What is the difference between those and the ones Aceofspades has?
I’ll be completely honest when I say I never had the problems with other vehicles that I do with my jeeps. So to me , a hose clamp was always just that - a hose clamp.
The jeep apparently needs everything perfect before it can cruise you along at 13MPG again.
The ones AceofSpades has are just worm gear ones. Constant diameter, but not tension. So in the winter when things get really cold, they stay big while the hose and housing shrinks. The ones I posted have a spring mechanism inside that keep the tension constant, which means the diameter isn't, they work just like the factory ones and maintain a constant tension.
Those will serve you well, I had those on order at Walmart but then they screwed up the order. Was dying to get the Moabs on so I decided on the Hankooks since they were in stock and were the original choice before I heard about the Falkens.
Replaced the worn out spark plugs for some Bosch Platinum plugs.
Bad move the platinum are no good. They have a different resistance to copper and cause problems. In my case misfire and erratic idling

very bad idea
Drove it about 450 miles round trip again. Still getting over 23mpg on the long highway runs. Had a bit of a vibration 70-75 so HAD to keep it at 80. Think I'm due for a tire rotation. Nice weekend but disappointing fall foliage.
i ripped off the hose on the bottom of the windshield washer fluid container with the tires while hunting. guess i need to fix that and trying and move the tank. anyone else have suggestions on where to move or adjust it?
Like we all have , under the hood
so just where ever it fits will work?
The factory clamps work with the gates hoses i used.
might be a problem for me since I have the brain bucket for the plow in that space.
thanks, forgot the search should have been my first move.
Depending on what year, some are way easier than others, for example on my 04, I cut the neck off the washer bottle, then cut about an inch down from the cap. Glued it on the bottle and fit perfect on the right side of the engine bay. My 03 I bought a washer bottle off of amazon a few years back for a 55 Ford project I was putting washer/ wipers on. Used it since it was wired, had pump already to go
Just looked at that write up, LOL , funny did almost the same 6 years before that guy did his , but.....................
The list grows.
Cold starts - cylinder 6 misfire
Shut off and simply restart. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
No idea. Plugs coils and o2 sensors replaced with oem brand last September.
Going to swap out the passenger side o2 again (code popped for it when the cylinder 6 misfire occurred) and warranty the coil pack.
See what happens
My 02 did that a few time too. The misfire was a hard one (flashing CEL) and only #6. Shut off, restart and all good. Never found the cause. :Insane:
Super odd Interesting that it’s not just me experiencing this weird stuff.
Not much I could do to diagnose it at the time since it was so infrequent. I definitely moved the coils (which were the OE ones) more than once during the occurrences. It was definitely only on cold starts too.
