Washing the outside (with a top on) means the inside is getting wet too.

YKYDAYJW the guys at the part store are surprised because you are not there for your Jeep, but because you are helping a buddy with his bad alternator.

Mines a combination of motor oil, gas, and burnt juniper needles. Either way a beautiful aroma

Sent from my phone. Because I should be doing something more important.

89 YJ.. My first jeep and I won't let it go. ▀||||▀

Current Project: None... I disgust myself.

I was listening the TV in the background today. Heard the bugatti veyron gets 2.5 mpg at the track or driven hard. Whatever words they used.

Made me think of a comment I saw on a video of a jeep trying to throttle its way out of mud: "Whatre you getting there, 6 inches to the gallon?"

Jeep parts get jealous. I replaced the water pump and the radiator got jealous. Fixed that and the harmonic balancer demanded attention.

Wondering which parts will need love next...

YKYDAYJ: When you have to go to the chevy, dodge, ford, (whatever)dealer to get new replacement OEM Jeep parts. Apparently the ignition key is a Chevy tumbler assembly, which is why the keys were stamped Chevy at Home Despot.

I may have to draw the line about the Isuzu dealer, however.
