Changed the oil this morning, so cold out there, all business to quickly get the job done.

Dang. You must have HAD to get the oil changed today. Bot sure I would have voluntarily done that today. Heck, I am looking at my CJ in the driveway knowing all of the work I need to do to it and just can’t get motivated. Way too cold.

Its been overdue for a couple weeks and have the day off, so it made sense until I got out there and my coffee was ice coffee in about a minute.

I run synthetic (Rotella T-6) in my TJ and don't put a "lot" of miles each year - maybe 10k.  I only change it every 6-9 months, just to avoid things like this.  Sometime over the next few weeks I will probably change it - or not.....

I'm just noticing that this is what your garage looks like when you don't drive a CJ, YJ, TJ, or XJ!   :lol

I’m a little too OCD about the garage.  But I’ll get there. :lol

Installed my Bestop tire carrier and made a decent attempt at restoring a rusted out winch. It’s going back together today so wish me luck.

Got some work done on the KJ today. Welded in a patch panel on the bottom of the rocker. Not my best work but it will do. Also changed the rear gear oil and took some measurements for the axle swap while I had it on the lift.

Good to be pro-active and bite that now before  it bites you later.

Finished taking the TJ back to stock, mostly, and drove it for the first time. I must admit there's something nice about having a clean TJ on 31" tires.  That said, now to get it sold!

With the help of Rob (R3) I began the install of the MegaSquirt 3 EMS System V3.57 engine management system this weekend.

I began by ripping all of the wiring out of the engine bay, kind of wished I had taken better notes. Next I ffound a place for the EMS. Unlike the factory ECM the the MegaSquirt 3 is not water / weather proof so I ending up giving up half of my glove box to have it in a well protected location.



Now begins the harness build along with a steady flow of amazon boxes to fill the gapsss between what I thought I needed and I really need.



Stay tuned with any luck the CJ will be running before Christmas...

Didn't you have the Mopar Performance System? Why in the world would you go to MegaSquirt?
