    -put more JB weld on the coolant reservoir neck, hopefully it'll contain the leak.

    -reglue the metal button to the windshield that holds the rear view mirror.

    07 Liberty Limited-just upgraded to a Kenwood KMM-BT518HD, Yay Bluetooth and HD radio, I missed you!
    Noticed right off that the max volume of the Kenwood is 40 and barley tickles the factory speakers, bass is there, barely. So right now max sound volume is like a 20 to 25 on the OEM headunit...Need more volume.
    Bought 4 Boss 6.5 Inch 300 Watt 3-Way's and waiting on crutchfield to deliver Speaker brackets for the install session. But even with the front door factory AMPs still feeding the speakers, I fear that the sound quality will worsen with the better speakers
    TO my Question
    I have a OLD Mono Soundforce 850watt AMP, Any way I can wire that up to maybe the rear doors?
    Right now its attached to the box with 850 watt sub (prev Ride was a pickup)

    Clearly you have never drive I-94 from downtown Detroit to Ann Arbor. I'd take those corrugations over that stretch of highway ANY DAY. It's like a road built with chunks of broken concrete mixed into rubble. Those dust holes you guys have? Yeah, we got those, only yours are lucky enough to be filled with dust. Ours are just holes in the road that go down 12".

    Hit that $hit at 75mph and you're cracking cast wheels and popping tires left and right.

    Those corrugated roads in Au are bad, indeed. But at least aired down tires and GOOD shocks will help. Probably also slowing down, but then it'd take you all day to go 200Km.

    Found myself looking miserable on the Mint 400 broadcast. I promise I'm actually excited to be there.

    Besides that today the KJ is getting new wheel hubs. Replacing them under Moogs warranty. Just rebuilt my JBA balljoints last Sunday.

    Still have the CRD coilover springs that need to get swapped in but having a real hard time getting the shaft seperated from the clevis. I'm going to pull the whole coilover and see if I can grab the shaft at the bottom with a bench vise. Won't matter if I Mar the surface at the bottom because it'll never touch the seal.

    Oh boy, its parked.

    Yes its parked again. This time it seem to be the starter. I had replaced it last year. What would be the best starter brand to get. Will a starter from AutoZone or O'Reily's be ok. The other thing is, do I have to remove the front drive shaft to get the starter out? Any tips or tricks would be helpful.

    Was it a distinctive clunk on the 2-3 shift under light acceleration?

    Fender Flares

    Changed my original scratched up fender flares for some refinished renegade ones i got at a junk yard. Got rid of the fake bolts and put real ones in with the help of a drill and rivnuts on the body of the jeep.

    threw a code last night, p0304, so i picked up a new set of plugs and a new coil for #4, also noticed the radiator has started to leak at the infamous spot on the drivers side end cap. got over 4 years out of this one, so i will be picking up another new oem coolant cap and swapping the radiator at napa, gotta love that lifetime warranty.

    Want to replace the rubber slip lines used to temporarily stop the trans cooler lines from leaking. Well it’s been a year and they are getting bad.
    So I went looking for the lines online can’t find any. Dealer wants 250 bucks.
    Anyone know where to find trans lines 2003 3.7 42r for a decent price ?

    No, sorry. Ihave an ‘05 so that likely wouldn’t help, anyway.

    Jeep is in pretty good shape, so not too much to report....
    Driver's side spring likes to collect rust, so thought before winter might as well add some brush on rust paint there.
