Changed oil with NAPA 10w30 and NAPA Gold filter. Greased all zirks including the ones on the after market control arms front and rear plus gave everything a good looking over.

Added a Warn winch and KC Light bar

I added a rugged ridge plate and Warn VR8000 winch along with a KC light bar that fits around the winch.... Adding KC slimlights as soon as FedEx delivers them this week!

I finally got around to painting my front fender flares in textured black. I hated the color-matched look of the fenders.

Washed and waxed the Jeep because it's awesome outside and my check engine light came on driving back home.

Pretty sure it's one of the sensors,it's idling kinda rough...oh well,I'll drive the car until I can get this taken care of mid-week.

Every year it's seems they want to act up

My cel is on too. I think it's my exhaust/O2 sensor. If you have a 2001 you can do the code reader trick I think.
