    Installed external voltage regulator. Now trying to figure why the AC won't engage. And the rad fan intermittently works. Though runs fine if I jiggle the relay 3 times....any relay in that socket does it, this is happening simply to vex me.

    It's where the girls in yoga pants go when they're not posing for pictures on the Internet.

    I replaced all the cracked hoses from the fuel vapor canister to the EVAP purge valve on the 02. I hope the CEL goes away now, kept getting a P0442 code.

    Was experiencing reception and quality issues with my factory 6 disc in dash radio.. especially after installing the aux in port, so I got tired of it, plus the faded button screenprinting, half of the illumination was burned out... so I installed my "old" Pioneer DEH-P7800mp. I've had that head unit for ever. It's awesome.

    $20 install kit from Amazon delivered next day, boom, she's in. Had to go back and connect the remote wire to power the amps, otherwise no speaker sound. Eventually might install the steering wheel controls kit, unsure. But so far so good!

    Had a compression test done, to see if it's even worth pulling the engine to fix the leaking oil pan gasket.
    Cylinder 1- 135psi, 2- 120psi, 3- 125psi, 4- 160psi, 5- 115psi, 6-170psi.
    :(

    I came close to overheating the Jeep and when searching for the problem found this:

    DC418249-07B5-42CF-89BC-30CC2767547D.jpeg

    The plug had been ripped out of where it hangs, and beat around by the serpentine belt. Still don’t know what caused this, or if it can be fixed without buying a new fan. One of the wires, the black wire, came out of the connector completely.

    EDIT: The fan still works, I reassembled it and braced it away from the belt, turned on the truck, and the the fan came on and the truck was nice and cool again, with properly working ac. The connector needs to be replaced, but I may be able to cobble together a short term fix for it.

    Swapped coil 2 and 3 to try to track down the misfire in Cylinder 2. Also cut 1.5" off my coolant return line to try to eliminate the leak there.

    Ordered some new Falken Wildpeak's to be installed on Friday. Duratracs are finally at the point of needing to be replaced. I definitely got my money's worth out of them.
