    Never had any deep fried pickles. However, I think I need some now. Sounds awesome.

    If you are serious, this is why your tires are hitting the flares, junk lift on junk stock springs and shocks
    And yes throw that hot air sucker away

    Not a car, it's a JEEP. KJ is the model designation. Not picking on you but making you aware.

    The OEM intake is a true CAI. Sorry, but you made it a "hot air intake" with that aftermarket junk stuff. Not good.

    The budget lift is your problem. Throw it away and replace it with an OME or equivelent. Check out our lift threads that work on the KJ.

    Tom is right and knows more about JEEPS than God.......LOL

    Witnessed a hit and run on Friday while making deliveries in the work van.

    I noticed a guy driving erratically in front of me and sure enough, a few blocks later he plowed into another car waiting to make a left turn. I was about to stop and check on the drivers when he barreled past me. So, I followed him a few more blocks until he got stuck in traffic at a red light. I hopped out, ran up past a few cars and took a pic of his license plate, then called 911 to report it. Hope they caught the bugger.

    You should run over from time to time and check to see if they are using HF tools to build it. If they aren't, ask them why not? :gr_grin:

    I rarely buy their tools... but they're a great place for my nit-noid supplies.

    I actually have quite a number of HF tools , sockets etc . Had them 10-12 years or more, some have been used on over 55 KJs for example and no problems . Their impact sockets have taken a beating over the years. Of course wrenches etc still have Craftsman I bought back in 70-72 .

    I love the old Craftsman stuff I either bought years ago or inherited. New stuff from them isn't the same. I've got a collection of HF handtool stuff too. It's been fine for my needs. haven't broken a one.

    I have 2 HF's equi-distant from my house. One just recently had a brand new gun range build adjacent to them. That's DANGEROUS on a number of levels. :D

    My tools are mostly Craftsman.
    The tool kit I keep in the Jeep is almost entirely HF stuff. Good enough for when I need them, but cheap enough if I never need them.
    My 12v mini air compressor in the Jeep is also from HF and it's been stellar over the years.

    HF impact sockets have been known as good for a long time. I have a set of 1/2" drive deepwell sockets from there that works well. Daytona floor jack that i love. Only thing I've bought from there that I've had to return have been torque wrenches...if I did precise stuff I'd get a nicer one. But I don't think lugnuts care if they get 100ft lbs or 95 or 105. :D

    I just thought I'd mention that today is the last day to get a tax write-off* for donating to the Prof Jeep Upgrade Fund.

    *I am not a registered charity, so you won't get diddly squat. I could use the money, though...

    Actual Craigslist ad for a Cherokee , and yes there is a Texas Ohio, below Toledo, been there LOL
    Cory Mccaughey is at Toledo Speedway.

    Are you looking for a great get to work (hopefully) vehicle? Do you like 14mpg and 4wd? Do you like the classic 2 tone look of a salvage title vehicle? Look no further than this 2001 Elizabeth Warren (Cherokee sport). This thing is a beast in the light snow and medium rain. Dont let its pretty exterior fool you this thing will get you more action than my half retarded friend Chris. I'd drive this thing to Texas (ohio) and back.

    The positives

    It starts, runs, and drives

    4.0l straight 6 (basically a Cummins on gas)

    Has a tape deck for your fav bell biv devoe tape (doubles as I phone holder)

    Gets most radio stations

    The only thing that leaks are the ladies as you drive by

    The engine light is on to let you know that there is still an engine

    400 miles left on the oil change

    Non smoker owned at some point

    Wipers work, just not the squirter (my fav word)

    Somehow the power windows, mirrors, and locks work and has a fob

    The heat is as luke warm as junkie in a McDonald's bathroom

    Almost everything has been replaced the past 3 years. AUTOZONE WARRANTY BABY!!!

    Will leave bumper stickers on it at no extra charge

    Has tow package. (That's a hitch and a plug. My dumbass pulled way more than I should have)

    Has 2 roof racks for some reason (slaps roof, do you know how many coolers you can tie down on this thing)

    Seats fold flat, plenty of room for activities

    The negative

    Ask your mom, she's in it most weekends. (See above)

    No cruise control

    Rear wiper inop

    I dropped a half-eaten gordita few weeks back and never found it

    I work for a living, the interior reflects that. It's a go to work jeep

    Might still smell like my ex (mix of mud cricket and reused Copenhagen)

    230,000 glorious miles young

    A/c quit (roll the window down you pussy)

    Left front tire leaks (holds air better than a Tom Brady football)

    Still driving till the title comes back on the new ride, should be next week.

    Don't bother with carfax, I wrecked the shit out of it in 2016, guess who got paid!!!

    Trades considered (diesel trucks, high end cars, ect. You add cash)

    Might throw in beer bong for extra $$$

    No low ballers I know what I got

    If you gotta ask how much, you can't afford it

    Not accepting payments, partial payments, or anything else of that nature. ( blame my lowlife brother-in-law)

    Pm me with offers

    Ps, it's name is wimpy. If you don't know why, see you next Tuesday
