Inaugural oil change this morning. I collected a sample, mid-drain, to send off to Blackstone for analysis.

More to the point, there are too many "They put in six quarts instead of five!" posts on this forum for me to consider submitting my vehicle to the tender mercies of the Jeep Wave free oil change benefit.

What speakers did you use?
Really nice! Details?
I ordered the gear from Crutchfield. The speakers in the sound bar are JBL club 602c and in the dash are JBL club 322F. The dash speakers fit without any mods but it was a very snug fit. The sound bar speakers used the svv works adapters. I removed the sound bar and used an oscillating saw for the woofer cut and hole saws for the tweeters. for me the wiring on the adapters supplied from Crutchfield were are backwards so I had to take everything apart and switch those around. I got hung up on the sound bar trying to figure out how to remove the trim on the sound bar itself. FWIW the dome light snaps in with clips and sandwiches the trim to the frame of the roll bar. I got a little frustrated a couple of times but all and all it wasn't difficult.

Put in the Overtread Skyline LED headlights, ordered from Quadratec. Halo’s hooked up with micro fuse to fuse box, fuse 52. Really easy install. Upgrade from halogens and I’m still amazed about the difference in light output. Low beam and hi-beam comparison below.

When you say no rubbing, do you mean no rubbing on the front tires when wheels are at full lock? If there is no rubbing, why do you need spacers?
No rubbing at full turn while stopped. My concern is rubbing while full turn in movement or while running a trail

Forgot to add, it’s less than an inch of no rubbing at full lock but don’t wanna take a chance on a bump or hill. Ordered 2 inch wheel spacers to fix that.

Installed my Midland GMRS on an MPS Holster mount and my VoSwitch JL300.

I would like to do the VoSwitch JL 300 sometime down the road. I've seen a couple different ways people have ran the wiring into the cab. Curious what route you went and how the install was?

I have an automatic and I was wiring in the GMRS antenna as well, (it is mounted just in front of the drivers door) so I took both wires through the grommet used for clutch systems. I just popped it out and drilled a hole in it to fit both the VoSwitch control wire and the antenna wire.

this morning I missed a gear and pressed the gas and the needle went up quick ... I felt the rush of adrenaline hit me , the motor was still cold as block of ice after very cold night .. but than I think these new synthetic oils are supposedly to be exceptionally great during low temp lubrication .. anyways I think I'll sleep well tonight
