I went wheeling for the second day in a row, and then I went grocery shopping. It was kind of funny. The clock in the main dash got stuck at 6:45 pm until I eventually shut the Jeep off. I looked at the clock, and still had lots of time left, so I did a longer trail. Ended up trying out the new light bar. Good practice for fall. Winter is coming! (That light bar throws out a stupid amount of light.)

Two years ago, I broke a rule of mine and shopped price instead of quality when purchasing a pressure washer. Two weeks after the warranty expired, the ChiCom pump crapped out, because of course it did.

The broken internals were replaced with factory parts, using the schematic for failsafe guidance, but it still doesn't work.

Well, lesson learned. I just returned from purchasing a proper replacement.

Mm. I've had my eye on a properly nice tailgate table for the Jeep, but I've enough work for a pressure washer (fence, mower decks, patio, etc.) that priorities won the day.

I've started taking some longer trips with the Jeep, haven't really done this since the initial 8 hour trip home from the dealer.
The engine must finally be broken in, I've gone from 17 to 23mpg. For a V6 Rubicon I think this is great.

Honda motors FTW. I've got one on a Troy-bilt pressure washer, it's about 13 years old and still going.

Big Red, with the smaller GX270, plows through anything.

My neighbor is going to be ditching his lame Yard Machines snow blower for a Honda this winter. He got tired of asking me to unf*ck his driveway, lol. That's his van and truck in the photo.

I had a small Briggs-powered pressure washer that I used for 10+ years without complaint. It eventually got tired, but it otherwise just kept on ticking. I've no complaints about that brand, but the commercial units all use the Honda GX engines and that's the end of it. :)

HSS928? If so I have the same one. Its a very good machine. So good my neighbor had to buy one of his own, of course being who he is he had to buy the 32" model with the GX390. I still think mine works better as I update the carb main jet and turned up the RPM a bit.

The very same. :) Mine's the -ATD, meaning track-drive and onboard 12V key starting. Did you adjust the throttle to increase the top speed a bit? If so, please PM me the deets.

I just purchased a pressure washer with the GX390 engine. I'm hoping that 13hp beast is an easy pull-start.

Big day for me, new bumper, spray painted my d rings 4xe color, put on 37s, and did a 4.5 inch lift. Super excited! Now it's ready to wheel and I don't have to spend any more money on it :)

What paint code did you use? Is there a link that I can look at....scratched the blue tow hooks while replacing the plastic bumper...would like to get it coated before it starts rusting

Thanks
