Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on UCONNECT 430N not working


so I recently had my 430n replaced buy my dealership. the “new” one they put in (I think its a refereb) is having issues. first one is none of the graphics show up. the Jeep logo thats usually in the background is gone and same with the Sirius radio station graphics. I just get a plain black screen. also I can’t upload any music or pictures.it won’t recognize anything on the usb thumb drive. when I check to see whats on the hard drive it just shows dashes beside available space and used like there is no hard drive?

An Abundance of Tires

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on An Abundance of Tires


I am in the process of upgrading my wheels and tires on my 2015 JK…ordering tires from one web vendor and then wheels from a different vendor.

The tires arrived on Monday and the wheels arrived today…however there were 5 tires mounted on the wheels…so I now have 10 315x70x17 tires stacked in my garage, which the wife is none too pleased.

I will be calling the vendor to come pick up the tires on Monday, which unfortunately is going to delay my upgrade while waiting for wheels and tires to be picked up and the wheels without tires to be shipped.

So I am amused at the mistake but frustrated in the delay that it will cause to my upgrade.

Sammy J Releases New Single & Music Video

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Sammy J Releases New Single & Music Video

Born in Australia, Sammy J embraces his Maori and Polynesian roots to create positive and uplifting music. Mixing together island reggae, soul and jazz with heartfelt lyrics, Sammy J’s sound is exhilarating and intoxicating. Now based in the U.S. Sammy J has seemingly exploded on the market selling out venues across the west coast and Hawaii.

With his new single, “Do You”, produced by ChazRox, Sammy J offers another signature soulful performance over a track that is more pop than reggae, with an acoustic intro that transitions into a poppy beat with back-up harmonies outlining a relationship at the end of its magic.

“‘Do You’ is a track that I wrote at the end of one my relationships. I’d been saving it until me and the girl involved were cool again, so we could remain friends. Basically, it’s about two lovers that know they are completely wrong for each other, but can’t seem to let go. It’s almost like the final goodbye.” Sammy J continued on to explain that, “We really tried to capture the intensity and the softness of the subject matter, by blending pop with RB and reggae textures.” You can watch the video for the new single below.

Since 2012, Sammy J has released a string of singles and collaborations in addition to a pair of 8 track albums with Prelude in 2013 and Lion Roar in 2016. He plans to continue releasing singles throughout 2017 with hopes of a new album dropping in the early part of 2018.
You can view his available music catalog on iTunes by clicking HERE!

Below, you can find dates for Sammy J as he continues to tour. Off the stage, Sammy J shows the same commitment giving back to communities, as he works as a social worker when not on the road touring. Sammy J mentors troubled youth and offers them a positive outlet to focus their energy with a music therapy program.

2002 Apex TJ Salvage

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on 2002 Apex TJ Salvage


So, I got a 2002 Tj, Apex ed, from a co worker. He drove it around for quite a while, with a messed up fender and hood. Kept bugging him about fixing it, but he had other priorities.

So went out to smoke one day (Tuesday), looked it over, went inside and made him an offer.

Here it is on Friday


Started working on the hood

Whats causing my jeep to do this?? (video linked)

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on Whats causing my jeep to do this?? (video linked)


So for about a week now my ’08 JKU has been acting funny. When ever I accelerate to get up to highway speeds, my jeep will climb to about 2000 RPMS as normal. Then it’ll stay at about 2500rpm and get stuck there for a few seconds before going back down. And while all this is happening, my jeep is still increasing in speed. I’ve also noticed that now I have to step on the gas a little to get rolling forward in drive. while before my jeep would just roll forward on its own when in drive. I do have a lift and 35’s with stock gears. however I’ve recalibrated the speedo with a Flashcal about a month ago. so I don’t think this is whats causing the problem. Anyone know what’s wrong?

*here’s 2 videos I took of this occurring:

– after doing some research it seems some possible causes for this could be either a bad throttle position sensor or a dirty fuel filter but cant be for certain has anyone experienced something like this?

Losing power when shifting up??

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on Losing power when shifting up??


my ’08 JKU with auto tranny has been acting funny. It’s feels as though im towing something even thought i’m not. When im accelerating to get into 3rd gear (like when going up a steep hill or getting on the freeway) that the rpms will climb steadily to about 2500 where it’ll get stuck there for a few seconds before shooting up to 4000 and then going back down. All the while this is happening my jeeps speed is still increasing. also now i have to actually tap the gas pedal to roll my jeep out of my garage when before i just had to put it in drive and it would roll out on its own. i do have a lift and 35’s with stock gears, however these have been installed for a while and i’ve already used a flashcal to recalibrate the speedo. HOWEVER about a week ago i ran out gas while on the road could this have something to do with it?

– I’ve got 2 videos of this happening on my youtube channel here are the links:
