The 2.5 ton Pittsburgh Rapid Pump Floor Jack from Harbor Freight that I bought a couple years ago for $69.99 and was still in the box until today. I don't think the 2 ton aluminum low profile jack would've done the job!

Installed the rear AVS Window Vent Shades. Easy-Peasy! Got the windows up to let the adhesive set for 24 hours. These are In Channel visors but have adhesive tape to hold them to the inner wall of the channel securely.

I'll do the fronts this weekend. They're a little more involved regarding installation placement.

The Michelin LTX A/T 2 tires that came on the wheels are supposed to have 60K mile tread life warranty. We'll see as these are used. Looks to be at least 70% tread life left. Can't really tell as I don't have a new tire to compare to.

Way better than the mismatched tires I had on there when I bought it! I don't think there was a matching Brand/Type on all four corners!

Perusing RockAuto for Bilstein shocks for the Beast! Thinking Amazon might almost be a better deal as RockAuto has been charging tax and stupid shipping when parts come from multiple warehouses. That universal 5% discount doesn't cut it!

Got the new Mopar Combo Coolant Recovery/Windshield Washer Tank in this week. Of course it doesn't have any other necessary pieces like caps, etc. I need to order grommets for the Windshield washer level sensor and washer pump! Will use the the original caps for now and order new ones later.

Got a new door lock actuator coming in for the drivers front door. It's pretty lazy locking!

Excellent fit on the AVS Vent Visors. No gaps even at the corners. $49.79 from RockAuto.

Interstate battery cranks the Durango vigorously after 5 days idle. Funk AAP and their AutoCrap Gold batteries and their retarded Store employees who think they know all about batteries!

While working on the Durango this past weekend I took a look under the front to check on replacement of the Air Dam and the Fog lights. The FSM indicates the bumper cover needs to come off to replace those items. Looking underneath, It looks like they can be done from underneath without any additional parts removal WooHoo! Another project for later this week.

Getting the trashed wheel stud replaced tomorrow along with moving the RWOL outside on the one tire. Basically a mount/balance on that. It'll show Michelin outside like the 3 other tires. w00t!

Then a Road Trip up to XNA airport....about 440 miles round trip on Thursday. Beer money in mileage!

New Wheel stud and Lug nut installed on passenger rear. I'm "Safe" again! Also had the tire turned around on the wheel for that same corner to have the raised white letters facing out like the other 3 tires. Grand total of $40 including parts and labor! w00t!

Doing a "Static Heat" test on the LED Fog Light bulbs. Figure I'll let them run in the housing for an hour on the counter and see how hot they get.


Original Halogen bulb on the left. New LED bulb on the right for size comparison.



See if the tiny high rpm fan at the base of the LED works or not!

Michelin tires seem a little quieter than the old tires. Need to get the two fronts balanced, got a little steering wheel vibration/shake at 70-75 mph.
