What if she was in the car with you?

If the car is in her name, then technically, you should be ok driving it, considering the registered owner has a valid exemption for the tint.

Dumped some leak detector in the A/C maybe the leak will show up using a Tracer light.
The Condenser look really wet I suspect that's my issue.
Anyway time will tell.

Planned a trip to my parents to install a 242. Also need to put 10W30 back in it, hit 75PSI on the way into work today due to the colder temps (34F right now) and the 15W40 in it right now.

That's why I asked.

In all honesty, I wish I could buy it. I think it'd make an awesome addition to my vehicle collection. However, I already have 4 vehicles at my house and I highly doubt I could talk the wife into another. If only I could talk her into getting rid of her Terrain... Yeah, that's not going to happen... lol.

I locked up all 4 wheels and put it sideways down a 2 lane road, missed both guard rails thankfully. I need to rethink the ABS removal. I hate forest rats.

This happened 100 feet before my driveway, I'm always out there calling the cops for people, it's a major deer crossing area.

But yes, although the ZJ is lacking in the brake dept, it is possible, in a panic situation, to lock all 4 tires. When it comes to deer, I don't swerve, I try to keep going staight, the deer *usually* get out of the way at the last second, but I'm hard on the brakes, slowing the beast as fast as I can. I believe that most deer collisions are actually caused by the driver swerving just as the deer makes it move. (to many variables to actually say it's definate) ABS may have helped in this instance, by keeping me pointed in the same direction. But I missed it, thats all that matters.
