Last weekend I ordered new fluids: Amsoil XL 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil; Amsoil SEVERE GEAR 75W-110 Synthetic EP Lubricant for my diffs; and a couple Wix filters. They arrived today. I see a fluid change in the very near future...

also i forgot. there was a tree fallen in the road and i was going to winch it out of the way until some rednecks came up and was like we got a chainsaw so i let them do it. and then a few days after that i came up to a intersection and there was a caravan in a ditch a F-250 was trying to pull it out after he broke his driveshaft i was like well guys you should pull it forward not at a angle and backwards. i said want me to try with my winch? and i looked and the wrecker was getting there so i watched as the wrecker used his winch to get the van unstuck and then charged the family $50 bucks. sucks if i was 10 minutes sooner id gotten them out and would have done it for free.

It cost me a pair of $10 fog lights. I bought a set of Hella 500's on clearance from walmart for $10 and this guy needed fog lights so I traded him. This retails for $210 on Quadratec.

With that satin black, is it like a gloss black or flat black? My jeep is black and im still debating on going with flat black flares or gloss to match the jeep...

And is that krylon stuff textured or smooth? Cuz i would like to go with smooth so its easier to clean

Put my new wheels ans tires on and went for a ride to see how she rode it was a smooth ride. They did a great job balancing then no shimmy anymore around 55-65. The tires didn't stick out as far as I expected them too either

Satin is in between gloss and flat you'll be happy satin.

The krylon is smooth its regular rattle can paint that bonds to plastic well
