Put real splash guards on... The little cheap ones did nothing for the slush... So went with the Mopars. I know.. real Jeeps don't need splash guards, but I'm tired of the white being two tone brown and for being up here in Canada it's nice to keep the slush and gravel off the paint. And I really don't want running boards which I'm sure keep the spray and rocks down. But these work very nicely.

Changed the plugs back to autolite after 8k with the champions the gas mileage kept going down and down. They looked fine and the gap was still at 35 thousandths so we'll see how these new ones do

Gave her a bath and cleaned all the blue off the new tire letters. I need to wax it before winter sets in but I didn't have time today my wife came home and had other plans.

So I just went for a longer ride since I got the new wheels and tires on and I must say there is defiantly a power loss, but not near as bad as some on here have said beings its a 4 banger. Anyway I'm loving the new look of the larger tires I'm happy with my purchase

I put those on mine too. My grip was in the summer their is so much road construction and patching pot holes the sides of my jeep and fender flares were spotted with tar all the time. The splash guards help a lot.

When i got the jeep it had a disaster wiring job done to it by a previous owner who had fog lights and a security system in it. wires tapped into other wires, random wires cut all over the place. So i ripped out all that sheit and the went through and ripped out all the unnecessary wires and Rewired all my accessories to a new aftermarket fuse box, added lights to the bumper, lights under the dash, lights under the tub to see what I'm crawling over when wheelin at night. I also cut my front bumper into a shorty and added some recovery hooks.

Its not real cheap but if you go to lower gears on the differentials it helps a lot. Mines a six cyl and with 33 X 12.50 15's it was sluggish. I had 4.10's put in and wow back to normal

Busy day!

Santa brought me lots of goodies. I put on an ENgo 12k winch, a 17" inch Antenna-X antenna and a pair of KC Dylighters. Oh, and I got some decals for the military look.
