I took them off. Just make sure to do it one at a time so the windshield stays centered and level

You don't have "Sentry Key Theft Deterrent System" on your jeep, do you? If you do, then the key has to have a chip in it, and you won't be able to start your jeep without it..

My 2005 has it, but idk if it's stock. Only way to find out is to get your build sheet by emailing Jeep, or actually trying it

If you call the right locksmith they'll get you a key with the chip if needed. From experience. Will run you about $120

Yeah, call around and find a locksmith that can make a chipped key. They can usually cut it cheaper than the Stealership! And your supporting a local small business!

Well it depends, the key that was made for my sister was for an 08 corolla, but I am in California so everything is expensive here.

New Falken Tires

I had a blowout yesterday so I went ahead and replaced all 4 tires with new Falken Rocky Mountain ATS 31x10.5DR15LT. So far I like the ride and the looks of the tires. I know, the milk jugs are the next thing to go.

Mine does this once in a while also. Had it two years and it only seems to do it when it's raining outside or really cold. Then they will come back on and run just fine. I gave up on trying to find a loose wire and just appreciate that when the gauges drop off, it's not adding any miles to the odometer either, LOL!

The only bonus! I found a DIY solution on here that I'm going to try later this week for that problem. Just cleaning the connectors and bending them slighty for better contact.

Washed, waxed, Applied mothers back to black to all plastic, vacuumed, and used bestop soft top cleaner.

Does anyone know if the bestop soft top cleaner is supposed to be effective on OE soft tops? I applied it twice, and followed the instructions. It seemed to look better for the most part, but I can still see most of the mud stains that I had.

Ah, ok. Maybe I didn't let it soak in long enough or something. I guess I'll leave it on longer next time and scrub harder

If your key was black then it doesn't. Of it was gray then it does.

I've heard that putting chalk on the belt can get rid of the squealing. I just don't know for how long.
