    Picked up some Moab wheels from a 2004 TJ off of Craigslist today. They don't look like they've ever seen dirt, like new condition. They've got 265/75 r16 Goodyear MTr's on them about half worn. I know they're too big and heavy, but I might run them for a short while just because I can. I haven't looked too closely yet, but will I need different lug nuts coming from the stock steel rims? Yay for new wheels day!

    I'm gonna need new street tires on the jeep soon. contemplating doing a wheel/tire package and subsequently selling the 4 smooth side MOABs I have. Haven't decided if I'm stupid for thinking about that or not.

    It’s that time of year again for inspection. Right on time I got P0138 and P0158. I’ve replaced sensors almost yearly since 2017 always with the recommended brand. I don’t understand.

    Hmmm, I don't remember either side being difficult. You should mess with a FWD Pentastank. Can't even change the plugs without removing the intake and many other things.

    After the heavy rains last few days, driver's door hinge was really squeaky.
    Bought a can of Fluid film and wow, super quiet now.

    Been using this stuff for years. Love it. See if you can get the extension and cap. I soak the inside door panels at the drip holes and rocker panels and everywhere else it fits

    That is a good question.
    Is it possible that a rich condition or aged motor with oil blow by could somehow damage the 02 sensors? IDK...
    By chance do you have a sooty tailpipe?

    Now I'm intrigued. Gonna give this a try. We need Fluid Film sponsorship!

    From your link above on page 4 Fluid film was offering a free can :) including shipping! (2012 post)
    Anyone up for contacting them and see if we can get a free trial, and ask if they would want to advertise here?

    Put my wheels on today. Went after the pinch welds and found my passenger side wheel well plastic is a cheap paper thin piece of crap that acts more like shrink tube when heated.

    Changed the oil and filter and replaced the oil pressure sender today. That wasn't a whole lotta fun.

    I changed the oil and filter on mine today and it wasn't too bad, it was 40 degrees Fahrenheit but cloudy. I don't know where they hide the oil pressure sending unit on these

    Right above the filter. If you can see it, you can’t get your hand on it - and vice versa.

    Oil and filter change wasn’t bad, as usual. Just that damned sensor.

    Good lord. The oil filter itself bothers me every time. What stupid location not only for access but trying to keep your driveway clean.
    But that pressure switch - haha. I couldn’t for the life of me get it threaded in. What is it - 27mm deep socket ? Too much going on at a weird angle and working blind.
