I pay about $126 a month with Progressive. I will say that is the cheapest I've gotten for any of my SUVs and I'm pretty happy with it.

Another factor that can raise your rates is if you live with someone who has a bad driving record. When I still lived at home, insurance companies wanted to charge me $500 a month because my brother still lived there and he had 5 DUIs.

I finally got my plates yesterday and have it on the road. So much fun to drive .

Couple of (more sorry) questions

The rims are in good shape but there's a bit of pitting on the rims , how could I get that out and shine them?

Want to get new speakers for the sound bar. Is it a big job to replace them? Is there specific speaker sets for them?

For the sound bar, just get new speakers of that size whatever brand you want.
I suggest buying marine speakers.

As far as pitting on the wheels, get some good aluminum cleaner and elbow grease.if that doesn't work you will have to sand them.

You can always try the Mothers Power Ball.

The speakers in the sound bar are wicked easy. Took me 10 minutes to wire in the replacement ones I got.

Ok sweet cheers,


Also got replacement food pedals. However the ones that are on it are hard to take off as some of the screws have worn down and won't screw out any tricks you know that might get them out ?

pull on the speaker rings to apply downward pressure on the screws, then try un screwing them again. Or wedge a screw driver between the ring and the surface to do the same thing while trying to unscrew.

Not that I know of, Cali is not my home state. I'm in the Military and I got stuck out here in the middle of the Mojave Desert.

Ah ok...well blue laws, back when they were first put in place, outlawed businesses to be open past 5pm on Sundays and until last year, package stores could not be open on Sundays and bars can't be open past 1am.

Well they initially put them in place to "protect" businesses from being robbed and what not because in their mind, if businesses weren't open, nothing could happen to them...I definitely do not agree with those laws and I think they wised up when they realized people were driving to NY and MA to get their alcohol on Sundays.

Question number two. This is gonna be a silly one.

To a activate 4wd in my 92 YJ do I cruise along in first gear put the clutch in and change into 4wd? Or should I be in neutral?

Isn't that for "Low Range"?

I believe 4WD you can be going in first gear.

Pushing forward, 4WD. Pulling back into the middle, Neutral. Pulling it all the way towards the back of the vehicle, Low Range.
