Started rewiring a 99 dodge neon PDC for the ZJ. It will be the accessory block to clean up the gross wiring jobs, all fuses and relays in one spot. Additionally, this is a fun project to learn how PDCs work and strengthen my wiring knowledge.

I'm gonna let it cool down check the level again and put the cap on and see what happens.

Yea it's all within reach, just a few bolts and volia we had the motor completely out had to to motor mounts anyways, but with it out it's very easy to do everything nice having the rear main fixed and new gasket no more oil leaks lol.

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.
