grinding cold start?

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on grinding cold start?

i’m pretty sure its the engine as ive listened throughout last winter. I’m using recommedned 5/20 but think its time to change for winter.

I have not checked the pressure and the engine has reliably run temp-wise very well. I’m in nyc and notice when the temp dips below 50 degrees it grinds on starting, but it only just started this way, and we do not have extreme temps .it only happens once after a night of resting in cooler temps, and not on other starts after that.

Im confused because people recommend heavier oil in colder temps but, to me, if its grinding upon start up, maybe lighter oil will circulate easier.

i have not gone as far as an analysis and would hope the wisdom here would supersede any complicated steps.

Angela Hunte’s “In Da Mornin” Background:

It’s hard to believe that R.A.W. is Angela Hunte’s first release of her own music. She’s been producing and collaborating on music for decades and it’s nice to get an intimate peak at an artist who has seen success in her work with Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg to Britney Spears, Amy Winehouse to reggae-rocks beloved Slightly Stoopid.

Her debut EP features 8 songs with vocal guest appearances by Tarrus Riley, Taranchyla Brooklyn Rose. Hunte’s longtime musical partner DJ Buddha handles the majority of production, with assists from Jerry Wonda (The Fugees, Santana), Dready (Busta Rhymes, Vybz Kartel), house DJ Gregor Saito and reggaeton producer Nesty

“For me, ‘raw’ is starting over,” Hunte says of the title, which is short for “Reasons and Words.” “I am putting skin back on layer by layer that I have had to shed. I feel like I peeled off these layers of bitterness and let it go with this project.”

Despite Hunte’s background in hip-hop, pop, soca, among many other styles, the steady constant of R.A.W. is saoked in reggae over very smooth tones and soulful deliveries.

When Slightly Stoopid producer engineer James Wisner contacted us about this release, one of the first songs that stood out to us was track 3 with “In Da Mornin.” The song is a reggae riddim with a fun intro around bouncing vocals that ends up being the repeated chorus throughout the track.

When discussing the song here’s what Angela Hunte told The Pier: “In Da Mornin’” is about a moment. The ‘morning after’ is always a time when two people can share a brief moment alone. Whether it’s reflecting on the night before or making that decision to stay or go, the mornings always bring light into any situation. The production is so flawless to me. It has a great balance of culture and mainstream sounds.”

Angela Hunte Background:

Angela Hunte, the Brooklyn-born, Trinidad-raised artist began her recording career in the ‘90s, as a member of 7669, a Motown Records girl group whose style could be described as TLC or Salt N Pepa by way of Bone Thugs and Onyx. Following their sole album, 7669 East from a Bad Block, she learned the art of songwriting in the studio with iconic hip-hop producers Easy Mo Bee (best known for his work with the Notorious B.I.G.) and Salaam Remi, who would later bring Hunte into the studio with Amy Winehouse and Nas. Remember those “little kids” singing on Nas’ “I Can” (from 2002’s God’s Son)? Those were all Angela Hunte, putting her uniquely-pitched, high-register vocals to creative use.

The capstone of her writing career came in 2009 when her song “Empire State of Mind” was recorded by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. The track, which Hunte also co-produced with Al Shux, became the first ever No. 1 for Jay-Z, spending five weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, and winning multiple awards at the 2011 Grammys. “Empire State of Mind” now sits next to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” among the most iconic NYC anthems, having soundtracked storied championships by the New York Yankees and Giants. It’s still the only pop No. 1 in Jay’s illustrious career.

Working with Diddy and Jay-Z brought things full circle for Angela, both of whom she knew during her youth in Brooklyn. When Jay-Z mentions 560 State Street on “Empire State Of Mind,” he’s referencing the apartment building where he and Hunte resided in the 1990s.

When Major Lazer were tapped to create a reggae soundtrack for Snoop Dogg’s transformation into “Snoop Lion,” Diplo recruited Hunte to join a team of songwriters and producers working in Jamaica. She wrote seven of the twelve songs on 2013’s Reincarnated, appearing as a featured vocalist on lead single “Here Comes the King,” among other tunes. An appearance in Vice’s documentary on the project enhanced her visibility, leading to further reggae work with acts such as Gyptian and Slightly Stoopid.

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on User experience with Drop In Filters

Okay, so I am looking at these dry drop in filters.
Im in a toss up between the Rugged Ridge for $55 CAD and the aFe one for about $79 CAD both on Amazon.

Who has had experience with either and what do you recommend.

Note: I am just looking for a filter that will allow me to re-use it, I don’t expect any MPG gain or performance gain, but if I do.. great!

Please enlighten me

Buffett to perform on NCIS New Orleans

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off on Buffett to perform on NCIS New Orleans

From Entertainment Weekly “NCIS: New Orleans will feature Jimmy Buffett performance

The men and women of NCIS: New Orleans are about to take a visit to Margaritaville.

EW has learned exclusively that Jimmy Buffett will perform as himself in the season 4 premiere of the Scott Bakula starrer.

“It’s New Orleans, baby! You can’t represent the city properly unless you celebrate music,” says showrunner Brad Kern about Buffet’s appearance. “On top of that, it separates us from the pack and makes our show a little more unique.”

The premiere episode is titled “Rogue Nation” and picks up six weeks after Dwayne Pride’s (Bakula) take-down of the corrupt Mayor Hamilton. Pride remains on probation while his team is monitored by Supervisory Special Agent Paula Boyd (Becky Ann Baker).

Buffett is a regular fixture around the halls of CBS. He’s also played Frank Bama since 2011 on Hawaii Five-0.

NCIS: New Orleans airs at 10 p.m. ET Tuesdays on CBS.

Good Jeep Books.

Posted in Jeep Wranglers | Comments Off on Good Jeep Books.

I’m a complete newbie when it comes to working on vehicles, but I have this Jeep now and I’m pumped to work on it and do some modifications.

I learn best by reading, so I’m looking for some helpful books on:

(1) The basics of working on cars [proper uses for tools; what type of tools are needed etc];
(2) The Wrangler JK more specifically [is there something better than Chilton/Haynes, but that is less of a pain in the ass than the FSM?]; and lastly
(3) Any books that discuss popular Jeep mods.

I’m just looking for the best most easily accessible sources of information. Also, please share your favorite websites and youtube channels.
