Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Re: What's your Maintenance Cost?`

I can't blame you. With me, it's part of the "fun" of owning one. If you took what I've spent on just maintenance items vs what I've spent on upgrades, there is a huge, HUGE difference. I'm...

Re: Any KK owners with oil leaks?

Well, I think the issue is resolved, at least for now. I did an oil change, cleaned the hell out of that plastic funnel thing after snugging down a new oil filter. So far, so good.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

UC springs should have been factory on the Colombia edition...and on the Freedom editions.

I ended up going with Napa links. The poly ones I got from Summit were crap.
