walked outside the hotel in Greenville, MS to find my pass. side rear window pulled off and my 'ready bag' full of environmental response type stuff along with my tool kits is G O N E, gone. Right now Im waiting for the security supervisor to get here for a report.
My YJ tried to kill me today. I was just cruising down the road and went to stop for a red light and the brake pedal went straight to the floor! I had no trouble stopping up to that intersection and of course, it failed just as I was following an enormous tilt-and-load truck. I was lucky enough to be able to steer around the back of the truck and up and over a snowbank into a gas station before coming to a stop. Scary! Turns out, the brake line to the left front wheel had cracked just where it turns from the framerail into the wheelwell.
I nursed it along using the foot brake to stop and got to Walmart where I bought a set of Vice-Grips and pinched off the cracked line and drove it to the closest Jeep dealer where I left it in disgust. Just this morning I repaired a broken door handle latch and this is what I get for my trouble! It's been like this since I bought the thing... I fix something and within 24 hours, something else lets go.
As I waited for my wife to pick me up, I was eyeing up the leftover '05 TJ's on the dealer's lot... very tempting.
Last saterday I replaced the thermostat, today I just thought about all the things I wanted to do while I drank a pot of coffee. I work on the jeep at my work place and It's been raining all day(1st time since Oct.) so I don't feel like crawling around under it while it's dripping on me .
