When I can, I will always buy Milwaukee tools, but HF tools work in a pinch. Get on their mail list for coupons and sales. Check Sundays food ads for 20% - 25% off "one item" plus free stuff. Have a friend or family member go with and use 2 coupons. I bought a $2.99 tire patch kit, got 25% off and a set of screwdrivers for free. Cheap, yea, but even my 25 year old Milwaukees don't get abused and rarely need service. JMO.

I want a bandsaw, would make building brackets and such, so much easier for me.

I'm going to build new shock towers up front out of 1/8 plate and try and make them fancy. I'll let you know how that goes. And I'm running $30 shocks lol

That is part of the problem. Zero codes. Swapping out an O2 sensor would a piece of cake. I just don't want to buy one if it's not needed.

The MAP sensor I tested twice. It's good. I will keep you guy's updated as to what progress if any I make tomorrow.

Basically I'm just requesting any tips as far as greasing or lubing anything; or any other important factors I should take care of while I do the install. Also I live in covina so if anybody wants to have a jeep meet or even help me out with my install I would appreciate it. Thanks jeepers, after two years I'm excited to finally give my jeep some love!
