I need to take a look at it and do the same, good idea.

I had one on an old ford and it was a royal PITA. Always fouling the MAF for no discernable benefit.

JDA8 If you want real gas mileage gains, use synthetic oil. Hell it could give a Camry another 1-2 mpg. But if you're so concerned over 1-2 mpg, you're probably looking at the wrong car considering this is estimate to get 16 in the city, and in the real world will probably never hit that 21 mpg freeway because it's brick designed from Picasso's cube age.

Considering aerodynamics are non existent and it's a convertible, you could have the alpine or some 20 speaker Harmon-Kardon and probably not tell much difference. It reverberates off of the plastic roof.... If you wanted a quiet car that's loud and obnoxious and can go over curbs when you're too lazy to go out the right way, you should've bought a Land Rover.

You have to have a newer garmin Nuvi for this to work with it.
The Bluetooth obII connecter is 80$ if my memory it any good.

Here is an other link if you want more info.

Get a Bluetooth ODB connector/scanner that sends the info wirelessly to an app on your phone.

On android phones, I use an app called Torque Pro:

Here's the scanner I use with it:

I'm not sure which device and app is best for iPhones, though...

CarWasher Try the Scan Gauge II. It monitors a number of different functions an just plugs into the OBD2 port.

Some of the choices made by the Chrysler engineers are just plain silly... they apparently got some sort of bulk special deal on 14mm bolts to use in all of the slightly larger 9/16 holes.

Read the last few pages of this thread here:

MagicMtnDan My 10 so far:

1. Tint front windows and windshield (lightest tint with UV filter to keep the Jeep cool on hot days here in the SFV)

2. Bestop underseat boxes customized
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f118/be...er-318025.html

3. Cobra CB radio with Firestick 4' on Teraflex bracket

4. Upgraded headlights from Rallylights.com
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f132/tr...id-314289.html
Hella E-Code H4 Headlamps with Xenon plus 50% - 50% brighter than stock bulb – no blue; awesome bulb.

5. KC Hilites 7317 brackets for the A pillars to carry my Rigid Industries Dually Spots
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/jk-...ts-297257.html


6. LoD Rocksliders
Not nearly as popular as the Ace rock rails but IMO these are a better product due to strength and their coverage/protection



7. sPOD
This is, IMO, the best aftermarket product I've ever seen. It's a great design and very well engineered. It works great and couldn't be easier to install. Two thumbs up!

8. Mopar front light bar (on order) for more Rigid Industries LED lights

9. Jeep (Mopar) fuel filler door - Jeep should've included this in the price (and a Homelink too)

10. Weathertech floor liners - the best units made

Don't forget to get a valet key made and stick it under the hood somewhere in case you accidentally lock your keys in the Jeep far from home. Ask me how I know this
Hey Devil, if you drive with the doors off, you cant lock yourself out. LOL

sandnsaltwater Needed to subscribe to this thread so I thought I would give my 2 cents on the wife vs GF thing....I was married at a young age for 13 years. Divorced and was SINGLE from age 30-41, learned a lot that I carried over to being married again...Most importantly...ALWAYS have sex like you are his girlfriend! It allows me to spend money like a wife should and drive a new Jeep

There's a sticky on this. Your stock TB and CA 14mm bolts are threaded 100% from the factory. This can and will wear the mount holes. The 9/16 are shouldered and a little bit bigger to take up the slop and not wear the holes. 18 fine thread and locking nuts are included.

The bride and I go on vacations without the kids and her most common phrase is, "again?"
