Well here it is October 7th, 2019 and no huge news about the Rubi, other than it's in the shop today to see about a engine code I keep getting. I'm pretty sure it's an O2 sensor. I'm also pretty sure the exhaust needs some attention, among other things. The other things are going to have to wait. I need to give the suspension some tlc, especially things like the sway bar bushings and shocks. I don't have any plans to get rid of Rubi anytime in the near future, or distant future for that matter. I would like to join a group of guys on the Rubicon Trail in the fall of 2020, and to do that I'm going to have to pay a bit more attention to the Jeep.



I did attend Jeepers Creepers at the Psycho Silo Saloon, in Langley IL, back in June.

Yes, October already - where did the year go? I'm looking forward to some better weather to play in the shop.

I don't have a shop, so I guess I'll "look forward" to playing in the snow. If the weather in the north west is a sign of things to come, I'll be playing in the snow sooner than later.

Filled the Jeep with gas yesterday, averaged 16.4 mpg, with a good mix of city and hwy driving. I haven't seen 16 mpg in many, many years...which is how long I've been having the engine light, exhaust leak issue. So, it appears the fix was money well spent.

Hi Jeff,


I also own a 2006 LJR, but only 35k miles. I just found your thread and read all of it. Thanks a million for taking the time to post your story; I really enjoyed it. Now, when I win the lottery, I know what to do with all that cash!


Thanks again,
Steve

Glad to be of service....lol. If I win the Lottery the Rubi is getting a complete overhaul.

I'm sure that feels like victory.

Yesterday I noticed it's been almost a year since I wheeled the Rubi. I was at The Badlands Off Road Park on 123018. I may have to make a New Years resolution.
