For some reason, that never crossed my mind while the whole ordeal was going on. I did, however, pull the starter relay when I stopped at a hotel about 50 miles southeast of the city. I figured it would make it harder for someone to hotwire it should they attempt to steal it.
You probably got away with more than your truck. If they will kill each other over whose Koolaid is better they wouldn't hesitate over a vehicle. Whenever I travel I always pull a couple relays as well for added security.

seafoamed it, and then filled up the tank in prep for tomorrows road trip.

No real wheeling to be had, but I get to drive it, so there is that.

Found a leak in the power steering pump reservoir. Guess it needed it anyway with 206k miles. Trans lines are leaking too. The joys of Jeep ownership. I get it, the wife still doesn't.

Sent from...wait, where am I?
