Since the temps have been in the negatives for a few days the YJ and the XJ batteries were both DEAD.
I used the ZJ to pull 'em out of the way so a friend could plow my driveway. For free! And he gave me a cold beer to boot!!
Gonna have to take the batteries out in the mernin' and take them to work and charge them.
The MN governor has cancelled all schools Monday due to the fact that the high is supposed to be -15°F
Really wishing I didn't have to cross a bridge over the Mississippi River on foot after I park.
Doing some snow wheelin at The Cliffs. The mud under the snow is solid ice and making this more of a recovery mission. I managed to get stuck once so far, but the days not over yet.
Also slid down a solid ice hill into a big rock and destroyed the front bumper. Looks like a good excuse to upgrade now ;-)
Careful out there. I already posted my story of what happened to us at Cliffs on Wednesday. I got like 2 pics because I kept falling every time I got out of my ZJ. I eventually said f it and stayed inside my Jeep. It drove on the ice way better than any of us could walk on it.
New IAT and EGR + Transducer. Cleaned Throttle body and installed new gaskets for the TB and Airhat. Check engine light has disappeared and the new timing chain has made a difference. Solid transmission mount next.
Im a college graduate and employed and have a Haynes.

I also got the OK to use pics from that ride.
I was waiting for written permission to re-post them from the owner of the photos.
This one is my fave. Weezy looks pissed cuz she couldn't make the crest of the hill...
Being the heaviest rig sucks sometimes.... I broke through the ice....
The scenery was beautiful, the pics do absolutely no justice for the sun glittering through the ice covered trees.
The YJ was a chilly ride. It was -6deg.
This bone stock JKU did awesome!!! I got hooked more than he did....
And one of the XJs broke a u-joint. 20 min on-the-trail shaft removal and he made it out with 3WD
The fender flares on your rig look good, can't tell it was chopped at all. I'm sure you had to trim a bit off to fit 32's on a 3 inch lift. And speaking of which what does 3" BB consist of? I doubt you have a 3 inch spacer crammed in there. Looks like it was a good run. Still can't believe that YJ went topless I love having all the creature comforts in the ZJ while still being capable offroad.
