Colder plugs for the M and a tighter gap. Man I had to move lots of stuff.

Had to change out the TB because of it kicking into reduced engine power. Didn't have time to trial and error cleaning it as the wife is DD it.

And swapped the rear shocks.Name:  20180710_170950.jpg

how's that 6th gen treating you ?

I dream about them everyday but the want for a house with more garage space is the wiser option.

Washed Barney today.
I got caught in rain a couple weeks ago, so it needed it bad.

Changed out the cabin filter in the bmw. Methinks it was due.



Wasn't difficult, but ze germans definitely dont make it easy. 2 10mm bolts, tear off the underside panel, disconnect the footwell light, 2 t15 torx screws on the filter housing, a couple clips to open the lid, then and only then do you have access to your filter.

Also did make me a little nervous working down there with my face 2 inches away from the knee airbag tho. Especially when I had to pound on that panel a little to get the clips to snap back in when I put it back together

Shit, that filter looks downright new. The last one I changed was literally black with sticks, seeds, and leaves in it.

Luckily Ford and Honda make it super easy, unhinge the glovebox, and it’s right behind a little clipped door, all of 2 minutes

FINALLY!!! After screwing up and ordering the wrong wiring because the website was wrong I got a few hours to get the new HU in. More bells and whistles to figure out but the sound is a lot clearer and the maps arenít from 2012. iPhone interface is awesome and it scared the shit out of me because the factory setting for guidance volume was at 100%.

After using vice grips the 4 months I've owned my Cherokee, I finally replaced the rear hatch struts and no longer hit my head
