Default What did you do to your Jeep today?

I snagged this from another forum and thought id toss it in here as well
I like the idea of a forum where everyone has the SAME basic vehicle and this will give everyone ideas on upgrades.
Rules:
doesnt have to be something YOU did but it does have to be done to YOUR jeep
meaning for instance I took jeep to shop and had new gears installed/
doesnt have to be TODAY but in recent past
no limit to how many posts and upgrades

I'll start
for instance if you did nothing on it for a specific reason post that
Today I took kids to school and picked them up too cold to work on it today


You can post pics as well I guess

Good Idea on the thread


Well today I cursed at it cuz I'm trying to replace my leafsprings and one of the weld nuts broke and another is stuck on the bushing.

Then I said sorry and that I didn't mean it

Well I spent 30 minutes getting my drivers door to unlock, didn't feel the need to have to start crawling in and out of the passanger side. I also started the hunt as to where my leak is that is causing the carpet in the back to become soaked every time it rains, no luck there yet though.

My carpet in the back gets wet as well.... or did.... check your weather stripping around the hatch, and then along the top of the hatch opening there is a built in little trough to redirect water out and down the sides, if there are any leaves or straw or anything like that in there it will cause it to leak.

FYI I thought I had the same issue even had a mechanic tell me that it was coming from the oil dipstick but come to find out it was actually the fuel pressure sensor whihc is just below the dipstick and it was spraying up to the basic area of the dipstick... my two cents the sensor was cheap like 15 bucks or so. like 5 minutes of work fixed a three month headache
