So yesterday, I lost my 95 to my soon to be ex wife in a custody battle. Apparently she needed two vehicles to my one... I wanted to thank any and every one that helped me along the way working out the bugs in her! I'm sure the ex appreciates all the help as well! Most of you that gave input were very helpful when it was needed! It's a great group of guys and gals here!

Does not sound fun. Sympathies go to you . Just remember its a hunk of metal at the end of the day. What's the next project going to be?

So you drained the oil? Well maybe drain the tcase oil... when it explodes at least you can just put a new tcase in it when she doesnt want it anymore.

Every threat is an opportunity. Time to be single and live it up.

Custody battle? And she needs 2 vehicles? Tell ya what I'd do. Wire an ordinary timer into the 12V+ feed to the fuel pump, locate it so that only YOU could find it, set it for around 3 hours, then send the beetch on her merry way. She gets some stuff done, but the circuit interruption happens so much later that she has no clue it could've been you that did "something". Mechanic can't figure it out either (he'll find 0 V on the 12V+ side), tell her she needs to replace this, that, it will all add up, and she'll say, "Come get your goddam Jeep!!"

Have a buddy come along to "tow" you around the corner, yank the timer out, start her up, and flip the ex the bird as you happily drive away...

Anyway, that's what I'D do...

I'd just put a differently sized tire on the front end and take a nice drive to cook the VC.

You needed a better lawyer, dude...sorry.

She'll sell it....just wont be to you...so scour the classifieds and have a friend ( one she doesnt know) buy it for almost nothing. You already know what's wrong with it....so let him point those flaws out to her and buy it cheap.

*EDIT*

Well if she doesn't know your ZJ the way you did, she'll be begging you take it back in 6 months when the next gremlin pops up regardless.

I know you guys are joking, but what is being suggested could turn out to be premeditated murder......of his own kids.

Yeah, maybe not suggest things that can cause serious injury/death to his ex-wife, and OTHER PEOPLE.
