    Well this explains why:

    1. I liked the Gray Wheels on my KK Renegade so much...
    2. I'm sick of this Ram 1500, and it's not that I hate the truck, I just want my Jeep back...
    3. I'm obsessed with Jeeps...

    Ahhh, the days of rolling around in my little Power Wheels Jeep Safari. I think this is why I've never had a Wrangler, I really want a CJ. Screw anything else...

    ... except this for my kid....

    Modified of course for longer run time because those stock PW batteries suck still, even to this day.

    They do, both of my kids had those PW things, they last 20 mins on a charge and take 12 hours to charge...

    Both my Liberty and the wife's Ford Edge are paid off, but the Harley isn't, and we're holding the paper on both our children's cars, so if they default we get stuck with those payments, plus we still got another 7 years before the mortgage is done.......could be a while before I can do anything about new wheels......:freak3:

    I wish the guy that invented the constant tension radiator hose clamps (like they put on at the factory) had them installed where the sun don't shine. Those %$#^ things should be outlawed!

    W4KTL here, have the Yaesu mounted on the side of the console. Plan at some point getting a dual-bander with remote head but I hardly ever use the 2 meter so I'm in no rush. Run Kenwood HF rigs at home.

    Dumb broad in an Audi Q5 hit me...pass side rear fender. Mine will buff almost all the way out, no dent. Her little fog light plastic ring thing cracked and she's got my khaki on her black paint.

    Other than that, it was an okay weekend.

    Oh yeah, and Dropkick Murphys concert was AWESOME!

    Me too...which is why I drive a KJ. Otherwise, I'd have no license.

    Another one of my window regulators broke the other day just as I got on the interstate for a 6 hour drive. My Jeep dealership is now replacing all four windows. Only the rear driver side one broke, but what the hell, might as well replace all of them so they'll last a few more months before the regulators break again.

    "Knock on Wood"......I've yet to have any window regulator issues with my '05 Liberty, heard so many others who did, but I've "so far" been one of the lucky ones.......and I use my power windows a lot......

    If I recall, somewhere on either this forum or over at LOST, someone mentioning an after market replacement regulator for the KJ's, don't remember the brand name, price, or vendor, but I do remember talk of a better unit than stock Chrysler.......

    Steiger I think, might be Stieger. Something like that.

    Well upon replacing the t stat on the LR3, I found out it and the KJ use the same coolant! :D

    yup, steiger

    http://www.steigerperformance.com/products/sp13001.html

    When my drivers rear window reg went out I had all 4 replaced (about 2 years ago during the summer)

    My Pass rear reg is broken/breaking - I'm hoping it'll hang in there till after the winter and then i'll just replace all 4 with steiger parts

    I already have enough parts ready for install in the jeep at the moment without adding 4 window regulators to the list
