Started to drive it to school. It ate its 5th muffler since I've owned it. So, it's getting parked. Indefinitely.
The Jeep will be sitting until I can afford to rebuild and replace just about everything. I've gone over the dirty dozen, every single item, at least once. Three times for PCMs. So I'm just gonna go through and replace everything, at whatever that costs me. I may not drive this Jeep again for a couple years.
The new project list includes:
Front axle rebuild and regear
8.8 rear axle and locker
Replace all suspension components
New fuel system
All new fuel injection components (Mopar only)
All new brakes, including repair/replace ABS controller
All new front lights
It's going to cost me thousands and thousands of dollars to do all of this. It's going to take a few years of doing nothing but, before all of that is done, at the current pace. I'm seriously considering dropping out of school and doing something practical with my life, rather than pursuing an empty business degree for another 4 years. I don't yet know what's going to happen. Just that I have plans for what I need, and a big empty spot in my heart because as much as I love this damned Jeep, nothing I've done so far has made it even consider for a second to just keep working, and everyone I know, literally everyone, is constantly telling me to sell it for scrap. And I just can't do that. She's my baby, and I can't just get rid of my baby.
With that said, you probably won't be seeing me for awhile. Between school, work, and not doing anything with my ZJ, I just don't have time or reason to be on anymore. So, until then guys.
