    Make them put in HOAT at their cost. They did it wrong. And no, green is NOT better than HOAT on a vehicle spec'ed for HOAT.

    Had all 5 tires balanced after noticing what looked to be where weights once were after washing it on Saturday...I know not very exciting.

    I put gas in it for what will probably be the last time for the next I don't know how long- until I decide to go off-roading or need a spare vehicle should one of the others kick it.

    2003 KJ Limited 4x4 with 3" lift kit and 152,000 miles isn't worth much of anything to anyone else but me. I'd hate to sell it off, barely have room at home to just keep it around (going to anyhow), so I might as well just park it, toss some fresh oil in it and fuel stabilizer and leave her be. Isn't worth the hassle to sell it for $1500 or so, which is about all I'd expect to get for it around here.

    Put a new NAPA Legend Premium battery in it before winter. 800 CCA, 985 CA. Cleaned up the terminals, put protectant on the posts and terminals.

    It hasn't started like this in well over a year.

    I repaired the wire on the speedometer sensor where the emergency brake cable rubbed it in two. Now the cruise control works again and the speedometer isn't fluctuating.

    Brought it back to get the throttle body switched to my original one. I'm now idling at 12.2% vs 12.9% and it's not sticking at 14-16% when I let off the gas pedal.

    Also, last chance if anyone wants to pick up my old engine. I'm not really asking for anything(but I wouldn't say no if offered, as I'm still recovering from the fire), but it just needs to be picked up in Long Branch NJ: https://imgur.com/a/WON2wAp

    It's dirty because the weather can't make up it's mind and because it isn't a garage queen it's gets driven daily. Finally clear flat plate covers installed.

    I do plenty of that from A the previous owner and B parking lot morons that have no respect for other peoples property. Always have a bottle of Scratch Remover and pads for when I find something new to remove.

    worked on the stock wheels more today.
    got 2 of them cleaned and primed.
    That Eastwood etching primer, is an awesome product, btw.
    Still trying to decide what color to paint them.
    was just suggested.... Plum Crazy Purple. :D

    Language, this is a family friendly site. Let's see some pictures of the wheels. I like the look of the stock wheels, wish they had a little more offset
