I replaced my fog light bulbs, had one blow-out last week so I dug my old ones out of storage.
I never throw anything away lol.

1999 TJ 2.5 I4, 5 Speed

i drove out to the island and watched the waves for a few minutes, then i went out and talked to a classic car ac place to get the evaporator for my jeep. i also went trail riding a little bit. then i filled up and calculated my mileage on the first tank with the four barrel carb and got 12.9 mpg. 1.9 better then the motorcraft carb and all in town driving so the highway mpg should be awesome
 
Unfortunately, I am away from home so here it is: I wish I was home to finish my new parts for my YJ and then install them and take my beloved Jeep for a ride smoking a long fat cigar. It will be even better if my beloved daughter (FLJeepgurl) was riding along side my Jeep on her TJ. oh well time to wake up and realize that I am in a hotel room in Oklahoma City and that I will have to wait until the weekend to do that....LOL good night everybody!
 

Drove it into a tree. Then over the tree then into a swamp.
 
jester32!!!! I hope that was intentional. I looked at my dash to figure out how I would drill 6 1/2" holes for speakers.
 

Haha. Wasn't very big but bent my tie rod sleeve. Didn't have my chainsaw and it was only way through haha. I am now fixing my front end lol
 
Drove to work. Got mud on my uniform when I was getting out. :(
Laughed when I came out to the jeep to find it had rained while i was at work, washed some Kentucky off, and left a mud pile in the parking garage. :)

Gave both of mine a good wash and wax job and detailed the inside. Then I took off the hardtop on the yj and put the softtop back on. Lastly I changed the oil in both and checked all the fluids. All day job but I enjoyed the heck out of it.
 
Went to the local hardware store, and on my way out saw the driver of the Jk checking out my Jeep. I didn't get to talk to him but I thought it was pretty cool for him to be admiring mine when he had a new one

Fixed my tie rod sleeve did alignment. Only to rip my muffler open on a log now it sounds like a ricer. Bleh. Gave it Alberta car wash.
 

Found out my starter is in need of replacement as its starting to get stuck in certain spots and i have to whack it woth a rubber mallet to free it up.

Dig out my old g-tech pro and put it in the jeep. I must be off on the weight though because it says i have a 13 second 0-60 and my torque max is 259 at 15 or 1700 rpms while having only 80hp.

I am going to weigh it tomorrow and then run again
 
But not having shift points is probably not helping either as it shifts at 1700 rpm whether its floored or deiving like a grandma
 
Took the hard top off and did the 25 mile comute to work this morning. 1st freeway cruise without the top. Kinda windy, 50 deg but wasn't too bad at all. Going home later should be nice 8) and warmer.
