    I loosened all lca boltsbefore re torqing with it on the ground. Spoke with dealership today, they of course very apologetic and asked if there was anything they could do to restore my trust, so now I'm getting a free alignment on Wednesday, it was on my list anyway.

    When I used to work security at the track directing traffic, You get used to the heat after the initial burn. But I will say after working indoors, you like the shade and sub 75f temps.

    I was getting my oil changed the other day and the people in the office where amazed because some lady got the wrong tire size on her High Altitude 2016 Jeep from the dealer. After 20+ minutes and multiple people checking, they realized one door was replaced, and the one sticker was for the original Jeep. There was an additional sticker on the jeep that was specially ordered b/c it matched the VIN on the hood, but the two stickers disagreed, and only the one that matched the VIN was correct.

    Washed with Chemical guys mr. pink
    Quick wax with Aero Cosmetics Wash Wax All
    Buffed headlight with Miguiars Scratch X 2.0 and a cheap amazon foam buffer that attaches to a drill.

    This is my first time using this stuff. I am not too impressed with the Mr. Pink its car wash think zip wax is better. I love the scratch x the buffing kit and the wash wax all is so easy and leaves a very smooth finish.

    I replaced the front pads and rotors and cleaned up the calipers. One slide pin was stuck but ot moves more freely now. I think ill get a hardware kit for it and replace the slides and boots.
    Unfortunately, i was a little careless when reassembling it all and the ABS sensor on the front right rubbed against the wheel exposing the wires. Now the ABS light is on. Time for a new sensor :Insane:
    On that note, can anyone tell me where i can find the connector for the ABS sensor in the engine bay? Ive included a picture and you can see the ungodly mess of wires im dealing with...

    Right behind the battery on the left and pretty much the same place on the right right on top of the fenders. At least that's where mine are.

    Ordered 2 JBA Y link extensions. Hopefully it will clean up any vibes the 02 has and help save the upper arm. I’ll check with the angle finder again see what the pinion angle is
    Still getting vibes up front...
    The other will be on the 03 when I install the lift.

    It looks clean and sharp.
    That Meguiars Scratch X 2.0 sure is a good product I used to remove the oxidation in the headlights I was impressed by the finish.
    It's good that you have another KJ Bright Silver Metallic.
    It's pretty but I liked the blue pearl you had first. Cheers!

    Curious natural effect that I notice in the first two photos.
    The diagonal shadow on the right side where the fog light is.
    It gives us an idea to create and modify a cut in the bumper without having to eliminate the fog light.
    I have pending to make this type of modification in the not too distant future. Regards!

    Got my free alignment today, everything appears to be in spec other than camber. 0.3°left and 0.4°right. They said camber adjustment was maxed. I've only done a short distance so far, but it seems much more way lots better. Some of the before measurements were really wacky.
