Jeez this weather is messing up cars faster than an overzealous 16 year old can molest a stock civic. Counting myself that's 4 people I know in just a little more than a week that have been in weather related accidents. I don't what's making this December different.

This^^

I had an 85 P/U and a 4runner, both with 22re's the and solid axles. P/U was on a 10" lift and 33's....beast. I joked it would climb a tree.... But inevitably met it's match against a phone pole. Moved the front tire under the passenger door, by way of bent frame, and drove the front driveshaft through the tcase......and it still drove me home! Parted it out and got all my $$ back.

Threw in a new TPS, cleaned my AIC and it got rid of my throttle hesitation. Adjusted my shifter cable to rule out another thing before replacing the gov pressure sensor without luck.

Thats an OLD video but shows just what a Jeep can take and what it can do in stock form. It was a waste though. That thing lasted a long time, was obviously in good shape before that.

Drifted it in the empty, snow-covered parking lot after work hours(with the boss' permission, of course).
Had some fun flinging Weezy's arse out for the length of the lot.

Then I came to a stop, in 4HI, wheels cut all the way to the left, and floor it.
4WD donuts in one spot, as if it were on a turntable

I can't wait until we have snow banks I can climb and park on.....

I have a feeling my winch is gonna get quite a workout this winter!

My ZJ's only problem is the loose nut behind the steering wheel....

I prefer this version of the killing a Cherokee video:


As for it being a waste, I'm under the impression it had serious engine problems and I was pretty sure it's a 2WD. It's just an early XJ, its death will not be mourned.

Drove it an hour to work then an hour home !
SNOW MY a$$ ! LOL

Got home and figured out why my Rear Defogger didn't work
There is no relay in the panel ha ha ha
Now I need to figure out the cheapest way to fix it beside buying a new relay or wasting time going to the Junkyard to try and find a good relay.
