Blew something up in my engine last night, so today i'm driving myself nuts trying to decide on a 97 motor for $1350 or a 93 for $800 to go in my 97 TJ. My brain is mush.

On regular fog lights, if you replace the bulb with this
( KC HiLiTES/H3 12 Volt 100 Watts bulb (2767) | Fog/Driving Light | AutoZone.com ) do you have to change the other one as well?

Probably not much, it's an expensive swap from what I know. If you're looking to just get it going just do a nice 4.0 from the junkyard.

A little
Are you just needing a single bulb?
I would replace both at once.

Washed the salt and ice off and ordered ge4509 bulbs for my windshield lights. Rewelded my spare tire holder and am installing hockey pucks for new tire bump stops for the larger tire. Fixed the broken manifold front pipe flange and am changing all the fluids. Then driving it 50 miles to my hockey game

Afterwards I heard some officer speak of some missing girl in the mountains and that they were having trouble traversing the terrain. I told them I would help - as my house was on the other side and it would be quicker to go through than around the mountains. As I drove through I spotted something on the ground by a nearby tree and got out to inspect. As I moved the hood back I realized it was the missing girl. She startled awake and I extended my hand to help her up. Her eyes lit up when she saw the Jeep and she jumped in the front seat.

After driving her home, I made my way back to my house - my day finally over. As the sun faded behind the tall trees I walked past my Jeep to my door. But something was missing... ...I left the gas cap on top of the pump. But alas, that is another story for another day...
YOU sir, should be an author. I would read every book.

Well I replaced the brakes Saturday and I still have some brake squealing. I put the top brake pads on $70 bucks, and i did put the grease on the backbof the pads. Any ideas what I could do?
