How do you like the 4wd shifter & where did you purchase it from?
Thanks
I love them both. I ordered from morris4x4 they have free shipping over $75 and at the time I ordered they were offering $40 off of a $400 or more purchase.

April 15, 7am here in Chicago. Snowing a little here the morning in Chicago also. Just a light dusting of snow but apparently icy roads. At least 54 cars were involved in a accident with 14 transported to hospitals, 34 evacuated, and many treated on the spot. They had to close the expressway in one direction.

I don't ever recall such a large number of cars involved in a single accident here? I am very surprised by the large numbers involved in that accident. Especially since we are under sheltering in place orders. I guess some people did't get the memo.

My wife is a retired nurse that worked downtown. She mentioned the roads are more crowded at this time of the morning in the downtown direction, as many medical professionals are on their way to work at the 3 major hospitals by the Circle.

Grew up and lived there for 35 years. Been in AZ for 5. Do not miss dealing with that garbage, especially in April. Year we moved, my wife wanted a mountain bike for her birthday (MAY 16th.) She couldn’t ride it on her birthday because we got 4 inches of snow. Be safe!

Installed K&N Cabin Filters - my 9 month old stock one was pretty dirty already (we get a lot of dust in the summer and the usual city air pollutants).

Super easy, sub 2 minute, install. Will now know that 6-9 months should be the rough amount of time to pull and clean them.

I am downtown. There is always a traffic jam around North Ave. I just did not expect a 50+ car pile up. Especially when there is supposed to be less cars on the road. I supposed fewer cars might have made it worse. Bumper to bumper kind of limits your speed. Less traffic means higher speeds and less time to respond.

I am very thankful and greatful for all the medical personal, first responds and anyone else who is essential who has to be out there. Hopefully no one was hurt.

I have been meaning to take a look at mine. Going to replace both filters this week.

Took my 2018 Jeep JL Rubicon in for servicing when I noticed a set of take off Fox Gladiator Rubicon shocks for sale in the parts department and asked if they could be put on my JL.
Sure enough, they can and I bought them. A tad smoother ride and looks great.

Added @CavFab_mfg ultra clearance bumper...only weighed about 55lbs and definitely added clearance over the stock bumper. Also chopped rubi fenders and added Quake LED fender DRL/turn signal kit last wk. Ordered Motobilt inner liners. Replaced Rock Krawler LCA's with Metalcloak...painted them black with POR 15 brush on paint.
