Little cosmetic add for me tonight. Added door entry sill guards. No more black sole smudges on the white paint.

The driver seat in my 2014 just started squeaking the other night...out of the blue. Irritates me. What was the problem/solution with yours?

Another thing that works great is replacing the fenders with some cool looking flat fenders. Never pass up a chance to get cooler stuff.

How do you like the Overland flares? Would you buy them again if you had to do it over again?

Anyway, we shall see what news arrives today. Meanwhile, soccer moms, aunts and grandmas are approaching me in the Chick Magnet (formerly known as a Dodge Grand Caravan rental unit)...

Not done yet, but leaving the house in about 10 minutes to drop my 2013 Sahara at the stealership for a the factory MOPAR 2" lift. New tires and wheels to follow in a week or so.

I had a light that wouldn't go off and it turned out to be my spare. They do have a monitor. Otherwise when you rotate your tires you would have an issue.

Took the doors off, added the Rocker Knockers, and Or-Fab rear bumper. Also dented my cowl..
I must say i was impressed with the quality and finish of Or-Fab, not so much with the finish of PS. The rockers had a few drips from welding and little spark particles all over. Fro twice the cost of the Or-Fab and all the raving i expected more.

They are idiots.

The spare has a sensor also. All of the sensors have a centrifugal switch on them. They transmit nothing if they are not rotating. The sensors use basically a little watch battery, and if they were always on, you'd be running them out of juice really fast. So when your tires are not spinning they are switched off. When moving they switch on.

The only reason the spare would be an issue would be if its switch was bad on the sensor.

These things are not magic - I can't believe your dealership is acting like the sensors are really hard to check. Wanna know if its it spare, thats easy. Take the spare off and leave it at home and go for a drive. If the light is still on after 10 minutes, then the spare was not the problem.

Also tested the wd-40 technique on the fenders....

You be the judge

Now to see how long it works

Just heard from the dealer. Apparently for the TPMS to work, one actually needs the sensors in the wheels. Who knew?

I believe the dealer they traded with scavenged them for someone else and never replaced them.

Picking up "Arabella" this afternoon.
