So i jsut cleaned off my new donor OEM fog lights.... and OMG.... They've NEVER been opened up before!!!


The gasket on the inside is a nice dark brown clean color, the grommet on the back side still intact, and on the inside is clean, rust free bare metal!!!! This is like the gold mine with the fog lights. Also still had the OEM bulb, not blown either!

that must be one big s.o.b. pothole ! i forgot your in my area and we deal with some deep ones

on topic:the plow guy is a jeeper and made some sweet snow obstacles so i drove in 2 ft of snow today and skated around in a few parking lots drifting with what appeared to be excellence but was really just my baby taking good care of me , like only an awd zj can

had tho o.d. button in green (not eco ) mode and got about 20 degrees sideways at 40mph a few times in traffic (dumb)

Bought a head gasket kit, water pump, thermostat, head bolts, 1/2 12 point deep socket, u joint socket adapter, 6 inch 1/2 inch drive extension, torque wrench, and a Haynes manual in preparation for my g/f's head gasket job. Also picked up some door pins, a center console to Frankenstein her armrest (PO managed to rip hers off), driver side rear inner wheel-well shroud and a drivers side front fender cladding to replace the cracked one. Anddddd i'll be heading back to the store tomorrow because i know im forgetting some sealant and some loctite and some anti-seize!

Yeah, they have pretty good weight distribution, so they're pretty grippy and balanced in snow. And the wheelbase is long enough to be stable in corners in the slick stuff.

ZJ's love snow


"aut viam inveniam aut faciam"

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Snow God

This morning I stopped and helped out four people who were stuck in the 10 1/2" of snow we got last night. Not one once of trouble plowing through it with the jeep. Hooah!

GO PACKERS!!
