I do every 3k on my jeep (free for life with jeep purchase) :-) and every 5k on my wife's Armada (my money and I assume easier driving style)

Did some wheeling. The whole mountain was like a frozen river of ice. Made for a long day of winching...

My Jeep came with free warranty for life. So any troubles and she goes back to the dealer. I'm just following Jeeps maintenance schedule. As long as I check the oil I'm confident with their recommendations.

Smeared 303 on the top.
Spun the front driver spring back around to the correct position.

Basic formula of Jeeping: Obstacle>clearance=high center=winch practice.

In absence of winch practice you do a lot of digging out, which wife, me and son did a couple of weeks ago in deep drifts. But Jeep amazed everyone that we got through.

Went out yesterday and hit snowshoe trails in a couple different places. Didn't really do any wheeling, but it was kinda scenic with the snow and bright sun...

Put on my airaid cold air intake. Hoping to see some better MPG! I can definitely notice a stronger torque response already.

One small hiccup, broke the air temp sensor when I was removing it from the old housing. Anyone know if this is crucial? Got a check engine light shortly after install...

Yea it controls your air to fuel mixture I believe. Report back and let us know about the mpgs.

I broke the same sensor. As long as you tape it good it'll work fine. As for mpg, maybe .5? I have the same intake.

Yea but its hard to explain. The sound isn't as "hollow" as it was before. It sounds deeper and stronger, if that makes sense?

Bummer... How'd you break it? I still have to install mine. Would like to learn from your mistake and avoid the break. Haha

When I did mine I noticed that at louder volumes the music was clearer and didnt get muddled out in the plastic housing. Not a bad mod for 5 bucks

Installed the Spod with Interceptor gauge. I was initially hesitant to spend the money but they are both worth every penny. The gauge is a great solution for adjusting the tire size and tire pressure along with everything else it does. The quality of the Spod is also fantastic.

Sweet! Looks nice! How much did the entire setup run you?
