Failed inspection this morning because the rear brakes were too rusty. I was afraid of that, but it was too brutal to do them last week in my backyard (no garage). Today was slightly less hot and less humid, with a bit of a breeze, so I did it after work.

Same as the fronts; Power Stop Evolution ceramic pads, Bendix rotors.

Out with the old...


In with the new…


The inspector told me I'd done a good job sanding/wire brushing and rust converting. He said I missed a couple spots on the brake lines, so he did them for me Wink

This is why these guys inspect all my vehicles.

Running great.

I got a set of Mopar skid plates from a guy who upgraded; just need to sand, prime and paint them and bolt them up.

Still have the front differential oil to change, the belt & tensioner to replace (after I clean up the pulleys a bit) and the sway bar end links and bushings to replace.

I'm very happy with it Wink

Picked up a set of rock rails - cheap!







Guy was going to modify his Grand Cherokee to put them on but changed his mind. Now I don't have to remove, sand, prime and paint mine!

Drove it - a lot - this weekend. Got 18.1 mpg in mixed driving, 21.2 straight highway. Both with all 3 of us and stuff in the back.

Not so bad Smiley

Got the emissions 'test' on the Jeep today - good to go for 2 years.

Sounds like it was worth the investment! Including labor too.

Changed the front diff oil today, wiped out all the remains of bug eggs (the weird tiny little translucent orange/red clusters) that gathered while I was trying to get out the cigarette smoke and cleaned the inside of the windshield.

Got this in yesterday and did a quickie test on the Astro (Jeep's at the back of the yard  Cheesy )





With a real antenna, it'll be perfect. All I had for the quickie test was a magnetic mount. We had taken the big antenna off the RV so we could put the tarp on it for storage, so that was out.

I like that it's convertible, coming with the mobile mount (12v adapter with antenna adapter together, making it even shorter), a regular 6-battery compartment and an 8-battery rechargeable compartment with AC charger. Has a button to switch to NOAA weather, a button to switch between channels 9, 19 and whatever you're on, will monitor 2 channels you set, etc.

They get smaller all the time!
I used to be into CB'S big time but don't even use one any more.
Still a couple of old base radios and one mobile still in the box.

Don't they, though?

They really only come in handy when you're traveling in a convoy or playing off-road.
