Another forum I am on does this, its great for the little nothings not worthy of a new thread. Its a confidence booster for your WK to let it know even the little things are important... oil change, de-badging, painting bits and pieces, repairs, the fact that you finally got to drive it...

Ill start:

- considering I made all of 2.1 hrs for the 6.5 hrs I was at work, I pulled the grand in, pulled the front end off and rerouted my HID relay harnesses for my fogs and headlamps. When I initially installed them I was slamming them in with no time to worry about wire routing or ballast mounting.
-Checked all my fluids to make sure all was still good considering the open heart surgery done to her a couple months back, all checked out good other than what looks like a slight coolant leak from my radiator end tank.
-dusted her exterior and shined the tires (she got a bath last night but it sprinkled on the way home)
-Installed a steel skid plate!
-Saturday I pulled off my steering wheel to resolve my squeeking clockspring and clicking turn signal cancelor cam, In a moment of NON-thinking I spritzed the clockspring with some spray lube, good news... it is quiet... bad news, I had a "check electric brake system" message in the evic and the traction control light on following. Quickly hooking up the witech I found I had an "internal scm failure". 2 days of driving later it went off and hasnt come back (phew)

Saturday I did a spark plug job on my 5.7.

Sunday I pulled the rear differential plate, drained, and filled.

Today I topped off tranny.

Tomorrow I will drain and fill front diff and transfer case.

Took it for a estimate for hail damage, realized I was leaking coolant. Picked up new Water pump, Coolant and some Sea Foam. Tomorrow I will put on new Water pump and run the Sea Foam Treatment.

Stop to fuel it up at Shell today and a car full of girls said, "Wow, we weren't expecting a fine ass black guy to get out of that big Jeep!"

Yesterday:

1) Took her to Butler Tire and had them install SRT springs and purchased a new set of Toyos - 275/40/20 on front, 315/35/20 on the rear.

2) Pulled out the rear hatch trim, all door skins, and front speaker grills and installed Kicker upgrade (amp and speakers).

3) Went to Tilted Kilt with the boys after a good day's work!

Today:

1) Replaced old HID fog kit with Xenon Depot kit I purchased last year. Unfortunately there was something wrong with both ballasts, so I plugged in the old ballasts to the XD relays and got everything working.

2) Installed black SRT grill

3) Running wires for future sub amp

4) Reinstalling all interior panels

5) Hopefully my license plate LEDs will be in today - if so, they will be installed.

Got some gas this morning! Was thinkin bout getting a nice wash too! lol

2005JGC here's a new avatar for ya... ;)


YES, with the lift and MT's I need to get some of these made up to replace the trail rated badge!

This thread is awesome, almost a year old, about every 3-4 months someone bumps it up then 3-4 people contribute then it gets dusty then 3-4 months later it pops back up... awesome ;)

Yesterday I installed some longer rear swaybar endlinks, replaced my ebrake shoes on the drivers side (they have been replaced before, they were in good shape but the lining was coming off of one of the shoes) followed by an ebrake adjustment. took my die grinder with a roloc disc and cleaned up my calipers where I cut down to clear the wheels.

A week or 2 ago I did a front and rear diff service, dropped the front diff and resealed the cover (leaking)...

thats about it.

I finally gave her a bath today! After it was all clean I noticed how nasty my tail pipe has gotten. I realized I hadn't touched it in probably a year, so it had a years worth of dirt and mud baked onto it. NOT NO MORE...!!!



I only did the tip where it pokes through the bumper. Didn't see the point in doing all of it since you wouldn't ever see it.

I also cleaned up the bottom since it has spent some time snuggling up to some rocks!
