w1kk3d Just installed the Fortin remote start ($99) and OEM all weather floormats ($70) yesterday. Best money I've spent to date!

07street Had the tires rotated and balanced. Thanks to Tire Discounters. If you have a Tire Discounter Store in your area they will rotate and balance your vehicle for free. Both the JKU and the wifes car was done.

I did that for awhile then I removed the axle back. Then I replaced the mid resonator with a flowmaster 40.

Eastwood sells a nice starter kit that works very well. For the oven, you can look on CL for cheap or free one. You can also buy one of those over the counter ovens for the smaller parts. The hardest part is making sure the parts are cleaned/degreased. Get the kit and oven and practice with pieces of metal.

I painted my muffler with high temp BBQ grill paint and it looks a lot better. I had a lot of paint left and instead of paying for a stubby antenna I painted my stock one. It looks great and I didn't have to worry about possible radio reception issues with a stubby antenna.

BTW, I don't lock my Jeep with the soft top on. Learned that lesson long ago when someone cut into the convertible top to steal my cassette tapes.

Powder coating is easy and lots of fun. It's a lot easier and cheaper than you think to DIY.

edit: if you don't have access to a blaster, just scratch up the fuel door bolts up pretty good and clean them...then rattle can them.

spudley After my old man emu steering stabiliser install yesterday (steering wheel was off center), found that it triggered the anti-skid system code and stopped it from working.

Found a handy youtube video about adjusting the drag-link so got out in the snow and mud to adjust that and had to disconnect battery to clear the code. Steering wheel is back to center, the code is clear and everything functions great.

I have a bit of a write-up on this on my blog at vagabondexpedition.com
