the Wrangler I just lost interest and it can't tow what I want. That being said I guess it was inevitable but I didn't realize it until I was sitting at the dealer signing papers for the Expy. Oh and don't worry bro ,I didn't forget about you I'll get that out to you when we come back from the beach. It's been a real nuthouse around here the last couple weeks.

I will get temp pics up for Tony later today after I swap in an AMBER light bulb for pics. :slap fight:

JK

This first one was after driving 10 miles in a contraction zone on I-80 west of Des Moines. Beautiful 70 degree day and was running anywhere between 35 and 50 MPH - stayed in OD if I took it easy on the pedal.


This was taken on an 85 degree day after a 25 mile drive down I-380 at 75 MPH


This one was taken after 10 minutes of stop and go driving in downtown CR on an 85 degree day. This is the highest temp so far.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Another of the install. If my WJ did not have power pedals I would love to mount another gauge where the pedal controls are located.

Oh you know...those sweet pink and purple graphics you used to have on it. I bet you're kicking yourself now that you didn't leave them on for resale value.

Poor WJ got squeezed out...but hey, at least you're staying true with the TJ. Enjoy the beach brotha...I'm taking a little vacation myself. We'll compare notes when everyone is back. Make sure you get some shots of yourself with that umbrella we all love.

Nice! And amber bulbs would raise your tranny temp...not good.

Oh, and what were you doing in a "contraction" zone? You squeezin' out a few puppies?

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Well...didn't do anything to the WJ today, but I did spin some wrenches on the KK. Plugs, wires, t-case, and diffs....

From what I understand, yes...there are quite a few topless ones. I'm setting my expectations low though...fried eggs nailed to a wall come to mind. Hopefully I'm wrong, and if I am, I'll be making sure to be "texting" with my "camera"...hahahaha
