    Cleaned my throttle Body and the sensors. Hopefully it will run a bit better. I will find out tomorrow when I take it to work.

    Finally replaced the running and brake lights with LED bulbs. Now just waiting for the reverse lights LEDs. I'm told there are "error free" LEDs that work for the turn signals without resistors, but I'm going to need more info before I jump on that.

    I did brake and reverse w/LED and left the turns alone. I might reconsider the turns if I replace the front w/smoke lenses, but for right now they do their job and i don't have to worry about resistors, extra wiring, or not knowing a bulb burned out w/o warning.

    Only OME
    There are no struts on Libertys
    Hard to find UCA from JBA, I do know of a set hiding out, will check on them
    I may still have some NOS 02-04 fog lights, no wiring but the lights and mounts will check this weekend

    remove the trilink again to finally solve the issues i have been having. i did notice the axle appears be shifted slightly to the drivers side. Hoping fixing the rear suspension will put the body back inline.

    Not exactly what I did "on " the KJ but started pricing , looking at what kind of etc on tires.
    Almost time for new ones and since I always like to try new styles ,looking around , reading reviews , trying to figure out which ones, and no, will never be any junk BFGs
    Possibly
    Hercules Terra Trac AT II
    Hankook DynaPro AT
    Falken Wildpeak AT 3W
    Cooper DiscovererAT 3
    Drive on one lane dirt roads, 1.5 lane county roads and 2 lane state highways daily ( well about 70-75 miles ) And its all hills , up and down , all the way until I decide to retire for the 3rd time :happy175:
    Yes we have snow :emotions34:

    The 04 took out a total of 4 deer, one Camry and a GMC pickup with the ARB over the years
    RL rear bumper / hitch took out a PT Snoozer and a Pontiac Grand Prix ( both had to be towed away )
    So you're getting a good start so far, starting little but they will get bigger :happy175:

    Small steps...

    I have done in a few deer over the years. Not with the KJ and nothing totalled yet. Saw a guy hit a black bear with a Dodge Aspen wagon once. Moved the engine block into the firewall... the bear walked away (laughing I think).

    Nope. He left before the Trooper got there; must've had warrents or unfinished business.

    Didn't even offer to pay for the mirror. Just how wildlife is.

    replaced the trilink, so now the rear feels much better, did some front bumper trimming to help with rubbing. thought the trilink was the source of the noise over bumps well it wasnt all of it. it seems like the bushings on the shocks are to big cause i can twist them a little which im guessing means they are the source of the noise over bumps.

    My KJ sees as many miles as yours does now in the same conditions, I love my Hankooks so far. About 5-10k into them and they look new still. They are perfect in the snow.
    Second runner up was the Falkens, but Walmart screwed up the order so I got the Hankooks instead. They'd be good too.
    I didn't like the Coopers since they don't have a rim bead protector.
