60s and sunny in Feb meant a top down carpool run.
Damn you @John Cooper! You made me feel lazy and forced me to break out the "waterless" car wash.
p.s. When I was done, my wife asked if I would wash hers too.

Dropped my oil pan to try to solve this knocking sound in my second hand engine. All the piston skirts are in tact and there is no serious play in the rod bearings. The one that I thought was the loosest I pulled the cap off and inspected and cleaned the bearing insert and then put some Red Line assembly lube on it and put it all back together. I put some Mopar 5w 20 in it because my 2.5 seemed to hate the rotella 15w40. I fired it up and no sounds on the first go. A lot better than before so hopefully it will last and keep running until I get my original engine rebuilt.

That’s as bad as the PO of mine ONLY used it to back his JetSki into the sea….. ☹️. Rusted the back wheels, brakes, tail pipe pretty sure it’s the whole trailer would’ve been submerged hahaThe PO only used it to get to the store in the snow.
Congrats on Firing it up…. that has to feel good don’t it ?
It looked lonely waiting out the salt season, so purchased a companion. New summer driver for the resident love goddess.

While this is fresh, anyone recommend a good jk forum? Seems I've got some learning to do. One can only hope there is as good a forum available for jk as this one.
Drove it to the bank, then came home and gave it a much needed bath. Going to drive it to work tomorrow.

The first week of February and I washed Old Yeller outside
