Your plan is totally mapped out. The okoles are sweet.

Once I put it in drive though temp doesn't matter.

Rock on.

Temp gauge in the Acura hit 102 today. Can't imagine what San Antone is like.
The other day when we were out running errands it was 106. Today I was out earlier and it was only 100. Woo hoo!

Thanks bro. I wish I had the technical skills and tools to do it myself. We will see how it turns out. It's awesome now, heck it's a Jeep. But this may be killer, just in time for deer season too!

Rock on.

Now as far as the red meat I would suggest you hit Pats Steaks while in Philly next week, if your client doesn't know where that is then you need to drop 'em....
++++ for Pats! Best steak (and soaked corn on the cob) in S. Philly!

Got that one covered great advice. My "normal" car is an 09 Acura TL. I may drive it to the coast tomorrow and jam the stereo to Apocalyptica or something and get used to riding on my a$$. 3 hours from my home town of Charleston.....great call.

And I thought this was a technical forum.....I have enough psychology, food, and beverage suggestions to now get me through.

There is a reason I have a wranglerforum.com windshield decal...and you are seeing why.

Rock on people.

Element doors....that is my next year conquest. Nice work. Tires and wheels are big I understand. You already have one he!! of a killer Jeep. When you get those new feet...holy smokestacks.

Thanks for the posts....keep up the great work Shell.

Ah Pats....good call. Some of my Philly peeps here in Charlotte like Gino's. But obvioulsy you get into major arguments about that stuff. Pats it is.

Tuesday. Done.

Rock on. Thanks

I knew this would be an issue going in....doesn't make it any easier though. Trust me.

Rumor?

I was at 4WD this evening and they were talking about a black Wrangler that got scratched up pretty bad in the back. Wasn't yours, was it?
