  1. the Walking Dead - the Thread

    Slow opening, but I feel they laid out good ground work, the hospital was a great tie in to the original. Crazy how the kid with the knife is the only one who has a clue.
  2. this is probably the most accurate cause, ive seen this happen in other canbus vehicles after replacing headunit
  3. Who's the oldest / youngest here?

    26 last monday
  4. Watching TV without cable

    they're merging....like yesterday(its not complete yet)
  5. What did you do to your Jeep today?

    still not as cool as a rear winch
  6. Reloaded Bulk Ammo

    ive never shot these loads, why wouldnt you reload?
  7. Reloaded Bulk Ammo

    Dad and i have been thinking about this but start up costs are pretty high. By the time you buy a press, powder, primers, casings, dies etc. You might as well buy 1000 rounds of whatever it is you want to reload. Though i am sure a group buy on equipment and supplies would prob help costs, who knows....
  8. Well that's doesn't look right

    from my research this is only true if have the 3.21 gears (like me) the carrier is a different size from 3.73 and up. which means ill have to do lockers and gears at the same time. so ill be seeing them sometime in the next 5 years
  9. What did you do to your Jeep today?

    far easier than ryans long arm install
  10. What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Changed wiper blades and oil
  11. What did you do to your Jeep today?

    hey thats pretty cool, i have a diehard jumper box with compressor etc, except joey had it at his house and i was up on chester pike in glenolden just glad it happened in a parking lot not on the road somewhere.
  12. What did you do to your Jeep today?

    Spent 2 hours trying to jump start/replacing my battery (twice) yesterday....smh...all good now.
  13. Multi-viscosity Oils.

    By now everyone has noticed and/or used an oil(s) with a multi-viscosity rating. With this post I'd like to take a little time to better explain the science and benefits behind this type of oil when compared against single grade oils. If you already know this information, well then you've done your homework and may continue to the next post, for those who are lost at the mere mention of multi-viscosity then please continue on...   I do not intend on making this a long drawn out read, but rather to make it a little easier to understand without all the extra scientific terms no one wants to read.    First we will start with the basics: Single Grade(straight-weight): An oil that does not change viscosity within its given operating temperature range. "The 11 viscosity grades are 0W, 5W, 10W, 15W, 20W, 25W, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60. These numbers are often referred to as the "weight" of a motor oil, and single-grade motor oils are often called "straight-weight" oils." -pulled from the "motor Oil" Wiki page Multi--Viscosity: An oil that has the ability to change viscosity when exposed to different temperatures within a given operating temperature range. (eg. 0W-30, 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-50) "The 11 viscosity grades are 0W, 5W, 10W, 15W, 20W, 25W, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60. These numbers are often referred to as the "weight" of a motor oil, and single-grade motor oils are often called "straight-weight" oils." -pulled from the "Motor Oil' Wiki page. The "W":: The "W" appended to any number in the weight of an oil stands for "winter" meaning cold-start viscosity to make engine starting in colder temperatures easier.   Now for the fun stuff.  Single Grade: These oils maintain their weight throughout their operating temperature range. Multi-Viscosity: Most people tend to think that multi-viscosity oils operate like table syrup, where cold syrup is thick and viscous and hot syrup is thin and much less viscous, however this isn't true of multi-viscosity oils. In fact, it is quite the opposite, when these oils are at ambient temperatures they are thin, this is where the first number in the grade of the oil comes into play, and easily moved about the engine which aids in start-up at low temps. however when the oil reaches its designated operating temperature(designated by SAE as 100ºC) it becomes thick and more viscous, this is where the second grade of the oil comes into play, aiding in coating and lubricating internal engine parts.  Gear, axle, and manual transmission oils are rated on a separate SAE viscosity rating system, SAE J306, and should not be confused with engine oil viscosity, because the higher weight rating of these oils doesn't necessarily mean they are heavier in weight than their engine counter parts. To wrap this up, i hope this has given you a little knowledge about the oil(s) you're using in your vehicle. And that you may take this knowledge and bestow it on those who are still learning.    phuketJR
