There wasn't as many shavings on the plug as I thought there would be. I don't know if the po ever changed it either

Disassembled 241OR Transfer case and installed the new front section housing and flange. The old one was cracked from an accident.

I fixed my hard top window by loosening the hinges and raising them up. I all temporarily fixed my sum visor. The mount is broke and I can't find a new one with out the whole visor. After reading the forums it sound like I am not the only one with that problem.

Took the doors off for the first time!

I am the third owner of my TJ. Two previous female owners. The doors have never been removed prior to today I am certain. The nuts at the bottom of the doors were flawless.

Definitely a lot windier without the doors on! Especially at 65-70 MPH.

Noticeable mpg difference? I wonder if mine would produce results. I always do a tune up after buying a "new" used car and haven't done this yet.

The dealership had that done prior to "emissions testing". There were a couple of other "warranty issues" that were fixed as well, between that work & the fluid changes I can see the difference in the MPG. Hope it works for you

I will be selling 5 moabs from my 2004 rubicon with mtrs on them after the holiday. The spare is brand new the other 4 used but def sill have tread. They were on when the bight the jeep so I am unsure of the exact mileage on them. Probably will ask between 500-600 for them.
